   Top: Thrifted Overalls: Old Navy Shoes: Doc Martens Lips: NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst

I am now 6 months pregnant and the majority of my clothing no longer fits. For my son’s 1st Birthday I decided to finally purchase some maternity pants and bought these overalls at Old Navy (they’re not maternity overalls but I bought them 2 sizes up!) On President’s Day, Savers was having a 50% off SALE and I scored this worn in graphic tee for $1.50! Rugged worn in shirts can get pretty pricy so I like to look in the Men’s T-shirt department for gems.

February 6, 2016 was my son Rome’s 2nd Birthday. He is OBSESSED with Mickey Mouse to say the least! I began planning back in November 2015 as I like to give myself at least 3 months to prepare. Now I know many might find this crazy but for me the time frame allows me a less stressful experience and the time to be detail oriented. Might I also add that parties can be very expensive, therefore I rather buy things little by little so that my pockets won’t hurt. The majority of this year’s decorations consisted of multiple trips to the Dollar Tree and DIY projects. Being a mother of a toddler I found myself working on the party decor after my husband and son were asleep, this allowed me peace and serenity to work. I suggest putting on your favorite T.V. show or program while working (this makes the time go by faster!) For more inspiration and ideas check out my Mickey Mouse Pinterest board here.

I purchased the white die cut buttons and 5” black mickey heads to save time. With leftovers you can make a Mickey banner. Because black 5” Mickey heads were a bit too small I made red Mickey heads as an added border. You can use Mickey Mouse stickers to seal the envelopes as an added touch from the dollar store.
