Mickey Birthday Party Roundup

There may be affiliate links in this post, but they have no impact on my writing. All opinions are my own.


Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was the theme for my daughter’s 1st Birthday Party!

I didn’t realize how much work goes into a child’s birthday party until I hosted my daughter’s first party. However, since I used a combination of DIY craft projects (with supplies from JoAnn Fabrics) and Mickey Mouse themed decorations from Party City, it was relatively easy to put everything together and we had a lot of fun doing it! See all the items I used and would recommended below.

Welcome Sign: I used a Reclaimed Wood Window Picture Frame and inserted pictures from her 1 year photo shoot along with a scrapbook piece where I wrote “Happy Birthday Charlotte!” It was very easy, and I hope to re-use the frame for future parties.

Mickey & Minnie Table Centerpieces: This was a fun and easy craft project! I have a series of blog posts explaining the DIY process (HERE). These were made a week or two before the party, so I was able to get it out of the way.

I also crafted the party favor bags and filled them with Mickey Mouse party favors. I thought the bags were simple to make, and it gave a personalized touch. Supplies included:

Hot Diggity-Dog Bar: For food, we created a hot dog bar with a wide variety of toppings for people to enjoy. Toppings included: ketchup, mustard, relish, onions, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and chili. Since it was a summer party, we were able to grill hot dogs outside and set up the bar next to the grill. (A small crock pot was perfect to keep the chili warm.) We also had a lot of different side dishes that everyone pitched in to bring.

Mickey Mouse Cake: I give my husband full credit for baking and decorating the cake, but it would not have been possible without the Mickey Mouse cake pan and cake decorating kit. We decided to make this cake for Charlotte and the kids, so used a package of Funfetti cake mix and buttercream frosting.

Cupcakes: I narrowed it down to 2 different flavored cupcakes: Orange Dream and Black Forest Cherry. Yum! To keep it simple in the kitchen, I used a package of orange cake mix with a can of vanilla frosting for the orange dream cupcakes, and the black forest cherry cupcakes were a simple recipe that I loved so much, I highlighted in a blog post (HERE). I made the cupcakes a day in advance and kept them in the fridge until the party. They would not have been complete without the Mickey Mouse baking cups or Mickey Mouse cupcake picks, and the 4-tier cupcake tower was a perfect display for the party.

Charlotte was a Cake Eating Queen in her Today I Eat Cake bib & crown. It was definitely a cake smash success!

Other party decorations included: Mickey Mouse swirl decorations, Mickey Mouse honeycomb balls, and a Mickey Mouse scene setter.

In the end, her birthday party was a lot of fun! It would not have been possible without all the help we had from family members, so I’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped and was able to celebrate with us. We’re looking forward to her next birthday party…but thankfully we don’t have to start worrying about that until next year!
