We decided to have Whitlee’s birthday party on December 5th so that more family could be there. Originally I had plans to do a pink and gold birthday, but since she has decided she’s pretty much obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, I changed my mind. We decided to go with a red, black, and gold theme instead and it turned out really cute if I do say so myself! And this ham LOVED all of the attention, of course.
I started with her invitations. I got them through an Etsy shop – One Five Designs, who created them and printed them. Their customer service was so great and the quality of the invitations was perfect! (address and phone number is blacked out)
We finally got her highchair repainted and I made the banner for above her cake table and the banner for her highchair.
We went with red velvet cupcakes to compliment her smashcake. Thank you, Pinterest! I was so nervous they wouldn’t turn out very well making me a pinterest fail, but I was super proud of them. The night before when I was adding the “ears” and the bows, my homemade cream cheese icing was a little soft and my ears kept moving. Thankfully overnight in the refrigerator, they hardened up.
She wasn’t really all that into her cake, but I’m a little relieved since that meant no major sugar crash later.
We got her a bounce house since there were a lot of bigger kids there, and Miss Priss wanted to be right in the middle of them. She got knocked down and kicked and bounced around more times that I even care to think about, but never cried. She loved the kids!
She got SO many presents. Seriously. I didn’t even know there were that many different Mickey Mouse / Minnie Mouse toys, but she got a ton of them and not one the same. And clearly by the sugars given to baby Minnie, she loves them.
It ended up being a little colder than I expected but thankfully we had a really great turn out and we’re so thankful for everyone that was able to make it out. But – this momma is relieved its over!
