How to make a costume?
What is a themed holiday without a colorful main character? The simplest, but rather expensive option is renting a suit or its individual elements. But you can make yourself a hero of the holiday. This will require a yellow T-shirt and hat, denim overalls, felt. From the material it is necessary to cut out eyes, glasses, hair. Then sew these elements to the cap, and the unpretentious minion costume is ready!
To maintain the theme of the holiday, invite guests to also dress in the style of the event.
In addition to standard ornaments in the form of various garlands, balloons, caps, dishes with images of little men, we offer non-standard ideas how to fulfill the birthday design in the style of minions:
- you can make "cartoon" characters from various materials: pumpkins, plastic bottles, candles;
- to thematically arrange zones "SELFI";
- organize a "kendi bar", where various small sweets (gingerbread, muffins, candy) have the form of cartoon characters;
- to allocate a place for the "creative zone", where guests will be asked to make minions of their own;
- make a surprise ball in the form of the protagonist.
Birthday in the style of "Minions" involves active outdoor games. Children simply will not have time to sit at the table, trying culinary delights. Therefore, treats should be simple and easy to use without using cutlery. For example, we offer such dishes for children's festive table:
- chicken or meat shish kebabs;
- cheese snacks on skewers;
- vegetable salads in tartlets;
- vegetable fondue with warm cheese.
A separate food-zone of the holiday is "kendi bar". It is recommended to demonstrate it after the guests have already eaten the main dishes. After that, everyone who wants during the whole holiday can independently treat themselves to sweets.
