I’m quite proud of myself and my family for putting this all together. Granted, Mickey Mouse is a staple, so there are plenty of party ideas and supplies, but still. I really liked how everything came together. The birthday banner was made from a banner company that the Hubs used for his job. We bought a wooden frame with clothespins to put together BG3’s monthly pictures. I was so happy to see that Michaels had them pre-made and ready to buy.
This display was on one of the side tables in our living room. The Mickey Mouse glove is a souvenir we got when we went to Disney World a few years back. Those are BG3’s shoes for the party and I framed a subway art of some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse sayings that I got from Simply Real Moms.
We decided to keep the favors simple for this party because we knew there weren’t going to be a lot of kids there. I wanted something the adults could take home. I saw this idea for Mickey Mouse-shaped rice krispies treats and loved it so I got the Hubs’ best friend, who makes the treats all the time, to make a couple trays and we used cookie cutters to get the shape. I printed the favor toppers from Lamberts Lately and I bought the favor bags from Wal-Mart.
For all the wall and door decorations, I printed out a Mickey Mouse head template and cut them from construction paper, with the help of BG1 and her friend. For all the signs, I created them in a Word document using the Waltograph and Mickey Mouse fonts that I found online.
We ordered the cake from Acme, who makes some pretty good cakes. I love how they included the Mickey & Minnie rings as an added decor on the cake. We used a #1 candle that I had saved from BG2’s birthday a few years ago.
For the decor on the treats table, I printed blank labels from Lambert’s Lately and filled them in using the Mickey font. The treats we provided were cheese puffs, goldfish crackers, pretzels, and chips & dip.
I bought the napkins, cups, hanging decor and plates from Wal-Mart and the table cover and polka-dot backdrop from Amazon.
I bought the drink dispensers from Wal-Mart and added the signs the same way I did with all the other decor.
The PARTY sign I printed from Wonderful Chaotic Life and I created the “Alayna’s Clubhouse” sign in Word.
My sister was kind enough to make Mickey cupcakes for the party and they were delicious.
My SIL also made cake pops, another delicious treat.
All in all, the party was a success. BG3 wasn’t happy, but then most babies usually aren’t when there’s so many people around and she’s a pretty clingy baby as is. In any case, I was happy with the turnout and so happy to be able to celebrate her birthday with close friends and family.
