Red Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

We had the best time planning this red Minnie Mouse birthday party for Ladybug.  I had given her a choice between a purple party, polka dot party, and Minnie…I was leaning towards polka dots but she definitely made the perfect choice for both of us!

One of my favorite finds were these two-bite sized Minnie Mouse cookies from 3CSC on Etsy.  They were beautiful and delicious!

I saw this marshmallow treat on pinterest and thought it would be fun to make and I was pleasantly surprised when they were quite tastey.  It's just large marshmallows, melted chocolate and m&m's.

My favorite dip served in a Minnie Mouse mug.

The food was easy: homemade chicken salad sandwiches, homemade pimento cheese sandwiches, pb&j sandwiches for the girls, chips, dip and fruit.

I mixed up a bag of nonpareils, m&m's, and disney shaped chocolate covered pretzels and invented this little treat.  I should have sprung for the cute little candy cups, but used leftover cupcake wrappers instead.

You have to have red punch at any Minnie Mouse party.

I wish this picture looked better, those cupcake wrapper garlands turned out super cute!  

My sweet mother helped me make this crepe paper backdrop.

We had a bubble table set up as an ice breaker for the girls.

One of the games we played was Pin the Bow on Minnie….complete with a blindfold and spinning around.  (Everyone was a winner.)

The party favors were cute little mouse shaped bathroom soaps that I ordered from Target.  Love these! They were placed in cellophane bags and tied with a ribbon.  I designed the little tag on my computer and used a few Stampin'Up! punches.  It says, "Toodles.  Thank you for coming to my party."
