A certain Mickey Mouse enthusiast turned two this weekend and we had a wonderful time in the clubhouse.
The Baking Room made the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake, which was a triumph and the birthday boy agreed by tasting it as soon as he could reach.
The colours for the party were black, red and yellow. The Mickey Mouse silhouettes were everywhere. That means a lot of cutting, but we used this awesome template we found on Google images.
We also made use of the rental service at In Good Company for the first time. We were impressed and will certainly do it again. They have an amazing collection of stuff for rent. Not to mention all their super cool party supplies. Just make peace already, you will spend way too much in this store and be deliriously happy with everything.
The birthday boy’s favourite snack is popcorn. So that was a given and we loved the popcorn boxes. We chose a variety of black, red and yellow candy. Meringues and macarons added to our party fun.
We also made Oreo Cheesecakes and yes, they are as decadent as they sound. We recommend these for all occasions. Like Wednesdays. They are perfect and you can find the recipe on Gimmesomeoven.com.
We made a Mickey Mouse out of fruit. Thank you, Pinterest. It was a hit and complimented the crudité platter.
For entertainment, we hired a bubble machine and the little people loved it. You know that scene in Finding Nemo where the fish goes My bubbles, my bubbles, my bubbles?
Well, times that by a bunch of two-year-olds and you’ll know how much fun it was.
The straws were simple to make with double sided tape and more silhouettes. We decorated tin cans to look like Mickey. It was so easy and they made handy containers.
And then there were the sugar cookies. Wow. We used a simple cookie cutter to make the Mickey Mouse shape. With over 7,000 reviews and 4.5 stars, we couldn’t go wrong with this recipe.
The treat bags were simple black and white striped paper bags with red and yellow silhouettes stuck on the bags.
Twoodles, until next time.
