Birthday Style: Mickey and Minnie Twins' Birthday Party
I had so much fun planning the twins' First Birthday party. I knew I wanted to do Mickey and Minnie, but wanted to stick to the polka dot theme as well. I loved how everything turned out! I always enjoy doing as much as I can for the kids' birthday parties instead of doing the general themes. I get tons of ideas on Pinterest and Etsy and pull things together. One tip is to start doing things early. I start planning about 2 months before to give plenty of time to plan and buy things little by little.
It was such a great day, even with the Texas July heat. The babies loved all the attention and loved birthday cake! We served hamburgers and hot dogs that B grilled for us. And we had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the older kids. We celebrated with our (huge) families and great friends. We feel so blessed to have shared such a special day with loved ones. And I still can't believe my little babies are ONE! How time flies. And I really wish I could press the pause button.
Where I got everything:
Banner, straws, plates, wrapping paper, food label boxes, decorations- Dollar Store (there is a local dollar store here in Houston that has a huge selection of birthday supplies. I was in polka dot Heaven).
