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!

Mickey Mouse sandwiches
Morning of the party, I recruited my sister to help make these Mickey Mouse shaped Peanut Butter + Jelly sandwiches.
Mickey Mouse printables
I love getting themed printables for my parties…Etsy comes thru with so many awesome designs that can add that special touch to your events. Napkin holder printables for the kid utensils. And I bought small utensils with red and yellow colored napkins to create these “Mouseketools.”

More printables from Etsy…food tents! Found these frames at Michael’s.
Kids coloring table
Every kid party has to have a coloring table! Some kids were playing at the playground while others chose to color.
Themed signs throughout the party.

The main event….Thanks to Divine Delicacies Custom Cakes – they delivered an awesome Mickey Mouse cake. It was the perfect addition to make the party complete.

But the real icing on the cake was when Mickey Mouse showed up! Miss Bobbi had a blast with him and it wasn’t even her party! Mickey was all hers!
Miss Bobbi declared days before the party that AJ was Mickey and she was Minnie...wish granted!
