Showing our #DisneySide for Chuck’s 2nd birthday party!

We did it! Today was our #DisneySide at home celebration party and Chuck had so much fun! Oh, who am I kidding? We ALL had so much fun! To celebrate C’s second birthday, we hosted 12 kiddos and 20 parents at what has lovingly been dubbed our “MickeySPLOSION!” Chuckles is a Mickey and Minnie fanatic and this party absolutely reflected that! Here are a few of my favorite things about this shin dig. Please take them and make them your own as you show off your own “Disney side!”
 
Decorations and Food
 
I put the favor table at our house entrance so the kids could grab their Mickey ears and get in the spirit right from the get-go. I ordered these absolutely adorable ears from Diane at LittleTreasure4U on etsy. Diane was dream to work with and her craftsmanship is excellent. I highly recommend this vendor if you are in the market for ANY Disney themed needs. She also does Hello Kitty and many other things as well. Exclusively for my readers, she is offering a 15% discount on your first order if you use code “cara15” in the coupon section!
 
I was able to snag some authentic Disneyland buttons last time we visited the park!
 
Our snack table was a blast to put together! I found some free printable table markers at Homeketeers.com and I was able to easily customize them for our chosen snacks. Chuck requested a few of her favorite things…berries, popcorn and mandarin oranges. (The other additions were for mama’s cravings!) We decided to forgo the cake for muffins since we were having a morning party and no one seemed to mind one bit.
 



I made the streamer garland from jute twine and .97 cent streamers from WalMart. They looked awesome!

 
This centerpiece was so easy and cheap to make! I used floral arranging foam shapes wrapped in black electric tape for the head, a skewer stick for the middle and a pot with a foam base inside for the bottom. I accented with white shredded paper and a bow from ribbon I already had. Easy peasy!
 
 
Activities
 
We had two games for the nuggets to play. One was a hit and one was a miss.
 
First up was toddler slide toilet paper bowling. All the kids LOVED this and couldn’t get enough. Since it was raining for our party (much needed and appreciated in SoCal!) we tailored the previously planned outdoor fun to be indoor friendly. For this game we brought in C’s toddler slide and used it as a ramp for the ball to roll down before toppling a stack of toilet paper rolls. At first the rolls weren’t falling over because they were the double rolls and TOO sturdy! Thanks to the quick thinking of one of the smarty dad’s in attendance we utilized some unused cups to create an unstable target. All the kids from the babies to the 4 year old enjoyed this game and it could have provided an hour of entertainment. BUT, we had muffins and presents to get to!
 
 

 
Game two was a variation on pin the tail on the donkey…Pin the “Tootles” on the Clubhouse. I had all the kids color a cutout Mickey head to look like the trusty Tootles from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I had printed out a “clubhouse scene” I found on Google and taped to the wall. When the time came, we had each kid blindfolded, spun and headed in the general vicinity of the target….or so was the plan. In reality, most of the children in attendance were too young for this activity, but they still enjoyed coloring their Mickey heads. 
 
 
I think it is safe to say that Chuck had an excellent time showing her Disney side at her second birthday celebration. Oh, and boy do her friends know what she likes?! She received lots of gifts to keep the Disney party going even after the day was done! She is one happy girl tonight and She will definitely sleep well as she dreams of the happiest place on earth!

  1. What a fun party. I love the ice cream cones filled with strawberries! It was so nice sitting with you at Baby Bloggy Boot Camp last week. Love making new bloggy friends! 🙂

  2. My comment didn’t post! lol. Happy Birthday Charlie!!! And loved the bowling set up! The cups was such a smart way to help make it easier for them to “fall down”. Gonna keep that in mind for any indoor activities we need to keep the kids preoccupied!
