Minnie Mouse First Birthday!

on September 15, 2012

We just had E’s first birthday!

(Where did the time go?!)

Here are a few pictures of our Minnie Mouse extravaganza…

Here is our cupcake table!

We’ve got ears, say CHEERS! Craft table for the kids.

Mmm. Cake!

We had a great time at her party and a great time planning. Here are a few details for those wanting to know.

Cake Table:
We made 4 dozen cupcakes (vanilla and chocolate), iced in red, and then added oreo ears and a fondant bow. The smash cake was made in a small glass bowl. It has a fondant bow and chocolate dipped oatmeal cookies for ears. We also made a collage of all her monthly pictures.

E’s Bowtique:
I made felt bows and bow ties earlier this week. My mother-in-law used the Cricut cutter at work to make the Mickey shape. We hole punched at the top for bows and at the bottom for bow ties. The sign says, “E’s Bowtique. Please take an E custom creation. Bows for girls and bow ties for boys.”


Craft Table:
I used a party hat template to make all the hats. We glued black circles on for ears. We hole punched and tied ribbon in each side. I got various craft supplies at the dollar store for the kids to use on their ears. We also printed out color pages from the Disney Jr. site. The sign says, “We’ve got ears say CHEERS! Please help your little Mouseketeer make a custom set of ears.”

It was so much fun. I can’t believe my baby girl is already a year old!

A few bonus pictures from my phone:

  1. I was so excited to see how the party turned out!!! Everything is so great!! You did an amazing job!!

    • Thanks. We had a lot of fun. All the little girls loved the craft table and decorating their hats. I almost felt bad for doing cupcakes for her party instead of a big cake like I did for K’s… But then we spent a couple hours putting hats together and it passed.

  2. Wow, you went all out with theme! Cool.

  3. Wow! nice party and nice party theme! 🙂 Love the pictures! 🙂

    • Thank you! We had fun. It was surprisingly difficult to find anything Minnie in red. It is all pink now. Nothing against pink, but we wanted the classic red, black, yellow, and white. We ended up making it all.
