Party Recap

This second birthday party is near and dear to us - it was for our little girl. She just loves Minnie and so I thought it would be a perfect theme for her. The fabulous invite, banner and printables are from Photo Designz on Etsy. Lori just took my vision and ran with it; everything was perfect.

I think my favorite decor item was the ribbon topiary. To make, I cut 3" strips of ribbon {and to save time I did this all at once}, folded in half and used a pin to secure on the foam. It was super easy, just took awhile. The Terra Cotta pots were sprayed pink and filled with rocks to hold the dowels. I then just used some crinkle paper to top them off so the rocks weren't visible.

We wanted to give Aurora's cousins little gift boxes. These adorable pink with white polka dot boxes were created by Rosie of Unique Boutique by GaMi. Rosie also created the 'thank you' labels for the front. The boxes were filled with all things Minnie Mouse - Pez dispenser, stickers, a mini stuffed animal and other goodies. The lovely custom fondant toppers were made by our sweet friend, Brittany, from Edible Details.

The glittered 'A' was a piece of foam that was spray painted a glitter pink. All the pieces were glued to dowels and placed into the pots and ribbon was adhered to the top.
