Despicable Me Party

I’m finally getting this party up! My kids love the new Despicable me movie so when I asked my son what kind of party he wanted he yelled “MINION!” The week before the party I hurt my back pretty badly but thanks to family and friend I got it done! Here it goes!

This party was hard because there is not a lot out there for a despicable me party. Our local stores hadn’t gotten the party supply yet so I had to find images on the internet.

I loved the way this dessert table turned out. Paper clouds and streamers for the backdrop was a cheap way give color to the dessert table. Also it pulled the focus to the dessert table.

I’m so glad minions are so easy to make! I made them from foam sheets from the dollar store. The balloons are chevron paper for 39 cents. The eyes I got from a website http://www.tipjunkie.com/all-crafts/activity/games/despicable-me-birthday-party/.

Water is easy to have at a party but you’ve got to make it better looking. I made the labels with images from google.

I got these cute chevron print bags from pebblesinmypocket.com. I bought a pack for stickers from partyland and added orange ribbon.

I am so grateful to my neighbor so helping me this day! She made these cupcakes and cookies! The cupcake idea came from pinterest! http://ajnrileysmommy.blogspot.com/2013/06/awesome-despicable-me-birthday-party.html is where I saw the idea. This party was amazing. I used the candy eyes from the grocery store and it saved a ton of time!

I love these cookies! I bought the sugar cookies and frosting. Just food coloring and an awesome neighbor and you get perfect cookies.

Here again my back was killing me and I couldn’t bake too much. So I had to improvise! I got this 12 inch white cake for $10 and added all the color dots. Easy! The Minion on top is from Mcdonalds!

I love these flags. I got them from a local paper store for 1.50.

I bought the straws which all the kids loved and added color to the table for 3 dollars at Pebblesinmypocket.com. The ribbon was left over in my closet.

This is for all those Despicable Me 2 lovers! Purple jello and coolwhip for a crazy minion jello dessert.

The birthday boy loved his party! My sister also helped me a ton with the garage! All the purple splats are from the “jelly shooter” It was a fun way to decorate the garage. Thanks for everyone who helped! It was fun! Happy birthday baby boy!

Spooky Halloween dinner!

Halloween is such a fun holiday but it can get expensive I found all the decor at the dollar store and at a second hand(or donation)store called DI.

The candle holder is a wonderful haunted piece that if you look you can find at Goodwill or Salvation Army.

All of these creepy cups are from the dollar tree. I got all of my paper products there.

Mummy dogs are easy and great priced! Just add mustard or ketchup for eyes.

The Main course was ribs! Tomato for a heart. You can roast it to make it look more real.

Veggies are a must so why not make it cute! You can do this with any veggies you like.

Deviled eggs are my husbands favorite! Other than the name they are prefect for Halloween. Just put an olive in the middle and make it an eye ball.

The table was so fun but not too scary for all the kids. Skulls were from the dollar store. Spider webs are the cheapest easiest way to make something look like halloween! The candelabra is from a second hand store!

The punch was by far my favorite! I put water with food coloring in a rubber glove and froze it. It was great! The punch was sprite and rainbow ice cream. It looks creepy so I loved it!

These bugs are just hohos and pretzels. Easy!

Frankenstein pudding cups were for the kids. Plastic cups, pistachio pudding, Oreo cookies, and a sharpie is all it takes to make these cute treats!
For a party for 15 people it cost be $52 dollars which included; mummy dogs, punch, puddling cups, candy, beef ribs, meatball monsters, mini pizzas, spider rolls, cupcakes, and veg tray. And the best part was I was using a black plastic table cloth (97 cents at walmart) and after we were done eating we moved the plates and carved pumpkins which was a super easy clean up!
Enjoy!
