I can't plan birthday parties like this every year for all three of my kids, so the hubby and I kinda decided when Connor was born that we'd throw big First Birthday's and then maybe wait a few years. I scoured pinterest for twin theme ideas when I was pregnant, then when they arrived, I settled on a Mickey/ Minnie theme. They actually have some "kits" at party stores with Mickey and Minnie stuff, but I wanted to do my own version of them. So I kinda mixed and matched some stuff together. We also picked the theme because we knew we were going to Disneyland this summer and thought since we were going to be gearing Connor up for Disneyland, it'd be perfect to get all the kids excited about Mickey and Minnie. *A lot of these photos are from instagram!* I will do a separate post with pictures from the birthday party (with actual people in it). These are just the crafts and details!
HERE). My sister, my mom, and I whipped them out on Tuesday the week before the party. It wasn't hard at all, but it was a little time consuming to make 14 of them (we started at about 6:45 and ended at 10pm with 3 of us). But like I said, I really think they were worth the trouble because they turned out so darn cute!
The smash cakes were done by our amazing neighbor (who did Mr. Howard's graduation cake too and Connor's first birthday cake and cupcakes and Cole's first birthday cake). We loved them!!
