Mickey Mouse Orange Party


It's birthday party week at tell it to your neighbor!!! I've been wanting to share birthday parties for a long time but two things have prevented me from doing it.  #1. No time to write.  I like sharing the story and I like taking my time to write it.  #2. Photography.  I'm usually the photographer, I barely have time to take a few snapshots of my parties and I'm lucky if those few photos are in focus.  Ha!  Then I compare my simple party photos to the picturesque parties I see on Pinterest and other blogs.  None of this is good and it prevents me from doing what I want, so let's blow-up #1 and #2!  I'm sharing the way TITYN does it.  This is how we do it, all hands are in the air... :)


This is my son's 3rd birthday party (a year ago) in our backyard with just our family.  He wanted a Mickey Mouse party and he wanted everyone to wear his favorite color orange.  So a Mickey Mouse Orange party it was and I did my best to incorporate the two. :)  You've seen the Invitation and the #3 Cake and now here are the rest of the details:




The disposable sippy cup:




The first use of our Sand and Water table:




With everyone in the same color, I felt camaraderie, we were a big team celebrating Beau!


Party favors were peanut butter crackers (for the hungry ride home) and orange slices in a sand shovel from IKEA:


And here are a few pics of the After Party:




I feel uncomfortable posting this party without links and sources for everything.  So, if you have a question about anything, leave it in the comment section or on Facebook and I'll reply as soon as I can!

Stay posted this week for my daughter's Wild Kratts party and my son's Scooby-Doo Meets Batman party!  Less words, less comparison, more posting!
