I can’t belive my sweet baby girl turned one! My goodness, this first year just flew by so quick and before I knew it I was planning a 1st birthday party. There was no doubt that the party would be Minnie Mouse, Tilly loves watching Mickey’s Clubhouse and loves to dance to the Hot Dog Song! So Minnie Mouse it was…Hot pink, polka dots, zebra print & cupcake Minnie Mouse! <squeal> Yay!
I absolutely adore how the Birthday Banner turned out! Happy Birthday Tilly!
Shiny, shear pink fabric was laid overtop of a white table cloth. Boxes wrapped with zebra wrapping paper were placed under the tablecloth to create height for the serving dishes. I decorated the table with candle cupcakes, Mickey Mouse serving dishes, flowers and tissue paper poms.
To create the centerpiece, I spray painted 3 foam balls black and secured them with hot glue & wooden dowels in a hot pink bucket. Flowers & spray pearls were used in the base to hide the foam and hot pink and white polka dot ribbon was wrapped around the dowel and also used to make a bow for Minnie.
Another beautiful and yummy cake from www.cakesbymichelle.net. The cake we chose was a white cake with buttercream frosting. Cupcakes dressed in zebra wrappers with pink frosting and sprinkles were also served, but this beauty was just for Tilly to eat. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good cake smashing photos because Miss. Priss didn’t like the frosting all over her hands, so she wasn’t really that into eating the cake with all the mess!
The favor table held yummy treats for the party guests to take home. My favorite was the chocolate covered Minnie Oreo pops. I used regular and mini Oreos to create a mouse head, inserted a stick and dipped in chocolate. The pink bows were created with heart-shaped sprinkles. We also served cotton candy in black and white polka dot cones. These were super quick to make by folding cardstock into a cone shape and hot gluing it together. So easy and such a cute way to serve treats!
Each little Minnie or Mickey got their own pair of felt mouse ears. This project was created by using dollar store headbands (5 for $1!), cardboard, ribbon and black felt. First you wrap the felt around the headband. Cut cardboard circles for your ears & cut felt circles just a tad bigger than your cardboard circles. Glue the felt on the cardboard and then glue around headband. For the girls, tie a cute bow and glue in the middle. They loved it, Tilly tries to put hers (they end up being a sideways hat!) on and gets a kick outta me when I put my Minnie ears on!
To cover the table I used a hot pink and white polka dot table cloth and placed some Mickey Mouse head silhouettes on the table. There was an extra tissue paper pom that ended up on the table as well as fresh flowers and apocothary jars filled with pink frosted animal crackers and pink wrapped truffles.
For the Birthday’s girl’s high chair, I tied little tissue paper pom poms and Minnie Mouse silhouettes on a ribbon and tied it around the high chair tray. The backdrop is a piece of white netting with a tulle & ribbon bow holding in the center. A special seat just for the birthday princess!
The Birthday girl was so busy all night, so this was probably the best picure I was able to get of her rockin’ outfit! The party was a hit, Tilly loved seeing Minnie Mouse all over the place and adored all the hanging streamers and balloons.
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl, Tilly! Love you! xoxo
