Party Recap

Cousin's Victoria and Billy celebrate their birthdays' two days apart, so we had a dual party this year. Victoria turned one and Billy turned two!

Idea

Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    I have to say that I loved little Victoria's polka dot dress. It said "Minnie Mouse", even without the ears :)

  • Desserts

    For Dessert there was Minnie Mouse inspired polka-dotted vanilla cupcakes, Mickey Mouse inspired chocolate cupcakes. Of course each cupcake was servied with ice cream!

  • Activities / Games

    Most of the day the children bounced in the bounce house and ran around in the lawn playing dodge ball and kick ball with the oversized balls. The only activity I planned was to go along with our Mickey and Minnie's Flower and Garden Birthday Party theme. I personalized the names of each child ages 2 and above on red and pink pails. I filled the pails with dirt and used them as anchors for the helium balloons, when it was time to do our planting activity I gave each child their pail and they used the dirt to plant their choice of red or white flower in their terra cotta polka dotted painted pot. After they were done each child had a Mickey or Minnie magic towel to use in at the water table to clean up their hands. Each little one took their flower and towel home with them.

  • Party Favors

    Each child two years old and above received a small gift which was wrapped and placed at each child's place setting. In the gift box was a Mickey Mouse Vinylmation from Walt Disney World. They were pink, red or black and it was a surprise as to which color they received. Every child, including the babies received a pinwheel- Mickey for the boys and Minnie for the girls. The children under the age of two did not participate in the planting activity so they each received a gift bag which had a Mickey sippy cup and plate for the boys and Minnie sippy cup and plate for the girls. In addition, the lawn was polka dotted with oversized red, pink and black balls. The children under two years old each were able to choose a ball to take home too. Each adult received a favor too. The guys took home Mickey Mouse shaped rice crispie treats dipped in chocolate and the ladies took home Minnie inspired flowers that I made.

  • Best Moment

    My favorite moment of the whole day was watching my daughter absolutely LOVE eating her cake. We had to take it off of her! I can't believe my baby is one!

  • What People Ate

    Mickey Mouse, Minnie and their friends inspired our menu, such as Pluto's Hot Diggity Dogs, Pete's Pizza, Mickey's PB&J Sandwiches, Toodles Noodles, Minnie's Polka-Dotted Melon, Chip and Dale's Chips, and Minnie's Flower Pot Surprise (Dirt Cake).

  • What People Drank

    At Donald and Daisy's Drink Station we had punch, fruit juice, soda and water.

  • Most Touching Moment

    Our son, Gavin, was so excited for his baby sister's first birthday party that he carefully helped with the decor set up. He was intent on helping and he really was an awesome little helper!

  • Funniest Moment

    The funniest moment of the day had to be when almost every one of the Mickey inspired red and white polka dotted balloons escaped our tent before being tied down! Unfortunately the party ended up looking a bit more Minnie instead of Mickey and Minnie because of that moment, but it sure was funny thinking of my father and brother trying to catch them as the wind gust took them away!

    It's not that difficult. It just takes some time. All you do is get three syrofoam balls, ribbon and pins- loop the ribbons and pin them one by one onto the styrofoam balls. Once your done connect the styrofoam balls together with wooden dowels and use another wooden dowel to connect the Mickey/Minnie head to the styrofoam block base. The base should be snug in your bottom container. I used a terra cotta pot.

    Sorry it's not for sale. You'd probably be surprised to know that it was between $20- $30 dollars in materials.

    I followed a tutorial on line on how to make no sew fabric flowers. Basically you use a glue gun.

    Where did you get the signs?

    Amy Z wrote:

    Kim J, I made the signs, very easily. I used red, white and black cardstock. To make the flower I used two different sized scalloped edged punch. You can get them at any craft store. The stem was made out of ribbon and the leaves were made using a Mickey punch, also purchased at craft store. Once I punched the paper, I glued them all together. Hope that helps!
