Mulan Party Ideas for a Birthday

When my daughter was younger, she wasn’t interested in the typical princess items.  If it was pink, flouncy, and adorable, she wanted nothing to do with it.  

To this day, she re-watches the Mulan and Mulan II movies and she is almost twenty years old.

If you aren’t familiar with the story of Mulan, she is a Chinese girl that learns her old, ill father is going to be drafted into the Chinese army to defend against the Huns. She knows that her father would die if he joined so to save him, she disguises herself as a boy to take his place.

She doesn’t know it but her ancestors are aware of what she’s trying to do and they aren’t impressed.  They order a tiny little dragon called Mushu to stop her from doing this.

Of course, being a Disney princess movie, there has to be a bit of a romantic ending as well.  In the second movie, she is now engaged.  

She and her fiance, Shang, are preparing for their wedding. Before they can get married, the Emperor assigns them to go on a special mission.  

Mulu does his best to drive the two apart, they are attacked by Mongolians and the fate of China is in question. Check out these Mulan party ideas.

Menu Ideas

There are a variety of Chinese food recipes you can make for the dinner or lunch portion.  I’ve included a few links below to dishes that sound amazing to me.

For the beverage, green tea is delicious.  If your party is for children, you can add milk and honey to the green tea if they’d prefer.

Snacks can include oranges, fortune cookies, and cashews which are typically eaten at Chinese New Year parties and will give your party an authentic feel. Of course, you’ll also want to let the kids eat with chopsticks if they want to.

Check with a local bakery about a Mulan birthday cake.

Chinese lanterns


Red and gold are ideal for decorations.  Consider red tablecloths, napkins, or placemats. If you’re looking for Mulan party ideas, setting the theme is important.

Check a thrift store for oriental fans, gold napkin rings, Chinese lanterns, or candle holders. Dragons are a popular theme in many Chinese stories and since Mushu is an adorable little Chinese dragon in Mulan, any dragon printables or dragon crafts would be appropriate for a Mulan birthday party.

Of course, everyone will want to watch the Mulan movies at the party so make sure that you have copies of these DVDs on hand for the kids to enjoy. Try a game of pin the tail on the dragon if you’re looking for a little bit of active fun for the kids to enjoy.
