It's a Mickey & Minnie Celebration!

Howdy Folks! Hope all is well in cyber world this week!

So, today I bring to you a Mickey & Minnie themed birthday celebration!  This party was thrown for my 8 year old daughter and my 2 year old son. My son is a huge M-i-c-k-e-y fan and my daughter is a fan of all things girlie. So, naturally, she agreed to share her birthday party with her baby brother if it meant adding Minnie to the equation. :-)

Now, planning a party for both a girl and a boy can be tricky. Not only do you have to make the party appealing to a boy but you also have to make the same party appealing to a girl.  There can't be too many "girlie" things going on or too many "boyish" things either. You have to have the right balance for both.  So I decided to go with a color scheme that would be right for both a girl and a boy.

My choice you ask? Red, white, and blue!

Now, I know your thinking it might seem more like a 4th of July celebration than it would a kids party, but there are so many different shades of red and blue that that's not the case.  Trust me! :-)

So, for the blue, I decided to go with turquoise and for the red I decided to go with a deep, bright red.  I decided on adding a white polka-dot theme to the red to make it a little more girlie.  The color scheme of a party really sets the mood so picking the right color scheme is very important.

The rest was pretty easy and fell right into place. All I had to do was decorate everything with Mickey and Minnie, right?  But before that, first things first: The invitation

and these cute size cards

had to be wrapped up in this envelope so the guest knew when and where to arrive!

As for the party, here's how it all came together:

I squared off the main table by using polka-dot bulletin board boarders for an added flare!

Here are a few more up close pictures:

Here's the banner I made and boy did my hand hurt when I was done!

And, now a days, what's a party without a Dessert or Candy Bar?  So here's my rendition of one with the guests of honor, Mickey & Minnie, sitting front and center: :-)

Here are lolly-pops I made in the shape of Mickey's head. I made them in red, baby blue, and yellow to match the colors of the party.

And, as if children didn't need any more sugar to make them bounce off the walls, I filled a few of these decorated containers with M&M's, Oreos, and gummy worms to make them really giddy! (hehe)

That's were this jumper comes into play!

Finally, here's a few more pictures from the party.  

Guest were welcomed to sign the birthday book with their warm wishes.

And here are the birthday honorees!

I hope you enjoyed because I'm already thinking of next year's theme! (hehehe)

Until next week friends!
