My youngest son has recently become a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan. We have no less than 50 episodes saved to our DVR and yes I taught him how to use it so I don’t have to stop what I’m doing every 25 minutes. No I’m not the parent that limits my kids TV time. They play outside plenty and their rooms plenty so I don’t feel I need to limit it. I have on occasion but mostly they do manage their own TV time well. Ok..back to MMC.
For his birthday he wanted a MMC party. I was happy because I knew that I could make just about everything for the party. Since we’re in a new state with rain possibilities all the time and I’m not use to it yet we were having a hard time finding a location for a party. There isn’t much here that’s indoors which is totally weird to me. I wanted to have it at a local farm and if I hadn’t waited so long (he has a labor day birthday–gotta plan a later party) for his party we could have but the rain came the day of his party so i’m really glad we didn’t do the farm. I decided to go with the ole Chuck E Cheese birthday party. Which it turned out GREAT so I can’t complain!
Now onto the birthday party! One month before the party I was trying to decide between 2 different types of invitations. I had created a 4×6 invitation but decided to go with a crafty one. The yellow insert with all the party details comes out of the pocket. I used my Silhouette Cameo for all of it. I was so glad that I had it!! I seriously made everything for the party with it!
Here’s the banner!
The good bags! I’m not big on goody bags so I usually make them sweet and simple. I made it from a popcorn template and added ribbon. Each goody bag had cheese it’s, mini fruit rollup, mini play-doh, and mini bubbles.
I had to add a mini Mickey Mouse head to each bubble bottle!
Mickey Mouse head cake pops!!!! I made the cake pops like normal and added mini oreo’s for the ears. I attached the ears with chocolate first and let that dry. Then I dipped the entire pop into the chocolate (well I use almond bark).
Because I wanted some really good looking cake pops I made a few regular.
I had leftover chocolate so I made mini Mickey Mouse heads as a treat to just have on the table…I came back with almost all of them…ah well.
Here is my bucket of bags! I made the giant Mickey head and used the saying at the end of the show “Thanks for Stopping By”.
The cupcakes!!! Yup, I made them. Even made cupcake toppers!! I loved them and so did everyone else.
My little guy loved his party. I was glad it was over…..a month of party planning and I was sick of hearing about it, lol!! But it was definitely fun!
Here’s our post party coma coming on.
