A Mickey Mouse Party at Home

A Mickey Mouse Party at Home

No matter what birthday, anniversary or celebration is on the way, there is always room for Mickey! So, we wanted to pull together a Mickey themed birthday party filled with a bunch of things to celebrate. Filled with Mickey Mouse party ideas, snacks, or decor inspiration, we decided to share a few ideas of our own.

For this party we chose the colors of Mickey Mouse himself; red and gold and included things like cupcakes, party banners, and self decorated popcorn buckets. Here is everything we pulled together, pretty easily, to make a Mickey Mouse Party at home. This post includes affiliate links. For more info see this page .

Mickey Mouse Party Recipe Ideas

We realize everyone may not have the time or money to create some of these mind-blowing creations for a Mickey-themed birthday party. So we decided to keep it simple. There are a few things you’ll want on hand that can really make party planning easier. A few things we always have to make anything more “Mickey”. A Mickey Hole Punch, and Mickey Cookie Cutter can help make any party Disney themed!

Mickey Mouse Pizza Pockets

For the savory food, we made Mickey shaped pizza pockets. These are so simple and are hard to mess up. To make these, just buy refrigerated pie crust. Unroll it, and use your Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut out mini pizzas(two for each pizza pocket). Assemble the pizza using any toppings you’d like, then top with the second cut out, seal with a fork and cook about 15 mins until brown. Easy and delicious!

Mickey Mouse Cupcakes

Have a favorite cupcake recipe? You can make it Mickey! To add some sweetness to the mix, we chose to represent all eras of Mickey Mouse with 3 different cupcakes, silver, red and gold. Again, we tried to keep this simple. To make gray frosting, we added crushed Oreos into white buttercream to cupcakes in silver liners. For the red, we simply topped the frosting with red sprinkles in red liners. And for gold, we were happy to find some awesome edible gold glitter stars and gold color mist from Wilton(as mentioned earlier) and used gold liners.  Add in your Mickey “ears” with the mini Oreos and Voila! you have Mickey cupcakes.

  • Mini Oreos- need to add ears to something? Mini Oreos do the trick. Or if its a bigger something, regular Oreos work too! 
  • Gold Metallic Cupcake liners – we were actually lucky enough to find a multi pack that had red and silver as well and we found those surprisingly at Marshall’s! Feel free to pick and choose as you see fit and use these ideas as inspiration!
  • Wilton Gold Color Mist – use this to add some shimmer to cupcakes, cookies and more! We linked it to Amazon so you can see the product, but its available at JoAnn Fabrics for about $4 for one can.
  • Wilton Edible Glitter Gold Stars – we added these to our 90th version of the classic Mickey cupcake(more on that later)

Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats

We had to have Rice Krispy treats at the Party since they’re one of our favorite treats to get at the Parks. These are another treat you’ll want to use your Mickey Mouse cookie cutter on. Cut out the Mickeys and decorate! We stuck to white chocolate, topped with red sparkles and yellow M&Ms. But these are another treat that you can dress up any way you’d like! In fact, you can even add more variety with different kinds of cereal too. Reese’s Puff Marshmallow Treats, or Fruity Pebbles Marshmallows treats are just as yummy. Simply substitute the cereal in any krispie treat recipe. 

Mickey Mouse Cake Pops

If you saw our Spring Mickey Treat post then you know how easy it is to make Cake Pops. Some frosting, oreos, and mini marshmallows, and you can have Mickey Cake Pops in no time. So, if you’re looking for another sweet treat, you can add them to this party treat lineup too!

Mickey Mouse Popcorn

No party is complete without some delicious popcorn! This popcorn mix was easy and fun and incorporated all of the colors of our favorite mouse. By adding red, yellow, black and brown M&M’s, this treat was a subtle nod to the Birthday Mouse without breaking the bank or taking too much time to assemble.

Mickey Mouse Punch 

To round out the celebration, we had to add a yummy drink! We stuck with non-alcoholic drinks for this, but actually took inspiration from this tutorial that is alcoholic. And substituted Pineapple Juice instead of OJ and cut out the champagne for our party, but feel free to follow the original recipe…..I mean really, who can say no to a mimosa?! We topped ours with orange slices for Mouse ears and added a super cute paper straw that we topped with Mickey confetti.

Mickey Mouse Party Decoration Ideas

We tried to keep the color scheme for Mickey’s Birthday Party simple and classic, like the mouse himself! Here are some supplies you can grab to help you create these easy Mickey Mouse crafts. 

  • Mickey Hole Punch -for confetti, to add to paper straws, etc
  • Gold Inflatable Numbers – we actually got these in the Target dollar aisle, but you can find them on Amazon for fairly cheap as well. 
  • Gold Glitter Cardstock – another item we got from JoAnn’s and you can buy it in single sheets if you only need a little bit
  • Black and Red Glitter Cardstock – keep the classic colors on hand to add a little bit of Mickey Magic anytime!

We stuck with black, red, and gold, and of course, had to add shades of silver and gray to pay homage to Mickey in the black and white short films from 1928.

Mickey Happy Birthday Banner

To create the Happy Birthday banner, we used black cardstock, gold vinyl, and some yarn to hang it up. Super easy and we were thrilled with how it turned out! We used our Cricut to cut it all out, so it was a fun and easy little project. We also used the gold number balloons mentioned earlier as well as larger red number balloons to really elevate the décor.  You could also add red and black crepe paper, regular balloons or red, gold or black hanging fans . The best part is you can be as simple or as extravagant as you want!

Mickey Paper Straws

For the Mickey Mouse Paper Straws we got some red and gold glitter cardstock and used the Mickey Hole Punch to create little Mickeys. Simply use double sided tape to stick these to the paper straws. Sticking with classic Mickey, we chose black and white striped straws for this craft. And don’t forget to use any left over Mickey Mouse cutouts as decorations to sprinkle across the table. 

Mickey Mouse Popcorn Bucket

Using the same Mickey Mouse cutouts you made with the hole punch, you can glue the Mickey heads to blank popcorn buckets, to hand out to guests or decorate a table. You can grab packs of popcorn buckets on amazon.com. And since some of them come in bulk packages you can buy more for a cheaper cost and then use your extras for other parties too! We love Sally’s Popcorn in our Nightmare Before Christmas Movie Night Post, and having the extra popcorn buckets just gives you a great excuse to make more spectacular popcorn. Yum!
