Show your Disney side and bring the magic of Disney to your home this summer with a themed party. If your summer plans don’t include a trip to the Magic Kingdom, no worries. We have budget friendly ideas for food, games and decor to throw an at-home Disney themed party for kids of all ages.
Decorate Like Disney
Decorate your table using a red, black and white color theme to mimic Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Use a tiered cupcake stand as a centerpiece.
- Use red and white polka dot cupcake liners and bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes.
- Add a handful of Oreo cookies to the frosting for a cookies and cream topping.
- Cut the cookies in half to create Mickey ears on your cupcakes.
- Customize a pack of Mickey Mouse ear headbands with red polka dot ribbons.
- Draw your kids to the party with these cute red and white mini lollipops.
- Put together photo props and let the kids go crazy!
Make Your Party Interactive
