Today I am going to give you some of the best mickey mouse birthday party ideas. It is especially for those who are planning for a mickey mouse themed party for the kids. So explore some of the best ideas from decorations to activities to food.
Mickey Mouse is one of the most loved cartoon characters for the past 80 years now! Right from my childhood till date, kids are simply in love with Mickey Mouse and his world. As a kid, I have attended innumerable birthday parties which had Mickey Mouse as their theme and at every party, I had a great time.
Birthday parties, with Mickey Mouse as the theme, are still quite in vogue. Out of 10 birthday parties for kids that are thrown these days, at least 2 still have Mickey Mouse as their theme. However, unlike my childhood parties, the parties these days are far more grand, and thanks to the fact that Mickey Mouse accessories are very easily available these days, the parties are able to build a much more authentic Mickey Mouse world, than they were able to do in our time.
Mickey Mouse is one of the most used party themes and therefore, any parent would find it quite hard to know what they should do at these parties, which will help in making their party different and more special than the other Mickey Mouse parties. Keeping in mind this confusion of the parents, I have decided to help you out in planning a perfect Muckey Mouse party.
There are many things that have to be taken care of in order to plan a good birthday party, and when you have Mickey Mouse as the theme for the party, the preparations for the same require a little more planning and detailing. Below are some points which if you keep in mind while organizing this Mickey Mouse party, you would be able to throw a grand and a very successful birthday party for your kid.
1. Venue Decorations
Mickey is associated with certain specific colors like red, royal blue, yellow and black. All the decorations you use at the birthday party venue should be in these colors only. These colors are a part of the image of Mickey Mouse and as soon as the kids will see these colors, they are immediately going to squeal out Mickey Mouse in excitement.
There are some really huge and beautiful Mickey Mouse banners that are available in the markets these days. If you do not like what is present in the market, you an even get a specially designed Mickey Mouse banner for your party and make sure to place this banner right at the entrance, so that it is visible from a distance. Even before the guests arrive at the party venue, they will be able to see the banner from a distance, and they will immediately get in the party mood.
There are many other Mickey Mouse accessories that are available in the market like life size images of the Mickey Mouse and its other characters, stickers, posters, face masks, etc. Make sure to use as many of these accessories as possible to give every inch of the venue the feel of the world of Mickey Mouse. However, be careful not to cluster the place with too many things and make the party venue start to look ugly.
2. Table Decorations At The Party Venue
When we talk about the decoration of the party venue, people generally concentrate on the decoration of the walls and the entrance of the venue, but along the tables and chairs that would be placed and used at the venue, also need to be decorated properly.
It is important that the tables and the chairs that you place at the venue should also be covered with cloth which is in a combination of colors blue, red, yellow or black. This will make them look like a part of the Mickey Mouse theme. You can also use black, red or yellow balloons for the decorations. You can also place Mickey Mouse centerpieces on the tables. Anything and everything that is laid out on these tables, try to make sure, that it in accordance with the theme of Mickey Mouse only.
It is the tables, chairs and other furniture placed at the venue which contributes maximum towards the look of the venue and if you do not decorate them as per the theme of the party, your party will never be able to get the right feel or look.
3. Games And Activities At A Mickey Mouse Party
No kids party is complete without proper and fun games, and when you have a fun party theme of Mickey Mouse, it becomes even more important that you plan for games which are not just as per the theme of the party, but are great fun to play for the kids as well.
There are many games that you can make the kids play like you can place a poster of Mickey Mouse on a wall with its nose missing, and the kids have to pin its nose back, with their eyes blindfolded or you can arrange for icing decorations which the kids can use to decorate their own personal Mickey Mouse shaped cupcakes.
Make sure the games are so much fun that they bring a huge smile to the faces of all the little Mickey Mouse fans present at the party.
4. Mickey Mouse Favors
Return gifts or favors are something that all kids look forward to whenever they attend a birthday party. More than anything else, the kids are also excited about what they will be receiving as a favor at the end of the birthday party, and therefore, you need to make sure that your favor is in keeping with the Mickey Mouse theme and yet it should be loved by the kids.
There are many Mickey mouse favors and goodies that are available in the market, like Mickey Mouse stickers, pencils, pens, erasers, rulers, whistles, caps, etc. You need to get creative and prepare a goodie bag for the kids which they will love with these Mickey Mouse accessories.
5. Mickey Mouse Leading The Party
A Mickey Mouse party can never be complete if there is no Mickey Mouse present in the house. You can ask someone to dress up as Mickey Mouse and meet, greet and interact with kids.
The kids at the party would love to get their pictures clicked with this moving and talking Mickey Mouse.
6. Dressing Up The Birthday Boy Or Girl As Mickey Mouse
It would also look nice if the birthday boy or girl is dressed up as Mickey Mouse. Make sure that besides giving your kid the typical black and red dress with white polka dots, also remember to arrange for the cute little round ears of Mickey Mouse for completing the look.
A Mickey Mouse without his ears can just not look real or cute. So do not forget the ears.
7. Dressing Up Everyone For The Mickey Mouse Party
While you make the birthday boy dress up as Mickey Mouse, you can ask the guests to dress up in other characters from the Mickey Mouse series. Thus, while the girls can be asked to dress up as Minnie Mouse, the boys can choose to be Donald Duck.
If this is not possible, you can request the guests at least come in dresses which are in a color scheme that is as per the theme of Mickey Mouse.
This will really help in giving your party the perfect atmosphere for a Mickey Mouse party.
8. Birthday Party Invites
Birthday party invitations are one of the first things that one needs to plan when throwing a party.
These invitations do not just inform the people about when and where the party is going to be, but they also let the guests know what the theme of the party is and what they can expect from the party. Hence, it is always better to get personalized and customized birthday invitation cards made which would reflect the theme of the party properly.
Remember, if your card does not convey the theme of the party properly, then the guests would not take your theme seriously and any requests made by you for the guests to come to the party, dresses as per the theme, will be easily ignored by them.
9. Thank You Cards
From the invitation cards to the actual party, when you have made sure that everything is done as per the theme of the party, everyone automatically starts to expect that even the thank you cards that you would send out after the party, would be in accordance with this theme only.
10. Food At The Party
The food is the heart and soul of any party, including a kid’s birthday party.
Besides ensuring that the food served at your party is tasty, you must also try to make sure that the presentation of these food items is in the shape and color of Mickey Mouse.
Also remember cheese is Mickey’s favorite food, so you can plan on setting aside a special table with a variety of cheese served on it.
11. Birthday Cake
The birthday cake is the center of attraction at a birthday party and everyone expects this cake to be in the shape of Mickey Mouse only.
Hence, you need to make sure that you get the design of your cake right. Hire the services of a good baker for baking you a pretty Mickey Mouse cake for the party.
12. Sweets And Treats
More than the main course, the kids are more interested in the sweets and treats counter.
Mickey Mouse lollipops to crispy rice Mickey Mouse ears make sure that every savory that is placed on this table represents Mickey Mouse in one way or the other.
You can even give special names to these sweets which are in tune with the Mickey Mouse theme.
13. Mickey Mouse Hair Bands
The cute ears of Mickey Mouse are the most identifiable feature of this character, and there are hair bands in the shape of these ears available in the market.
As soon as the kids arrive for the party, you can present each one of them with these hair bands to wear for the rest of the party.
14. Mickey Mouse Music
Although at kids’ birthday parties, the laughter and screams of the kids is enough noise, yet you will have to arrange for some music to play in the background, in order to give your party the right feel.
Choose only the typical and original Mickey Mouse music from Disney to play at your party.
15. Photo Booth
Everyone loves to get clicked and take selfies these days. You can get a proper, but a small photo booth made at the venue with some really nice Mickey Mouse photos and life size cut out placed there.
Trust me, this would be the most visited and busy corner of your party.
