Kensleys FIRST "Minnie" Birthday!! {decor}

My Princess is ONE!
My girl is a Mickey/Minnie freak! 
So naturally, Minnie was the theme for her birthday!

My lot in my little mom life is to have cute birthday with doing anything too character-y.
The day I go into party city & get a charcter birthday theme pack, I will cry {even tho I know its lingering in my pre teen future}

One of the biggest misconceptions of; if you will, a "pintrest-y party" is that they are really pricey. & that is just so not true. By making everything while, stressful & time consuming is so much cheaper.
Each party the most money I spend is on the cake & food, which is as it should be :)
Minnie Mouse Birthday

Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake
Oh this cake couldnt have been more perfect!
We go to the same gal as always & she always blows us away!
When I took the cake out of the box to put it on the stand {it was deilvered the night before}
the humitdy from the box mad the cake bubble & the button was hanging off, I almost cried.
we were able to make it look better, but this photo I photoshoped the right button in so it looked better :)

These little center pieces are just three syrofoam balls I painted black, put together by tooth picks. I got a pack of the small bows from Hobby Lobby for .99 & glued them to a tooth pick.
The plastic pot is from the $1 aisle at Target.

The jars, are just Dollar Store Minnie figurines spray painted red, hot glued to the tops of the jars!

The favor bags were plain red.
I cut out the mouse ears & bows from scrapbook paper, & used garage sale stickeres as the dots!

It was the best party!
We were so happy to celebrate our princess!
Happy Birthday Kensley!


  1. I'm right there with you! I've never been crafty, but since I had my son, I've been desperately learning the ropes. We're doing a Curious George theme for his 2nd birthday and I'm making everything myself, which is why I've started already and the party isn't until the very end of June. It's already infinitely cheaper!

  2. This is absolutely adorable! Everything from her dress and Minnie Ears to the decor. And that cake! My son loves Mickey too and I wanted to do a Mickey theme for his 2nd birthday although there won't be many invited guests. I'm not a very good do-it-yourself'er but this is so cute!

  3. Oh my these are all adorable! I was confused between Minnie and Hello Kitty but both are fine for a little girls party since they are pinkish. But seeing your helpful Minnie Mouse birthday party ideas , I think I'm gonna suggest this to my friends!
    I will be exploring more maybe I could add them to my own compilation. thank you so much!!
