Despicable Me Birthday Party

This incredible Despicable Me 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).

  1. First of all, wow, I am impressed!
    Secondly, I am having a minion themed birthday party for my 4 year old and was desperate trying to find a fun game for everyone. I LOVE the Unicorn Dart game! But tell me, HOW did you make that UFO????? I’m assuming it’s cardboard? Did you glue white paper on it and then color it in? I would love mine to turn out as cute as yours!
    OH, and btw, the party’s in 2 weeks. No rush! 😉



    1. Jen- I believe she just cut the twinkies in half and used a smartie for the eye and piped black icing for the details. Thanks for coming by and checking out the fun ideas – good luck planning your own Despicable Me party!

    1. Keri-
      The foam glasses and foam stickers they decorated them with were purchased at the store. The kids decorated their own pair.
