I cannot believe that my oldest child, Danika, is now 4 years old! Time flies!!! This year she decided that she wanted a Minnie Mouse themed Birthday party. I was so excited as Minnie Mouse is a really fun theme to do! I just love planning my kids Birthday parties. I tend to go overboard and this year was no different. Since we have now moved to a bigger house we were able to host the party at our house this year rather than at a community center. The party was a blast and we had about 45 people at the party! That’s what you get when your husband comes from a big Italian family. Our Birthday parties are like a small wedding lol. A bit overwhelming perhaps to those that aren’t used to a huge family!
We got this adorable 54″ Disney Minnie Airwalker Jumbo Balloon which was a huge hit (no pun intended!). Isn’t she adorable? It was the perfect way to welcome our guests to the party! Each child had a chance to take their picture with her which was great! We purchased a helium tank to blow her up and we were able to blow her up along with all of the balloons that we received in our deluxe Minnie Mouse party kit from Birthday Express without running out of helium. She was easy to inflate and lasted forever! She is still hanging out in Danika’s room! There are little cardboard weights that attach to the bottom of her feet to keep her grounded. She is SO cool and I highly recommend having an air walker balloon at your next party. The kids loved her!
Also waiting to welcome our guests to the party was this huge personalized Birthday banner which also matched our Minnie Mouse theme! I have always ordered my personalized Birthday banners from Birthday Express and I have NEVER been disappointed with how they turn out. They are the nicest quality banners which are printed in high definition on heavy duty vinyl so they are durable enough to withstand serious kids-play and all types of weather. Banners also feature metal grommets for easy hanging indoors and out. We used Command hooks to attach ours to our wall without damaging the wall. It worked great! You would expect a high definition, quality banner like this to cost an arm and a leg but surprisingly prices range from $15.99-$39.99 depending on the size you choose. It’s a great value!
I made Danika this really easy Minnie Mouse Birthday cake too! Isn’t it cute? I used 4 of the hot pink candles included in the deluxe party kit as well. She loved her cake!
Since I just can’t help but give myself a million things to do, I also made Minnie cupcakes! Cute huh? More to come on those next week!
The thing that Danika was MOST excited for was the Minnie Mouse Pinata! I love the pull string pinatas and if you haven’t given them a try yet then you should! They are perfect for little kids since there is no bat swinging involved!
The kids simply pull the string, one at a time. Only one string will open the pinata and release the candy so the suspense is great. We lined up the kids and they each got to go through the line, some more than once until the right string was pulled!
Once the lucky string was pulled the candy rained down! Don’t forget to hand out bags for the kids to collect candy in. After the party I asked Aiden if he had fun. His response was “Candy fell on the floor!!”. Apparently the pinata made the biggest impression on him as well 🙂
Our party was a huge hit with the kids and the adults! Everyone had a great time and I loved hosting it! Birthday Express has always been my go to party supply site and the only site I’ve used to supply my kids Birthday parties. Once again they helped me throw an over the top party for my daughter and they didn’t let me down! I highly recommend their products for your next party!
