A Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

As you know, my daughter just turned 2. We had her party this weekend and I chose a Minnie Mouse theme. I let my kids each pick one show to watch in the mornings and she always, I mean always picks Mickey Mouse clubhouse. What's worse is she has one Minnie Mouse shirt that she wants to wear everyday. If I don't immediately put it in the hamper when it's dirty, she will find it and insist on putting it on, dried mac 'n cheese and all! So I figured a Minnie Mouse theme was a safe bet.

For her 1st birthday and also my son's 3rd, I made them both birthday shirts. I just love the idea of having a special shirt for their special day. You can see the shirts I've made for my kids here and here. So of course I had to make her a Minnie Mouse shirt to celebrate her second birthday!

(P.S. If you're looking for a custom birthday shirt for your little one, check out my shop.)

And how about this adorable clip my sister-in-law made for her to wear. Isn't it the cutest thing ever?!?

In addition to some Minnie plates, napkins and balloons, I ordered her a Minnie cupcake cake from Target. They did a beautiful job and for only about $25!

(This is the face of a child who's had waaaay too much sugar!)

So there you have it! We had a great time celebrating with our friends and family. And I am happy to report that we now have several Minnie Mouse shirts and sweatshirts to choose from! Thank goodness because I was tired of doing her laundry every other day!
