Inspiration: Mr Men and/or Little Miss Party

I was so happy this morning when I turned on my computer to see Google's doodles of the day: several Mr. Men-themed and Little Miss-themed doodles to celebrate the author's 76th birthday (hit refresh on the Google homepage to see them all!) :-) I loved Mr. Men and Little Miss books while growing up in the UK. My son loves them too--I bought the whole set of books for him online from a vendor in the UK!! He He. Check out the Google doodles:

I know the Mr. Men aren't as popular in the US, but the doodles are making me want to throw a Mr. Men party! Here's some inspiration...

Party invitations from Invitesbyme on Etsy.

Party plates and cups from Birthday Express. 

Check out these magnets from goodtimepartyfun on Etsy. They'd make cool favors, don't you think?

And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these plush Mr. Men and Little Miss toys from bnwcraft on Etsy. 

Parties must have cake. Donna Makes Cakes....but in the UK.... :-(
Donna, move to the US, please?! 

How about some fun craft activities at Mr. Messy's craft table...check out these Mr. Men from Crafty Creatures...

Enough inspiration to get the wheels turning. I'm imagining Mr. Small's cottage as the venue (or, rather, my house turned into Mr. Small's cottage complete with white picket fences)...lots of Cleverland animals...Walter the worm decorations...Mr. Men lanterns...Mr. Greedy's dream menu for the party food....Mr. Jelly's jello...rides in Mr. Funny's shoe car...Mr. Bump's apple orchard...Mr. Funny party hats...white and yellow daisies all around...fluffy white clouds...fluffy green trees...ahhhhhh...guess who's daydreaming like Mr. Daydream! :-)


  1. I have a "Mr. Bump loves Gators Girls" (as in University of Florida Gators) t-shirt! I remembered them as characters in Arby's kids meals or something like that when I was growing up and reading some paperback books.

  2. Thanks for share mine litter miss here:)
