INVITATIONS FOR EVERY MILESTONE

Minnie Mouse Birthday | Glow Stick Valentines

holiday, birthdayRyann JarrardComment

The middle of February is always a crazy time at our house because  Annie's birthday is on the 8th and then right after we have Valentine's day! 

Annie is currently obsessed with all things Minnie Mouse (read: she was Minnie for Halloween) and so it was a no-brainer what the theme for her party would be.  I die cut the Minnie silhouette with my Silhouette Cameo and I think they turned out pretty cute!

However, I underestimated my daughter's love for pink! So, we quickly had to change Minnie's bow from red to pink in all the decor items.

I was thrilled when I found out that Jacqueline of Tudor House Cookies was available to make these adorable "3" cookies for me! They were wrapped up and given as {delicious} favors at the party!

Didn't Jody from JodyCakes do an amazing job on the cake?! It was everything I could have hoped for and all the guests (ok, the moms - lets face it, the kids love ALL cake) were asking where it came from! I love supporting local Houston creatives!

Here's the birthday girl herself with her new Minnie outfit from Aunt Nora and PINK cowboy boots form Nana!

And last, but certainly not least - here are the kids valentines that I created at the 11th hour! I designed Connor's Star Wars light saber glow stick valentine but borrowed a design from Kommunicated blog for Annie's. I don't know about you, but I love to do NON-CANDY valentines as my kids get PLENTY of candy at: Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and Easter!

Just for fun I thought I would include a previous year's valentine - his classmates loved these!
