Michelle's Party Plan-It: Sailing Away with Mickey - Part 1

Sailing Away with Mickey - Part 1

My little fella loves Mickey Mouse and anything to do with water, especially boats. One day while visiting Paradise Pier at Disneyland's California Adventure, it hit me! A nautical Mickey Mouse birthday party would be perfect for his 3rd birthday party!

Here are the highlights of his big day!












 

























The Details & Decor:
To set the tone, I started with the invitation utilizing traditional nautical elements with some Mickey Mouse inspired details in red, white, aqua and navy blue. With the nautical theme being trendy right now, it was easy to find decorative items to coordinate. I even found Seagulls to hang overhead for that extra touch.  I also reused several elements from past parties in the same color palette to stay within my budget. I handcrafted most of the paper items using my cricut. I also learned how to make paper boats and sailor knots on YouTube. What ever did we do before the internet and YouTube?

Favors:
I personalized sailor hats for each child and hand painted muslin favor bags with red anchors and filled them with foam boats, whistles, anchor tattoos, bubbles and fish necklaces.

The Food/Desserts:
We served grilled salmon and lemon herb chicken, baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, crab salad, green salad, cheese toast and clam chowder. The dessert tables were filled with candy and cupcakes along with Mickey cake pops, marshmallow cereal treats and cookies made by my friends Jamie and Theresa.

Fun & Games:
Planning a nautical themed birthday party in February calls for flexibility. Weather is very unpredictable this time of year in Southern California, I needed to have a back up plan in case it rained. It rained days before the party and right after, but luckily we had a gorgeous day filled with sunshine. You can read more about the fun and games in Part 2 posted here.

Thank you to all of our closest family and friends who joined the celebration as Liam enjoyed every minute of his big day.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Those are Mickey Marshmallow Peeps. I was lucky enough to find them at Christmas time, just in time for his party. I just popped them on a straw. :)

Great! I should certainly say, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info ended up being truly easy to do to access. Excellent task.

Hi! Great party and decorations! I was wondering, how did you do (or where you ordered) the cheese crackers bags with the "catch of the day" label.

Thanks in advance!

OK - definitely using this for inspiration for my baby boy's 1st birthday! He loves nothing but Mickey, but I was having trouble finding a Mickey theme that wasn't so...tacky! :) This is perfect! Where did you get those sailor hats from and how did you personalize them?
