The Birthday Party!!

Brett's First Birthday was 2 weeks ago and it was a HUGE success! I seriously think Christmas might be disappointing after such a great party. 

Brett LOVES Mickey mouse so of course that had the be the theme. I set up the cake table the night before and when he saw it he got very excited and kept pointing at it, screaming "diti, diti!" (that's how he says Mickey.)

I am not the most crafty person, so I didn't even tempt myself with home-made pom-poms, or fancy cupcakes...I did attempt to make mickey mouse cookies with a cut out and even those were a disaster so I'm glad I left the baking to the wonderful bakery down the street :).
I had envisioned a smash cake for Brett with Mickey on it, but unfortunately my Bakery doesn't have Disney rights, so my request was UN-fulfilled, but we made do! I had the bakery do Mickey cupcakes...well kinda....I had to bring the cupcake wrappers that had Mickey on them, and the mickey shaped sprinkles but it worked out.

Here are the pics from Brett's big day!
