Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Ideas

Updated on August 11, 2013

Throw a Mickey Mouse Birthday Party for your favorite loved one, no matter what age!

As I was putting together this birthday lens, it dawned on me that I'd actually like a Mickey Mouse Birthday Party so this lens is not just for kids anymore! That doesn't mean that it's not G-rated (it is).

Mickey Mouse has been an icon in the cartoon industry since his conception by Walt Disney in 1928. And, Mickey Mouse almost wasn't to be - the first name that occurred to Walt Disney was Mortimer Mouse. Now, that's just not right any way you look at it. I can't see writing a Squidoo lens about Mortimer Mouse Birthday Party Ideas.

The story goes that Walt Disney, at the ripe old age of 26, had just had a contract for his Oswald the Rabbit character turned down. While riding back on the train with his wife (a 4 day journey), he started sketching a sad little mouse - I suppose that's how he felt. Little did he know that the death of Oswald the Rabbit would be the birth of one of the greatest cartoon characters of all time - Mickey Mouse.

Come along with me as we explore more of the history of Mickey Mouse and find some great Mickey Mouse birthday party ideas at the same time. My mom is turning 95 next month (October 28, 2011) and, if we didn't already decide on a Halloween costume party for her birthday, I would have done a Mickey Mouse birthday party. There's always next year...I hope!

Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Ideas - - Mickey Mouse cake pans

These are some of the cutest Mickey Mouse cake pans around. Anyone would be thrilled to be presented with one of these darling cakes. They're pretty easy to decorate to as Mickey Mouse is mostly black, tan and red.

Silent films were still in the theaters when Mickey Mouse appeared in the first ever sound cartoon on November 18, 1928.

More than one Mickey Mouse at a birthday present is always advisable and, here, you'll have 10 - yep, you read that right, TEN Mickey Mouse head big mylar balloons.

 

"When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity."

      I don't usually have a birthday party with a theme. Maybe time to do that.
