T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Newborn Photo Shoot Ideas

Ok, so I know I usually blog about how awesome Walt Disney World is for adults – and I admit I have been just a bit sidetracked lately – probably because of the pending new addition to our family, a baby boy that should be arriving any day now (Lord willing!)

We are already planning on having newborn photos taken with us and the baby (and our baby boy Walter too – our two year old lab/shepherd mix who was of course named after Walt Disney!), and of course I want to try and incorporate some form of Disney into the photo shoot, and I came across these ideas that were too amazing not to share:

I can’t wait to incorporate some of our little guy’s Disney stuff into his first photo shoot – I definitely want to include a stuffed Mickey, and the Mickey quilt his grandma handmade for him, and he has a little Mickey hat too!

You can find tons of photo shoot ideas on Pinterest – not just for babies but for kids of all ages, pets, and families too!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Check Out This Awesome Disney-Themed Baby Shower!

Ok – so the title of this might be a bit misleading – but I can’t help but brag about how amazing my recent baby shower was! My mother in law made pretty much ALL of the decorations – from the garlands, to the wooden letters, to the silverware holders, to the cupcake holders and the cupcakes themselves – which contain a famous mouse made of brownie inside them! Check it out:

Oh, and aside from the amazing décor – she also went ALL OUT when it came to sewing – curtains and a valance, a crib skirt, quilt, bumpers, blankets, burp clothes, a teddy bear, onesies, teethers – all handmade, and all Mickey themed! This picture isn’t great, but you can see some of the items she worked so hard to make for us! Makes me feel so special – and we are so grateful that our little guy is already so loved (and that he is getting introduced to the Mouse so early in life too!)

 

Don’t worry – even if you or your family isn’t quite so artistically inclined, you can still outfit your baby in plenty of Disney – clothes, bedding, toys and more are available at most major retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and department stores

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Some FROZEN Fun This Summer!

Ok, I will admit – I did NOT love the movie Frozen the first time I saw it, and I didn’t understand the hype – the millions of kids singing “let it go”, the mad rush and frenzy for Elsa and Anna costumes, the 300 minute wait at Disney World to greet the Princesses – it all seemed a bit excessive to me. But, I figured – I should give the movie another chance, maybe I am missing something?

I watched it again, and while I can’t say I will be jumping in that long line to greet the stars of the movie, I DID really like it more the second time! I liked it so much that I started seeking out some treats and treasures based on the blockbuster hit…

Celebrate Your Next Big Occasion with a Disney Theme Party!

Ok, so I must admit – the reason for this post is partly selfish – as I just recently found out my husband and I are expecting our first little Mouseketeer – due in October! We are thrilled, and of course I have been in overload thinking of things we need to get and buy and prepare and reading books and napping (the napping being one of the better parts of pregnancy I think!), and one thing that has already been brought up to me by one of my closest friends is my baby shower – and she suggested it be a Disney themed shower! Obviously I didn’t really have to think about that one – and she has already gone full steam ahead with thinking about décor, favors, and more! I am super grateful to have her and other friends and family helping plan such a great event for our soon to be little guy or gal, and ideas have been flying around for various things – which got me curious about Disney parties in general – as I will likely be wanting to have some for my child in the future, so I wondered – exactly what is involved in a “Disney Themed” party?

Well, the short answer is – A LOT! You can really go as far as you want with something like that, from the big to the small details – everything can be customized to fit your theme. Let’s take something classic like Mickey, for example. And start with something everyone will notice – the décor:

Mickey party decor 2

Banners, signs, tablecloths, plates, and more can be created or purchased featuring Mickey himself

Micket Party food 2

The FOOD is probably my personal favorite part of ANY party – and if you’ve got a Mickey Cookie cutter – you can pretty much make any food mickey shaped! Like sandwiches, brownies, cookies, cheese and meats for deli platters, and much more

Mickey Party Cake

Most celebrations involve some kind of sweet ending – usually in the form of CAKE! You can buy a Mickey cake pan at most craft store chains, or go rogue with your own design

Mickey Party Favors 2

Party favors are common at a lot of birthday parties and baby/wedding showers, and usually are just something simple and small – for kids you could do a goodie bag with stickers/crayons/coloring pages etc, or candy, or you could make something all on your own – like individually wrapped Mickey shaped cookies

Not sure where to start? Think about the following questions:
-What’s the guest of honor’s favorite Disney movie/character?
-What did that character love to do?
-What did they eat in that movie?
-What colors does the character always wear?
-What is the one item that symbolizes that movie/character? (For example – Winnie The Pooh has his Hunny Pot, and the movie Cinderella can be summed up with a glass slipper!)

Once you have answers to these questions, you should have a handle on your theme, menu, favors, games, and décor! Check out Pinterest for tons of great ideas – as with anything crafty or food related, the site is bursting with blog posts and pictures and recipes to help make your theme party the talk of the town! You don’t even have to wait until a birthday/baby shower to use some of these ideas – you can do a Disney movie night, or a sleepover, or anything really!

Oh – and as a tip for those who are slightly less crafty/DIY inclined – Disney party supplies can be purchased at places like Party City – and they offer a pretty decent selection too – from cutlery and plates/napkins, to décor and favors – it’s all there and ready to help you host the perfect Disney themed bash
