Tell Us About You Tuesday ~ Summer Fun Week

 I'm linking up with the amazing bloggers at Freebie-licios for their Summer Fun Week! 
 I wasn't able to join yesterday, but I'm jumping in for "Tell Us About You Tuesday!"
Probably the most exciting new detail to share is that we welcomed our new baby boy to our family!  Baby Boy is absolutely adorable and his big brother adores him!

I hope you were able to learn something new about me, stay tuned for "Wonderful Idea Wednesday!"

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse 1st Birthday!

Little Guy is about to turn 2 and I've started thinking about his 2nd birthday party.  Well, since I never actually shared his 1st Birthday party pics... here is the big reveal (almost a year later!)

Little Guy's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse 1st Birthday!
We set up a small gift table on our screen porch.  I couldn't find tablecloths that matched my theme so I bought fabric from Joann Fabrics (black/white chevron and polka dots).  I found the "ONE" letters at Michael's and used Modge Podge to decorate them with scrapbook paper.  I made all of the banners using cardstock, scrapbook paper, Modge Podge, ribbon, and tulle. 
Another little banner (this one was made out of the paper scraps from the other banners).  
These are some pictures of our little food tent sent up... we had a hotdog "bar"!
I found the black, red, and white picture frames at Michael's.  I printed the signs to fit inside and embellished them with Mickey Mouse stickers.  Of course, the utensils, plates, and cups had to fit the theme as well.  I went with solid red & black (to keep costs down) and added a little pop with black & white polka dot napkins!

After the party, I used the decorations as a backdrop to take pictures of Little Guy for his thank you cards.  They came out so cute!

We went all out for his 1st birthday but, with a new arrival coming soon, I'm unsure how much time/energy I'll have to plan another elaborate party!  This bums me out because everyone who knows me knows how much I love a good theme and throwing parties!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!  I hope I can share some 2nd birthday pictures soon! :)
