Minion Themed Party Ideas

My years of throwing birthday parties for little kids is over but I enjoy helping others throw them for their kids. We partnered with Oriental Trading to throw Mason a Minion Themed Birthday Party in August and it was a hit. His love for his beloved Minions (especially Kevin) is adorable and of course he has to take him everywhere with him. So when it was time for his party him Mom knew it had to be Minions all of the way.
Here is a peek into our Minion Themed Party!
One of the things that I love about Oriental Trading is that they have everything you need to throw themed parties at reasonable prices. We were able to pick up lots of goodies for the party including this adorable tablecloth, cupcake holder and of course the Minion themed wrappers. Mason’s mom (Tamira) did a fantastic job decorating the cupcakes to look like minions with the help of yellow frosting, black, white and gray. But she didn’t stop there, she even made this cake. Isn’t she talented??
Next up came the decorations, when you throw a party I’ve learned the hard way that less is usually more. But of course we bought several anyway. The Happy Birthday Banner dressed up the gift table and the door poster covered most of the “fireplace” and the Mylar balloons made it perfect for a backdrop to the gift table. On the bottom right you can see Mason enjoying one of his new presents, while mom and dad look on.
Centerpieces were as easy as 1-2-3..I had some yellow and black bubbles leftover from Liz’s Graduation Party so we used those and Minion themed party hats for centerpieces. The kids all loved blowing bubbles and having something to do while the adults visited or Mason opened presents. There were even a few adults sporting the minion hats, but I failed to snap a picture of that.
Then, came the snacks and party essentials, which turned out adorable as well. Because there were a few diabetics in attendance she put out some fruit as well as vegetables and used the Minion theme on plates and napkins. It turned out to the be an adorable second birthday party for Mason and all of the guests had a wonderful time. What is your favorite Minion idea that we featured?
