Finding Dory Birthday Party by Laura Aguirre


Finding Dory is coming out June 17th, and my family and I are SO excited! To celebrate Disney’s new summer release, I put together a fun ‘Just Keep Swimming’ party!

I often celebrate new movie releases – especially Disney movies! So when I learned of the Finding Dory movie coming out, I was ready to get the party started!

The first thing I did was put together a backdrop for my main party table. I wanted to create an ocean setting to represent where Dory and her friends lived. To do this, I started with a roll of under the sea patterned paper. I added a couple blue wavy foil curtains over the top of the paper. Along the sides of the backdrop, I added a large seaweed cardboard standee and a coral standee.

I used styrofoam letters to spell out Dory, and clear balloons were used to represent bubbles! Blue and orange paper lanterns and a blue tablecloth helped tie it all together.

On our dessert table, super cute Finding Dory treat cups held popcorn for our guests to munch on, and we all enjoyed drinking from our Plastic Fish Bowls that I used for cups. Yellow striped straws added a pop of color to the mix as well.

Cupcakes, another must-have party food, were wrapped with personalized Ocean Friends cupcake wrappers with a quote from Dory herself on it. Super cute!

I also created some fun personalized Ocean Friends stickers to go on the Beach Pail party favors. Our guests absolutely LOVED the fish crackers we gave out in DIY Ocean Friends Favor Bags.

I personalized an Ocean Friends Banner to welcome all the guests to our ‘Just Keep Swimming’ Party! Out in the yard, I set up a Finding Dory water table for all the guests to play with.

My most favorite party to any children’s party that I create is the "party table"! This is where I love to get crazy with table decor and party food! Hanging above the kid’s party table I strung Yellow Tissue poms, orange and blue paper lanterns, and super cute Finding Dory Tissue Decorations.

I covered that table with a Finding Dory Table Cover and added a Petal Fabric Table Runner over the top, making it look like a beautiful blue ocean.

Our guests loved using all Finding Dory Party Supplies! They at from Finding Dory luncheon plates, and sipped from Finding Dory cups, and even wiped their hands on fun Finding Dory Luncheon Napkins.

I stuck some adorable Blue Wooden Cutlery inside of more plastic fish bowls for the kiddos. They loved the idea of taking home their very own fish bowl!

I was able to find lots of matching party favors, from my local Target! They fit perfectly inside of Finding Dory Buckets. I had them sitting out on the table and used them as party favors instead of the party decor. I took mini-Finding Dory bubbles and placed them on top of mini white cake stands!

With all of these amazing products from Shindigz, you too can create your own Finding Dory party! Are you going to be seeing the movie this summer?

Just keep swimming!
