It’s Minion Mania! Andrei’s 1st birthday bash was a sure hit, huge thanks to Gru’s adorable little henchmen. No one could deny the cuteness and charm of these yellow fellows, so it was no surprise that Minions have found their way into parties as themes. As if that is not exciting enough, Andrei notched things up a bit and had a Surfer Minions splurge! Needless to say, the party place was bursting with minions donning their signature denim overalls and funky board shorts. Event planner and stylist Party Bitz and Pieces deserves a pat on the back for successfully transforming the venue into an oceanfront beach party, even Dr. Nefario would be pretty impressed. Yellow and blue was the main color scheme and the beach vibes were incorporated through the sand and surf elements.

What better way to usher guests in, than with the minions’ favorite food in the world, right? So for the entrance, a banana bar was set up and minion masks were readily available to seal in the playful mood.
Beach bliss has certainly been brought indoors, thanks to this wonderful main area brimming with playful minions! Andrei’s huge name standee stood against a beach backdrop, shaded with the minions’ signature blue and yellow. Balloons in the same color palette were also added and banners in polka dots had sealed in the oomph in this main area.
True to its theme, the party tables were spruced up with none other than minions! Table numbers were printed on minion cards and a minion figure served as a centerpiece. Even the table linens were consistent with the theme: yellow table spread with blue napkins and blue polka-dotted runner.
Andrei’s 2-layered cake showcases some of the minions’ favorite beach antics: from beach-bumming to swimming to surfing, everything spells out what a party should be: FUN!
Reflecting the elements on the main area, the desserts station also had the beach as the background and a handful of minions as decorations. Add in some surfboards and a kite, and you’ve got the outdoor feels. What I like about this area, though (which I’m sure the guests would agree) is that there’s not just one table; 2 more display racks were added on each side of the main table, which is more than enough to tempt anyone with a sweet tooth. Notice that the main table was displayed as an actual beachfront, with minions on sailboats and cupcakes! Sugar cookies, rice krispies, and cake pops completed the roundup of these villainously delectable confections.
Only Gru-approved entertainment can be shown at Andrei’s birthday bash! Magic shows never fail to wow an audience, and Andrei’s guests were no exception.
Can’t hit the beach anytime soon? Go and take a shot instead at the photo area, complete with beach vibes and a couple of cute minions to boot!
