Finding Dory Party Ideas

Finding Dory party ideas Including a Finding Dory dessert table |

We saw Finding Dory opening weekend, and our whole family loved it! The movie is funny, sweet, and touching, and the message about accepting people’s differences is so universal and important.

When Party City asked me to style a Finding Dory party I was happy to do it. I wanted to make the party simple, stylish, and fun.

To set the mood, I hung a large Dory party banner behind my dessert table and added pop-up Dory centerpieces.

As a special treat, I made homemade candy sushi.

I shaped Rice Krispie Treats to look like rice balls, topped them with small Swedish fish, and wrapped them with black licorice wheels to look like nori (seaweed). My daughter and her friends thought these were super cute! Btw, this is the only kind of sushi my daughter will eat.

I put out large blue gumballs as an accent, and as an extra treat, I drizzled melted royal blue candy melts over microwave popcorn, then served them in cute Dory snack cups.

To add something salty, in a small plastic fish bowl, I put out Goldfish crackers.

I bought vanilla cupcakes at the grocery store, then added these cute Wilton Dory toppers.

For drinks I served blue Gatorade and added blue striped paper straws.

I love how great the cupcakes looked with such little effort.

At the end of the party, my daughter and friends loved ripping them open to get their loot!

    We're going to the drive-in Sunday to watch this! I think we'll pack some blue Gatorade, goldfish crackers and make some blue popcorn to take with us! Thanks for the ideas! Very cute!
