I’m so excited to share my best friend’s son, Luke’s Mickey Mouse Themed 1st Birthday Party! Luke is exactly 6 Months and 1 day older than Riley, so it won’t be long before I’m sharing Baby Riley’s 1st Birthday party. Would you think i’m crazy if I told you I’ve already started planning her party?!?! That’s for another day Today is all about Baby Luke’s Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday Party!! I must say, Allison did a amazing job, as Luke’s party turned out Fabulous!!
When it came to planning Luke’s 1st Birthday Party Allison wanted to incorporate Luke’s love for Mickey Mouse, so she turned her home into Luke’s very own club house! She even had a flag that said so! From the Mickey Mouse Cake and Cake Pops to the Mickey Mouse Air Walker and Fabric Mickey silhouette backdrop, we celebrated Luke’s 1st Birthday in the most fitting way.
Upon arrival the guests were welcomed to Luke’s Clubhouse by Mickey himself (a card board Mickey that is).
Allison chose custom made Mickey Mouse invitations for Luke’s party. I wanted to do something special as part of Luke’s present so I purchased a shadow box and displayed the invitation along with a picture of Luke from when he was just a few days old. To frame the picture I purchased a small wooden L from Michaels and mod podged it with blue glitter. Allison chose to display the invitation shadow box on the candy buffet table.
To set the tone for the party Allison chose to stick with the original Mickey Mouse Clubhouse color scheme of black, red, yellow and blue. She added a modern flair by incorporating Chevron into the party design. Allison had two tables setup, one was for the food and cake and the other was for the candy buffet and party favors.
The food and dessert table was dressed in a black linen with a blue and white chevron table runner going down the middle and a red banner draped across the front. A two-tier Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed cake with a yellow bunting cake topper took the spotlight on the table. To the left of the cake sat a popcorn machine and old timey popcorn boxes filled with homemade popcorn. To the right of the cake sat a display of Mickey Mouse Head Cheeses (Cheddar and Swiss) and crackers, as well as Mickey Mouse inspired cups and paper straws with Mickey Mouse Flags.
For the candy buffet table Allison used a teal side table that she has on display in her home (it’s a beautiful table, so adding any extra linens would have taken away from the overall look). She displayed several types of candy including gum balls, sixlets, lemon drops, candy sticks and lolipops, as well as the Mickey Mouse Head Cake Pops. Above the table Allison had a Mickey Mouse Backdrop that she made by covering a canvas with 1.5 yards of Mickey Mouse Fabric that she purchased at hobby lobby.
Here are a few pics of the Birthday boy! Allison had Luke’s Mickey Mouse outfit and bib custom-made. It was absolutely adorable!
The Birthday Boy and his Proud Parents!! Cheers to Allison & Matt for making it through the first year!!
Until next time….
