Minnie Mouse Themed First Birthday Party

22 Mar

My god daughter has turned one year old!  It is hard to believe it.  That time flew by!  I looked at many blogs and websites to research Minnie Mouse parties and came up with a multitude I liked.  I was able to find a cake that both her mom and I liked, as well as free downloads that others openly shared.  As a result, we celebrated last night with family, decked out with Minnie!

I first started with an invitation.  I used a free printable and SVG file from Sherry K. Designs (see the file) and cut the head and bow out.  I layered it on top of a black card base, pink paper, and fuschia polkadot paper.  The personalized label came from The Cutting Cafe and is called the Baby Girl First Birthday Colored Tags/Toppers.  The inside invite page is from Catch My Party and was also a free set.

My husband can wrap gifts like no one’s business.  Here is one of the gifts he wrapped, using things he swiped from my crafting stash…

We got her a lot of clothes so hubby wrapped each outfit separately and they went into a  large gift bag…

Of course I had to make the perfect card to go with the gifts and used the Dress Shaped Card 2 from The Cutting Cafe along with another version of the customize tag used on the invitations …

After looking at a lot of blogs about Minnie Mouse parties, I found a cake I loved at Plus One Blog.  Ours looked very close to it.
