Kayla's 1st Birthday - Minnie Mouse Party Theme

Kayla just turned one on August 29, 2011.  Her theme was Minnie Mouse.  It took me three months to prepare for her 1st Birthday.  Lucky for me, I have a very talented, lovable and helpful family!  Without them, this birthday will not be perfect.  My sister, Fe, and my nephew, Joco, made canvases from the Philippines and so cute.  My sister-in-law, Sylvia, created Minnie Mouse cake.  She was so creative.  The cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious.  She made three layers (strawberry, chocolate and almond cake).  My daughter, Erica, cooked the bake zetti.  My Mom made potato salad, sweet and sour meatball.  She also made her famous lumpia aka spring roll and my brother cooked it.  I made penil and my brother cooked sweet ham.  Jessica's mom cooked yellow rice and chicken.   Jessica's Uncle made pasta salad.  My nephew, Frankie, rented chairs.  My nieces (Sunshine and Saphie), my nephews (Muy and Justin), my mom, my brother and sister in law helped with the cleaning and decorations.   My son ran around to get his friend to DJ the party and get some drinks.  Overall the party was a sucess.  Thank you all and I love you so much!!!
Below is the Minnie Mouse invitation I created using Microsoft Word.

  1. where did you get her outfit? i LOVE it!

  2. Oh my these are all adorable! I was confused between Minnie and Hello Kitty but both are fine for a little girls party since they are pinkish. But seeing your helpful Minnie Mouse party ideas , I think I'm gonna suggest this to my friends!

    I will be exploring more maybe I could add them to my own compilation. thank you so much!!
