Owen's not so scary Mickey Mouse Halloween Birthday

I am so excited to share this party with all of you because it is my nephew's 2nd birthday party! I have been planning his dessert table for months now, and I absolutely loved the way it came out. We decided on a Mickey Mouse Halloween theme for the party and desserts. I worked really hard to pull together a cohesive design for the table and decor. The desserts for the table included dirt cake shooters, cinnamon sugar cookies, spooky spider red velvet cupcakes, and chocolate covered Oreos. For the cake I really wanted to do something fun so I decided to do the characters dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes. I made all of the decor for the table including the Happy Birthday banner, the OWEN sign, the Mickey mummy wreath, the dessert table labels and paper pinwheels. I had so much fun planning and executing this table especially since it was for my favorite little guy!

 My nephew Owen loves cookies so of course I had to make some for him. The two big pumpkin cookies in the front I made especially for him to enjoy and he loved them.

 We added ghost faces to all of the meringues to add to the festivities!
 Here is the sign I made out of wood letters that I painted to match the theme.
 Last month while we were in Disney I stood in line to get a special Birthday wish from Mickey for Owen.
 My mother found these cute spider decorations for the cupcakes so we had spooky spider cupcakes, and a spider web cupcake holder for them.

 Minnie witch!
Frankenstien Goofy! 
Devil Donald! 

 In typical party fashion I totally forgot to capture any pictures during the party once I started playing with Owen. I am so bad with that! I did manage to get a few shots of him on opening his gifts and one of all three of us before we cut the cake.

Isn't he the cutest!

Love him!
Happy Birthday Owen! I hope you loved your cake. I can't wait to do it all over again next year! In case you missed Owen's 1st Birthday extravaganza you can check that out here.
