More Party Planning - Mouse Head Clippies

These were so inexpensive and easy to make, perfect for favor bags for little girls. I found these Mouse Heads on etsy. It took about an hour, but I whipped up 20 clippies with red ribbon and then glued the heads on. Voila!

Super easy and too cute. I'm considering making a red and white dot, and a black and white dot to go along with them so each little girl will get three clippies in their goodie bags.

I'm linking up at Tea Rose Home's Link Party today

Quick Party Art

The party countdown is on! Little one's birthday is in 3 days, the party is in 4 and I'm really excited for everything to come together. The banner for her party arrived (I'll post that with party pics later on) and I wanted something fun for the wall in the kitchen. We're going to arrange the food and goodie bags on our table and let everyone eat in the living room where there's more room. To spice up the area I decided to take the "art" off the walls and switch it out with something more "Minnie-esque".

This is what was hanging there before. It's just scrapbook paper that coordinates with my kitchen cut to fit the frames. We're not 100% unpacked, so this whole thing is missing some cute sconces on the sides...but that's another post...

Here's the new "art" - more scrapbook paper purchased at Jo-ann's. The middle one is kind of hard to see but it's solid black and outlined Mickey Mouse heads on a red background. The best part? I can take it out and use it when I scrapbook her birthday pictures! Double duty!

It's all coming together!

Party planning!

So much has happened in the last few months but for now I'm excited to talk about "the next big deal". My littlest, Lillian, is turning THREE on April 1st!! Can you believe it? I remember when she was >this tiny<. And now she's a big girl who tells me what to do, how to do it, and demands for it NOW. She's a diva for sure.

Well the little miss has decided she wants a Minnie Mouse birthday. The classic colors - red, white, black. Which is fine by me, I prefer it, but there's not much out there that's Minnie mouse and not pink or purple.

I ordered this Minnie Mouse skirt from Marahbelle on Riot Cart. Brittany made up the shirt as a special treat for Lilly too! Big sparkly hearts for Brittany @ Marahbelle!

I'll update with more about the party in the next couple days. For now I leave you with this diva picture - she's calling me now to play Little People.
