Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

Fun Minnie Mouse Birthday Party Ideas!

I created these invitations using my silhouette cutter to cut out the Minnie Mouse head and ears. It was so easy to let the machine cut everything out. The invitations were very cute and super easy!



I was given an old Mickey Mouse cake pan and was able to turn Mickey Mouse into Minnie Mouse pretty easily. I used canned chocolate frosting for the brown and then used a homemade frosting recipe for the rest. This took me most of the morning, but was worth it.

I found a cute tutorial on how to make your own Minnie Mouse pinata. Check it out here: At Second Street. Using just a cardboard box, tape, tissue paper, and crepe paper. It was super cute and lots of fun.

Instead of taking the time to make cute Minnie and Mickey party hats, I just asked the kids to bring their own Mickey Ears if they had them. I had a few extras that I scrounged up for those who didn't have any yet. The birthday girl wore her Minnie Mouse shirt and ruffle bum pants that I made for her for our trip to Disneyland.
We hooked the pinata up to the volleyball poles. The little yellow bat didn't make a dent in it so we got out the metal bat. The kids did a little damage there, but not enough (I guess I made it a little too tough.) So we let the adults have a go at it until all the candy was out of it. The pinata was the perfect activity to keep the little kids and the adults entertained.

  1. Danica, thanks so much for inviting me over to check out your party. It looks like you all had a great time. You did such a good job with everything. I love that the pinata was too strong.
    Best wishes,
