This weekend we celebrated Miss L’s 2nd Birthday in disney style with a Minnie Mouse Birthday! The celebration was wonderful, despite the weather not cooperating, and as always she was spoiled with gifts upon gifts! We will be spending the week reorganizing the play room to make room for all the new additions!
We stuck to the classics for colour scheme: red, yellow and black. Of coarse the stores were filled with pink minnie decorations, but that did not concern us, as the decorations were all handmade! I enjoyed trying a few new techniques when making these decorations – like the Minnie Mouse shaped invitations and then a few classic decorations – cupcake toppers, layered food labels and more.
As per every year, we made a scrapbook page guest book for everyone to sign and write little notes to the birthday girl! I like this tradition, as then every year I add this page to our scrapbook with a few party pictures, so we can look back on the birthday girl and see how she has grown through out the years!
The Food & Sweets…
We made all the food ourselves (with the help of our lovely family, ie. DAWZ Catering), from the hand cut mickey mouse cheese slices, tied veggie bundles, dips, and s’mores and strawberry cheesecake desserts! We were going with a “BBQ” theme for the food, with the main dish being Mickey shaped hamburgers and smokies! Then of coarse to top it all off, we had a candy bar!
The cake and the cupcakes were, as always, hand made by my amazing cousin (ie. The Cupcake Machine)!
