Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

To view items from this party or request an item visit my Welcoming Sentiments Etsy shop.

Another year has come and gone and JP is now 2.  Everyone told me it would go fast and I've noticed all along but it doesn't help slow it down at all!  That's why I love that I can be home with him so I can soak up all of these fun moments.

We have started to watch a little TV.  Sometimes I just need to get dinner cooked or something done and need his attention elsewhere.  It's life, and we shouldn't feel guilty about doing it a little.  I say that but still have that 'mom guilt' that I'm not paying attention to him.  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of his favorites.  Mickey Mouse was his first unprompted 2 word phrase and Mickey Mouse House was his first unprompted 3 word phrase.  That only meant that we needed a Mickey Mouse birthday party.  This year I did do most everything for the party myself so I was happy about that.  We kept it small this year and once again managed to forget to get us in pictures.  I think it was our pictures for our Christmas cards last year that was the last picture of the 3 of us.

All of my printables were designed in my Creative Memories Storybook Creator software.  I purchased a Disney paper pack and this software is a breeze!

Come Inside Its Fun Inside was cut with my fabulous Sizzix Eclips and eCal software.  Mickey is popular so I was able to find free SVG files and fonts.

The only thing I did not make is the banner.  I just ran out of time so I found the perfect colors and patterns in a printable from Fay Town Creations on Etsy.  

The centerpieces were done with the same Mickey SVG on my Eclips.

The cake was from the wonderful Creative Cakes.  They never disappoint!

I tried to come up with food for each character and was actually able to do that!  Not pictured are Toodles Noodles which was a pasta salad and the Professor's Potato Salad.  Those didn't come out until dinner.

Chip & Dales chips and dip

Daisy's garden veggies

Donald's cheese & quackers

Minnie's fruit kabobs

Pluto Punch (aka lemonade)

Pete's Pretzels (spelled wrong...ha!)
I love making these pretzels.  They are so easy to customize colors for the party plus the sweet and salty combo is a winner.

We've got ears say cheers

Another sweet treat as a favor, chocolate dipped Oreo's.  Half dipped in red with 2 white baking pearls.  Please enjoy some clubhouse treats for making my party extra sweet.  Thanks for coming!

Growing my Etsy shop

I will slowly be adding items to my shop and will likely focus on downloadable printables.  I love crafting and hand making items for parties and things like that but I want time for that to be my own hobby and not having the only time I do it to be for 'work'.

JP has started pre-school already, I can't believe it!  It gives me a little time each day to get something done in peace.  It's just like when he used to nap but I don't have to stay home!  That may sound like I'm thrilled he's in school and part of me is.  He is so excited each day to go and comes out with a big smile saying he had fun at school today.  That makes me happy.  The first day was not good for me.  I held it together until I got back in the truck but then I cried.  Luckily I had scheduled a meeting that first day to keep my mind off of it so time passed and we were all good.  Now that I know he's happy I can be a little more excited to have some time back ;)

Monkey 1st Birthday

This post is very late but as my multitasking mind takes over I am now on my 3rd different thing that I'm doing on the computer besides what I sat down to do.

When planning his birthday party and theme I went with a general monkey theme.  We don't watch a lot of TV and really it's hard to tell what a 1 year old in really 'into'.  My cousin Beth with Beth Kruse Custom Creations designed my party printables.  I normally do this kind of thing on my own but there were just too many things going on in our lives at the time for me to add 1 more thing to my plate.  She has fabulous parties so I knew I was outsourcing to someone great!
