I am so excited I found this post. I am trying to come up with a theme for my daughters party for next year (I plan early). We had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party this year and it was so much fun, but I think this could be done just as nice and not have to rent costumes. If you ever need ideas for a Mickey Party be sure to hit up my site and look at the posts with Mickey or Minnie Tags. Thanks for putting this together. It is a great place to start with some wonderful ideas!

Ashlyn&HaidynsMom said...

LOVE YOUR SITE! I visit this every few days as I plan my daughter's birthday. Another thought, I am preparing tables with themes...Glenda's table, Wicked Witch table, Dorothy and Friends, Munchkin, Kansas Farm. These tables have fabric overlays for each theme with shoes from each character along with props from each. Also check out the cake topper I ordered. My wonderful friend is making a stacked cake with green butter cream icing and fondant yellow brick road going up it. http://www.facebook.com/dawn.f.harris#!/photo.php?pid=244008&id=122346177794233

David said...

Great site! We're planning to do an Oz themed party at work and this will definitely help.

No one could figure out who they wanted to dress as so I did it for them. I found a Which Wizard of Oz Character are you quiz andnow I've got 10 cowardly lions coming.

Keep adding to the site please!

wizard of oz books said...

With many new announcement about the wizard of oz movies in the news, you might want to consider starting to obtain Wizard of Oz book series either as collectible or investment at RareOzBooks.com.

Krysten said...

These are fabulous ideas! What inspiration! My favorites are the witch hat cookies and the mini apple tree center pieces!

I have a printable partyscape in my shop you should check out based on the original books http://www.clickableparty.com/products/wizard-of-oz-full-tablescape

Thanks,

This was a great reference! We had a party at church and your table was to have a "theme" I had the Wizard of Oz and all of these ideas helped get-going! Thanks, this is my new favorite blog!
