Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

What a weekend we had! My little one turned two on Saturday and we had a small Minnie Mouse themed birthday party and it was a hit! I have to give Kristin credit from Hunted Interior who had some fabulous ideas and yes, I copied her...alot, lol.

My invitations I made with the computer and my Cricut. I made the bows with ribbon and a hot glue gun.




















My mom made the cupcakes and they were delicious! The chocolate cupcakes had a cream filling, topped with homemade cream cheese icing and Oreos. We also had homemade red velvet cupcakes topped with the same cream cheese icing, mini Oreos, and a Fruit Roll-Up bow. I made the bows =)




Simple Mason jars filled with utensils.



I bought the Mouse ears headbands but added the bows on.


The banner I made below I actually found somewhere online and can NOT remember where for the life of me but I used it as inspiration and made one in red and black instead of the typical pink and black. If anyone recognizes my inspiration, please let me know and I'll add it in =)



And this CAR was the funnest craft my husband and I have ever worked on! More on it soon and it was also inspired by the car on Kristin's blog (Hunted Interior blog). Update: to see car tutorial, head on over here.




And there's our princess =)

  2. Such a fun birthday! Everything is so cute, but that minnie mouse car is one of the cutest things I've seen. We have this old coupe and you've got me thinking of great makeover ideas for it. I'd never thought of that before. I would love it if you would stop by and share at Lines Across. I hope to see you soon,

  10. Im doing a 3rd birthday party for my daughter reagan. I too like the red 7 white better than pink. They do not sell the party decor in those colors though. So I was wondering how did you make that banner & how did you find the Disney font to do it with? Thank you & I loved all your idea's..I too have mason jar's sitting under my sink in their original packaging lol..so good to know i can use those too ;0).

    1. Hi there, Rhiannon! The banner I actually found online. I think on Pinterest. They had it on pink and black but I just changed the pink to red on Photoshop =/ Don't know if I should have done that but I was desperate, lol. The Disney font I found at dafont.com. It's called Waltograph.

    1. Hey there, Alex, for the black I used Rustoleum's Universal in black. It has a primer in it and can be sprayed on any kind of surface. The red I used Rustoleum spray paint for plastic. It's been nearly 6 months and the paint has held up very well.
