Party Recap

We threw a small Minion themed birthday party for our son's 4th birthday party. I DIY-ed mostly everything for this party, including the cake and cookies. I got a bunch of ideas from Pinterest but had to simplify a lot of things due to time crunch. I played a lot with paper goods and printables which I did on my own using Photoshop. We catered BBQ for the party. Everyone had a blast!

    Nice job!!! I love the minions and I love your party. Well done, the shirts your son is wearing and friend, the decorations were adorable the hats and treat bags were a nice touch. I, especially, loved the way you decorated the little frames on wall in back of table with minions. It had that wow factor and made you think you were among lots of minions.

    I designed it for regular size paper and printed it on a cardstock. Then used hot glue to put it all together. I sell the printable in my Etsy shop.
