Mickey Party: Food and Cake

(This might get long, sorry!)


We decided to have an evening party since I had a baby shower to attend earlier in the day. I really wanted to have hot dogs to go along with the Mickey theme, since that is his favorite saying and all. So from there I planned the menu to include all of our favorite characters.


We served Minnie Sandwiches (as in mini) and Daisy’s Fruit bouquet,

(The black two tier tray was $3-two dollar store trays and a dollar store candlestick. Add spray paint I had on hand and a little hot glue. Perfect for serving sandwiches!)


Pete’s Pretzels and Toodles’ Noodles,


Donald’s Dips & Chips and Goofy’s Goldfish.


We had Pluto’s Puppy Chow and of course a Hot Diggity Dog Bar full of hot dog add ons!


I found this cute red polka dot basket in the Valentine’s section and added the “Mouskatools” to it! You can barely see but there’s an old Coke crate (that I wasn’t using anymore) to hold the hot dog buns, I just spray painted it red.


The drinks were pretty simple, I just added a little Mickey to them with labels. We also had bottles of water.


The cake table was probably my favorite part! I used several vases I had on hand and filled them with red and chocolate candies. There were chocolate covered pretzels, red hots, peppermints and red/white polka dot wrapped chocolates. I got some paper popcorn holders and filled them with caramel, cheese and butter popcorn. The Mickey ears sign says “Clarabelle Cow’s Candy Bar” then I printed a few Mickey elements from a digital scrapbook kit.

I made the sign on the left with Mickey and Hudson quotes and framed one of H’s birthday pictures for the table too.

My INCREDIBLY talented sister made the cake. We looked at several pictures we liked and then came up with a design. I could not have asked for it to turn out more perfect! I LOVED IT!!


I seriously can’t get over it and it’s terribly hard to watch someone cut into such a pretty cake, but oh well!


I think this little guy was pretty happy with it too! He even got a little lick of icing before the party started!

Next up: Guests and Party favors!

(We’re almost finished!)
