All About Mickey

We got to put together a Mickey Mouse Birthday Party for a two year old and let’s just say that the possibilities are truly endless with Mickey Mouse.  There were so many ideas to choose from and one cuter than the next.  Firstly, we went with the traditional theme colors of black, red and yellow.    
The invitation consisted of Mickey Mouse’s head as the enclosure and the invite in a circular shape.  The design on the invitation was simple since the enclosure was the real attention grabber and we didn’t want too much design work to drown out the picture of Antonio.  This was placed in a beautiful shimmer gold envelope with personalized address labels as well. 
The banner featured a Happy Birthday sign in two clouds with the Disney font followed by the child’s name in Mickey Mouse ears with the Mickey Mouse font.  A red backdrop was our canvas and we added yellow streamers, balloons and cute foil Mickey Mouse decorations we found on Amazon.  
Our table was laid out to feature a picture of the birthday boy in the center along a black runner.  Snacks included spinach artichoke dip with Mickey Mouse bread silhouettes made from cookie cutters.  There were also mini pizzas and baked potato bites that were all dressed with small monograms on toothpicks to tie in the theme.  
Everything had a food sign specially personalized with Mickey ears. 
Desserts included Oreo cookies made into the shape of Mickey Mouse as well as a chocolate cake dressed with figurines and a personalized mini cake banner for the special boy.  A second cake was made in the shape of Mickey Mouse as well and was the perfect ending to a classic yet detailed party.  There were also chocolate cupcakes with Nutella frosting …..

A fruit platter was an easy task and made extra special by simply cutting watermelon into Mickey Mouse shapes.  
Party favors consisted of red chocolate covered hazelnut balls in mini plastic cups turned upside down and wrapped in cellophane and ribbon, and of course with another personalized monogram.  
A second party favor was a transparent, plastic favor box stuffed with candies.  Since the box was clear, we put red with white polka dots tissue paper to tie in the theme colors.  The outside was decorated with another monogram and ribbon.  The best things about these boxes is that they are clear and you really can do anything you want with them and they are big enough to put in any type of favor.   You can purchase these at www.favorsandfixings.com along with your other party supplies.  
One of our guests’ favorite details was the “I AM 2” banner placed along the high chair which was great for cake pictures.  

We also designed personal napkin rings to add a touch of elegance to the table setting.

One unique thing that we did was design a poster where all the guests had to write one word to describe the birthday boy.  This made for a great activity as well as a special keepsake for the birthday boy.  Once the festivities are over, the parents are going to put all of the Mickey Mouse ears that were written on and include it in the baby’s birthday album to read when he is older.  We love planning parties but it’s icing on the cake when you can keep those memories forever!

Happy Birthday Antonio!  We hope you had a blast with Mickey!
