No Minnie Party is complete without Minnie Ears and cake!:-) Credit for this beautiful cake and cupcakes goes to "My Two Sweetie Pies"
After searching for creative ideas on pinterest, I had to create a Minnie Coupe for my daughter . There are tons of sites with tutorials and different methods. My favorties were Megan Kunkel's and The Hunted Interior.
The main thing I wanted to do differently from most sites was the ears. I didn't want to use the wooden version (although I have seen some extremely cute versions). I re-purposed an old toy that my daughter no longer played with to make my lightweight, plastic Minnie Ears (Playskool Elephant Ball Popper). I also used pink polka dot fabric (I found in Joann's fabric) and made a stuffed bow to place on top. The ball popper ears have a small hole on the left but it was easily covered from the front with my big bow. I sewed my bow to the ears using the small holes that were already in the ears, so there was no need to use any glue for attachment.
As mentioned in previous posts, I made topiaries, invitations, tutus, centerpieces, party chairs, banners...you name it and I probably made it! LOL!
I made ears with bows for my daughter and her two older cousins

Now off to plan the next birthday party! Actually I am planning a few mini parties in between. Since I love hosting I thought it would be great to host a few play dates throughout the year. I'm collecting items for a Music Mania Play Date now ;-)
