a minnie gift for little Kasya

Last month, I asked my sister in law whether she wants to have a birthday party for her daughter, and she said yes!!! well, I've got nothing to do at the moment and thought to give little Kasya a themed dessert table for her birthday. She woofs Minnie Mouse and so I started to google about Minnie Mouse. There are lots of Minnie Mouse birthday party theme and they all have the same pink and polkadot pattern and I ended up adding new color to brighten the party and a slightly vintage look, so it doesn't look like the ordinary Minnie Mouse, well lets say, a Minnie Mouse inspired birthday party.

please say hello to lime green!!! the new color for the theme.

I began my work by collecting things for the birthday and I thought to make most of the decorations by myself, well instead of buying things of course, hohohoho. I used my mom's vintage cake stand, added up lime green ribbon to the touch. I bought the materials such as tissue paper for the poms, polkadot napskins, paper doilies, gift wrap, ribbons, et cetera at the nearest 2dollar shop.

It's cheaper to make your own pompoms than to buy one, mine costs about five dollar and it's about IDR35k for 5 tissue paper so I've made 10 poms out of it, with different sizes, and the best part was they only took a few minutes. It's cheaper to make everything on your own!!! the garland, bunting, ribbon topiary, the labels, I myself didn't believe I could make such things at first.

I used left overs ribbons for the topiary, wrap the wooden K letter with yarn and last but not least, cutting left overs scrapbook paper to create the vintage looking bunting.

Snap snap, it's the Minnie Mouse vintage pink and lime party!!!! Little Kasya's turning One!!

I chose the word 'It's the milky mouse' for the milk and 'mouse mallow' for the marshmallow so it sounded a bit like Mickey and Minnie Mouse. hihihihiihihi. Ooow and I do wanna share the labels for the Minnie Mouse themed party!!!!, just click here.

I had such lovely time decorating the party :)
