Not So Scary Birthday Party

I'm still in utter disbelief that my baby is THREE! We celebrated her with a Minnie Mouse themed "Not So Scary Birthday Party" at the house per her request which was the perfect combo of Minnie and Fall.

The Mystery Mouskatool was a surprise tool that the adults could use later - it was apple cider, spiced rum, cinnamon, and apple slices. I forgot to snap a picture until it was almost gone, but it was delish!

*She was so excited to have some of her favorite school friends at her house*

It was an abnormally warm day for late October, even for Florida (contrary to popular belief it's not hot here all year - the heat usually breaks by late September or early October) - so the kiddos braved the chilly pool water after sweating it out with some bounce house fun.

*Same crew as several years ago - we've just added a bunch of littles*


Ordered pizzas
Mouskatools (silverware)
Hot Diggity Dogs (pigs in a blanket)
Minnie's Bow-tique (strawberries and grapes)
Daisy's Cheese and Quackers
Minnie's Trail Mix
Pumpkin Pie Dip
Bow-tie Pasta Salad

Cake was custom made by our former neighbor and was pumpkin spice with butter cream filling and fondant on the outside. 


Bounce House
Corn Hole
Soccer goal and soccer balls outside


Mickey and Minnie Ears
Pumpkin Buckets ($1 each from Target)
Mickey Straws

Most of the decor was from Amazon, Etsy, Hobby Lobby, and Target. I was very disappointed in the selection at Party City, and all that came from there were the balloons and they lost air so quickly that I was unimpressed with those as well and will get party balloons from Publix next time.
