We know, school is starting, carpools and routines have to be organized and planned out, and having to plan a party is just one more thing you've got on your plate.

If you've got a child, whether they're three or 13, chances are there is a Disney movie or character that they are in love with! Or perhaps you've got a child that you've introduced your love of the classic animated movies to. Now that the time has come to plan a party, you're just looking for a little help. Let's be honest, it would be AMAZING if you could have your kids or teenager help out right? Whether they're in the kitchen, blowing up balloons, setting out plates, or hanging decorations, we've got all kinds of ideas to help make your party planning easier and a way you can get them in the kitchen at the same time!

To really make your party pop, focus on quirkily named Disney foods to set out as a buffet (don't worry, we've got you covered with party menu ideas!), come up with a fun color scheme, and use colorful decorations for your space!

-Keep the decor focused on a movie or theme-


Red, yellow, and black & white polka dots or red, pinks, and white polka dots with black mouse ear accents are a fun way to keep the decor playful. Do this with balloons, plates, napkins, cups, and even goodie bags! There are all kinds of printables for fun signs to put out near your food like these ones for free, and many more you can purchase. We love the idea of creating your own Mickey or Minnie ears for guests to wear during the party, too! Have fun with it and get creative with mouse shapes!

for a movie themed party:

Try picking popular movie themes like Moana, Frozen, Cars, and "new" live action movies that have been remade like Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast. Bright colors, paper flowers and faux palms are a fun way to make your party feel like your guests are along the ocean shore for a Moana theme. For Frozen, tons of sparkle, metallics and shades of blue, white and purples are a fun way to help guests "get frozen", along with some confetti or fake snow on table tops for older kid's parties! Colors and texture are a must, and just a quick search for Disney movie-themed parties can give you hundreds of ideas for inspiration no matter which movie you choose.

-everyone's hungry-

Cut the food into fun shapes, like Mickey Mouse Sandwiches, using cookie cutters easily found online or in stores, use playful wording on place cards, and create dishes with a twist that fit your theme. Diggity Dogs (Hot dogs in a croissant blanket), cupcakes, candy, pretzels, a decorated cake, and of course drinks are all great ideas that you can use that will really show off your creativity! Make sure to include some kind of savory food to make both the adults AND the kids happy along with snacky foods like popcorn, and a sweet treat that will be enjoyed by everyone.

how to get started?

If after all this you're wondering who will help you in the kitchen making the food while decorations go up, we want you to know- we've got you covered.
