If your little girl loves Minnie Mouse as much as mine, here are a few fun décor ideas for a Pink Minnie Party!
If you’re a regular here, you know my little girl just turned 2 years old! She just loves Minnie Mouse so we threw an all girl, all pink, all Minnie Mouse birthday party a few weeks ago to celebrate!
I posted all about the food I made for the party a few weeks ago, but today is all about party decorations! I like to be crafty, but I don’t make anything too complicated or time consuming. Incredibly, I made almost everything with craft paper I found at Hobby Lobby! It’s really amazing how many easy ideas I came up with for very little time, money and effort.
The great thing about these ideas too is that they can easily be converted to Mickey decorations by using red and yellow paper and removing the bows! If you have a Minnie or Mickey lover in your house and are planning a themed party for them, you should definitely give some of these easy ideas a try!
Minnie Doily Garland (shown in top photo)
I love this garland for so many reasons! It’s cheap and easy to make, yet adds such a fun touch! Take some pink doilies, fold them in half over a piece of white yarn and glue them down. Then I used a black marker to draw three circles to make a Mickey shape. Luckily for me, Emily doesn’t yet distinguish between Minnie and Mickey, so I didn’t need to go to any trouble to add a bow! #MomWin
I love party hats, don’t you? The only thing I don’t love is that I can never find the right color or pattern I want at the store. When I came across this tutorial at Lacey Placey I knew I had to give them a try! This is the second party I’ve made them for. I first made them for this Valentine’s Day Party, where I also share a few additional tips on how to make them.
Minnie T-W-O Letters
I thought this would be a fun way to combine her 2nd birthday with Minnie! You’ll need cardboard letters and craft paper. Trace the letters on the craft paper and cut out. Glue the paper onto the letter. I used a drinking glass to make mouse ears and attached those and a sparkly bow on the “T.” Super easy, right?
Just like the other crafts here, these were really easy! I took some pink paper and folded it over to make a little table tent. Then I made some Minnie Mouse shapes with black paper. I just free-handed the shape to make a template, then cut out a bunch of them and glued them onto the pink table tents. Voila! Now everyone knows what each dish is!
Minnie Mouse Chair Decorations
I based these off of the chair decorations I did for my Valentine’s Day party. I used a plate and two drinking glasses to trace on black paper to get perfect circles. Then I added a pink bow and glued the entire thing onto some white paper. I punched a hole in the top and looped through some white ribbon. Once again, they’re really easy to make and adds a fun touch to the table décor!
Minnie Mouse Hanging Fan
This was a last minute idea. I kept seeing paper fans at the store, but for some reason didn’t buy them. The night before the party I looked at our large kitchen window and thought “gosh, it’d be really nice to have one of those fans right there!!” Of course, I didn’t have time to go to the store and buy one at this point…
What does a creative mama do? Make one of course! I took 3 large, square pieces of craft paper, folded them fan style and then folded the entire fan in half. Once you have all three made, tape the edges together to make one large fan and use some paper clips in the middle to tighten everything. I taped one of the Minnie chair decorations on top to cover up the mess from taping everything together. I punched a hole in the top and looped through some yarn to hang up.
I realize I’m not being super detailed here… why is that? Next time I’d buy them instead if I had the option. The pink craft paper cost almost $3 and I saw packs of 3 fans for sale usually around $4-$5. Suggestion – buy the fans and then add the Minnie décor if you really want that extra Minnie touch!
I hope you like these ideas and maybe found one or two to try if you’re throwing a Minnie or Mickey party for your little one! Like I said for most of these ideas, they were super easy and inexpensive to make!
