When Maggie was a couple of months away from being two, we requested her what sort of celebration she needed. Without hesitation, she stated “Mickey Mouse,” and caught to that plan endlessly extra. Then sooner or later she advised us it needs to be pink Mickey Mouse, and I acquired much more pumped. This woman’s love for all of the Disney buddies runs deep, and I used to be so excited to throw her a pink Mickey Mouse 2nd celebration. At first I used to be somewhat caught as a result of Mickey normally means the entire purple/yellow/black state of affairs, however I like how the pink got here collectively for our shindig. There’s not a lot I like extra as of late than pondering of inventive methods to have fun birthdays, and all of those items had been so enjoyable to place collectively.

A Pink Mickey Mouse 2nd Birthday Party
When I’m throwing events, I at all times attempt to use what I’ve first. We had a bunch of pink, peach, and gold tassels, together with some honeycombs from one other challenge. I had pink and white balloons readily available, in order that’s the place we began. The bulk of the decor was just about balloon installations, just like the one we have now a tutorial on proper right here. These are simply on a a lot smaller scale. We created balloon bunches on an archway in the home, outdoors on a play tent, and scattered round right here and there. We additionally blew up a couple of with helium to have them floating round for enjoyable.
On the desk, we used the honeycombs and a few tissue paper fringe and simply sprinkled them round on a desk runner that was a easy lower piece of cloth. I discovered these die-cut pink felt items within the form of the Disneyland fortress and positioned them round at random as properly.
I at all times beautify our little buffet space, and this acquired the balloon remedy too. I included our Lightbox, which I just about use at each celebration, and a photograph of Mags from our latest Disneyland journey. We additionally introduced again some Mickey suckers (most cost-effective sweets within the park!) from Disneyland handy out as favors to take house.
I created these oversize picture strips, utilizing images that I took of Maggie in her mouse ears. We’ll have a full tutorial approaching that quickly!
We needed to have small bites with a brunchy vibe, to make issues tremendous easy to serve. So we made mini puff-pastry quiches (we improvised the recipe but it surely’s principally like this one), little yogurt parfaits, Mickey-shaped sandwiches (utilizing a Mickey cookie cutter), and fruits & veggies. (My favourite half was the little gold spoons that we caught within the parfaits!) We additionally discovered Mickey-shaped chips that had been an enormous hit! For dessert, Maggie requested for donuts moderately than cake, so we did a wall of donuts and somewhat donut tower for Maggie to blow out her candles. Full tutorial on the donut wall is on the way in which.
I at all times prefer to have somewhat artful exercise and a extra outside, play-based exercise at a children’ celebration. I really feel like then there’s one thing for everybody. So for the craft exercise, we created foam Mickey ears for everybody, and set out a bunch of stickers in order that they may beautify their ears. Not all the youngsters made ears, however the ones who did had been actually into it. Another submit is on the way in which with a tutorial for making the ears!
Outside, we set out somewhat a-frame tent, and the massive hit of the celebration: a ball pit. We used a Minnidip pool and a bunch of ball pit balls to create a enjoyable little pit for the youngsters to leap out and in of. They liked it! The children and the dads ended up outdoors, having ball battles and bouncing the massive seashore balls everywhere. It was hilarious to look at, and offered heaps and many play time. The celebration ended at naptime, and as quickly as my children wakened they needed to return out and play within the ball pit some extra, in order that’s how we spent the afternoon! We have one other submit coming with heaps extra particulars on how we deliberate the ball pit.
We had such a beautiful day, and I can’t let you know how bittersweet it’s to already be celebrating Maggie’s second birthday. Kind of unreal. But it was so wonderful to see her simply cruising across the celebration along with her family and friends, doing her factor like a giant child. Sigh.
