This incredible Despicable Me themed birthday party was submitted by Rochelle Wilde. She is a stay at home mother of 5 (with one more on the way) and lives in Ohio. If you looked in the dictionary under Super-Mom, you’d see her photo. She cooks, bakes, sews and crafts all while she raises completely adorable children. Her creativity and cake decorating skills are ridiculous.
Here are the minion-ized invites:
Okay, there are actually two really big reasons why I love these cupcakes. First, they use Twinkies, which I can down an entire box of. Second, they are so darling!!
She referenced a tutorial found here on how to make the minions. But really, I know if I tried to do that they would end up looking like a lump of rainbow play dough that my 2 year old plays with. Well done! Her son specifically requested that the minions be “eating” the cake.
I love the simple, but well thought decorations.
As guests arrived they each got to decorate their own pair of minion glasses.
Then it was on to playing Gru Says.
That was followed by Finding the Moon and the Fluffy Unicorn dart game
Each child was sent home with their own perfect package of Coconutties (Graham crackers – since her son is named Graham).
If you’re planning the party for a younger crowd you could also have them color a Despicable Me coloring page – find some free printable ones here.
