It started with a magical email from the Disney Parks team and MomSelect. Hooray, hooray its party planning day, since I have teens, I was selected to host a Disney Villains theme, perfect for my family being that we enjoyed “Maleficent” this past July on the Disney Fantasy. Since we are from Louisiana, I decided a little twist was appropriate and intertwined Disney’s theme with Louisiana flavor; therefore making it a Disney Side Mardi~Gras Maleficent @Home Celebration. I gleefully awaited my party planning box and when it arrived I almost burst into pixie dust. I happy danced around the house leaving my family and pets perplexed, woot!
I set the date for February 28, 2015 at 6PM and mailed out the Disney Side Villains invites from my Disney Side @Home Celebration party box. Now on to my favorite part, decorating. I kept the colors villainous; purple, black and green and I also added a few extra decorations of my own for the twist I previously mentioned.
Another fabulous part of the planning, the delicious menu. I came up with Mardi~Gras style delights such as; Jambalaya, Jalapeno Cornbread and King Cake Cupcakes mixed with some villainous treats like poisoned apples dipped in chocolate. I made a sinister punch filled with scary fruit and it tasted fantastical, as did the Twinings Tea. I also served up a perfectly color-schemed candy station with gift bags that included Disney Luggage Tags and HP CMYK Packs for my guests.
Now on to the ultimate fun of the night, the Disney Side @Home Celebration games. The first activity everyone enjoyed was the My Image Bracelet Maker. It was great for showing our Disney Side all evening long. Next we played “Pin a smile on Mickey” and surprisingly it was the biggest hit of the night. It dumbfounded me, because these were teenagers I was dealing with and they thoroughly enjoyed this game and the prize a Taco Bell gift card. Last but not least we played Disney Trivia and I was thrilled with the Disney knowledge from all our guests, I can clearly see why we’re all friends.
All in all we devoured delicious treats, played the Disney word search and had lots of laughs throughout the night. A big thank you and shout out to Leanne Jakubowski, Jamie Langdon and the entire Disney Parks team in partnership with MomSelect for making my Disney Side @Home Celebration memorable.
