Sunday’s Snippets: Hot Dog Bar!

Happy weekend!  I hope you are having a relaxing day today.  I love sharing snippets of our lives with you!

I hope you are not too tired of Mickey Mouse and parties!!  I promise this is the last post.  I shared the details of Little Man's Mickey Mouse birthday party with friends.  Well, I told you I was crazy, right?!  The following day, we hosted a family party.  We played all of the same games and had a very fun night together!  And I loved that I got my money's worth with all of my party planning by getting two parties for the price of one!

We turned our children's party into a family dinner party!

We hosted an entire hot dog bar!

We used our old-fashioned hot dog roller again, but this we had a few more options for our guests!  We offered regular hot dogs, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, and pigs in a blanket!  My family loves bacon-wrapped hot dogs,so these were the hit of the party!


We came up with every possible hot dog topping we could dream up!  (I was shocked at how many toppings my hubby could think of!)  We offered chili and cheese so our guests could build a chili dog.  We also offered barbecue sauce, relish, barbecue beans, and vegetables like tomatoes, cabbages, and chopped onion!

Our side dishes included:

* Pluto's Potato Chips

* Daisy Duck's Delicious Vegetables

* Clarabelle Cow's Creamy Potato Salad

* Donald Duck's Deviled Eggs

* Minnie Mouse's Fruit

For our place settings, I had a Mickey ears with each guest's photo.

Each guest received a personalized candy bar.  I loved doing personalized candy cars!  I did these last year in Toy Story style, too!  What an easy favor!

Little Man is completely spoiled!  His aunt and uncle drove to Colorado for this party, and Little Man could hardly open those gifts fast enough!  Don't you love how he squints his eyes closed when he smiles??

These 2 cousins are best buds!

The proud grandparents

The whole crew! (minus me behind the camera!)

Whew. I absolutely love throwing parties.  But I think I need a week off now--or a vacation!  Thanks so much for your sweet comments about this party.  Your advice via comments and Facebook has been so helpful!  It's been fun to share with you! (Let's be honest--you give much better party advice than my husband!)

Come back this week for a new Mommy School packet! (YAY!)

  7. Looks like a fun party. You are missing a type of hot dog though. You haven’t had a hot dog until you have had a Seattle dog. It has cream cheese and caramelized onions. It is delicious!! You can even have it with a bacon wrapped hot dog. That makes it extra good.

    Where did you get your polka dot table cloths? I love them!

  9. Thank you for sharing!!! That was so awesome! Love the creativity! My son just turned 2 and he is a Mickey Mouse fanatic too… (thanks to us of course!) I just loved all your ideas!

  10. Love the ideas! im doing a mickey minnie party for my 3 year old twins and have everything almost! I sent out invites that i cut by hand. I saw you used your cricut for your mickey ears pinning game. I m new to the cricut and i searched everywhere for a design. So how did you do it? which cartridge did you use for your ears? i want to use it more- but i feel so limited! thx for your input angi

    • Hi Angi! I love the Cricut and Silhouette! BUT I do not use the Cricut cartridges. Instead, I design my own graphics in Photoshop Elements and then cut them out in a software (which I have found is no longer available) called Sure Cuts a Lot. I know that doesn’t exactly help a lot with your party planning. But I can tell you that if you are looking for the ability to cut out just about anything under the sun–without buying the cartridges–I would definitely look into the Silhouette. They have an image library that does NOT disappoint…. you can find ANYTHING you are looking for and only pay for what you need. That is just my two cents 🙂
