Minnie Mouse 2nd Birthday Party

My little baby turned 2! I can't believe how quickly these 2 years have flown by. It could be because I don't sleep much (thank you Lily!) or it could be how much fun these 2 kids are!

For Lily's 2nd birthday I wanted to do a Minnie Mouse party. Looking around online for Minnie stuff, I found tons of generic Minnie stuff or Minnie with hot pink and zebra print. Neither was the look I was going for. I decided to check out Pinterest and I got tons of great ideas!

I asked on Facebook if anyone could create me some printable stuff, my friend offered! She did a great job. I made tons of stuff for the decorations, I made Minnie and Mickey ears, I spent days on Etsy shopping for sweet treats for the party. Check out the end of this post for all the shopping details! Over the next week, I'll share all my DIYs.

Hope y'all have a great weekend, we are off to buy a new car! Have a great Easter everyone!!

This post is FULL of pictures!

For food we did a Hot Diggity Dog hot dog bar. We had tons of toppings {chili, cheese, ketchup, mustard, spicy mustard, dill relish and onions}.

For the favors a friend mentioned that Walgreens had Minnie and Mickey cups for $.99 but I wasn't able to find enough, so I ordered from Birthday Express. I found Minnie and Mickey bubbles and activity pads also at Walgreens and then bought small pack of crayons at a local party store. Total cost $2.68 for each one.

I asked my momma to make Lily a dress because I did not think I'd have time to make it plus who is better to ask than the person who taught me to sew! She did a great job and it was super cute and everyone loved it! However she wouldn't pose for me to take a picture (she is 2 after all!)

Of course a picture of Ethan just for fun!

  1. I, may or may not, be ripping off your complete party come December. I already bought Sydney's dress over a month ago. I was going to do it for Caleigh's third birthday but changed my mind. I am hoping for Minnie in December and then a princess and knights party in February. Shamefully, I am planning a parties that are at least eight months away.

    Love everything you did!
