Despicable Me Cake Toppers
Use this set to make aa beach themed Minion birthday cake. The set comes with a floating minion figure, two Minion diver places and a beach scene to create that island all the minions were on in the movie.
If you want to include all the characters from the movie aside from just the minions, this set will be helpful as it includes 10 pieces to make a scene on your cake. I also like the fact that after the party your child can keep these as collectible figures.

Minions Cupcake Toppers
Minion cupcake rings make cupcake decorating easy.. You just have to place these on to cupcakes and your done. Another bonus is that they also serve a second purpose as ring party favors.
Minions Party Decorations
Yellow and blue can be the main colors in your minions party decorations mainly because the minions are yellow and wear blue overalls. A great way to spread main theme colors around a room is to use balloons and streamers. So a few yellow and blue balloons bunched together and some streamers will do much to add a bit of vibrance to any room.
You could make DIY minion balloons by using the minion face template printables or use a sharpie pen to draw the faces on yellow latex balloons as seen here. It's simple inexpensive and also fun to do, so you could even have your kids help you make these minions decorations and have them floating around.
As further wall décor you can make minion paper plate faces to hang up on your walls. The minions always have so many funny expressions and so a few of these plates can easily be made by printing and sticking on the face templates to the plates or by drawing on them. Purple evil minion plates would be awesome as well and Halegraphx has made face templates great for them, so they are possible to make as well. Make their crazy hair by adding cotton wool dyed with purple coloring. Take this a step further by stringing the plates together to make a banner style decoration with minion faces, You could even use this for a game where the kids have to identify all the minions - a little research on their individual characteristics might be needed here so you can add features to their plate faces.
Coloring pages can also make great despicable me decorations. Print of some free Minion coloring pages online and have your child color in the pages, then stick them around the party. Nothing special but it's a good way to add a few extra touches to your party and it's always nice to have your child know that they have contributed to their own party.
