Trying to decides Wildmans first birthday theme was simple. That boy loves Mickey Mouse, and so do I. I spent weeks on pinterest, and couldn’t figure out how people created such perfect images. Continuing to search I learned all about Cricut! Oh my! If you have never heard of Cricut, google it or youtube it. It is a crafters dream! I got lucky and scored an awesome deal on amazon and couldn’t wait until it came in the mail. So lets come inside Mickey Mouse ClubHouse for Wildmans first birthday!
For the table display I rented kids chairs and purchased a fold out table from Costco. The height is adjustable, so it was the perfect height for the kiddos! Having all little babies attend the party, I didn’t want to worry about them not reaching their food or falling out of chairs. I assembled the Mickey plates by simply gluing two black circles on the back of the plate. Layering it with red dessert plates and Mouse-Ka-tools. I created Mickey and Mickeys glove using Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge .
I wanted to buy a cake stand that was big enough for the cake, but also didn’t break the bank. I couldn’t find either so I wrapped a cardboard box using left over wrapping paper! It looks like a million bucks and it was free!
You can’t have a Mickey Mouse party without a Hot Diggity dog bar, can you? For all of the food labels I downloaded free Mickey Mouse fonts. Just search in google and tons of options should pop up.
We rented out the clubhouse on base, so I wanted to reassure people they were in the right place! Oh my gosh did I just make a Rhyme?! lol I just love this Clubhouse sign. I used my Cricut to cut out all of the shapes, using different color card stock paper. You can find card stock paper at almost any craft store. Joanns, Michaels craft store, Hobby Lobby and Walmart. Of course, if you are lucky and have a local scrapbook store-total score!
I love having food correspond with the party theme. Just to name off a few that I offered. Hot Diggity dogs, Red gooey fish, Daisy’s Veggie Garden, Goofy’s Grapes, Petes PB&J, Donalds cheese and Quackers, and Minnie’s Bow-Tie pasta. I wanted everything to be finger food since I had little kiddos as our guest.
Another great idea for the pb&j is using a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter. I found one on amazon just for a couple bucks!
Aren’t these goody bags just the cutest? I bought plain black paper bags, I believe I bought these at Hobby lobby in the party section. I cut out a red rectangle and two white circles for Mickey’s buttons. I also used my circuit to cut out multiple black circles for the ears. And finally, glued them in place! Super easy and you have cheap adorable Mickey goody bags!! Now they just need to be filled with annoying whistles and candy that will be sent home with the parents. lol jk
I absolutely had a blast creating Mickey’s gang and enjoying all of the yummy treats. You only turn one once right?? lol I look forward to many many more years celebrating my boys life! I have been truly blessed and they deserve a fun celebration!
