The Complete Minnie Mouse Birthday Party Guide

Ultimate fans of Miss Minnie Mouse must have at least one Minnie Mouse birthday party in their lifetime to not only celebrate their big day, but also celebrate their love of one of popular culture’s most beloved animated icons. Whether you are interested in throwing a Minnie Mouse birthday party for a friend, a child or yourself, use this Complete Minnie Mouse Birthday Party Guide to throw the Minniest birthday bash!

The Cake

Other than the birthday honoree, the cake is the star of any birthday party. When selecting a cake for your Minnie Mouse soirée, first consider the number of guests in attendance. If a large guest list demands a full sheet or multi tier cake, use Minnie Mouse toy cake toppers to add a special touch. If your cake is one layer with a smooth, flat surface of icing, talk to your baker about adding a photo transfer of your favorite image of Minnie Mouse onto the cake. You may also decorate your cake with an edible Minnie Mouse topper made from a wafer. For an additional twist, break from the tradition of square, circular and rectangular shaped cakes by opting for a Minnie Mouse birthday party cake shaped like Minnie’s head, her famous bow or a high heel.

The Food

Food for your Minnie Mouse birthday party should be as dainty and delicate as Minnie herself. Small bites of food like trays of cut veggies and fruits are perfect for partygoers to munch on as they mingle and enjoy games. Girly tea sandwiches punched out with flower, heart and other pretty shaped cookie cutters would also get a Minnie stamp of approval. Since Minnie is a mouse after all, you should offer a spread of cheeses and crackers for a comical and delicious addition to the food table. To complement the cake, serve sweet treats like pink and white or red and white cupcakes to match Minnie’s dress, and let guests decorate large Minnie-shaped sugar cookies.

The Decor

Finding decorations for a Minnie Mouse birthday party is as easy as finding hay in a haystack, thanks to party supply websites like Party City, Birthday Direct, Birthday Express and Birthday Supply Depot. These websites offer a host of Minnie Mouse party supplies and decorations including balloons, streamers, table covers, utensils, cups and plates. For the Minnie Mouse decor shopper looking for a one click shopping experience, Party City offers Minnie Mouse party kits with prepackaged decor and supplies to serve eight to 16 guests.

The Favors

Guests love receiving party favors to take home and enjoy once the birthday celebration has ended. Send off your guests in style with their very own set of Minnie Mouse ears, which you could hand make or purchase from a novelty or costume shop. Also, you could purchase packs of Minnie Mouse favors from party supply stores and load them into goodie or grab bags. Party City’s website offers Minnie Mouse themed “Spa Day” favor packs, as well as an assortment of Minnie Mouse inspired items like bubbles, pencils and pencil sharpeners, memo pads, bouncy balls, activity books, temporary tattoos, paddle balls, costume jewelry and more!

The Games

A birthday bash is never complete without fun and entertaining games. You can thrill partygoers with Minnie Mouse birthday party games like pin the ears on Minnie Mouse for younger guests, or a Minnie Mouse trivia quiz for tweens, teens and adults. For a unisex party, have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse style scavenger hunt and offer guests mouseketools to aid them in their search for prizes. If the party has an all-female guest list, give the gals bags of ribbon, fabric, glue, glitter and other sparkly embellishments to design their own Minne Mouse inspired bow and award a prize to the best designer.
