Mickey Birthday Party

I cannot believe my sweet little baby is TWO!!!  Someone stop the clock.  Please.

For my little one's big day, there was no question as to what the theme would be...he is completely obsessed with all things Mickey (...and Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Pete- you get the idea!).  So the planning for the MICKEY BIRTHDAY began.  I definitely wanted to keep this party on a budget and was so proud to say that most items were handmade by yours truly! 

The obvious color scheme throughout the party was black, red and yellow. 

The invitation

seriously- how cute is he?  (thank you to My Mimi Made It for the adorable shirt!)

Sweets Table
The cake was made by my amazing friends at 2 Moms and a Cake

I wanted the kids to all have their own Mickey Ears, but I couldn't find any that I liked at a good price, so I improvised!  I grabbed some tiara party head bands from The Dollar Store and used the base to make my own. 
Hand painted cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby to mimic the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse gang.  My favorite part of this was when I finished my little one recognized who they were without me prompting me- proud moment for me! 

Drink Station
I designed and printed the water bottle labels, and of course - we HAD to have paper straws, they are a must these days.

I was so excited to find bowls (4 for $1) at The Dollar Tree.  I cut out Mickey Icons from vinyl and put them around the entire bowl.  Filled the bowl with goodies (bubbles, play dough, stickers, fruit snacks, candy) and finished it off with a homemade thank you tag.
