How to make the best Mickey Mouse Goodie Bags

img_0846.jpg

I was recently selected to host a Disney Preschool Playdate, so I got to planning right away and my favorite part of any party are the goodie bags! Since our theme was Mickey Mouse and Friends I had a lot of fun planning and finding the best goodies I could find for all the kiddos.

Candy from The Candy Jar

img_0848.jpg

First is the candy; our local and super amazing candy shop The Candy Jar, sponsored the most adorable baggies in coordinating colors to match our theme. They not only made the bags for us but took their time to help me with the colors and kinds of candy that work best for the ages of the children and the theme. I wasn’t sure what I wanted but they were super kind and helpful and made us some seriously gorgeous baggies. So next time you need candy for your event make sure to contact The Candy Jar. They also offer birthday parties and corporate events.

They are located in the Hill Country Galleria: 12700 Hill Country Blvd., Suite T-110 across from the brand new pavilion.

Mickey Chips from Good Health Snacks

After the candy was taken care of I wanted a yummy but healthy snack and of course Disney themed to add to the bags. After a bit of research I found the most adorable chips! Good Health’s DISNEY MICKEY Shaped Veggie Chips are packed with awesomeness like nutrients (vitamins!) from tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli and carrots to deliver a truly delicious snack without the kiddos knowing they are getting their veggies! I’m all for sneaky ways to trick my kids into eating healthy.

You can find Good Health’s DISNEY MICKEY Shaped Veggie Chips on Amazon, Target and several other retailers. They also offer an array of amazing and healthy snacks for the whole family!

Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies from CANDYCRAFTS

 

During my research I found the most adorable chocolate covered oreo cookies from Etsy shop CANDYCRAFTSthey sell an array of chocolate covered oreos and candies. Perfect as favors for your next party! They ship natiowide, and I most say I was a bit worried about the heat but they add ice packs and everything came in perfect condition and they are soooooooooo good!

Personalized Mickey cups from KresgeKreations

I also wanted some toys and keepsakes, but I wanted to make sure it would be something the kids could use after, nothing disposable and that ends up in the trash. After a bit of research I found the most gorgeous personalized cups from Etsy shop KresgeKreationsThey offer tons of adorable personalized high quality plastic cups with lids and straws and the Disney font just added that extra touch and made it so perfect! Lindsay can work with any design and font to make sure your next party is a hit! How adorable are these? And the best part is how the kids will be able to use them for a long time after and remember the great time they had at our party! Aaaaaaand no more wasted cups at the party since everyone can keep track of their own cup. You can find Kresge Kreations on Etsy and Instagram.

Goodie Bags from Party at your Door

img_0812.jpg

Last but not least we needed something to put all those amazing goodies in. And as an Austinite I had to go with the most beautiful and talented mama duo Party at your Door! From custom party decor, confetti, banners, costumes, party favors and more, they have it covered. I gave them my idea and they did not disappoint! The goodie bags are so incredibly well made, everything cut and glued with precision. I loved the combination of colors and how they made Minnie with poke-a-dot paper to make it extra cute! They also made the tags for the candy baggies and lots of decorations and a pin the bow on the Minnie game you can read more about HERE.

You can find Party at your Door on their Etsy shop, Instagram and Facebook.

Hope you guys enjoyed all the ideas, make sure to check out all the shops and get your party on!

I’m going to Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

Disney-OTR-2014-going

I was surprised by an email from Disney, to one of the most amazing (if you’re a Disney fan) events … the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

I kind of looked at it in shock for a few seconds, then quickly (and with very shaky hands) called my husband. He didn’t answer and I had to call him like 5 more times! When he finally answered he was super excited for me! He know how much I wanted to go.

Then the shock kinda wore off and i decided to double and triple check and make sure I didn’t misread the email. Yes! I really did receive an invite!

What is the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration you ask?

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road is going coast to coast in June 2015, spreading tons of pixie dust along the way. From dynamic speakers and interactive sessions to behind-the-scenes info straight from Disney Parks, its no wonder that previous attendees have come from all over to experience the unique magic of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road.”

I’m looking forward to learning something new and meeting people with similar interests. And there are always surprises when Disney is involved!  Follow me on twitter or Instagram for more updates. Look for #DisneySMMC to check out everyone’s photos and updates.

HP MyPrintly Event

I have the opportunity to attend a MyPrintly Event here in Austin. And oh my! this event was so much fun! MyPrintly from HP has some wonderful new concepts that would knock your socks off! I also got to see many awesome and sweet familiar faces so I was thrilled.

HPs new printers allow you to turn the pictures on your smartphone into personalized cards and printing them directly from my mobile device with a couple of great new apps. With HP Social Media Snapshots you can print from Facebook, Instagram, or your phone. Check out your iTunes or Google Play store for the HP Social Media Snapshots and HP Cards apps! These awesome posts can be printed with all the tags and hashtags you used on the post. How awesome is that?

We got to decorate adorable picture frames, decorate cupcakes, there was tons of yummy food and stations where we could print cards and pictures. Oh! and a sunday bar :p

OMG and the HP Instant Ink program is Ah-mazing!  You pick a monthly plan according to your printing usage and your printer lets HP know when you need ink and they ship it to your door for a low monthly charge. Smart, easy, convenient. Imagine no more alerts, no more late night runs to the store. No more fights because project are due the next day and it’s already 10 pm, am I the only one with procrastinating children?!?

If you are the crafty kind, like me 🙂 Actually better than me, paper crafts are honestly not my forte. Be sure to visit MyPrintly to find some inspiration on Creating Memories You Keep! From cards to cupcake toppers, even I can make some gorgeousness happen!

I can not express how much I loved this event, seeing old and new friends and leaning about the awesome new technologies from HP, was just the event I needed! Also, a big shout out to the HP team! They were super attentive, nice and made sure everyone felt included and happy!

Follow MyPrintly on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and check out other parties with the hashtag #MyPrintly #CMYK.
