Tayen Turns One

Since last year, I've been trying to figure out what to do for Tayen's first birthday. Yes I have thought about it for that long ha ha. Themed party? Something basic? I wasn't sure until I realized how much he likes ONE show...Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Tayen loves Mickey. So after thinking about it a bit more, I decided to skip the Micky Mouse Clubhouse theme and just do a "Mickey" themed birthday party instead. That pretty much meant a lot of different colors narrowed down to four: red, black, yellow, and white. My thoughts for this party were the simpler, the better!
I can't believe how fast the time flew by!! Tayen was turning one and there was nothing I could do about it! The party was a success and I think the Mickey party turned out pretty cute!
My sister, Alli made my invitation. Isn't it the cutest? If you head to her blog, you can check out her latest post on my Mickey party!! This invitation is actually available for purchase on her blog. She also made me some Mickey subway art which she also made available to download for FREE! Head on over to Cupcake Diaries and check it out! Everyone loves a Mickey Party!
Tayen just before his party started!! How convenient that his Mickey Bib says "It's Party Time!"
There were so many cupcake ideas out there that were just too hard or too much work. I really didn't want to stress out so I came up with this simple cupcake that took me an hour to make.
We got Tayen his own Mickey cake!

Birthday Boy!
Excited for Tay's big day!
Opening presents!

Tayen got a lot of gifts from family. He was one spoiled little boy!
As for more Mickey Mouse, Tayen got a big stuffed Mickey and even a Mickey T-Shirt!
At first he wasn't too sure ha ha

Dad had to help him at first, but after he tasted the cake, he loved it!! I was hoping he would make a big mess, but he softly picked at it ha ha.
Brycen couldn't resist...
and neither could anyone else!!

Happy 1st Birthday, Tay! We love you so much!
