When it comes to birthday party planning I love to think of fun creative ways to celebrate. It’s hard to believe that my youngest turned two a few months ago. Parker loves all things Mickey so I decided why not throw a Mickey Mouse 2nd birthday party! We generally keep it small by just inviting family and a few friends. As soon as I figured out the theme, I was on it to find invites. Below is the invitation I sent out found on Etsy.
Since his birthday is in August, I decided to do a ice-cream cake because that’s what I still get on EVERY SINGLE BIRTHDAY and wanted to continue the tradition. I get one from Dairy Queen that has the fudge and crunch center filling. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to for your little one’s next summer party! It’s SO yummy and they can even do a screen print on the cake. You just email them the jpg image of whatever you want.
I found his Mickey Mouse shirt at Old Navy and knew he’d love wearing it on his special day.
I kept the decor super simple, but thought it would be fun to add some small details that related back to the show itself.
I dipped the pretzel sticks in vanilla almond bark and added some colorful sprinkles!
Adult beverages are a must at these types of parties. After all thats why they drag themselves to these WILD events (haha).
I had a friend make these adorable sugar cookies.
I wrapped the silverware and called them “Mouskatools.” I found the plates and napkins at Party City. Here are some similar ones.
This was the sign I made when you first walked through the door!
I love fresh flowers at any party! I bought red roses and white hydrangeas and placed them in these cute little mason jars. I also added a polka dot table runner with some mickey themed confetti to complete the look!
Hope this gives you some inspiration to plan a super easy Mickey themed birthday party!
