#DisneySide @HomeCelebration 2015 - A Multi-Generational Party!

I received free products in order to host a #DisneySide @HomeCelebration. Thoughts and ideas are my own.

Last month our #DisneySide box arrived, stuffed full of fun games, decorations, favors and extras to create a party at home! A big thank you to Disney, MomSelect and all of the wonderful sponsors, we had a magical time at our @HomeCelebration!

Mickey was the first to arrive!

In keeping with the multi-generational theme, I invited my mom, mother-in-law, my kids, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends, in age from 10 months to 67!

The guests came ready in their finest Disney gear, some in costume or hats, some bedecked with trading pins. There was even a Mickey silhouette umbrella to block the sun!

My box included some items that I gifted to my party guests in a giveaway, including Twinings tea, a Mickey Mouse cake pan, HP Create Memories You Keep packs of photo paper, Beyond Meat coupons, Disney travel luggage tags and Crayola crayons.

I supplemented with a few store-bought prizes of my own like Frozen card games, a Lightning McQueen car, baby board books and coloring books. I even had extra Disneyland maps, which came in handy since one of our guests was headed there with their family right after the party!

In addition, I collaborated with a few fantastic Etsy vendors to arrange giveaways not only to my #DisneySide party guests but to my blog readers as well. I’ll be posting the giveaways here so be sure you’re following along by signing up for my newsletter!

My happy kids!

The day was bright and sunny and unusually warm for February, even for San Diego! We sat outside on the patio to enjoy our lunch and treats.

I’d appliqued my little one a Mike tee shirt to wear for the occasion and Daddy had put it on him the week prior so it needed to be washed before the party.

Fortunately my #DisneySide party box included a box of All detergent Pacs and a sample packet of Wisk so Mike Wazowski was clean and ready to party!

I’d decorated the party table with a Mickey & Friends tablecloth, napkins, cups, plates and cupcake stand from Disney that was sent in my party box.

Our guests came ready to eat and I’d prepared Crock Pot teriyaki pulled pork with the Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce that was sent in my #DisneySide box. Here’s the recipe on the Soy Vay website! Pork and coleslaw sandwiches…yum!

Vintage-looking prints from Vivid Editions on Etsy set the Disneyland theme on our table setting. Several other prints from the shop were given to party guests.

Ahem…Some party guests ate their cookies before they ate their lunch! Glad I took this picture though because I neglected to take a shot of these cute Mickey cookies. I made them using Americolor food dye and sanding sugar from The Baker’s Confections on Etsy!

After lunch (and a few more cookies), the kids were geared up for games! We played Pin the Smile on Mickey (using the Baymax Big Hero beanie from Whosits & Whatsits as our eye covering!) Next was the Word Search, which proved to be a challenge! These games, along with some others were included in our #DisneySide party box.

My niece won the coveted light up Frozen Minnie Ears from Yesely’s Creations on Etsy. She’d been eyeing them since she first arrived at the party and will wear them with her Elsa costume, naturally!

Other prizes for our guests included this appropriate-for-any-age necklace from Sugar Lane Designs on Etsy, that my nephew won and turned over immediately to his mom! He also loved these adorable Mickey soaps that Snowblade Creations on Etsy sent as party favors, in kid-friendly scents like lemon, cherry and cotton candy!

The leather and washer handstamped bracelets from To Infinity Ohio on Etsy were a hit with the boys, as I expected! My daughter gravitated immediately to the whimsical Lost Boys ring from Whosits and Whatsits.

The beautiful bangle bracelet from Vintage Stamp Jewels was highly coveted by my mother-in-law. The Mickey necklace was my favorite, so I glad I was able to win the prize and make it mine forever!

Disneyland-themed bows for my girly guests to wear during the party were provided by Heidi of Emma Saxton Studios on Etsy. Love her fun and whimsical designs, she is the absolute best!

Mmmm, time for dessert! I couldn’t wait to taste this gorgeous cake donated by Nothing Bundt Cakes. Seriously, this marble cake was so moist and delicious! And isn’t this princess design perfect for a Disney theme?! Can you see where my preschooler “sampled” the frosting?

A cake mix from Duff Goldman was provided in the Disney party box and this tie dye version was so fun and festive! The Bakers Confections sent me these custom mixed sprinkles, polka dotted cupcake papers and red cups with tiny wooden ice cream spoons (that I decorated with a strip of polka dotted washi tape).

Neapolitan, yum! Topped with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkles!

Oops, someone left their cupcake unattended and this little guy grabbed it!

Our #DisneySide party box include a few fun favors, including Mickey and Friends stickers, pencils and princess-themed peel-off nail polish. We also added these adorable soaps from Snowblade Creations.

In all, every guest had a wonderful time and left with big smiles across their face! Must be the Disney magic at work! Thank you again Disney and MomSelect for the fantastic party box and the inspirations to create a last memory!
