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 ‘M’ is for Makayla Pink Sign, is the Circles Initial Free Printable Nursery Artwork which I found here: On To Baby
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 !
Minnie Mouse Oreo Cookie Cake Pops! Recipe HERE.
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 .
The awesome cupcake stand is also a good find from Amazon!
The amazing cake made by by good friend Nicole. Another post coming soon with her contact information!
Shades of Pink M&Ms I purchased on clearance after Valentine’s Day!
The food place cards were also a free printable from On To Baby.
I designed & printed the custom Minnie Mouse Water Bottle Labels. If you’re interested, check out Jennifer Alison Designs.
Another Free Minnie Mouse Celebrate Printable Sign I found at Catch My Party.
A photo banner that displayed all of Makayla’s Monthly Photos.
The tutu was made also by my friend Nicole – details to follow.
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. 🙁
So exhausted from partying she almost fell asleep face first in her cupcake!
Yay, I’m One!
Happy First Birthday, sweet baby girl. Your party was perfect. Thanks to all of our friends & family who celebrated with us!
