4 Fun Girl Birthday Pary Themes // #2 Minnie Mouse Party

Friday, July 18, 2014





Stop #2 of this series brings us to Gigi's 2nd Birthday at the Park- Minnie Mouse theme.

Summer's are rough sometimes to host a birthday party, because where we live it can get into the 90's, so its just too hot (I am totally weak sauce my temperature range is like 72-76).  Since it was a scorcher this particular year, we hosted G's party at a park more coastal which is about 10 degrees cooler, BIG difference.  She was obsessed with any Mickey Mouse Clubhouse character, so I zero inned on Minnie Mouse. 

When planning a park party there are many Pros and Cons....

Pros:  
  • Already activities for kids to do (playground)
  • Don't necessarily need to organize activities for the kids
  • Forces me to scale back and be more simple
  • Change of venue- it is fun to go somewhere different, feels festive
  • Kids LOVE the park, so will really enjoy it

Cons:
  • You have to keep a close eye on kids because you are in a big public space
  • I cannot decorate as detailed as I want
  • you have to lug all your crap to the park....shade, coolers, cupcakes, toys etc...
  • you have to get there early, good spots can go fast on the weekend

My preference is still to have parties at my house, I find that easiest, but that can get boring after awhile...especially for a child that becomes more opinionated on what they want to do for their birthday.  This was a fun way to mix things up!





Thanks Auntie "B" for the amazing chalk art!

and YES Gigi is wearing Pink Rainbow flip flops- We are Cali through and through.




My favorite element of the theme incorporated into this party were these adorable minnie cake pops!!! I am not a baker, the cake is something I dread...(I am responsible for those hideous, but yummy, cupcakes in the background)..so I am entirely thankful for my friend Stephanie who volunteered to make these! She is the cake pop queen!


G- your 2nd birthday was so much fun sweet girl. I Love You.

  2. Oh my these are all adorable! I was confused between Minnie and Hello Kitty but both are fine for a little girls party since they are pinkish. But seeing your helpful Minnie Mouse party ideas , I think I'm gonna suggest this to my friends!
    I will be exploring more maybe I could add them to my own compilation. thank you so much!!
