Squeak, squeak!

As some of you know, the theme for my youngest daughter's 2nd birthday was chosen due to her obsession with cheese :) It seemed only natural to have a cheese and mice themed party.
I based the invite and the colour theme on a cute mouse toy we found and came up with this invite.

 Party day came and unfortunately us Birkheads were not very well, especially April's older sister Ella, poor luv.  However, having already done all the prep work, we gave guests the choice of whether they still wanted to come and decided we would still celebrate ourselves :) Hope you enjoy the photos :)

Here is the cute mouse toy.

 My girls and I. April's mouse ears are actually bear ears and we got them from Design Child. I couldn't resist as they even had little flowers on the inside of the ears like the toy!

The girls and their cousins, all dressed in theme ;) The dress up shoes were a gift that was opened and HAD to be worn straight away. They remained on for the rest of the party, despite the fact that April had some VERY cute red shoes to match her dress ;)

The yummies.

Jaffas and jelly beans supplied by Perth Lolly Buffets

The favour bags all contained a stuffed mouse toy, mouse chocolate, pink heart chocolate and then were filled with lollies from the table before guests went home.

 Mummy, Daddy and April

 And one with our big girl too :)

 Dancing in her new (mismatched) dress up shoes

 Lanterns from the lovely Occasion by Design , who is also a stockist of ours :)

 Fabulous prop given to me by the ever sweet Lilian from Lily Chic Events.

When the birthday girl's middle name is Rose there really is no other choice ;)

We had a lovely afternoon, slightly low key and still fabulous, cheese munching, squeaktastic fun!

  6. Jen, what a lovely personalised party. My daughter has the same cute mouse toy that she absolutely loves (I'm not sure where it came from ours was a thrifted gift). I would love a copy of your gorgeous printables, pretty please. Aren't you so talented to make these!

    I'm curious, what are the little mice on the cheese made of? Are they eggs with almonds for ears?
