My Moose and Zee 1st Birthday Party Thoughts

Mikey LOVES Moose and Zee. He usually ignores TV otherwise, but as soon as Moose and Zee pop up on the boob tube, he drops everything, mouth wide open, drool spilling for all too see:

So I decided that this would be a great theme for his 1st birthday party! But do a quick google search and there is practically NOTHING out there for a Moose and Zee theme. NickJr has stuff you can print out, but I was hoping that there was a party favor sight that I could just get everything from. I'm looking for a caketopper, wall decals, and maybe those decorations that hang from the ceiling. I'm going to get light blue and yellow helium balloons to float around everywhere too. Hmm.. if anyone has any other ideas, let me know. I'm not going to go completely nuts about it because I'm a firm believer that HE WILL NOT REMEMBER a lick of any of it so why stress myself out? Of course I'm going to try to make it cute, but it'll just be a small gathering, with a few family members, friends, food, and fun. I'm sure he'll be more concerned with the cake we're going to let him taste that day! And earlier that day he'll have his Baby Dedication at our church as well, so it'll be a wonderful occassion. Can't wait!!

- UPDATE - (one year later)

The party was a huge success! I never got around to sharing the info - the party was simple, but perfect for a 1 year old. We printed our decorations from then purchased laminate to gloss the decorations, then we hung them up. We also put up light blue and yellow balloons, and our son's godmother made Zee cupcakes! We created goody bags filled with stickers, bubbles, candy, and we created moose and zee cookies to put in the bags as well. (We made sugar cookies, wrapped them in cellophane, then decorated the outside of the cellophane with moose and zee eyes, ears, etc. Here is a quick snapshot of our fun time:

We are currently planning his 2nd birthday and the theme is Disney's "CARS" movie. He hasn't even seen the movie yet but is obsessed with the toys, and clothing that we've purchased for him from the movie. So we're planning on getting yellow and red balloons, and "Cars" decorated cups, napkins, cake topper, the works. They have a lot of great "Cars" inspired party supplies on I'll link back to this post with pictures after the party!

  1. I've never heard of Moose and Zee and feel stupid. I gotta check them out if they are so good that they produce drool!

    I'm going a little over the top with N's party ... I can't help it. We're using a room at church and so far, the guest list is at 100. *sigh*

    Use the color scheme and build off of that, rather than using all character themed decorations (like you mentioned with the balloons). See if you can make your own decals and stickers with the graphics you find online. :)

    Can you believe our babies will be ONE in a few weeks?! EEK!

    P.S. The blonde was from high school and I don't know if I have any pictures at my house of it ... it wasn't a good look, trust me. I was thin and went tanning back then ... ick.
