Move over Mickey, there’s a new star in town! From the printables to the birthday dress, Misha Perritt of A Lovely Design single-handedly created this fun & glittery Minnie Mouse Birthday Party for her darling daughter, Talula. To add some glitz and glam into this classic theme, Misha included a generous helping of glitter & a dash of leopard print throughout the playful paper details. I’m especially loving the big, bow-topped Minnie backdrop though… there’s nothing mini about that showstopper! ;)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Gold glitter ‘3’ with Minnie ears & bow + glittered styrofoam ball Minnie centerpiece with pink roses
- Leopard print accented printables & bottle wraps + rhinestone adorned cupcake toppers
- Pink chocolate & sugar dipped rice krispies + bow topped pink Minnie cookies
- Amazing handmade dress & matching bow topped headband for the birthday girl
- Hanging tissue paper poms, gold glitter table skirt + silk flowers & a ‘Talula’ topper on the cake
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Misha…
My daughter Talula was turning three and there was nothing she loved more than Minnie Mouse! I decided to change it up a bit by putting a glittery sweet twist to the traditional Minnie Mouse theme. I achieved this by using glittery gold accents, pale pinks and creams, a subtle leopard print and rhinestone accents to complete this adorable look!
I always start by designing the invitation, followed by all of the fun party printables like food tents, favor tags, straw flags and place cards. I decided to add glittery gold Minnie ears thoughout the design to keep the theme cohesive and Minnie-rific! I loved all the feminine details of this party like the ruffled backdrop of the dessert table and the adorable gold headbands adorned with darling pink bows (which the little girls were all given to wear). But my favorite part would have to be the custom birthday dress I made for Miss Talula to wear. It was trimmed with a pale leopard pattern around the neck and arms and adorned with a pink bow accented with delicate white feathers, a rhinestone center and finished with a most fabulous matching hair accessory!
Some of my other favorite details of the party included the glittery gold dessert table skirt adorned with sweet tassels, the beautiful gold cake topper and last but certainly not least, the “Minnie” table set perfectly in front of the dessert table for Miss Talula and her little guests to enjoy their Minnie inspired lunch! We served the girls Minnie shaped grilled cheese, fruit, “minnie” veggies and dip. For dessert, everyone enjoyed Minnie shaped sugar cookies and delectable vanilla cupcakes!
I do hope you enjoy this party as much as we did and perhaps find some inspiration for your next party!
