Minnie Mouse First Birthday Party! Happy First Birthday Makayla Jo!

I started planning Makayla’s first birthday party pretty much on New Year’s Day. I always have to have something to look forward to, and of course this was a huge event. I’m not sure exactly how we decided on Minnie Mouse, but for some reason I was set on it. I was spending hours and hours on Pinterest and Etsy searching for wonderful ideas for a pink & black Minnie Mouse First Birthday Party.

Some of my absolute favorite details of her party were the custom accents.

The Minnie Mouse Birthday Banner, which I found here: I Share Printables

The ‘Makayla is One” Printable Banner, which I found here: Shanty-2-Chic.  I just printed it on Pink Cardstock that I purchased at Michael’s.

The Watermelon Sangria Recipe  from The Party Dress was a HUGE hit!

This is the drink dispenser I got from Amazon. It holds 1.5 gallons and it worked out perfectly for the Watermelon Sangria. I’m sure I will use it a lot in the future as well. Best of all, it is very affordable ! I N I T

I am definitely NOT a baker, but I did want to find cute cupcake wrappers to match the pink & black Minnie Mouse theme. I found these black & white dot cupcake wrappers on Amazon .

This Minnie Mouse Pillow Dress was made custom by Etsy Seller Pish Posh Fun. I ordered the 12 month size, and obviously it was WAY too big. Fail. 🙁
