Pinterest Love for Carter's Mickey Mouse Party

I know it's been a LONG time since I've blogged.  Once again life has gotten crazy (I won't bore anyone with too many details!) but I really want to start blogging more.  I just need to make the time for it!

I wanted to share today how AMAZED I am that Carter's second Mickey Mouse birthday party has gotten so much attention.  It has been pinned so much on Pinterest - I honestly can't believe it.  I get at least five or six emails a week asking me questions about how I did various things for the party decor.  When I go to my stats on my blog, though, I get the most hits to my party from Tip Junkie.  I went over there today and was SHOCKED to see that our little birthday party is featured as one of the top popular parties - of all time!  On Tip Junkie of all places!!!!



I am truly humbled that so many people are interested in my party.  Honestly, planning that party was one of the hardest things I've ever done, because I had just had a miscarriage a month and a half earlier and I really don't remember a lot of what happened during those first awful months.  I thought about not having a real party, but then I somehow pulled myself up by my bootstraps and got everything together in a matter of days.  The project I get the most emails about is my Mickey topiary - you can go see that here.  Next, I would say that the most popular item is the M&M cello bags - I shared where I bought those bags here.  Finally, I also get a lot of questions about how I made the Mickey wreath - you can go here to check that out and get a link to a great tutorial.  So - if you are one of the people who have pinned the party, clicked on my blog, emailed me with nice things to say, or commented - THANK YOU!!!!  It truly makes my day to know that others would be interested in the silly stuff I do around here sometimes =)

Carter wants a Thomas party next - it's coming up soon, so I've started pinning a bunch of stuff to get some ideas.  If you have any great links for me for train parties, please send them my way!

I found your blog online and adored the Mickey Mouse party. Amazing!! My little boy turned two today and I have tried to create some of your fantastic ideas for his party tomorrow.

Thank you for the inspiration

I have used your party as my reference for the last month in planning! I have the cupcake stands and the etsy cupcake toppers and subway art! I am so excited to see it all come together! Thanks for not minding for others to copy your ideas! It really helps those of us who are challenged in the party planning area!
I would LOVE to know where you found the polka dot table cloth? I really need a few round ones....

Heather, I am so excited that you won the Valentine package giveaway from my sister's shop. With all your creativity, I know you will put it to good use! Jennifer was going to e-mail you, but I just wanted to stop by to say how pleased we were to see your name drawn.

I have spent some time browsing, and your parties are so cute! Congratulations on the Pinterest and Tip Junkie love! It is certainly well deserved.

I am following now and look forward to see what you come up with next! Blessings!

So exciting...and well deserved for sure! It really is such a darling party -- such great attention to details.
I think it is especially nice that you link your sources. [smile] I might just have as many visitors from 'Life With Lulu and Junebug...And Carter' as you do from Tip Junkie! :)
Congrats!

I just dropped by to let you know that I'm featuring your Mickey head topiary as my PINspiration for my PINspiration blog hop tomorrow. Hope you can stop by and see how mine turned. Thanks for such a GREAT idea! And I'd love for you to link up if you have your own PINspiration project you'd like to share. http://www.disneylivingonline.com

My daughter found your blog and called me right away. Her daughter turned 2 in December and is in LOVE with Mickey. You gave us so many ideas. She made the subway art and Mickey cake pops. They came out perfect. I made the mickey topiary. I used a round ball of styrafoam though. It took me 2 days to put all that tissue paper on. I hot glued each piece. I wish I hadn't and followed your tutorial instead. I have a few scars where I burned my fingers, but oh so worth it. Her mother in law made the banner using her cricket. We both agree it was by far the best party we have ever done. She also has a 4 year old so we have done a lot of parties. Not just birthday parties. Thank you for all the fun ideas!
