Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

Hello friends!!!!!  Soooooo my daughter turned 4 on the 27th of August!  She had a Minnie Mouse theme birthday party....and boy it was a blast!!  Here are some pics.

These were her invites!  I made them using Publisher and printed them at WalMart!  Super easy and budget friendly!


I made her tutu and her shirt! Go me (this is actually the third tutu I have made but the first time making a shirt.  I just used a shirt she already had and I already had some of the tulle and I purchased the rest for about $3 from someone selling their stash!  Lol I WILL always find a way to save.

The setup!  (her fav color is blue)  The banner was made with my cricut mini and the adjustable marker holder.  I tied it together with some sparkly tulle.  I do now own any type of Disney cartridge.  I made the everything using mostly basic shapes.

The curtains are just plastic table cloths.... 97 cents at Walmart!  They are also cut in half!

Minnie and Mickey ears for the kids to wear and it was part of their party favor!

The plate took the place of a guestbook....her guests signed it as they left the party!  I used vinyl for the Minnie, bow, name, and number.  The guests signed the plate using a ceramic marker.

Originally the adults were going to play a "guess how many gumballs game" but we never got around to it!  Ooops!!!!  I made this so she would have something to keep after the party!


The cake!  Totally made by my friend and me!!!  Oh and it was a yummy strawberry cake!!!  



Cupcakes and cake pops!  We also had dipped marshmallows!  Favor bags in the back!  The blue bags are the prizes for the games.

Food Table

I didnt get a pic before all of the food was gone!  Lol I typically have a photographer....but she moved away!!  So I was on my own!! :(


We played "Pin the Bow on Minnie"  I made this using foam board, and glitter mod podge!

Golf

Musical Minnie (Musical Squares) I played music from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

and the Pinata!!

Well guess I should show you just how much she's loved!!


She got this on her actual birthday!!  She LOVES trains!!!

It was such a fun party, everyone enjoyed themselves, and most importantly my daughter had a blast!  

Now I am planning my soon to be 7 yr olds Candy Land party!!  So stay tuned!!

Until next time...
