….

Happy Friday you guys,

the weekend is finally here and also the pictures of Emilia´s first birthday are back. How adorable has the Minnie Mouse theme been? The cake I ordered was so cute I almost cried when I cut into it. Also the cupcakes were the most precious I have ever seen.

I wanted to share all the items and info with you guys here on the blog cause I got some questions and sharing it on here means it stays on my platform forever.

The theme I decided was Minnie Mouse for my little girl cause I think it is an absolute gorgeous theme for a girl´s birthday party plus we gave a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal to her some months ago and she takes it everywhere she goes so I thouht the theme would be on point as she already knows and likes her mouse plus her mommy is a huge Disney fan.

And I know it only was her first birthday party and I probably went a little overbord but so what. We have been in lockdown for so long and restricted to do so much I wanted to have the most beautiful first birthday for her even if she won´t remember it. There will always be tons of photos and items for her keepsake box.

What to include into a Minnie Mouse birthday party

The Cake

The first thing I always think about when choosing a party theme is the cake. I love cakes and the looks of them and always wanted to have a tree-tier birthday cake for my child. Now I can finally have those. I have found various pictures of Minnie Mouse cakes on Pinterest and ordered a mix between 4 or 5 different cakes. 

Is one cake enough or is more required. To be honest the huge cake would have been enough cause we only invited the grand-parents due to the Corona restrictions but I wanted the little cupcakes too. A baker nearby make those and they tasted so so good plus how cute are the little cookie ears in the buttercream?!

The Decor

So party decor is right up my alley. In fact all decor is but who is counting. I get most of my party decor from Pink Dots Party Store. They have sorted their items by themes and/or color and you know me – I love great organisation. 

Here is what I got from Pink Party Dots:

red/white/black rosettes / red photo backdrop garland / red dot napkins / black dot napkins

The table decor includes some things from amazon as well as etsy. These three are my go-to for every party. The cupcake etagere is from amazon and holds 24 pieces. The black sequins tablecloth is from etsy. It is huge and looked so pretty. The Minnie Mouse letters are a download from etsy. I went to a copy shop to print them on thicker paper to cute them out and make garland for Emilia out of it. To be honest I was very proud of myself cause it turned out great.

The Photo Backdrop

Who wouldn´t want a huge ballon arch occupying their living room days before the party!!! No just kidding I loved our ballon arch. It was easier to assemble than I thought and I did it with a friend of mine and to say we were pretty damn proud of ourselves would be an understatement. I got the ballon kit off of amazon plus the band to attach the ballons. The whole ballon arch concept is self-explaining once you unpacked it all. And one more thing – if you are planning on doing one you need to get an electric pump otherwise you won´t make it out alive. It still took us some time with the mashine but at least it didn´t take our breath. Since I am no one for white walls I added the red photo backdrop garland (used the same one for NYE) and really like the way it looked. This was smash cake area and it looked so great in the pictures. Highly recommend getting one of these for any kind of backdrop you would need. They are inexpensive and so easy to hang.

The birthday girl´s outfit

Our little birthday girl had two outfits. One for her great entrance including the cake smashing and one to be clean and comfortable after. I got this adorable red polka dot tulle skirt on amazon and it came with a black onesie. It is really small. I couldn´t close the onesie and I also had to add more elastic to the skirt. It is one size fits all, if you are ordering the next size there will be a two on the onesie. It was okay for us cause I tucked the onesie into the tights and she only wore it for about an hour and didn´t seem uncomfortable. The second outfit was her comfy theme look. I got this red polka dot set on amazon as well and I was just as cute as the first. I ordered the 90 cm which was still a little big but better than the other way around. 

The Sentimentals

Since it was her first birthday I printed some pictures of her as a newborn and added the date. It is a personal touch and a very emotional experience to do so but I loved going through all of her newborn pictures.

Congratulaions for staying with me. It was such a long post but there were lots of details and I had so much fun planning it all for her even if we didn´t have guests other than the grand-parents. Hopefully next year will be different. 

Wishing you a happy weekend. See you.

Happy Monday you guys,

Easter is this week and I still can´t believe it. We just celebrated Emilia´s first birthday last weekend and with Easter rolling around it will be practically Summer the week after. How about that ? Time is flying.

So for this years table scape I wanted something a little more rustic than I had the other years. I incorporated lots of natural marterials and went with the colors green and camel which by the way look great together.

Using all natural materials for your table scape creates such an earthy and laid back scene that makes dining or in this case our Easter brunch even more laid back.

We are celebrating Easter very small this year as we will still be in lockdown. The never ending story.

I am going to link everything I used below if it is still available. 

Have you planned for Easter already ? Do you guys have kids? Are you hiding Easter baskets and eggs?

Green bunnies / Golden eggs / White ceramic egg set / napkins / napkin rings  / golden cutlery

Kennen wir sie nicht alle !! Die eine grässlich gehässige weiße Wand die uns tagein, tagaus anstarrt. Jedes Mal wenn man daran vorbeikommt ärgert sie einen wieder. Was tun fragst du dich?

Streichen wäre eine Möglichkeit, aber so viel Aufwand betreiben? Natürlich schaut so eine farbige Akzentwand klasse aus, doch wer will schon die Arbeit, die Sauerei und den Gestank?! NIEMAND. Eine schnelle Lösung muss her, da sind wir uns wohl einig. Also… wie wäre es mit einer Bilderwand!

Und somit kommt auch schon Dear Sam ins Spiel – ein Onlineshop mit über tausend tollen Postern die es einem definitiv nicht leicht machen sich zu entscheiden. Ich habe auch ewig hin und her überlegt und mich dann für ein “Natur” Thema entschieden. Meinen Warenkorb hab ich ungefähr fünfmal überarbeitet bis ich dann endlich zufrieden war (es ist aber auch nicht leicht). Und was am allerbesten ist, die Rahmen kann man gleich passend mit bestellen. So spart man sich das suchen im Keller ob man noch etwas passendes zu Hause hat oder doch zum Möbelladen fährt wo man dann den Zettel mit den Maßen vergessen hat und so Pi mal Daumen schätzen muss welcher es sein könnte.

Nach ca. einer Woche waren die Drucke schon da und eins kann ich euch sagen, die Qualität ist wunderbar. Dickes Papier und schöne farbige Aufdrucke. Machen sich super im Rahmen. Diese gibt es übrigens in verschiedenen Farben, passend zu jeder Deko die Ihr schon habt. 

Ich habe mich für Schwarz und Gold entschieden, da sich das am besten in unser Wohnzimmer einfügt und einen richtig guten Kontrast zu der Weißen Wand erzeugt.

Die Bilder aufhängen war super einfach. Ich habe mich gegen ein festes Raster entschieden und die Poster versetzt aufgehängt. Ihr könnt aber auch vorher abmessen und mit Malerband abkleben wenn Ihr etwas akkurater haben wollt. Alles easy peasy.

Wenn euch das jetzt gefallen hat und Ihr nun auch überlegt welche Wand in eurem Haus Ihr verschönern wollt dann habe ich da noch ein kleines Zuckerl für euch. Dear Sam hat einen Rabattcode von 30 % für meine lieben Leser. Gebt einfach 30MADAMESCHISCHIBLOG ein. Ein schönes zu Hause muss nicht teuer sein.

Ich wünsche euch allen einen entspannten Sonntag und bis zum nächsten Mal.

Happy Wednesday to all of my candy loving Easter fans,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

how about a bar cart full of candy to enjoy along the Easter holidays ?? Not the worst idea am I right? I was thinking about how to spice up our Easter holiday because I always have so many ideas for Christmas but Easter comes a little short so I decided to decorate an Easter bar cart and you know what – it turned out even better than I imagined and I love it.

What to put onto your Easter bar cart

I always go with a few key pieces when I decorate a seasonal bar cart:

Color theme // This is one of the most important things to think of after you decided on a season / holiday to decorate your bar cart with. My main colors are pink, yellow and green.

Decor // I go with seasonal decor to make sure everyone knows what the theme is. Easter bunnies and ceramic eggs it is.

Fresh flowers // Fresh flowers always look nice and while I would go with a poinsettia for Christmas I went with bright and colorful gerberas. 

Colorful add-ons // These are things I add to incorporate even more of the color of my theme. For this example it is the straws.

Antiques or heirlooms // The adorable flower dishes are an heirloom from my great-aunt. I was so excited that it matched so well cause I definitely wanted to incorporate a family piece.

Candy // An obvious one 😉

What do you think about it? I think it turned out so well. I am really proud of myself. Also I have shared a short video of the whole bar cart over on my Instagram stories. Have a look if you are interested.

Here are all the articles I used:

Brown wooden bunny

Golden rim bowl

Straw bale

Glass egg (I filled it with chocolate eggs)

Bunny serving plate

Paper straws yellow / pin
