Emilie’s Minnie Mouse Themed 1st Birthday Party


I wanted to throw a beautiful 1st birthday dinner for my baby girl & for 39 family members & friends. All the items that were related to Mickey or Minnie Mouse themed were not what I was looking for. So I  decided I had to do a DIY project. It was such a pleasure and accomplishment to pull off this DIY project!
