Mickey-Minnie Party

Chloe asked for a Mickey Party for her Birthday this year. It was lots of fun to put together and I realized there is so much creativity that comes out of me in planning parties. I enjoyed doing all the little things. Here are the elements and the final product. I must say taking pictures during a Birthday party is not easy. I also switched lenses to make things easier for Brent to take pictures and I wish I had left my fancy 50mm lens on. I just like it so much better.

Here were the invitations:A girl version and a boy version. For the envelopes I traced an outline of Mickey and put the name and address inside. I didn't get a picture of those.

Here is a picture of the party table. Food was Cupcakes, Strawberries, Carrot Chips, Cheese, Hummus, Crackers, and Cocoa Rice Crispy treats cut out with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter.
Cupcakes from Sam's toppers made by me. I designed circles for invites, cupcakes, etc...
Best $13.00 I have spent. They did a great job, people loved them and I got to decorate.
Ruffled Streamers. So easy. Tutorial here.
Party favors: Balls from Dollar Tree.
My favorite, the centerpiece. Easy! Got the idea here, put my own spin on it.

Here are some of my other favorite pictures from the party. It was a whirlwind with mostly little boys under 6 as guests. Chloe had a great time and we loved having people in our home.
I like this picture. My mom, sister, her youngest and Chloe and I.
