Little Disney lovers are bound to love this Minnie Mouse celebration. The best part, you don't need a whole lot of creativity or time to put it together, because nearly everything you see here is available at Walmart.
Basically the only things not available from Walmart are the props and tableware items which were already mine including the straws, however, Walmart stocks a great selection of tableware and servingware. Everything else though, Walmart is your one-stop shop for this simple party table.
The curtains hanging in the background are part of the Hallmark Party Minnie Mouse collection. They are intended to fit in a doorway and there is a cardboard sign that is attached to the top, however I decided to get a little creative and hang it over a window. Before hanging it though I cut the cardboard section off the top and cut out the image of Minnie Mouse to pop inside the window. I then attached the curtains using teal Duck tape to the top of the window.
Let me give you a brief run-down of the rest of the party table.
Last week, a blogging group I am a member of, the SoCal Lady Bloggers arranged a crafting day at The Makery. This was my first time there, but I had heard such wonderful things and was so excited to be spending a day crafting with old and new friends.
So, we crafted with:
I began with making a color-blocked wood bead necklace with The Makery.
I love to craft. I'm also a little obsessed with things being perfect. Which means that sometimes I find myself taking over crafts that my children are working on. I find myself saying "let me help with that". The problem is, I don't actually need to help, they are perfectly capable of finishing their craft project without me. I'm learning to back away from the scissors and glue and just let them be.
Our next door neighbors have an apple tree. It's right on the border of our properties, and by right on, I mean that part of the tree grew under the fence and is on our side too. The first summer we moved here the apples were very small and there weren't a lot of them, the kids ate them, but I don't think they were that great. Over the past two years though the tree has grown, and this year by far the apples have been at their best, they are large, and there are lots of them. I put it down to the constant watering from our side of the fence.
We had so many apples recently that I decided to whip up some batches of applesauce to pop into the freezer. We tend to go through quite a bit of applesauce; the little man loves to eat it, I put it in muffins and cakes in the place of oil, and it's also yummy in oatmeal. Plus, I couldn't stand to see all of those apples go to waste.
Let's get the kids to un-plug and play this summer.
Pick a theme and organize a day around it. Here are our tips for a fun dress up and play Where's Waldo? day.
Our fun Where's Waldo? day began with the kids dressing up in costumes (Flynn as Waldo, and Marisol as Wenda) that we had purchased from Costume Express.
