Our daughter, Quinn, loves Minnie Mouse and so when it came time to plan her second birthday we knew Minnie had to be part of it. After deciding on a Sunday afternoon party with just a few of her closest girlfriends, an "afternoon tea" or Minnie Mouseka-Tea came to life.
The guests, which included 6 of Quinn's little girlfriends, all arrived in party dresses. We kept to the tea party theme with giving them each a strand of "pearls" to wear and special tea cups (with lids and straws!) to sip lemonade from. Each girl also had a pair of Minnie Mouse ears that was customized with a gold glitter monogram at their place setting. Of course the birthday girl refused to wear hers but the other girls loved them.
We served mouse shaped pimento cheese and cream and jam sandwiches and fruit with yogurt dipping sauce (served in mini tea cups) for an afternoon snack.
The desserts were the star of the show. We served strawberry cupcakes from our favorite bakery, Sugar and had custom tea cup mouseka-tea sugar cookies made at another local favorite, Bakies.
After the snacks and drinks the girls played in the backyard with beach balls and Quinn's new playhouse and slide, and even colored custom coloring sheets.
It was such a fun fancy afternoon and we can't wait to have another tea party soon.
