Vintage Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

Whew! It's been a while since my last post! A lot has happened in the last six months, but that's a whole other post! Let's get right to the Mickey Mouse party that I designed for my son & nephew's birthday! Finley has been obsessed with Mickey, and when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday theme this year, I admit, I cringed when he said Mickey! A Disney theme... its SOOOO been done already! I'm not one to deny that boy, well much, so of course... A Mickey party it is!


We have a large extended family with lots of little ones, so we've decided to group the kids up for parties. Fin gets to party with his 1 year old cousin, Grayson! A Mickey theme was perfect for a 4 & 1 year old's birthday party... who doesn't love Mickey Mouse?! Here is the invite we sent out. The design was inspired by the original "Steamboat Willie" Cartoon & Anniversary Poster. I paired the simple invite with a fun mickey pattern back side, kraft envelopes, a printable address wrap and fun black and white chevron washi tape!

Here's our little Birthday boys! They both wore matching shirts with Chevron Mickey Appliques on them. {Is this the last year that I'll get away with matching shirts for these guys!?} Each little guest took home their very own mini Mickey Mouse favor bag. The body was stuffed with yummy red gummy bears and we DIY'd the mini mickey heads with black painted styrofoam balls. Two small white button and a personalized name tag and these mini Mickey's were the perfect pint sized snack!
Our welcome table included home made tissue poms, a hand drawn chevron mickey mouse head on a chalk board and a fabulously styled vintage dresser {beautifully painted by Grayson's mommy & daddy, owners of Leisure Living Furniture!}.
All the little mice were requested to wear a pair of Mickey Mouse Ears! We spruced up a chalk board easel with hand made tissue poms, a printable mini banner and all the mouse ear headbands!
Black & White Chevron Pattern, Mickey Mouse Pattern and Black, White & Red colors was the main thread we tied throughout this party...
Our dessert table was filled with tasty treats, from mickey mouse cookies {lovingly made by my mom}, to mickey shaped rice krispie treats and oreo pops! A darling chevron cake made for a simple and modern center piece!



Our drink bar was filled with bold printable party designs. A vibrant banner, water bottle & juice box wraps, and tags for the mason jars & chevron straws all tied in this Mickey theme nicely!



To keep the {darling chevron printed} wooden fork and napkin together, we put them inside a small chevron flat bag and adhered a round printable tag on each. Printable Signs and Pennants tied each "station" together.
Customized food label tent cards were placed in front of each dish. And, we had fun with our Mickey Mouse shaped cookie cutter!
We used the DIY'd styrofoam Mickey Mouse heads as centerpieces on each table by putting them in a mason jar filled with red ripped paper and adorn with two white buttons and polka dot ribbon.
It was so special to celebrate this little guy's first birthday! He was very successful at smashing his first piece of cake and making a wonderful mess!
Happy Birthday Finley & Grayson!

This party is amazing Nellie!!! Love every touch and it's so fun that you and Gma and Lora can collaborate for an awesome final look (love all the great etsy finds as well). I saw Lora's sneer peeks on Instagram but I had no idea that whole party was this fabulous! Nice work Momma/Auntie!!!
