Last month I was given the opportunity to host a Villain-Themed DisneySide party for my daughter’s girl scout troop. We had such a great time. With all the tools thanks to MomSelect and Disney, we were able to pull off a great party for each girl to show their DisneySide!

DSBoxOpen

The box came with so many goodies- from Twinnings Tea, Duff Goldman cakes, All, Disney (with puzzles, games, and trivia), My Image Bracelet Maker, and more! Opening it was like Christmas morning, I knew the girls would love all of it.

We started out the night with some villainous cupcakes that were totally delicious and devoured in seconds:

The girls had such a fun time. We used our party as a way to build team-work. We divided the girls into two groups- so they could visit “stations” to solve trivia, build puzzles, and help each other make bracelets.

They all worked together and shared stories about their trips to Disney World and Disneyland. We had such a fun night, thanks to everyone who came and Disney who made it all possible!
