10 Fun Ideas for a “Despicable Me” Themed Birthday Party

Finally, it’s that time of the year when you will have more children as guests than adults. Yes, we are talking about your child’s birthday! To make the birthday party more interactive and fun, organizing it around a theme is a good option. As the movie “Despicable Me” was a great hit with both children and adults, this article will give you various ideas for a birthday themed around it. Here are a few of those ideas that will help you get started.

Movie Ticket Invites

The basic idea about these invites is that they should be designed in such a way that they look like movie tickets. If you know someone who is handy with Photoshop, they can design one for you. Otherwise, you can always purchase them from a store or online.

Face Painting

It seems children cannot resist from getting themselves dirty all the time. Face painting is almost close to it, except for the fact that it will be someone who will be painting their face with really cool drawings. Most party hires have face painters as well, so you don’t have to worry about your artistic skills not being good enough.

“Despicable Me” Disposable Cups and Plates

Since the party is going to be full of kids, it is much better to have disposable cutleries. This way you don’t have to worry about them breaking things. Luckily, they are also available in this movie theme, which makes it much easier for you.

Minion Cake


No “Despicable Me” party will be complete if there isn’t a minion cake. Thanks to the popularity of the movies, there is a rise in people ordering for minion cakes and recipes. Plus, these cakes are super cute and will surely get your child excited.

Home Décor

For this theme, the décor is all about yellow and blue. For starters, draw goggles and awkward minion faces on yellow balloons with a marker. You can even use those large Coke bottles to create minions. Paint the bottom half blue, the upper portion yellow, and draw the faces of the minions. Throw in some yellow and blue party streamers and you are good to go.

Shrunken Moon Pops

We all know that children love sugar dipped in their mouth. To appease their sweet tooth, make some pops that will look like small moons, which means they also should have a gray coating to make it look like a room.

Minion Hunt Game

This game is like the Easter egg hunt, but instead of Easter eggs, the children will be searching for eggs that are painted like minions. All you need are plastic Easter eggs; paint them over like minions and put candies inside the eggs.

Unicorn Piñata

For this theme, instead of a normal stuffed piñata, replace it with a unicorn piñata. The piñata will obviously have treats inside and when it is broken, it will shower the kids with heavenly treats.

Minion Mini Totes

The minion mini totes are perfect for party favors. They are basically blue color totes with a minion drawn in the middle. They are totally adorable and all the kids will surely love them. They can even use it to keep stationeries or their lunch box.

“Despicable Me” Stationeries

Thanks to the popularity of the films, there has been tons of “Despicable Me” inspired merchandise, including school stationeries. Another idea for a party favor is to make customized minion bags and fill them up with small stuff children can use, like erasers, pencils, crayons, etc.

It won’t be long before you realize that your kids have grown up and they start living their own lives. Present them with memories that will last a lifetime, and what other occasion can there be than a birthday!
