Hey Mom's, my daughter's first birthday is coming up on January 16, yeah it's 3 months away, but I know I don't want to be trying to throw things together last minute so I've been planning this for some time now lol. As far as the theme I've decided to go with Minnie Mouse, but not the typical pink and black or pink and white colored Minni Mouse colors, I'm gonna do the red, black and white. But I'm here to find out if any Mom's out there know of any places or even good websites I can order special made invitations as well as other party accessories? I've attached a picture that I got from Pinterest, that website has soooooo many great ideas that I will also do for the party. But heres kinda how I'd like it set up!
We're having an Oriental Trading Company giveaway here: http://community.mom365.com/forum/topics/oriental-trading-company-5...
Check out their website. They have tons of party stuff. I'd recommend Pinterest, too, but you're already on top of that one!

She will be one....I wanted hello kitty...but the minnie mouse has me changing my mind..lol She is my first girl and Im truly excited...I want to go all out. I have to start planning early as her birthday is just after holiday season and my oldest return to college...
You absolutley need to check out etsy.com if you haven't yet. It is hands down my favorite website for unique and cutom items! I'm ordering all things for my son's birthday through etsy. Also, it is good to plan ahead if you want a truly unique and perfect little party... I know I do! My son will be one Jan. 29th :) Good luck!
TONS of things on here! And some of them, you can use as inspiration if you're really into making some things for yourself.
I thought that these invitations were absolutely adorable. http://www.etsy.com/listing/97213451/minnie-mouse-birthday-invitati...

(sorry for all the links, I love birthdays!)
Etsy is great place to get things! I buy patterns so I can make crocheted hats to sell. =0 I saw you doing minnie for your little one how cute. I just made a minnie 3d looking hat last week for someone. Good luck getting things ready for the party! It's so cute watching them eat that cake. Mine turned one this past March so we will be planning a 2nd birthday party soon. YIKES. If you are on Facebook then there is a company called LuckyLu creations they can make just about anything.
looking like Thomas the train right now. lol... Last year it was Elmo. He loved everything BUT the cake! and yes I crochet hats for little ones. I have made a lady bug before too. lol... If you are interested there are lost of that stuff on facebook.
It was just a basic red cake. lol... I think he got scared with everyone singing happy birthday to him. lol.. He still wont touch cake. I wanted one of those cake smashing type pics and he didn't want to get his hands dirty! LOL. My page is Crochet creations by Rachel on facebook if you would like see what I do. =)
here's a couple of links for lady bug themes. I've used these place before and they were pretty good.
good luck! I'll be planning my sons bday party soon too his birthday is 1/22.
