This fantastic NAUTICAL MICKEY MOUSE THIRD BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Michelle Stewart of Michelle’s Party Plan-It.

This is such an adorable and creative spin on a Mickey Mouse themed party! I already wanted to go on a Disney Cruise, but seeing this party just seals the deal. What could be more fun than Mickey? Mickey sailing, of course! Some of my favorite elements of this nautical Mickey Mouse party are:

The muslin favor bags adorned with hand-painted anchors

The adorable cake complete with a fondant rope and anchor

The “oyster pearl” gumballs in a corked gumball tube

The nautical Mickey themed cupcake toppers

and MORE!

This is what Michelle said about planning the party- “My little fella loves Mickey Mouse and anything to do with water, especially boats. One day while visiting Paradise Pier at Disneyland’s California Adventure, it hit me! A nautical Mickey Mouse birthday party would be perfect for his 3rd birthday!

To set the tone, I started with the invitation utilizing traditional nautical elements with some Mickey Mouse inspired details in red, white, aqua and navy blue. With the nautical theme being trendy right now, it was easy to find decorative items to coordinate. I even found Seagulls to hang overhead for that extra touch. I also reused several elements from past parties in the same color palette to stay within my budget. I handcrafted most of the paper items using my Cricut. I also learned how to make paper boats and sailor knots on YouTube. I personalized sailor hats for each child and hand painted muslin favor bags with red anchors and filled them with foam boats, whistles, anchor tattoos, bubbles and fish necklaces. The dessert tables were filled with candy and cupcakes along with Mickey cake pops, marshmallow cereal treats and cookies made by my friends Jamie and Theresa.”

    Super cute idea! I did Mickey’s Clubhouse for my son’s first birthday and had a lot of fun with the theme but I love how this is outside the box – great job!
