We celebrated Amarii’s first birthday with a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme – because he is obsessed with the show.  It was the first cartoon show that he physically reacted to…bopping on his knees whenever the show would come on…and watching intently at Mickey’s every move. It was a no brainer. He was just as animated with Mickey as Bobbi Elle was with Peppa Pig…hence her Peppa Pig themed party earlier this year in February. I shared some photos on the site: I’m Peppa Pig! Bobbi Turns Two!

I love doing my kids parties in outdoor areas, like parks and picnic areas.  Not always the best choice in the summer months in South Florida…we got pounded with rain and wind at one point during the party – but thankfully that lasted only a few minutes and the party was able to go on – despite most of my well thought out decor being destroyed in those few minutes.  Good thing we got some shots before the mini storm came thru….so here’s a peak behind AJ’s Clubhouse Birthday Bash!

Mickey Mouse birthday invitation
AJ’s birthday invite set off the theme and spirit of his 1st birthday…Mickey Mouse inspired!
Mickey Mouse oreo cookies
The night before the party – I made these Mickey Mouse inspired oreo cookies using double stuffed oreos, mini oreos and some red chocolate melt chips! It wasn’t perfect – but it was my labor of love. Damn you Pinterest!
Mickey Mouse decorations
I used large container bins to pack up all of my items to take to the park…used a checklist to make sure I didn’t forget my Mickey and Minnie ears and a slew of other things. Nothing like getting to the venue and remembering all of things you forgot at home!


Bobbi Elle has been obsessed with the latest hit animated British series – Peppa Pig.  Its pretty serious…so picking a theme for her 2nd birthday party wasn’t that hard.  What was hard was finding Peppa Pig decor and accessories to create an awesome party.  As of right now, Party City and many other stores do not carry a Peppa Pig line – so I had to scour the internet looking for places where I could find plates, cups, party hats – with Miss Peppa on them.  I found a lot of items on Amazon.com and Birthdaybox.com.  So I went to work, ordered all of my items to arrive just in time for the celebration.  We were surrounded by friends and family as we went to a nearby park on a cool day to celebrate Miss Bobbi turning TWO.  I also kept some decor for her small birthday celebration at her school the following day, on her actual birthday.  Here’s a peak of the party scenes:

Peppa Pig themed birthday invite
I always love a cute invite – and I have a great graphic designer who can always deliver. Thanks Danelle!
Peppa Pig tutu dress
I ordered a personalized Peppa Pig dress thru Etsy that mysteriously disappeared. (i.e., my dad threw it out in the trash by mistake. That’s another blog post in itself!!!!) By the time I figured out her birthday dress was missing – it was the day before the party. But thanks to Amazon.com – I got this number the next day! Because a Peppa Pig tutu dress was absolutely necessary for the birthday girl.
Peppa Pig cupcakes
Cupcakes are a must at any kids party…and the Butter Creamery delivered! I added Peppa Pig toppings that I purchased on Amazon.
