Sophia's 1st Birthday - Minnie Mouse Party

We celebrated Sophia's 1st Birthday a couple weeks ago. You might remember her pink and black baby shower or her newborn photos. Time flies doesn't it?

 I was very happy when her mama asked me to help with her Minnie Mouse theme. Minnie and I go way back. She has always been one of my favorite Disney characters. I mean, how could you not adore a mouse that loves polka dots and wears heels! Right??!!

Sophia's mama decided on a pink, hot pink and black color scheme. With the traditional polka dots pattern. She wanted a cute and special party for her daughter on a friendly budget. With the help of some very sweet friends and family I think she was able to give Sophia a 1st Birthday to remember. 

Sophia's sweets and treats table.

The cute and yummy Minnie Mouse Oreo pops, cake balls and cookies were homemade by Sophia's sweet aunt Samantha. Table also included Sophia kisses, marshmallow hearts (because after all she is a sweetHEART), Minnie and Mickey rings.

Minnie and balloon centerpieces for guest tables.

  Placed the treat bags for all the little guests in this adorable suitcase I found on clearance at Home Goods. Made the Minnie head with floral foam from the Dollar Tree. Wrapped it in crinkle paper, added a bow and the 1. It was easy peasy!
Tutus and Ears were also given to all the girls. Boys received Mickey hats (which I forgot to take a photo of...boo!) To give the tutus an extra special touch I added a little fabric Minnie head to each one. Here is my little mouse modeling the tutu and ears! 


 All the little Minnies enjoyed the face painting.

 Sophia's mom also found this fun activity to do with the kids on Pinterest

  A very special friend of the family (Anna) made the beautiful and delicious cake & cupcakes. 
It was so great to see Sophia having such a wonderful time! She loved hitting the adorable pinata her aunt Elaine picked out for her and truly enjoyed the cupcakes too...hehe! I LOVE this precious little Minnie and I am so blessed to be a part of her life. Each time I see her, she brings me such joy. She is so loving and sweet. Can't wait to celebrate her 2nd Birthday!!Toodles,Claudia

  1. Awww ... Everything turned out really cute! How amazing it is to watch little Sophia grow up (and each celebration seems to grow with her). The Dessert Table photo is my favorite (with the pool as a backdrop)... really pretty picture. Happy to see you posting again : )


  2. LOVE! Those cake pop stands are so cute! Great job as always amiga :)

  3. This is an amazing party my friend, I love the attention you always put in to detail. Love the treat bags, love the ears, and the tutu's. The dessert table is also amazing and the center pieces are so darn cute.

  4. Love it!! Great job as always!!

  5. Oh my these are all adorable! I was confused between Minnie and Hello Kitty but both are fine for a little girls party since they are pinkish. But seeing your helpful Minnie Mouse party ideas , I think I'm gonna suggest this to my friends!
    I will be exploring more maybe I could add them to my own compilation. thank you so much!!
