Happy Birthday Donald! - Donald Duck Birthday Blog Hop


I'm joining some of my favorite Disney Blogging Friends today to celebrate the birthday of everyone's favorite quacker - Donald Duck!!  Please feel free to hop on board with us and share your Donald Duck birthday party ideas!!

First an overview - for me color plays a large part in setting the mood for your party.  For a Donald Duck themed party I would choose:  Blue, White, Yellow, Red.  In leiu of having Donald Duck pictures all over the room you can add reminders of him with sailor hats, feathers, red bows - you get the idea.  Also add fun food ideas like "Cheese & Quackers" or "Donald's Dunkers" to the food table.  But most of all have fun!!


Birthday Banner 

I love this cute anchor themed banner I found on Etsy, it really sets the tone for your party!

Donald Duck Toys
Circle Backdrop


Go for the unexpected.  I think these simlple and colorful circles would make a fabulous backdrop for your food table.  They say Donald Duck without having his picture all over the place.  I also love placing Donald Duck toys or Little Golden Books around the room as a fun a sublte nod to today's birthday boy.

Food Table
This food table is so cute (I love the life preserver)!  It is full of fun details like the flag banner behind the table, and the popcorn cones are such a fun colorful addition to the table.  When searching for ideas to pin for your party don't forget to search similar terms.  I found this one by searching for "sailor party table", unfortunately I am not sure who to credit for this cute table since the pin only went to an uploaded photo.  

Donald Duck Mug Cupcake
Lastly, don't forget your food can double as decoration!  I think a place setting that includes a Donald Duck mug filled with a cupcake makes an adorable addition to the table decor as well as a yummy treat!!

I hope you have enjoyed my Donald Duck Birthday Party ideas!! If you use any of them be sure to share them here in the comments or on the Disney Donna Kay Facebook Page!
