If you’re the proud parent of a set of boy and girl twins and are struggling to think of a shared birthday party theme then Mickey and Minnie Mouse is a perfect joint theme to suit a boy and a girl.
Send out invitations a month or so before. A selection of Minnie and Mickey invitations are perfect for the job! Ask the girls to come in their prettiest party dresses and the boys might like to wear red trousers and a white t-shirt! When they arrive you can hand out Mickey or Minnie ears to complete their outfits. Make sure you get a picture of your twins dressed up together!
Choose some decorations featuring Mickey and Minnie – we love this Minnie bunting and Mickey hanging swirl decorations. Add some more decorations in coordinating colours – pink pom poms for Minnie and red polka balloons for Mickey. If you want to go all out then the partygoers will love having their picture taken with Mickey and Minnie cutouts!
Mickey and Minnie inspired games will go down a treat with your twins and their friends, a Mickey pull pinata is a definite crowd pleaser and little girls will love playing Minnie Hoopla. Have some prizes on hand for the winners!
When it’s time for tea, lay out alternating places with Mickey and Minnie tableware – a party kit contains everything you need. If you have a lot of guests, add in some polka tableware for variety. Sprinkle confetti on the table and have plenty of fun straws to sip drinks through. If you can source a mouse shaped cookie cutter then make mouse shaped sandwiches and cookies as well as some favourites like cheese & pineapple on sticks and iced jems. Depending on how many mouths you have to feed you may want the twins to have a birthday cake to share or one each. If they have one each why not add some more polka to the party – pink for the girl and yellow for the boy; they will love seeing their names on these personalised cakes.
When it’s time to go home you could prepare some party bags for your twins’ pals, or make things super easy by selecting a Minnie or Mickey filled bag which comes with everything you need! Alternatively they will love a helium balloon to take home, you can easily fill them yourself by purchasing a canister.
