Just in time for the Minions movie – my little bees are celebrating their birthdays together this month with one Minion celebration! It was super easy to find Minions themed everything- as the movie is advertising out the wazoo…
We had their birthday party at a movie theater so that the kids could watch the movie together.
Here are a couple of things I did to prepare- as there was not much else required for entertaining and they were eating in a dimly lit movie theater.
For drinks- I used these free Minion water bottle labels and I bought different flavors of Motts juices that had their own Minions labels.
I also bought quite a few of the paper Minion eye masks and used them to decorate everything! From yellow polka dot straw holders, to yellow paper plates and lanterns to plastic yellow construction hats (everyone was a Minion!).
I also bought Minion tote bags from the Target $1 section which I filled with Minion kites (again from Target $3.99) along with Minion water bottles (Target $1).
We made a Minion 3-D puzzle and it was our centerpiece (along with the Happy Meal Minion toys):
Pizza was served at the movie theater and for dessert we had Minion cupcakes (the fondant toppers were made by Momma Zinga and Minion cookies- which were sold locally.
We had a family party afterwards at the house- and the fun Minion photo props entertained the gang along with a Minion pinata.
I asked our local ice cream store Carvel to make an ice cream cake with yellow icing. I made the Minion eyes with fondant.
And their adorable Minion pillow case dresses were made by CookieBellaCreations on Etsy.
