Real Party Inspiration: Xavier's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday

If you have a little one, then you are probably pretty familiar with the Disney Junior show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. My daughter is totally obsessed with it and has been singing the theme song since she was just a tiny thing, so when I saw this fun Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed birthday party in my friend Miriam’s Instagram feed, I knew I had to ask if she’d let me share it. Miriam is the mama, owner and designer behind Miriam Corona Events. She styles the most fabulous parties and events, and this one is pretty great. I think my little one would flip over this theme…maybe for her next birthday!

Real Party Inspiration: Huck's Woodland Camp Birthday

This birthday party is maybe one of my most favorite that I’ve shared to date. It was a 2nd birthday party my friend Meghan hosted for her little guy Huck and after seeing just the “sneak peek” photos on Instagram I was begging her to let me share it here at Disney Baby. Meghan went with a “Camp Huck” woodland theme for the party and the party is filled with so many thoughtful details that make it feel special, but not over-the-top and unattainable for less crafty parents (like myself!). All of the food was vegan since their family is vegan and I was impressed with all the great healthy options she was able to come up with – especially for the cake! It’s brilliant! Check out the cuteness! (*More DIY details can also be found at Meghan’s blog Little Figgy Pudding!)

Ingrid's Book Themed Birthday Party

Over the weekend, my little Ingrid Grey turned 2! We celebrated her special day with a book themed birthday party! It was a small party, but still so cute. I did the decor and food myself, making it a simple, but special party for my little 2 year-old. Ingrid loves to read and I often find her off by herself, flipping through a book. We knew a book themed party would be the perfect way to throw a unique celebration for our little girl. Here are some of the adorable details…

Real Party Inspiration: A Bear-Themed First Birthday

When it comes to birthdays, I am of the strong opinion that the best celebrations are those that have personal details and a little extra love thrown into them. Such was the case for this adorable bear-themed party that Sarah Larsen hosted for her little boy Ivan’s first birthday. “As my 3rd baby’s first birthday approached, I wanted to ensure I kept my enthusiasm to celebrate such a milestone just as I did with my first two.” Sarah did a great job of achieving this and Ivan’s birthday was an adorable success – so many great DIY details and the love put into the process is clear. Check out Ivan’s birthday and be inspired!

Real Party Inspiration: Rooney's Golden Birthday Celebration!

I love the theme behind today’s party! When blogger Kelsey Williams was thinking of themes for her daughter Rooney’s second birthday party she came up with something pretty fun. “I realized she would be turning two on the 2nd. This is called a golden birthday and is very popular in the Midwest, so I went with golds and yellows for the decorations.” Such a great idea! And even if your little one won’t be celebrating their golden birthday at such a young age, the gold color scheme is a super cute idea for any birthday party. Check out all the lovely party inspiration from Miss Rooney’s special day!
