Being a member of the Mickey Mom’s Club, I was lucky enough to host one of their Red Box parties in 2010. As soon as I knew I had been chosen to host this event, I waited every day for Fed Ex to get here with that yummy box of goodies. I think the Fed Ex delivery man thought I was going to mug him the day it finally came! I grabbed the box and couldn’t get in the house fast enough to open it.
As I dug through the box I found some red Mickey Head balloons, brightly colored confetti, Disney Parks paper plates and napkins to decorate with. There were also some small Disney totes, magnet boards, magnets and Mickey straws to fill them with. There were games for the kids and a trivia game for everyone. We added our own trivia questions and split the guests up in to teams, guys against the girls. I had gone out in the weeks before, as I had decided to do my party in a luau theme, and bought Disney and luau themed pencils, coconut mugs, hurricane glasses and toys to give out as prizes. The girls came out victorious!
My favorite item to give to the lucky attendees was a limited edition, signed print of the Disney Princesses welcoming Princess Tiana to the royal family. I think that was a very special gift for Disney to put in that box and I truly appreciate mine.
Mickey Mom’s Club also sent me this great little tote as a special gift for hosting the Red Box Party. I love it!! Thank You MMC!
Decorating for this party was almost as fun as hosting it. You see, we LOVE to have luau’s. We had our first one about 5 year ago to celebrate our daughter turning 13 and my husband turning 50. We enjoyed it so much that we have had several more since then. The fact that we had tons of luau decorations was another reason why I went with this theme for the Red Box party. That meant I could spend more money on prizes and food.
Ahhh, the food!!! The YUMMIEST part of it all! I had a fabulous time making it. I had Mickey/Minnie and luau themed candy molds. The candy and suckers were a big hit with the kids and the adults! I also found some Mickey sprinkles for the cake, just the right touch for it.
I called Disney Shopping and ordered some pretzels that were Mickey heads, some Mickey shortbread cookies and some Mickey pasta. These were some really fun additions to the food.
I used my Mickey egg form to cut out PB&J sandwiches and to make rice crispy treats with. We left some plain and dipped some in chocolate. It was just like getting a Disney treat straight from the parks!
Here is a shot of our table top decorated with confetti we cut out with a Mickey punch. Check out the wonderful picture of my nephew all decked out in his best luau attire. My niece, who loves sweets, had her eye on the cake! I thoroughly enjoyed hosting this party and I would jump at the chance to host another. I mean, who doesn’t love Disney???!!! It is absolutely YUMMY!
