1. Welcome Sign
First, you need to welcome your guests to your party, and what better way to greet the little ones than Minnie Mouse welcome sign?
Although these signs are available on Amazon or Esty, you can make your own at home for much cheaper. Making something by hand at home opens doors for customization and personalization.
For our homemade welcome sign, you need a large sheet of black chart paper, scissors, one big and one small circular object (preferably plates), some glue, white paper, colorful pens, and pink paper. Your round plates must preferably be around 5 inches in diameter for the big ones and 3 inches for the smaller ones.
When you have collected all the supplies, start by tracing the large circle followed by the smaller circles on the black paper. Cut out the tracing, the larger piece will make the face of Minnie, and the smaller ones will make the ears. Use the pink chart paper to make the bow tie. One can go freehand or use a template from the internet. Stick everything in place to look like the image above.
In the white paper, you can write any creative welcome notes for children or go with just Welcome To The Birthday Party. Stick the sign above and the welcome sign underneath on your front door to welcome your guests.
2. Minnie Guide Sign
It is to guide your little guests to the birthday girl. It is a good idea to make cute Minnie Mouse signs to help the little ones find their way.
You can always download the printable form of the sign from Etsy or make your sign from scratch. If you wish to make the sign, it requires some easy supplies. You will need a white sheet of paper, some colored pens, and a ruler.
To make the sign, start by making a border around your white sheet of paper and leave about an inch of margin on all four sides. You can draw lines outside of the perimeter, and they can either be straight or not straight.
Once the outer part is decorated, it is time for you to draw a Disney Mouse's hand pointing toward the party. You can either use traceable from the web or go free hands. Feel free to show your creativity while writing the directions. The final sign might look like the one from the picture above.
3. Minnie Mouse Happy Birthday Banner
A birthday is incomplete without a happy birthday banner. Our themed birthday will get a Minnie Mouse banner.
You can download a pre-made image and print out the cut-and-paste pictures from Pinterest or break a sweat and make the banner yourself. If you wish to go the latter way, about 13 sheets of black paper, 13 sheets of white paper, a big sheet of pink paper, one small and one a bit larger plate, scissors, fishing line, and glue. You will also need colorful pens.
Start by cutting out 13 larger using the larger props and 26 smaller circles using the smaller plates. Each big circular piece of paper will make Minnie's face, and two smaller pieces will make her ears. Cut out her pink bow as well. Assemble the pieces of paper to form Minnie's face and complete it with a bow.
Now stick the white paper in the middle of her face and write each letter of the phrase happy birthday one by one. Assemble all the alphabet and stick it in the fishing line to be hung by the wall or as a drop-down from the ceiling. Your complete banner might look like one from the image above.
4. Birthday Party Backdrop
Nobody likes the lame old wall as the background of the dope celebration, and you ought to do something about it.
Making a simple, easy, and beautiful-looking backdrop for your kid's birthday party is just a few supplies and minutes away. You can spend some bucks to get a ready-made set or pick up a few easy supplies from your local supermarket to build yourself. If you want to go with the latter option, here is what you need.
You will need some polka-red cloth with white dots, the classic Minnie style, some big pom-poms, and the silhouette we made earlier. You can make the Silhouettes by following the Welcome Sign instructions.
When you have all the materials, start by placing the cloth in the background. You may use a hammer and nail or strong glue to fix it. Stick the silhouette in the big dotted polka fabric and hang the big pom-poms by the ceiling in front of the decoration. You might be looking for something like the picture above.
5. Minnie Mouse Balloon Column
The Minnie Mouse balloon column is not something you want to exclude from the birthday party.
However, unlike previously mentioned decorative items, the balloon columns must be purchased from online shopping or your local supermarket. We will have fun assembling them as they come deflated.
Erecting the balloon column is easy (Get those motorized pumps for added convenience). You need to inflate all the balloons in the packet and arrange them according to the instructions. Your final product should resemble the above-given picture.

Now, it's time to dry and shake off the excess nonpareils before you stick the lollipop stick in the bottom using the same candy melts as glue. Finish off the delicious treat by making a bow out of two jumbo heart sprinkles. Be sure to make a few extra as your little ones will definitely come back for their seconds and thirds.

Minnie Mouse Party Favors Ideas
Finding the perfect party favors to go with your Minnie Mouse-themed celebration is challenging.
Here are some ideas that can inspire you.
Kids' party favors that aren't junk are hard to come by, but these five ideas will blow your mind off.
1. Kids Books
A wise thing to give a child is a book. It may be a collection of jokes or some information on wildlife.
Sending a kid home with a good collection of one-liners or elaborate humor will crack them open. The fun part of giving a book is the kids can always come back for some humorous dose.
If the joke is not up to par, the kids can get creative in making their punchlines.
Another wise choice can be kids' books on animals and wildlife. They will gain valuable lessons and learn more about those animals from the books.
Giving an instrument of life-long knowledge rather than a moment of fun is always a better choice. You can browse a variety of kids' books on Amazon.
2. Hair Bands
Another party favor on our list might not be for everyone, but it is still a brilliant idea.
You can buy hair bands or ears from Amazon. The hair bands will serve well to all the little girls at the party, but they might not be suitable for the boys.
These Minnie Mouse ears will not just light up your child's mood, but you can also sneak up and wear it yourself. You can always get a matching hair band with your daughter while going out on a family vacation or tour.
If your child loves taking notes of his daily activities, then Minnie Mouse notebooks might be the perfect thing to do.
Ditch the idea of giving some plastic toys that would barely last for a day inside the goodie bag and provide something useful and lasting. A themed birthday party can go well with a notebook.
Your kids and their friends can all have a similar notebook to take notes for their school field trip or park gathering. Their markings from an insect encounter will be safe and beautiful in these notebooks. Who knows who could write down the next big thing for the world in their notebook? They are available on Amazon.
4. Pastel Highlighters
Handing out a few pastel highlighters in a goodie bag as birthday party favors can be a brilliant idea.
Although pastel highlighters are not particulars related to Minnie-themed party ideas, they still are great gifts to go inside goodie bags. You can always put them inside a themed goodie bag to make the highlighters more relevant.
Pairing the Minnie notebooks with pastel highlighters makes an excellent combination for goodie bags. All the kids at the birthday party will love the idea.
5. Ice-Cream Giftcards
Ice cream gift cards will always work as last-minute party favors.
Imagine the happiness on the kids' faces when they realize they are up for a treat while returning home. Hand out the gift cards from your local ice cream place to the kids while they are leaving and ask their parents to take them for a treat on their way home.
You can also do gift cards for Amazon or Target, but a sweet delicious ice cream might be more than enough to bring a smile to everyone's face.

Gathering up supplies will not take much time or money. You will need basic materials like red fabric with white polka dots, some white ribbons, black stockings to wear underneath, and matching shoes.
I am no expert in sewing, but I believe you start with making the bodice and skirt part separately. You might want to use hooks or zippers on the back side of the dress for easy wearing.
Then attach the completed bodice and skirt together to make a dress and decorate the bottom portion of the skirt by adding a white ribbon all around. Now throw some white ribbon around the waist to make a belt. You can make cute bows for the shoes as well. You are aiming for something like as shown in the image above.

Are you planning an outdoor birthday event? Minnie Mouse baseball caps might be the perfect thing for all the attendees.
You get a wide variety of choices on Amazon for kids' Minnie Mouse baseball caps for under $15. Most of them will work great for the upcoming event.
However, you can make your own caps by gathering the supplies. You will save some dollars for making your own product. You can purchase a pack of 12 red caps from Amazon and gather some polka dot bows, glue, black ears, and white ribbon. Cut the white ribbons into circular dots to stick on the plain red caps.
