Our Newest Shop Addition

Our first craftshow is over;  Peyton's 2nd Birthday Party is over;  Peyton's first trip to Disney is over... So we decided it was finally time to get to work.   We've just finished the cutest dress ever and Peyton looks so darling in it!  It's called the Aubrey and came from a great shop on Etsy called Ruby Jean's Closet.   If you are a sewer, I highly recommend that you check out her shop.    

Did I tell you that we've also decided to start ordering fabric to sell?   We've got a new shop - Little Bunny Supplies with 6 bolts of fabric.   Not much yet, but we hope to steadily add to the supply and sell at a very reasonable price.     The dress is made from 2 of the fabrics we have in stock from Riley Blake, called Indian Summer.    I just love it!!  What do you think?

Minnie Mouse Party - Part 2

Now lets look at all the delicious food that we made for the party.  And of course everything had to be named especially for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse since that's Peyton's favorite show!

We decided to have both cupcakes and a cake because to get the cake I wanted was way too expensive to get it big enough for everyone.  Plus I have recently become addicted to the new cupcake place by our house :)

The cake turned out absolutely fantastic!  I got the idea for the cupcake here.  Sweet Crumbs Bakery did great with the picture.

The cupcakes were from Kristen's Cupcakery.  They were strawberry lemonade and so delicious.  They were definitely the hit of the party.  I had originally ordered 1 dozen I thought, but when I went to pick them up there were 2 dozen.  I was very happy about that by the end of the party because there were only 3 left!  

For lunch we decided to have hot dogs because of the song on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and because they are one of Peyton's favorites.  We called them "Hot Diggity Dogs".  They were so simple and delicious, just hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls.

For the drink we had pink lemonade.  I found the straws and milk bottles on Etsy and then I made the labels.  Vwry simple and the kids loved drinking out of them.  They especially loved that they could take them home.  I overheard several kids saying they were going to use cups like these at their parties ;)

We also had some little smokies wrapped in bacon that we called "Pete's Little Smokies".  Also another hit.   I think I could have stood by this bowl the whole party and been happy!

Another one of Peyton's favorites is a plain old sandwich so we decided to have "Clubhouse Sandwiches".  Very simple....simply lay out all the fixins for a sandwich and you're good to go.  

We also had "Minnie Mac and Cheese" but somehow I forgot to take a picture.  

Stay Tuned for Part 3 
To see all the fun activities we had for the kids!

Peyton is 2 - Minnie Mouse Birthday Party Part 1

Last year, Peyton did not get to enjoy a party on her first birthday.  She was very sick on the day she was suppose to have her party so we had to cancel.  So this we year I just had to go all out.  She is obsessed with all things Minnie and Mickey and we are heading to Disney World later this week, so we thought it was very appropriate to have a Minnie Mouse birthday party.  In part 1 I will show all of the decorations that we did.  Then in part 2 and 3 I will show you the foods we ate and the activities we had for the kiddos.

On the mantle I put a banner that I made that said "Happy Birthday".  I got the idea from the pin.  I used my awesome Silhouette Cameo that I got as a graduation gift when I finished my Master's.  Then I tied strips of hot pink tulle between each banner piece.  On top of the mantle I put a vase and flowers that I found at Hobby Lobby.

I wanted to make special bags for the boys and girls so the girls got a Minnie bag and the boys got a Mickey bag.  Inside there were several Mickey Mouse Clubhouse goodies.  And I locked out and got them from the Dollar Tree.  They had a great selection of stuff for the kids.  Originally I had gone to Party City, but I was able to get more stuff for the kids at Dollar Tree.

I got this little sign from Hobby Lobby as well.  I found this play on words somewhere on pinterest and loved it.

We decided to spruce up the kitchen with these lovely curtains.  Also found this fabric at Hobby Lobby and at the last minute.  We saw it and just had to get it.  They were absolutely perfect for the party and super easy to make.  2 quick straight stitches across the top and bottom.

I loved the banner so much that I made one for the table too.  This one said "Peyton is 2".  I also made some black, hot pink, and light pink tissue pom poms.  You can find the tutorial for making these here.  In the back we have special Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse plates that we got from Target for only $3 each.  We also made a styrofoam Minnie head to put in a planter.  I got the idea for this here.  It was pretty simple to make and pretty cheap.  We already had the planter sitting around the house so all we needed were the styrofoam balls, a wooden dowel, and we used modeling clay to stick the big dowel into the planter with.  We then stuck the styrofoam balls together with the dowels and spray painted them black.  Then we spray painted the planter hot pink, let it all dry, and added the bow.

Stay tuned for Part 2!
