Oh "Two"dles! It's Carter's Mickey Mouse Birthday Party!

We recently celebrated our sweet Carter's 2nd birthday with a Mickey Mouse theme.  The boy LOVES Mickey (who he calls "B" - we have no idea why.  He can say "Mickey Mouse" perfectly, along with every other character on the show, but for some reason when he wants to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse he says, "Anudder [another] B!").  Silly boy.

I had alot of fun making some cute decor for the party - I posted about a couple of the projects here and here.  It wasn't a huge party, but all his favorite people were there and he had a blast!

Here is my HANDSOME little boy!  I can't believe he is two ::sob::


The invitation, created by my talented brother!


Some party details - first up, sweets and treats!  I found these Mickey head lollipops at WalMart in the Valentine's Day section.  Tied with a ribbon, they were perfect for our party!


Cookies were ordered from Yummy Delicious Cookies and were so cute!


I made the cupcakes (don't be TOO impressed, they were from a boxed mix - some chocolate and some Funfetti) and found the Mickey-themed sprinkles at WalMart.  The cupcake stand was from WalMart as well, found in their Valentine section.





These adorable party printables (cupcake toppers) were from laurenloulolly on Etsy - they were adorable - I highly recommend this seller!


Emily helped me sort out three big bags of M&Ms and then put them in these little cello bags - she is a party planner in training for sure!  Such a big helper, too!

I made this cute subway art using this tutorial over at Oopsey Daisy.  I love how this turned out!  I used some sayings that are special to us, as well as some Mickey Mouse sayings.  I got so many compliments on this!



My mom made this A-MAZING banner for the party - it is truly a work of art!  I don't think my picture does it justice at all. 


I just did some simple decor in the dining room:


More party decor:


I made this hat, but Carter never even put it on!




Some pics of the birthday boy (Carter's shirt from  Ella Grace's Closet here)!









Carter John, we are SO proud to be your parents.  You are a ray of sunshine in our family, and you make us laugh EVERY day!  There has never been a smarter, funnier, sweeter, more loving little two year old boy than you.  We love you!  Happy birthday!!!!
