Recently I gave a MAGICAL Minnie Mouse Birthday party for my grand daughter, Madison. She loves "Mouse"! There are so many ideas for a fabulous party, I am giving you a couple ideas, just to get your mind going in a creative direction!
A Minnie Mouse Table will set the theme for the party. I bought polka dot fabric on line at Onlinefabricstore and made my table clothes for two tables. I purchased 3" pink ribbon on line at Onlinefabricstore to add to the table scape, tying long tailed bows at the table edge and pulling the polka dot fabric into a drape.
Next is the fun part of designing the tablescape! On the adult table, I used 7 small vases of flowers, three candle sticks I have had for years and two crystal candle lanterns. My hand painted candle sticks added a little interest to the table, creating height...I like to make the tablescape interesting with different heights.
I have bought all my grandchildren these cute place settings to use when they visit Grandma and Grandpa. I originally found them at a club event. They are also available at Girly Twirly and Polka Dots and Moon Beams on line.
I bought each child a different theme, so cute, just look at little Coopers and sweet Olivia's place settings!! A couple of my Mom's loved the settings so much, they asked if they could take them home......OKAY! So, be prepared grandma, you might buy two!!
I sourced my cute Minnie Mouse napkin rings from a Scrappy Kat on Etsy. They work perfect with paper napkins, but are tight with a linen or cloth napkin. She has many other Minnie and Mickey Mouse items, including invitations, that are adorable!
For the Minnie Mouse dessert, I created a "Cupcake and ice cream sundae bar"!! It was a huge hit! I made delicious red velvet cupcakes and frosted with buttercream. I sourced the hand made Minnie ears and bows from Etsy Luli Sweet Shop and had her put a "2" on some of the ears, so sweet! My cupcake papers were in my pantry...woohoo! I love polka dots and picked up two packs of these Meri Meri cupcake liners a few years ago at Sur la Table. I have seen black and white polka dot papers at the Dollar Store, Michaels and on Amazon.
I made Salted Butter Caramel sauce, and Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce
both found on Sew Whats Cooking with Joan. Just click on the link. I had several different toppings that everyone loved picking and choosing! The cute little hand painted cups are easy to make or sourced on Etsy at Divine Glitters. I made the cute little wood ice cream spoons and put a little bow on each spoon!
I didn't catch a picture of the bar...darn! But, here is a picture of the straw as shown on Divine Glitters website. I did pink stripe straws and a bow on the mouse head...cute!
And did the Birthday girl and her cousins enjoy the party...well I think these pictures tell the story!
