Mickey & Minnie Birthday Party

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Our family & friends joined us yesterday to celebrate my daughter's third and my son's first birthdays!  They are pictured here with Daddy.
They each had a personalized T-shirt with their name & age which I purchased from My Preppy Rags on eBay. 

Aren't these invitations cute?  I ordered them from Cupcake Card Invites.  I purchased them through her eBay store and provided her with the personalization info.  She then mailed me the file to print at any photo center as a 4x6 photo.  There were two "tickets" per photo, so each was cut into two.  I loved how these looked.  There are also many other themes to choose from.

The treat bags were super easy to customize.  I bought plain red and plain pink treat boxes from Walmart.  I glued white buttons on the red ones.  I used white circle labels (like for garage sales) on the pink ones and used a hole punch to tie a ribbon on the top.  I purchased ear headbands from The Party Store online and used the hole punch again to put ribbon in for the girls.  The treat bags also had Mickey Mouse Clubhouse coloring pages (from a coloring book I bought at Walmart), Mickey Mouse (for the boys) and Minnie Mouse (for the girls) crayons from The Party Store, Minnie beaded bracelets, also from The Party Store and Mickey Mouse wristbands from Fun To Collect online.

I did the centerpieces (below) using empty formula cans, black spray-painted Styrofoam balls, fabric, felt, buttons, ribbon, crafter's glue, toothpicks, wooden dowels, and tissue paper.  Most of the craft items were purchased at Jo Ann Fabrics.  I was really pleased with how they turned out.

The punchies (confetti) that you see on the table were created by StarLight StarBright Creations.  They were so cute and her prices and shipping time were awesome!  They are a lot bigger than the typical confetti you would purchase at the store.  I was pleased with the size.  She did a custom order for me and was great about it!  She has a lot of other custom items as well.

The Cakes!!  I was so thrilled with the cakes!  We got tons of compliments on them.  Thank you so much to Shannon, the mother of the smiley little girl I provide daycare for.  The Minnie cake was inspired by a photo I found at Simply Captivating Events.  The Mickey cake was inspired by a photo I found at Coolest Birthday Cakes.

I made white chocolate dipped pretzels and chocolate dipped Mickey krispie treats.  Yummy!

Of course, the best part of the whole party was watching my babies enjoy themselves!  They are so precious and grow up so fast!  I love them to pieces!  Here are a few of my favorite pics from the party:

Blowing out her candles.

Carson is being proper with his spoon (lol).....

....and then his auntie stole his spoon!

Kaiya decided spoons weren't necessary for her, either!


Kaiya's favorite present was real diapers and wipes for her baby dolls!  She was ready to go home after she got these and toted them around in the gift bag for the rest of the party.  Such a little mommy!

Carson was very into the tissue paper!  He pulled it out of one bag and then onto the next.  No presents needed! 

Just shootin' hoops, Mommy!

Awww...giving Mommy love.

It was a fabulous day!

WOW!!! You did an AMAZING job with all of your handmade creations! I love how everything came out. It looks like your little one's had a great time. It made me smile to see that your daughter got REAL diapers and baby wipes :) That would have been the best gift ever for my little mommy. Play diapers just won't do for her babies, only the best will work ;)

What cute ideas! A few months ago we celebrated my Munchkin's 1st bday and hands down it was to be a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme. Definitely could have used some of your tips! :)
