PARTY DETAILS, as told by Kate

I threw a Disney Carnival themed party for my precious little 3 year old baby girl. She loves all the Mickey and Friends characters and anything princess, so when it came to planning her party I knew just what the theme would be… Disney Carnival! Mickey Mouse (Played by my husband!) and Cinderella both came to entertain and wish Olivia a Happy Birthday. I set up carnival games for the kids to play and win prizes (that they could pick out from the prize table). When the princess came she sang, painted faces, made balloon animals and even did a magic show. It was amazing. The party was so colorful, non stop fun and amazing to watch all the children’s eyes fill with wonder as the characters came out. :)

All the children were asked to come dressed as their favorite disney character and of course they all came as princesses. There was one boy in attendance… bless his heart. He was not too happy with the princess portion of the party, but she did a great job including him, even made him a sword.

I had soo much fun putting together the prizes table! Amanda from Shindig Parties To Go helped with the printables. I found most of my prizes at Walmart in the Valentines day clearance and used her printables to make them fit the theme of Mickey and Friends. I also purchased bubbles and frisbees from the Dollar Tree and embellished with printables as well. It all came together so nicely and made a big impact. Prizes included candy bars, little Disney figurines, frisbees, disk shooters, yo yo’s, sand molds, bubbles and gum balls.

Everything on the dessert table was made by myself. It was filled with chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, cake pops and a 7 tier topsy turvy Mickey and Friends cake. WHEW! This one nearly killed me! I love love love how colorful and crazy it is.

  41. Zali August 3, 2014 at 5:48 pm


  42. Mariela Lazaro Perez October 3, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    I must know how you did the backgrounds for the tables (black, red, and yellow polka dot) or where you purchased! :)

  43. Melissa Zmuda October 26, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    This is absolutely amazing! I love everything! Especially the custom letters. I’m really confused about why people don’t know that you attached dessert plates to dinner plates to make the “Mickey Mouse” plates though. Seemed pretty obvious to me. Great party ideas!

  44. Sabrina Parker November 22, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    Hi Kate,

    I was wondering how you made Olivia’s name using each of the characters. Where did you get the letters and did you do it yourself? Thanks


  45. Nikki March 24, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    Hi! Where did you get the Mickey birthday sign…the polka dot Olivia one? Thank you!

  46. Meisha April 17, 2015 at 9:13 am
