We celebrated Eliza's birthday this past weekend. (can you guys believe she's two?!? I can't. It seems like just yesterday she was born.)
When Eliza was in the hospital a few months ago, E's work sent her a giant Minnie Mouse with balloons. She, over night, developed an obsession with Minnie. I decided that it would be a fun birthday theme for her.
Thanks to pinterest and my friend with a silhouette machine (that thing is awesome!) I think we pulled off an awesome party. Here are pictures, with links to the inspiration.
The cake. I actually go the idea for this from my running partner. (She does amazing cakes!) The black Minnie and Eliza's name are sugar paper. I picked it up at Michael's for $4. I used my neighbor's silhouette machine to cut the letters and shape. The bow is pull-and-peel licorice. (my idea. My friend suggested piping frosting. Yeah. I'm not talented at that at.all.)
I loved this tutorial for the minnie mouse board. This is in Eliza's room now as a decoration.
I used this idea for the invites, as well as the banner.
I bought the Minnie confetti. Could I have made it? Sure. But, it was super cheap from this etsy site: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/149743166?ref=fb2_tnx_title
I got the inspiration for the headband party favors here. I did change the bow to a felt cut out. I liked the minnie shape better.
I don't remember where I got this idea. Somewhere on pinterest. The original idea was with a foam floral wreath circle. I used embroidery hoops, and used wood glue to attach them.
This idea was all me. I wanted to hang some pictures of Eliza through the past 2 years. I bought the poster board from the dollar tree for 50 cents.
Her clips came from here and are Minnies. Her shirt is a hand-me down.
She absolutely loves when people sing happy birthday to her. She was so excited!
