Cibella choose her 2nd birthday party theme shortly after a trip to Disney World. She grew an attachment to Minnie Mouse, carrying her doll around and always wanting to wear her Minnie costume.
Her birthday is in September, so I began her invitations in July. I wanted something different but still geared towards all the kids that would be invited. That's when the idea came to me! In Disney World, they have mousketeer ears so I would make mousketeer invitations complete with a red polka dot bow!
Since Cibella would be wearing her Minnie costume, everything was red with white polka dots! All the partyware is pink to match the TV show so I opted for plain red and white napkins, plates, cups, etc.
I purchased terracotta pots at the craft store, and spray painted them red with white polka dots. I placed red and white carnations in the pots and had them on all the tables.
I couldn't find a Minnie pinata that I liked, so I purchased this one and put a bow on it. Unfortunately, the kids pulled the bow off before I got was able to snap a pictures.
Since the kids were all under the age of 3, I didn't have any structured games or activities. Instead they ran around, played with a giant bowling pin set, and other outdoor toys.
I had a beautiful inspiration picture that I found. My cake didn't turn out so good. It was humid and the fondant was sliding. I was so ready to throw the entire cake away and get a store bought one instead.
The best of our attempts to get a family picture.
