Libby's Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

Ever since we got back from Disney World, Libby has wanted a Mickey Mouse Birthday party (which was highly encouraged by Mommy and Daddy who couldn't stomach the thought of a Dora the Explorer party!). She was so excited and was really into her birthday this year. I just image it getting more exciting each year!
Most of you all who know me, know that I have a tendency to go overboard for parties. Here is the cake table, complete with a Mickey cake, cookies and a personalized banner.
The highlight of my food this year was a edible arrangement fruit basket. I had priced something very similar for over $60, so decided that I could make it for less than $25. If the nursing thing ever falls through, I'm thinking of starting a business! Look hard to find the Mickey, flower, fruit and moon shaped fruit.
And what would a Mickey Mouse party be without Mickey shaped Rice Krispie Treats dipped in chocolate?
My centerpieces...M&M filled vases. Yummy and cute!
The food spread...thanks to Nonna, Pop, Mimi and Mema for pitching in! We had delicious BBQ, Fried Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Potatoes, Green Beans, Slaw, homemade salsa...and...well, you get the idea.
Before the party started, Libby got one of her first presents from Nonna & Pop. A few weeks ago when Libby spent the weekend at their house, she "rode" Grace's cane like a horse. Nonna & Pop searched high and low to find her a stick horse...she loved it (and thanks, Nonna! We almost had to bring it to gymnastics with us last night!) Above, Pop and Libby take it for a ride around the house.
Getting ready to blow out her candles.
Libby did a great job opening her presents (with a little help from her friends). This was an absolute work of art....Libby would open the present, Ally would read the card and Sophia would clean up the wrapping paper. What's going to work? Teamwork!
Thanks to everyone for coming and for her awesome gifts! She is so lucky to have you all in her lives! We love you all!

I am a mother of boy girl twins. I am planning their first birthday and this is the theme of their party. I searched for mickey mouse rice krispie treats and came across your blog. I go over board as well when it comes to parties. Any other ideas would be great. Directions on fruit arrangement, invites, etc.

Libby's Mickey Mouse Birthday Party was so cute. Our little angel’s birthday is on this weekend and we are super excited. Have managed to book one of the home studios NYC within our budget. Now just have to find a good planner that can plan the entire party on a short notice. Do you have suggestions?
