Despicable Me Party

A Despicable Good Time

Here is the long awaited Despicable Me Party Reveal that Giveaway Winner Summer won for her 9 year old son from Fabulously Smitten.

I cannot tell you how much fun it is planning a party so DESPICABLE! 
The Inspiration Board was so amazing to create. 
 The Minions really make for fun and easy crafting ideas.

The Minion Cups were very quick to create. 
 I used cups from the Dollar Store,
which were in a pack of 10. 
The black ribbon and googly eyes were from Wal-Mart in the craft section. 
My trusty hot glue gun did and her magic and the minions came to life!


Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods make for delicious and non-messy party snacks,
sweet and salty! 


 Take and Make Minions seemed like a must for the younger crowd! 
These Minions were created with Dollar Store sponges, as well as felt and googly eyes from Wal-Mart.  I used my hot glue gun to attach everything.
Shrink Rays make the ideal parting gift for party goers!
I used a picture of the Birthday Boy to adorn the tags for party favors!
Here is the breakdown of everything despicable:
