A huge THANK YOU to #DisneySide @Home Celebrations for an awesome box of party supplies for our #DisneySide party! It just so happened to come at just the right time to celebrate our little boy's second birthday!
We went with a Mickey Mouse theme and Auntie Rachel made the great cake you see to your left. It's such a cool cake and the birthday boy LOVED it, with exclamations of "Wow!!!" when he saw it.
We invited family and friends and had quite the crowd to celebrate little Tom's birth two years ago (why does it seem like it was only a few weeks ago???).
I decided to DIY some Mickey Mouse ears for guests to wear, so I looked up a few tutorials and then put my own spin on them. Packs of 4 black headbands for $1 each at Dollar Tree, a printable Mickey Mouse ear template from The Suburban Mom, a sheet of black poster board and a hot glue gun. I had assistance from my big kid and my mom in cutting out the ears. They were just so easy to make and everyone loved them!
Party Food!! We went with a "Hot Dog Hot Dog Hot Diggity Dog" bar and a "Make-Your-Own-Trail-Mix" bar to go along with the cake. Our trail mix bar included mini marshmallows, Goldfish, pretzels, Cheese-Its, yogurt covered raisins, sour cream & onion crackers, chocolate covered peanuts, banana chips, M&Ms, ginger snap cookies, Craisins, raisins and ranch sunflower seeds. We used the baking cups as trail mix cups.
We also had Grandma Cindy make some delicious sugar cookies with the Disney cookie cutters from our party pack, which our guests got to frost and decorate themselves!
Activities included coloring, lots of snacking, playing with a sea of balloons and general running around, visiting and awesome fun.
I even managed to get the Mickey Mouse hat on Tom's head for a few moments, just for this photo. Aunty Rachel's friend, Calea, made it for him, especially for his party!
Tom wore the great t-shirt his Grandma Bev made for his special day, and he very much loved ripping open all his wonderful gifts, including a hand-made train from his Grandpa Bill!!
We are so incredibly blessed to have this little man in our lives and had such a great time throwing this party for him. It is most definitely one for the memory books!!
