How to Throw A DIY Mickey Mouse Themed Birthday Party

Its party time! I successfully planned and threw the girls a Mickey Mouse themed birthday party. In the blink of an eye, I now have a three year old and a one year old. I can’t believe Celine is one already. This past year has been a sleepless one but enjoyable as well. Having two little girls makes everything about my day better and I am thrilled to watch them grow up together. In addition to growing up together, they will get to celebrate their birthdays together. Both of my girls birthdays are in November, I just happen to plan for that so I could have winters off! Since their birthdays are only eighteen days apart, I plan of having one party for both of them for as long as I can get away with it. Last week was the first of many and it was a special one since Celine turned one!

Mickey Mouse diy birthday party

All I wanted was a party where the little kids could enjoy themselves. I said I didn’t want to do a lot of work for it but of course, in the end, I still wanted to create everything. I chose Mickey Mouse as a theme because we all went to Disney World earlier this year for the first time. I was able to diy the Mickey Mouse themed table and created the cake toppers and name tags for the gift bags. I enjoy being crafty and look forward to doing more crafts when the girls are bigger. Amazon is a lifesaver and I was able to easily find all the items I needed to diy a Mickey Mouse themed party. I used my Cricut to make the cake toppers and gift tags. My time is tight but I find time in the evenings when the girls are asleep to get everything accomplished. It has worked so far. The girls and all the kids had a great time playing and munching on pizza. Finally, I keep saying that I will keep it simple next year, but we’ll see what happens.

Mickey Mouse diy birthday decor

To get started for the table decor, I first purchased the following items:

  • Red tablecoth
  • 2 yellow cake stands
  • 2 black table runners
  • black and white stripe backdrop
  • tissue paper
  • cardstock
  • paper plates
  • mickey ears

Creating the diy table decor for the Mickey Mouse themed birthday party was easier than I expected. I used the red tablecloth as the main covering and then used the two table runners to imitate Mickey’s pants. I taped a paper plate at the end of each one to replicate the buttons. Then, on the striped backdrop, I made paper tissue fans from the yellow and red pieces of tissue paper. For the center of the backdrop, I used a large tissue fan and glued a Minnie Mouse head with the bow that I cut out with my Cricut machine. Since I had two cakes, one for each of my daughters, I used 2 yellow cake stands on each side of the table for the cakes. I got Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears for each of the kids and placed those throughout the table.

For the diy Mickey Mouse themed gift bags and cake toppers, I purchased card stock and yellow gift bags. I filled the bags with Mickey Mouse puzzles and counting cards I found at the dollar store! I cut out small versions of the Mickey Mouse head shape and added bows for some of the bags. With the Cricut machine, I wrote each kids’ name on the tag and used a glue stick to attach them to the yellow bags.

  • glitter cardstock
  • yellow gift bags
  • Cricut machine
  • gold pens for Cricut

To make the diy Mickey Mouse inspired cake toppers, I downloaded the Walter font from and used that in Design Space for Cricut. I cut out even smaller versions of Mickey Mouse head and added bows to them. With the Cricut machine, I cut out the words “one’ and “three” from the red glitter cardstock. Then I used a glue gun to add the Mickey Mouse head to the side and glued each one to a skewer to place it in the cake.

With all the birthday party preparation, I almost forgot to purchase outfits for the girls to wear for their party. Luckily I found outfits the Wednesday before and they were delivered just in time. Chloe is not big into dresses right now but I am able to convince her to wear tights with the tulle skirt.

Chloe’s outfit was a sweater and polka dot pants, you can find here.

Celine wore a Minnie Mouse inspired dress, found here.
