Shop our Despicable Me theme for everything you need to create a Minion themed party. Below we have some great ideas for making your party one-of-a-kind but incorporating some DIY stuff along with the many that we sell here.
Gru vs. evil is what Despicable Me is all about. Your party will be all good and no evil if you shop our Despicable Me themed party supplies for deluxe all-in one packages full of party basics like, plates, cups, napkins and table covers.
Using a black sharpie marker, draw minion goggles and faces and write out the party details.
When the writing is dry, un-inflate the balloon.
Place balloon in an envelope with a note instructing guests:
"Gru says, I'm afraid your invitation met my shrink ray. Blow up this balloon and join my Minions"
Another great idea is to host a movie party with Despicable Me as the theme. Consider sending a movie ticket invitation that you print out or make from card stock with the party details as the movie admission information. Have the guests bring the ticket to the party and you can rip it like they do in the theater. We have suggestions on how to throw a memorable Movie Party.

Setting the Table:
Of you're using solid color party ware, decorate in yellow, blue, black and white. If you'd rather decorate with themed party ware, check out our Despicable Me Standard or Deluxe kits. If you would rather go without a kit, the great thing about setting the table is how all of the tableware can be mixed and matched with solid colored napkins, cups or plates.

Goggles at each place setting with a place card for each guest.

Despicable Me Food Ideas:
We have some cute party ideas for deliciously despicable treats:
Popcorn in Minion bags:
Serve your guests popcorn while they gather for a showing of Despicable Me. Popcorn will be easy to serve and eat if each guest has his own bag. Use yellow treat bags that you can decorate with marker before the party or have the guests decorate as an activity.
Each bag can easily become a cute minion using:
Yellow paper treat bags
Cut out eyes from white construction paper
Cut out silver circles from tin foil to use as goggles.
You can also simply use markers to draw on faces.
Cut out blue overall shapes from construction paper or card stock to glue on bag.
You can serve traditional popcorn or some interesting Popcorn Mix -Ins:
Pizza popcorn - garlic powder, Parmesan cheese and oregano
Banana chips and chocolate chips
Pretzels, peanuts and M&M's
Twizzlers and pink sugar
Marshmallows and small graham crackers
Raisins and small grapes
Sweetened cereal of all types
Store bought small chocolate frosted donuts
Gently push the stick through two frosted donuts carefully so as not to break the donut.
Keep the donuts close together to resemble goggles.
Place sticks vertically inside a sturdy jar with donuts sticking out.
Bananas seem to be the favorite food of the minions. You can use whole bananas as part of the decorations, peel bananas and serve them in a fruit salad or make
frozen chocolate covered bananas:
Peel fresh bananas
Cut them so that the bottom is flat and the top is rounded
Put a popsicle stick through the flat bottom. This is best to do while some of the peel is still on the banana so you have something to hold.
Melt chocolate or white chocolate using your favorite recipe. You can also use candy melts in various colors. Blue would resemble the overalls the minions wear.
Dip the banana in the chocolate.
Place the bananas on wax paper and freeze until ready to eat.
You can make millions of minions with this easy and fun recipe:
What you need:
Yellow cake icing or yellow candy melts
Blue fruit roll-ups
Black icing in a tube with a small tip
Brownies or cupcakes if you wish to use them
Allow marshmallows to harden slightly.

When the icing or chocolate hardens, use black icing to draw goggles and faces.
Wrap the bottom of the marshmallow with blue fruit roll-up that has been sliced into thin strips.
Set marshmallows on a tray or put the marshmallow on top of a cupcake or brownie.
Create your own party favor using yellow treat boxes decorated with Minion faces.
