Inspired by the newly-released Mirror Mirror starring Julia Roberts, we're throwing a kid-approved Snow White birthday party, minus the poison apple.
Host a Snow White Birthday Party
You're sure to be named the Fairest of the Land when you host this Snow White-inspired birthday bash. In honor of the newly-released
Mirror Mirror, starring Julia Roberts, we're offering party ideas, recipes, and even a little apple treat for Moms and Dads
in attendance. Who needs a kiss from a prince? This party is its own happy ending.
Dwarf Favorite: Cream Puffs
In Mirror Mirror, the dwarfs sneak a batch of cream puffs after crashing the Evil Queen’s wedding. These cream puffs are party
ready using store-bought frozen cream puffs and a few delicious sauces. If your party is for little ones, you can skip the
sauces (and sticky fingers), or put them on the side for adults to enjoy.
The only happy ending to come from the Evil Queen’s wedding was seeing these must-try desserts on the dessert buffet. Macaroons
are an impossibly light treat that’s part cookie, part brownie, and completely decadent. In this recipe, pecans help the ooey-gooey
mixture hold its shape. They’re sized by tablespoon, making them ideal for pint-sized palates.
Everyone knows that Snow White has pale skin, ruby-red lips, and a heart of gold. When the dwarfs spirit her away from danger,
she returns the favor my sharing fresh, succulent strawberries. Adding naturally sweet fruit to a birthday party spread is
a great way to encourage kids to eat seasonally. Dip them in chocolate and you may just have a riot to get to the dessert
No Snow White party would be complete without a ripe apple. While the apple in the movie creates a chaotic spiral into danger,
these cuties are perfectly harmless. Use a melon baller to make mini apples bites, then dip them in a variety of goodies,
such as chocolate chips or candy pieces. Serve these as a bite-sized dessert or wrap them up for oh-so cute party favors.
Kids love a fun and festive theme, so make all the main dishes at the party mini to match the theme of the dwarfs. These burgers,
served on dinner rolls, are just enough for the to-scale tummies of your pint-sized party guests.
Quiche is an easy option when serving kids. Keep the ingredients simple by skipping the crust and using kid-friendly ingredients,
like Cheddar cheese. The added bonus of broccoli in these little quiches, which keep with the “mini” theme, is a boost of
needed nutrients at a sugar-laden party.
These veggie-filled rolls are easy to pick up and enjoy as kids work their way from activity to activity at a birthday party.
To keep the Snow White theme booming, encourage kids to come dressed as their favorite dwarf. Can you name all seven? We’ll
give you the answer on the next slide.
In the original film, the dwarfs weren’t named. You can thank Disney for that! How many names did you get right? Happy, Sleepy,
Grumpy, Doc, Sneezy, Dopey, and Bashful are the names of the crew Disney brought to its viewers. And, after you repeat that
list 15 times during the party, you’ll be hankering for the adults-only treat: a sour-apple cocktail.
Mirror Mirror calls for a love potion to bring Snow White and her rescuing Prince together. Serve kids “Puppy Love” potion
as a reminder to be kind to everyone, and to save the kissing for when they’re a few years older.
