My son Gabriel recently celebrated his 4th birthday with a #DisneySide themed birthday party. We love all things Disney, and we were so excited when we chosen to host a DisneySide at home celebration through MomSelect.
Just like all great parties we started with #DisneySide invitations. I played around in Photoshop Elements with digital papers and cutouts until I found a layout that I liked. The red and white chevron, combined with the black and yellow added to our Mickey Mouse themed event.
Included in our #DisneySide party kit was some HP photo paper which was great for printing the invitations that I decided to hand deliver.
|I used the Mickey shaped cookie cutters to cut fondant and just applied them to the side of my chocolate layer cake.|
|His cake was definitely made with lots of love|
|He received a birthday “crown” at preschool that he loved, so I decided to #DisneySide it with ears.|
|Basic black gift bags that I created using construction paper cut Mickey ears, red pants, and white buttons. I added ears to all of the plain paper party hats. They made for a festive touch.|
|Mickey napkins are available in the party section of your local Walmart|
|I picked up the red and white paper straws at Hobby Lobby|
|My son loved the Ocean Spray Craisins included in our #DisneySide kit|
|I created a #DisneySide paper banner to hang on the food table. We had a mixture of homemade and premade food items. I didn’t want to spent so much time on food that I couldn’t enjoy the fun.|
I saw a few ideas on Pinterest for #DisneySide photo booth props. I visited the craft section at Hobby Lobby and created this fun “polaroid” frame. I think it took maybe an hour total, but it was tons of fun for guests.
I used Photoshop Elements to create this cool chalkboard printable to display at the party.
I tried not to go over the top, I wanted it to be a fun party for family and friend. You can get lost finding ideas over on Pinterest, so I chose a few of my favorites. I have a board with lots of creative ideas to help show your #DisneySide if you want to check them out here. Birthday parties aren’t the only reason to show your #DisneySide, you can celebrate your #DisneySide every day.

I hope our #DisneySide is apparent in this post, and maybe you found a little Pinspiration!
