Meeska, Mouska, Happy Birthday!!

If you didn't know this about me already, I love a good theme. That being said, I had no intentions whatsoever of doing any type of theme for Liam's 2nd birthday party.  Seriously, none at all.  It was going to be a small event, just some close family members, so no theme.  And then, it happened.  My little chubby-faced 2 year old looked at me the week before his party and said, "Liam Mickey Mouse party?? like Reagan!"  Apparently, a little girl in his class had a Mickey birthday party.  Liam thought he should have a Mickey party.  You guys. You guys!  You should have seen his little hopeful face!! Then he said it again a few days later!  So, there I was in the party supply aisle of walmart, saying to myself that I'd just pick up some Mickey plates or something.  I was going to, I really was!  Then, they had a bunch of stuff on clearance...including a Mickey Mouse kit.  That's how I ended up with this stuff at the party:

No big deal, just some table toppers, cute window decorations, and a banner!  But, of course, once I start something I have a difficult time stopping.  What did I find myself doing 3 days before his party?  Looking at pinterest for other decor ideas, of course!!  Here's what I ended up with:

Subway art free printable found here on Simply Real Moms site
signs from Peonies and Poppyseeds
Also from Peonies & Poppyseeds--this site had TONS of free printables, for so many different themes! 
cupcake toppers found here on the Catch my Party site

Phew!  I felt much better once I had all of that done :)  And, since we are in Disney prep mode for our upcoming trip, we all happened to own a Mickey Mouse shirt!

It was a great day spent with our families, I'm so glad everyone could join us!  And yes, the theme was worth throwing together at the last minute, Liam seemed to enjoy seeing all of the Mickeys, and showing everyone his shirt.

So cute! We did a Minnie Mouse theme for my daughter Kate when she turned 3. You can't go wrong with Minnie or Mickey!
