Meeska Mooska Mickey (and Minnie) Mouse!

I'm taking a stroll down memory lane today.  It was last Spring when I began designing my first set of printable party supplies for my daughter's 2nd Birthday party.  Just like most parents, I was looking for ideas to make a special party for my Little Princess without busting the budget.  She absolutely loved Mickey Mouse Clubhouse at the time, so a Minnie/Mickey themed party seemed perfect.  

  

We've Got Ears, It's time for Cheers!  Join us at

 Little Princess' 2nd Birthday Party 


 Upon entering, guests were welcomed at the door with a printable Happy Birthday Sign.  I printed the sign on cardstock and attached the three pieces together with a piece of red polka dot ribbon.  Upon entering, guests were greeted with a set of Minnie or Mickey ears they could wear during the party.  I found a great template for making mouse ears courtesy of the Suburban Mom's blog here.  The ears took a bit of time to assemble (lots of hot glue required), but they were well worth the effort!  Not only were they more durable than the paper ones sold in stores, but they were cost-effective and guests loved taking them home as a party favor.


Pinterest had some wonderful ideas for coordinating Mickey and Minnie themed snacks for the treat table.  I kept it simple with chocolate Minnie cupcakes, chocolate dipped marshmallows, and Mickey themed Oreo cookies.  Mickey and Minnie food tent labels included Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed wording for the treats such as "Not-so-Minnie marshmallows", "Minnie Bow-Cupcakes", and "Mickey Mouse-ka-Cookies".

The treats were super easy to make and the kids (and adults) loved them!




Instructions for how to make the Mickey Oreo cookies were found here courtesy of blogger, Kathie Cooks.

As guests departed, they were given a treat bag filled with chocolate kisses.  The basket was decorated with a second printable sign that stated "Thanks for stopping by", a favorite quote line that Mickey says at the end of every Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show.



Even just a few printable party supplies added a special touch of detail to an already special day.  I'm already thinking about party ideas for Little Princess' next special event.

The Minnie Mouse Printable party supplies used in this party can be purchased here via my Etsy shop.  Mickey Mouse themed printable party supplies are also available on Etsy for purchase here.
