My #DisneySide @Home Celebration Party

I received free products to facilitate my party from Disney Parks and MomSelect. My thoughts are mine and my family's own opinion and have not been altered by anyone else. I did not receive any other compensation for doing this post.

We had our very first #DisneySide @Home Celebration Party on February 15th, 2014. We planned and prepped and finally it was the day. We put up the decorations and prepared the food. Then we partied! We had so much fun showing our #DisneySide!

#DisneySide Costume Party
We had a #DisneySide Themed costume party. We had some really adorable Disney Princesses show up. We love playing dressup!

Teela playing the Pin The Bow on Minnie Mouse Game
The first game we played was a Pin The Bow on Minnie Mouse Game. I made this from a piece of cardboard and paint I had lying around the house. I just traced a large bowl for the face and the top of a 40 oz soda cup for the ears. Then I made the detachable bow freehand, painted it red, let the red dry, then painted the polka-dots with the opposite end of the small paintbrush I was using.

This game was a guest favorite. The kids wanted to play to get their turn at pinning the bow on Minnie Mouse over and over again. I am so glad they liked it so much.

#DisneySide Bingo: Teela and Delbin
Then we played #DisneySide Bingo. I had the younger kids pair up with an older kid so that they could help them with the reading and finding of the correct pictures. Everybody won a prize to take home.

#DisneySide @Home Celebration Party Food
We had some very yummy party food and drinks that I made for the celebration. We had: Hot Diggity Dogs, Mickey Mouse Shaped Finger Sandwiches,  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Muffins, red Jello, and Kiwi Strawberry Soda. It was all very yummy.

I did make the mistake of not cutting the water in half for the jello so it didn't set up enough for cutting it out into shapes like I wanted. I wanted to make Jello Jigglers in the Mickey Mouse cookie cutter shapes. I will know next time to cut the water in half so it won't be as watery.

At the end I handed out the last of the take home prizes to the guests and also told the parents about the HP Photo Card Packs and TwoSmiles, a HP website where you can print-at-home personalized greeting cards with gift cards in them. We also talked about Disney Parks and why we love them so much!

The #DisneySide @Home Celebration Party turned out to be a hit! Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Thank you Disney Parks for giving me the opportunity to do this!
