Disney’s Encanto Birthday Party.

Disney's Encanto birthday party

My daughter is obsessed with Disney’s Encanto movie!

I always try to plan parties that my kids will love; I suggested doing an Encanto Birthday party for her and she was ecstatic!

I replicated many of the decorations from the movie as best as I could afford. I did do some research and there are many similar items in Central and South America and Colombia, yet some of my items came from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, even China and other areas.

I did not have an unlimited budget for my daughter’s seven year old party. Getting all the items I used from Colombia inexpensively was not possible, also I used what I had on hand to save money. If this were a professional party that I had an unlimited budget for, I perhaps could have done better.

Most of the “authentic” items I had on display did come from South and Central America. But many items that I used to represent the Madrigal family member’s magical gifts were sourced where ever I could affordably find them.

It was such a fun party to throw! I love party planning, Disney movies, and South and Central American culture, so this was a great combination for a party for me.

To begin, we held a planning meeting.

This meeting involved the two of us cuddled up under a blanket watching Encanto together.

We discussed ideas of items we could use for the party.

I love that in Encanto they are holding Antonio’s party so there was so much to work with as far as replicating a party.

For the invitations, I put together an invite in Photoshop with the Madrigal family partying together.

I will be putting up a post soon on how I made these invites within the next week or two and include a free PSD and JPEG download.

If you need a file before the post goes live, just email me and my VA will email it to you. 

My address and phone number were replaced with “Tuesday” for privacy purposes.

I knew I wanted to highlight the party basket that Mirabel was holding in the movie.

I have posted about the decorations I created for this Encanto birthday party and share the details of items in Mirabel’s and our party baskets.

It was a fun basket to find items for.

I was able to replicate the party basket pretty easily as well.

My daughter loves chocolate, so I had a white chocolate fountain with food to dip into the chocolate.

As mentioned, we had a total blast at the party.

There were 19 girls there and I had 3 tables set out with 19 chairs.

My parents came and helped and I hired a neighbor girl to help out as well.

The party went off without a hitch! I was able to keep the 19 girls fairly well behaved and entertained.

So many of the girls have mentioned that they had soo much fun and that it was the best party ever! That made me happy because I really do go all out for birthday parties. I do this so that my child and their friends kids have a lot of fun so it made me happy to hear that they did have fun.

I hope these ideas help you throw an at-home Disney’s Encanto Birthday Party as well!

Anita, You did a wonderful job and clearly put much thought into it with a budget in mind. What's most disappointing is the previous comment from Betty! FIrst time, I see such negativity on Pinterest and that's the most disappointing.

Yes, The film was based of Colombian family BUT also very similar to other latin american countries. May I add the creators were Mexican and Puerto Rican. Lol! If it looked like Coco I'm sure you would've decorated a bit differently and you shouldn't have had to comment on her post but did so gracefully which shows your great character!! :)

I will say...My favorite part is the basket!! I thought of replicating it myself but wasn't sure where to begin so, I found this very helpful...Especially, with the links you provided. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas with the wonderful party you hosted!! :)

Hi Anita, I'm trying to plan the decor for my grandson's birthday party and love your Encanto ideas! Can you tell me what the things are and/or where to get the things that look like square striped maracas with handles that hang from Mirabel's party basket? Thanks alot!

Yes, they are called wooden baleros and the ones I purchased on amazon seem to no longer be sold... here is another similar balero sold on Amazon... link here.

You may be able to find the ones I used by googling this: IER Multi-Colored Wood Balero Mexican Toy - Assorted Colors - 3 Pack Brand: IER

I saw some on Etsy as well. I think the ones I purchased were 3 for $15.00

Thanks!

It’s really disappointing to see this Encanto party look very Mexican. Encanto is based in Colombia, serapes, piñatas, & those types of sombreros are from Mexico 🇲🇽 not Colombia 🇨🇴 This looks more like a Coco party.

I replicated many of the decorations from the movie as best as I could afford. I did do some research and there are many similar items in both Mexico and Columbia, yet some of my items came from Brazil, Peru, even China and other areas.

I did not have an unlimited budget for my daughter’s seven year old party. Getting all the items I used from Columbia inexpensively was not possible, also I used what I had on hand to save money.

Most of the “authentic” items I had on display did come from South and Central America. But many items that I used to represent the Madrigal family member’s magical gifts were sourced where ever I could affordably find them.

To make this more authentic I likely would have just used Columbian food but again, it was for a little girls’ party and so I had them in mind while planning this as well.
