Hi there! I have been so excited with all the questions and emails I’ve gotten over the Minnie Mouse themed birthday party I did for little Bree’s 2nd birthday! So today, I want to share all the details with you and maybe give you some inspiration for your next little girl birthday party! I’ll tell you how I made it all, but if you have more questions or would be interested in having some of the items custom made for your girl’s party, just let me know! :)
If you remember, I made her invitations a few weeks ago and that set the theme for the big day!
I found some awesome free Minnie Mouse printables from CatchMyParty.com. I used the water bottle labels and the birthday banners for the party.
I made drink tags for the table using some wooden labels from Michael’s craft store and my letter stamps. Just stamp the tags and tie them on with twine.
Can’t forget the sweet kisses from Bree!
Despite the rainy weather all morning, it managed to clear off just in time for the party. I set up a small food table outside on the patio. Here is one of the banners I got from the free printables. And despite all my efforts to hang it, that little Minnie Mouse Wreath on the table was made by yours truly. I didn’t get very good pictures of it at the party, but look for some instructions soon with close-ups on the blog. :)
I made rice krispie treats and cut them out with the Disney’s “Mickey/Minnie Mouse” Sandwich Metal Cutter I found on Amazon.com. I dipped the ears in melted semi-sweet chocolate chips.
I also whipped up a batch of ‘pigs in a blanket’ … everyone’s favorite snack!
All of the food tags were made using my printer with some Disney fonts I downloaded for free. I cut out the cards and attached the ribbon and Minnie Mouse Die Cuts that I ordered here with my favorite little glue dots.
I used my sandwich cutter again, made homemade chicken salad and pimento cheese sandwiches … “Mickey’s Clubhouse Sandwiches” that is. ;)
We had Daisy’s Garden Veggies and ranch dip of course.
Inside, were all the cupcakes and little Bree’s personal cake. I made both vanilla and red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese buttercream icing.
You can find out more about the DIY Cake Stands I made here. To decorate the cupcakes, I used pink pearl nonpareils and mini-oreos for the ears.
I made the Minnie Mouse ears on the shelf from a styrofoam ball that I cut in half and spray painted black. I used my large circle punch and black paper to punch out the ears and attached them to the styrofoam. Once I added the pink bow, my little girl instantly squeeled, “It’s MINNIE Momma!” :) I’m pretty sure I did another happy dance around the room.
I made another one of these frames like I did for her first birthday party. It’s a great way to keep up with all her favorite things from year to year! If you want to get some of these fonts that I used in her party, check out the links here.

And here are just a few more pics from her big day!

Life is good when there’s cake involved! :)
Hope you enjoyed the pictures from Bree’s 2nd Birthday! It was so much fun putting it all together and even better watching her enjoy it all!
Who else is planning a Minnie Mouse Birthday party??
