I was so busy planning the Pink & Chevron Baby Shower for one of my best friends that I nearly forgot about Hazelnut's Minnie Mouse Party!
My amazing friend Devin made the cake again! She made the fabulous cake from Hazelnut's Little Miss Sunshine party last year.
In the background you can see the banner I made, and on the right another sign. I got these free printables here & just added my own text! It's also where I got her invitation from. So simple!
For food, we got Chick-fil-A! Let me tell you, there is nothing easier, and nothing more enjoyed by party guests! I live about 15 minutes from my preferred Chick-fil-A (Patrick Henry Mall!) so I opted to get a reheatable nugget tray and reheat it at my house rather than try to juggle picking up food & keeping it warm for guests to arrive. Much easier just to throw it in the oven, and they reheated perfectly!
We also had CFA Chicken Salad Sandwiches, fruit, and Sweet Tea! Then I used my friend's punch recipe. A 2 liter of ginger ale, a bottle of sparkling grape juice, and frozen fruit on top. It's pretty, the fruit keeps it cold, and it's sooo simple. It's a definite crowd pleaser! Mine was a little foamy-- it probably wouldn't be if I hadn't of dumped everything in so quickly.
For favors I had some bags from a rainbow birthday party I thought I was going to throw last year, but changed my mind. I thought about getting pink favor bags, but then felt a little bad for the guys at the party, so went with these since I already had them. Did they match? No. Do I care? Not really.
I put candy in all, and then headbands & necklaces for the girls & play-doh & extra candy for the guys.
For decorations I got this decor kit from Amazon. It was $7 and perfect.
Another look at the decor from the night before.
One more look at that cake... oh I just love it so much! Ombre pink Minnie Mouse birthday cake... what could be better? It was delicious!
