Olivia’s Boutique 2nd Birthday


My daughter loves two things, Minnie Mouse and playing dress up, so I wanted to give her both for her second birthday. When we decided on the theme my thoughts went to a small children's boutique in Paris so I knew she had to have one. I made space by clearing out the larger pieces of furniture in our living room and the two beds in my daughters bedroom. We used their existing dresser, brought in a velvet chair I had reupholstered and my husband made a clothes hangar fit for a children's boutique. Their bedroom consisted of the dress up area where party guests could choose from pretty dresses & tutus, earrings and necklaces made by me and a selection of play heels, gloves and feather boas. A crystal chandelier adorned the corner stage area for photos. A vanity and stool that I refinished had a selection of play makeup and a handmade tutu chandelier hanging above. When stepping out of the boutique the kids were able to walk the runway into the living room where parents were seated and able to snap photos. The living room consisted of the brunch & dessert table which featured a white tutu skirt and mini Minnie cupcakes and pearl donuts. A variety of cookies and muffins and a two tier vanilla cake with a handmade flower Minnie topper. Touches of Minnie Mouse were used throughout the printables, decor, flowers and the desserts. 2 additional handmade chandeliers adorned the ceiling along with tissue paper pom poms hanging from strands of crystals and paper lanterns. The kids table featured Minnie inspired plates and individual wrapped gift boxes that had clip on earrings for the guests to dine in style. The tiniest of details like the pearl swags on the back of the chiavari chairs were adorned with bows and Minnie ears placed in the flowers. It was an amazing day for both of my girls and all their friends. Now every time my daughter sees Minnie Mouse she yells "My Birthday"
