Tyler's Birthday Party

Wow, I can not believe that in less than 5 weeks my sweet boy will be a year old. It seems like yesterday we were at the hospital having him. This year in general has flown by to me. I am not going to complain it can go by even faster because that will mean my husband will be back home with us.

So on to the party, Labor Day weekend will be throwing Tyler's Big 1st Birthday Bash. Crazy kid did I have to say pick a great weekend to come because it is a holiday weekend and people are able to travel easier! So for months I tried to decide what to do. My mom and I would talk about it and talk about it. I wanted something that I could easy find things to decorate for it with but I wanted something that I thought he would like also. I really did not want it to look babyish. Tyler is in love, IN LOVE, with Mickey Mouse so that has become our theme. He can even say mouse. It is super cute!

So here are some things that we are using for the grand event! HA!

1st) We are making mickey cookies but we are putting a 1 and his name on them! So excited!

2nd) The Hat! I feel in love with this and ordered it from the Gingham Bunny on Etsy. Mom and I decided we could make it but did not have the time.
3rd) Tylers Outfit! This is a example! His is so stinking cute! We do have a Red & White jon jon and it does have a mickey with a Birthday hat but it is way cutier!

4th) His Bib is similar and will match his cute outfit and hat.
5th) We are not having a cake for the party but this is a good picture of what will be happening!

6th) These are our cupcake toppers! The Cricut is going to be getting a lot of use!

7th) These are Tyler's plates! I heart them! We also have the napkins to match!

8th)Well Frankly I am in love and may or may not do our cupcake like these!

9th) Tylers Cake. I wanted simple so that he may tear into it and not have so many messy colors all over him. So we are going with all white but Mom and I are going to cut out Mickey heads out of fondant to place around the sides. We also have a very cute wooden one that we are working on to be on top! His will be cutier than this one!
10th) This is Tylers plate for him to eat off of! It is flat and will be easy to put his food on.

11th) Cake Pops. YUM YUM! We will be attempting to make these into mouse heads like these if we can figure it but may have some that just have the normal sprinkles or icing swirls.
12th) These are for Favors but not sure what we will use them for.
I want all my serving peices to be red, black, or white so I have been buying up what I find all over Northeast Alabama and online! I have found some really cute dishes and have hit up a great selection at my favorite store, Target!
