A Villain-Themed #DisneySide Celebration

I received promotional items for participating in this campaign. All opinions are my own. 

We were so excited to once again sign up for a #DisneySide @ Home Celebration kit through Disney Parks and MomSelect! We had a fantastic time hosting last year's #DisneySide Celebration, so when we found out about this year's opportunity, we threw our hats in the ring right away. The Disney Villains theme- geared toward teens and tweens-  was perfect for our group.

Here are some of our highlights:
  • A box reveal video was in order this year, so we had fun putting together our very first iMovie...complete with a villainous soundtrack (which remains stuck in my head- fair warning)!

  • Our #DisneySide Celebration kit was packed with decorations, games and activity ideas- all with a villain theme. From banners to BINGO, puzzles to pin-the-smile... the kit was packed with fun.

  • It’s no secret that we love Disney Pin Trading here! We had a great time incorporating pin trading into our last #DisneySide party, so we decided to do it again this year…with a villainous slant! We added a Maleficent pin to our trading mix, and engaged in a lively round of frenzied pin trading! 

Can you spot the Mistress of All Evil lurking amongst the pins?

The person who ended up with the Maleficent pin after some fun and frenzied 
speedtrading went home with the pin, as well as a Maleficent doll.  

  • Here in the Northeast, it's been a brutal winter. Even for communities like mine- arguably best known for our snow- this year was harsh. It's no surprise, then, that the highlight of our celebration- which took place on a frigid, snowy, icy, day- was settling in to watch the vacation planning dvd! There's nothing like dreaming of your next trip to take away the cold weather blues, and the planning dvd was a welcome antidote to this endless winter.

  • In addition to activities, games and prizes, the #DisneySide Celebration kit also contained some practical items for all aspects of the party. Included were photo paper packs from HP, a cool tie dye cake mix from Charm City Cakes, baking supplies from Wilton, a Twinings tea sampler, and All and Wisk detergents, for help with clean up.  A big thank you goes out to all the sponsors, for helping make the party a success!

Ahh...the perfect way to wind down
after our celebration!
