Minnie Mouse Birthday

It's hard to believe that an entire year has gone by since I posted a blog about Francesca's Cupcake Palooza. When it was all over mom Nadia and myself assured her husband that this type of party was only something you do for the FIRST birthday............or maybe not. Around the beginning of June Nadia emailed me with her thoughts for Francesca's second birthday party, she wanted to do a classic minnie mouse theme. When it comes to parties Nadia takes it to a whole new level she doesn't just plan.....she PLOTS! I love working with her because she truly cares about all the little details and it shows. As I have stated before making custom designed invitations for something that is very commercialized can present it's challenges. My first thought was bow and red glitter to me those are very iconic but I felt I could put my own bit of style into it. I used a Z card in powder, paired it with a matte red envelope and bright yellow envelope liner. To continue the Minnie Mouse style I used a font that would remind you of the mickey mouse club as well as a font that mimics Disney World.

Just like last year Nadia hired Paige-Reese Designer Bakeshop to handle the cake, cookies and cupcakes as you can see Janeen totally out did herself again. I am truly amazed by the amount of talent she brings to the table, can we just talk about the edible glitter on the bows.....and OMG the cake......too cute.
There was a whole lot of love that went into this party and I am so happy that I get to work with such talented and creative people. Stay tuned for next years theme.......I know Nadia already has it planned:) Francesca's dress can be found at Mickey mouse hanging sign can be found at
