Mickey Party Planning - Take 1

So as I have already mentioned before, Laci's turning 3 in March. For her party we are going to have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party.

When planning her party I like to make my own invitations. For one I think writing on a store bought invitation is cheesy and just not cute (sorry to anyone that I may have just offended!), the ones that you can buy printed for you are just too darn expensive, so I settle for making my own. I always use microsoft publisher and just use the shapes layered to achieve the look I am going for. Last year the theme was Curious George and the invitation was the shape of the Man in The Yellow Hat's hat. It was super cute. So this year I wanted to make a Mickey Mouse head.

Below is the invite I came up with. I have cut out 60 of these on the outside of the black line, put a sticker on the back as a reminder to RSVP, laminated them, cut them out again and as a Julie signature item... put a magnet on it so that they can put it on the fridge and not misplace it.

The sticker on the back says....

Put this magnet on the fridge

Don’t forget to RSVP so
that Mickey and Minnie
know you are coming!

We will have a bounce house,
crafts, food, cake and lots of FUN!

Can’t wait to see you there!

I can't wait to have the party! It is going to be so much fun! What do you think of the invite? Sorry for the blank outs, but the hubby might be mad if I gave the address and phone numbers away. If you would like to see a closer picture go to flickr and my username is Lawson381. I tried to do the link but it was giving me problems.

I have so much to share, this is only the beginning and I still have 60 days until the party! Woo Hoo! Now just waiting for the dress I ordered to arrive so that I can take a million pictures of Laci to go with her invitation. I just got an e-mail showing it has been shipped! I am so excited!



  1. What a great idea!! I'll have to remember this idea for my kids' birthdays!

  2. I have tried SO hard to duplicate this invitation & I have not had any luck! Can you give more detail on it PLEASE!!! I can't figure out how to get the layered shapes or how to overlay the picture of mickey & minnie mouse.
    ANY help would be great!

  3. Send me your email address and I can do my best to explain it that way after Laci's party is over this weekend.

  4. oo thanks great ideas for my babys first birthday. its a pool party so i want homemade and somple thanks lots
