Despicable Me Minion Party

Pin It



As usual, I tried to fit the theme while keeping costs low. Here are some photos of the food and decorations for your viewing pleasure. I designed the food labels myself in PowerPoint and then printed them on photo paper. Always a cute and fun touch, I think.




Despicable Me Party - El Macho's Salsa

Despicable Me Party - Agnes' Caterpillars (Cheese Puffs and Carrots)

Despicable Me Party - Shrunken Moons (Powdered Donut Holes)

Despicable Me Party - Fluffy Unicorn Fur (cotton candy)

Despicable Me Party - Cookie Robots and Coco-nutties

And of course, the cake. I was inspired by a cake I found HERE and modified it slightly for my skill-level. First I cut a homemade sheet cake to form. Next I colored some vanilla frosting yellow and blue and used cherry-flavored black licorice for some fun details. The buttons and eyeball were upside-down Hershey kisses. And the large part of the eye was a frosting covered peppermint patty. Finally, I used silver sprinkles along with some black tube frosting for the goggles. I have to say, I think it came out pretty good if I do say so myself! :)


Despicable Me Party - DIY Minion Cake


I bought plain yellow and purple balloons and decorated them with some free printables I found online (can't remember where).

The table was decorated as a giant minion. I used a blue and a yellow plastic table cloth layered over each other for the body and pants. Black poster board made the goggles along with a piece of aluminum foil, tissue paper and construction paper. So easy but such a fun detail!

Since we decided to do a viewing of Despciable Me 2 on BluRay, we only had one organized activity. A "Pin the Goggles on the Minion" game. I bought a piece of yellow poster board and free-handed a minion on it with a black marker. I added some scrapbooking paper for the overalls. And then used a free goggle printable I found HERE for... well... the goggles. :)
