Disney Side At Home Celebration
I was recently selected to participate in the Disney Side at Home Celebration group, and I can honestly say I enjoyed hosting my party as much as I have enjoyed looking at all the other celebrations! I knew I wanted to have a retro vibe to the party, reminiscent of my very first trip to Disney as a toddler!
I printed retro looking Disney posters from the internet. (If I could have found a place to buy them, I would have) I was cringing as I did it, because I know it’s not the best way to do it, but in the end, I love the way the backdrop looked!
I chose to serve Main Street Style food for our party, and it was a hit! Hot dogs from the vintage style hot dog ferris wheel, mini corn dog nuggets and fries (because I remember the first time I had corn dog nuggets was at Disney from Casey’s Corner) in mini bread boxes I made using my Sizzix and Cricut, cotton candy cones, popcorn, Duff Tie Dye cupcakes, cookies, chocolate pretzel rods, popcorn, and Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats. Funny story about the Rice Krispie Treats, I have never successfully made them before this week, so ridiculous, right?! They turned out perfect, but I wanted to add a little more Mickey Mouse to them, so I dipped them in melted red chocolate wafers and added yellow M&M buttons. We also made pineapple shakes, to mimic the famous Dole Whips, and add some fruit to the mix 😉
Our Duff Tie Dye cupcakes were so fun to make! And they were delicious. The boys and I frosted them with buttercream, but to hide the not so pro job we did, we used the most awesome Mickey Mouse “poster” fondant from LNCreations! The fabulous cookies and pretzel rods were from LauraMegs Sweets. The guests devoured them!
I decided to keep the table decor simple, with just a black table cloth and a red runner. I sprinkled some extra Mickey Mouse silhouettes I cut out with my Cricut on the red runner too! I hung the Mickey Mouse face I got in my box on the front of the table until we played pinned the mouth on Mickey. I also grabbed few of the kids’ stuffed characters to put on the table. The food was served in boxes and bags I made with my Sizzix and embellished with the Mickey Mouse Silhouettes I made with my Cricut. (I will share more on the DIY for those tomorrow)
Our guests took home their Disney treats and favors in fun bags from Subway that were PERFECT for our party! The bags included a puzzle already, and we just added a few Disney trinkets and treats to them.
We had a fabulous celebration, but it would not have been nearly as much fun with out the help of my fabulous vendors and the Disney Side @Home Celebrations team.
