that allow you create personalized invitations. Just download the invitations, fill in the customizable fields, print them out on card stock, pop them into envelopes, and mail them, and voila, you are ready for some Minnie Mouse-inspired fun.
Decoration for the Minnie Mouse Baby Shower
At the entrance, place a life-size Minnie Mylar balloon to welcome the guests. Decorate the party venue with a huge Minnie Mouse "BABY SHOWER" banner made of pink Minnie Mouse cutouts with big red polka-dotted bows. You can even have a banner saying "BABY GIRL" or ''IT'S A GIRL''. A great alternative to the traditional banner can be a cute baby banner with red letters and some little baby items such as pacifiers and newborn socks attached to it. You can also look for peel-and-stick Minnie Mouse wall decals along with some red and white polka-dot balloons to decorate the venue.
For the centerpiece, look for some innovative ideas such as flowers arranged in red Minnie Mouse boots, or a personalized red and white polka-dotted jug. What's more, once the party is over, you can even handout these colorful centerpieces as party favors.
Minnie Mouse Baby Shower Food
Want the food to also complement the red and white polka dots Minnie Mouse theme? Try cupcakes in red polka-dotted cups with small Minnie Mouse cutouts on top, or enjoy a delicious strawberry panna cotta
made with fresh cream and strawberries. You can serve some delicious cheesecake with red and white polka dots, or get a huge rose swirl cake. Cut out some Minnie Mouse sandwiches and fruits as well.
Decorate the food table with a polka-dotted table cover, Minnie Mouse tableware, pink, red, and white colorful pom-poms, and huge Minnie Mouse cutouts on the wall.
Minnie Mouse-inspired Baby Shower Gifts
Choose gifts wisely for the mother-to-be. Instead of gifting a boring diaper bag with teddy bears and yellow ducks, opt for a stylish red diaper bag with a Minnie Mouse graphic, or a motif that appeals to your sense of style. Alternately, you can gift a cute bodysuit with the logo or graphic of your favorite cartoon fashionista. Include a cute baby hat with Minnie Mouse ears and bow, and booties with polka-dotted bows to complete your gift set. You can also gift Minnie Mouse play gyms, stuffed toys, or clothes from the official Disney store.
Minnie Mouse Party Favors
Cosmetic pouches, organic strawberry jam, or potted plants with Minnie Mouse logos can serve as perfect favors for this baby shower. Include printable Minnie "thank you" cards with these favors to add those finishing touches to a great themed baby shower.
This classic and cute baby shower is something that everyone will love. Ask the guests to dress up in Minnie-inspired outfits, and make sure that you have lots of fun while enjoying the special day for the soon-to-be mommy.
