I am excited to share all about the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Playdate we hosted last week. I was thrilled to learn we’d been selected by Walt Disney World to host a playdate party as a part of their #NowMoreThanEver campaign.
Disney sent us a large box of the goodies needed to host the event and we started planning straight away. Our hostess box included a Mickey Mouse pinata and Mickey-themed cups, plates, and tablecloths. After seeing the contents of our hostess box, I decided that the theme for our playdate party would be Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Playdate: Decorations
I had the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song and bright colors in mind when planning our playdate. I started to plan the decorations by first narrowing down the colors. Next, I decided to turn one wall into a fringe backdrop (tutorial coming soon). Additionally, I added two organic balloon columns. One, around the fringe backdrop, and the other over the dessert table. Finally, to really pull off the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme, I made large props of some of the Clubhouse characters.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Playdate: Fun / Entertainment
My plan was to make our home a fun “clubhouse” where little ones would be free to play, run, and have fun for the duration of the playdate. For starters, we moved the furniture from our formal living area to create a more open space for the kids to play. Next, we set up a ball pit using an inflatable pool and small plastic balls. I set out Magformers, learning gears, and building blocks on a table for the kids to build at their leisure. Children who wanted to jump around spent some time in our trampoline.
At another table, I set out Mickey-themed coloring books (found at the dollar tree) and colored pencils. We received a Pin the Nose on Mickey game in our hostess kit and the kids enjoyed it.
Michael Angelos provided us with coupons for their frozen lasagna meals. I put out hotdogs, chips, fruit, and cookies for guests to enjoy. Popped Passion provided one of their candy-filled popcorn cakes. The children also enjoyed ice pops and candy from the pinata. For Drinks, we had plenty of water and fresh-made strawberry lemonade.
Jakks Toys sent us a large Disney Princess Doll and one Disney Princess costume. I gave the items away to guests at the playdate. We also received a Mickey pillow pet from Pillow Pets Disney that my daughter got to keep for being such a gracious mini hostess.
Overall the playdate was a joy to plan and experience. Thanks to Disney for having us be a part.
