Five on Friday: Olivia's Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Planning

If you've been following for awhile you'll know that I've been planning and crafting Olivia's birthday since about February (her birthday is in July…) well it's about a month away so I've been working on it practically daily now. Here are some of my recent projects:


The finished product should hopefully resemble Mickey Mouse. Bottom will be red, top black with yellow buttons.


Rollin' rollin' rollin'….. silverware
These will either be 'handy helpers' or 'mouseketools'

Hot glued two "buttons" onto a 50-pack of red solo cups- yes, every single cup. Don't worry, I'm going back to work soon…..


Each table will have a pile of these quotes from various Disney movies. I don't plan on making actual centerpieces for a backyard BBQ/first birthday so these quotes layer out around the tables will make a great conversation starter for all guests.
(Let's leave out the fact that my printer started running out of red ink for the backs of the cards) 


 Food place card holders.

Place card template found at Splashbox Printables on Etsy
Font is 'Mickey' on PS: DaFont is one of my all time favorite websites for downloading new fun fonts. 
Printed by me at Staples on extra glossy 8pt. paper for less than $3


Not my proudest project but it'll do. These will be in a basket with a 'We've got ears, say cheers!' sign I have yet to make.
Black headbands found at Walmart for 97cents each.
Black foam at Michaels makes 6 ears each so 3 total headbands for less than a dollar a sheet
Mouse Ears template
