Sugar and spice and everything nice is replaced by soft pink, polka dots, and bows. Various layers of sweetness enhance this simple, baby soft tablescape.
The important elements of this party scene include everything Mickey in a bold color palette.

Take the color scheme a step further by dressing up the food using color coordinated vessels.
Little boy blue.

Mickey Mouse Party Supplies
It all started with a mouse.
Your Mickey Mouse party supplies are an easy way to bring color and excitement to your tables. Select from a variety of plates, cups, napkins, and table covers featuring one of the world's most famous cartoon characters. If you are celebrating a 1st birthday, pastel colors replace the boldness of red and yellow.
There is no need to sacrifice style for the convenience of plastic cutlery. Here, Mickey's glove makes a big impression when handing over each place setting.
Drinking in the theme.
Design a beverage station that's all about Mickey. The dispensers, cups, and sippy cups drink in the Mickey birthday theme. The large cutout brings in bold color while proudly displaying the birthday boy's initials.
Punch up the cups.
Add some punch to your cups with white button stickers for a casual and pretty presentation. The bucket of black and white straws fits in seamlessly with the Mickey Mouse birthday theme.
That looks like fun.
This decidedly Mickey punch presentation is the perfect way for kids to serve themselves. Here, the removable ice chamber provides the ideal way to show off Mickey themed ice cubes. A beverage dispenser is a must have party essential, since it can be redecorated to fit any theme.
We've got ears, say cheers.

Here's what we did. . .
Coming through with flying colors.
Get creative with crepe paper. Hanging various colors of crepe paper streamers is an inexpensive way to gain a big impact. The Mickey Mouse paper lantern completes the festive look.
This Mickey Mouse honeycomb decoration was originally a hanging decoration. We snipped off the string, inserted a wooden dowel, and placed in a red pail containing Styrofoam. The fun factor came in the form of a red polka dotted bow tie attached with a red pipe cleaner and a festive yellow number 1 leaned against the dowel. Nothing completes a kid friendly centerpiece like candy.
We decorated the tables differently--a big nod to number one surrounded by confetti.
See ya real soon.
Up, up, and away with Mickey and the gang. This hot air balloon centerpiece will have Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Goofy flying high and the kids excited to see the familiar faces of the whole gang.
Flowers stand alone beautifully, but paying special attention to the presentation can pay off in a big way. Here, a Mickey Mouse pick and button embellished flower pot contribute to the playfulness of the centerpiece. It is best to stick to one color of flowers even if you mix the types of flowers.

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake
Making cake memories.
Decorating your own Mickey Mouse birthday cake is a real treat. Mold a Mickey head using Rice Krispie treats. Pipe entire form with black stars. Add yellow stars cut from fondant to the top layer. Mickey Mouse cutouts with the age of the child piped on completes the bottom layer.
Combining mixed pastel shades with stripes and polka dots sets the stage for a first birthday bash. Mickey ears and the number 1 make the cake a real celebration of the theme.
Making the cake display part of the main event is creatively achieved here. Elevating the cake commands attention and opens up the perfect spot for the smash cake. Remember to keep those cameras charged up and ready to go when the smash cake is served.
Add an element of height and dimension to your presentation with this cupcake tower. The solid red colored cupcake liners draw attention to the cookie-eared cupcakes, while patterned ribbon adds another decorative element.
Highchair of honor.
Carry out the Mickey Mouse birthday theme in all areas that will make the biggest impact. We wanted to give our little one a safe place to enjoy his smash cake, while providing a special setting for memorable photographs. Easily accomplished here with bold colored fabric and decorative details.
Mickey Mouse 1st birthday.
First birthdays naturally create an opportunity for pictures. Here, our little one posed wearing a handmade crown in a wicker basket with colorful balloons floating in the background. Number 1 kept the reason for the celebration front and center.
Here's what we did.
All you need to make the crown worn by our special birthday boy is some felt and a glue gun. The pattern for the crown was cut from newspaper and measured to fit, then cut from red felt. Additional felt cut-outs added to the festivity.

If you can't take the party to Disney World, bring Disney World to the party. Rent or purchase a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse costume. Birthday guests will be overjoyed with the appearance of their favorite characters. What a wonderful way to add to the party atmosphere and definitely worth the splurge.
Well everybody, that's our show. See ya soon!
