From the time I dreamed of being Cinderella as a little girl until now, I have loved Disney. My family shares in that love which is why we were so excited to be chosen to host a DisneySide @Home Celebration recently. As a fun twist, the theme chosen for us was Disney Villains. We had the chance to think outside the box and focus on the not-so-celebrated Disney characters.
We received a box filled with all kinds of fantastic goodies for our party.
I had so much fun coming up with ideas for the food. We received a Duff Tie Dye Cake Mix in our box. I decided to make cupcakes instead of a cake because I find them easier to deal with. We topped them with vanilla frosting, sprinkles and Disney Villain cupcake toppers I printed from the Disney Family website.
In addition to the cupcakes we had Queen of Heart’s Cookies, Captain Hook’s Pirates Booty and Gold Dabloons, The Evil Queen’s Poison Apples, and Maleficent’s Spinning Wheels(Bagel Bites).
For drinks we had Ursula’s Poor Unfortunate Souls Punch. I cut up gummy worms and froze them in ice cubes to represent the poor unfortunate souls.
I wrapped Mickey Mouse duct tape around water bottles for those who preferred water over punch and we had a coffee and tea station featuring Twinings Tea.
We enjoyed fun activities that included a Disney Word Search, Disney Trivia, and a Disney Quote and Attraction Match-Up. The Disney Bingo game was a big hit. In fact, it was decided that we had to make it more Disney so instead of calling out “Bingo” winners would shout “Pluto.” We also enjoyed Maleficent inspired manicures. I’ve never used purple and black nail polish before but I have to admit I liked it, especially the purple. The teen and tweens really seemed to like it too.
For décor, I cut out the banner kit I received and hung it with red ribbon. I also put out some pictures from our most recent trip to Disney World. I used the Mickey Face I received on the front door to welcome guests since I felt our guests would be a little too old for pin the smile on Mickey. I used the Maleficent inspired decorations included in the kit I received along with a Disney Villain printable I found online to round out the décor.
I used a free printable shared by a fellow DisneySide party host on my goodie bags. The guests went home with bags filled with Disney luggage tags, HP CMYK(Create Memories You Keep) Packs, Cinderella movie buttons, Beyond Meat coupons, Twinings Tea, and chocolate(of course!).
We ended our time with some photo booth fun. I made a Queen of Hearts inspired banner out of playing cards to hang on the backdrop. We had Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, and Mad Hatter inspired props along with princess crowns, moustaches, glasses, lips, and bow tie props to choose from. The girls ended up combining multiple props for some fun pictures.
Perhaps the best part of our celebration was the fact that our guests were heading to Disney World just a few days later. We spent much of our party discussing their plans for their trip and talking about some of our favorite rides and attractions at Disney. It was so fun to share our DisneySide with friends.
