Sneak Peek: Hellyer Family Cruise 2014

Sneak Peek: Hellyer Family Cruise 2014

I’m so excited for next month–November is always a big reason to celebration for our family! Maisy is turning 2, Justin and I celebrate our wedding anniversary, and this Thanksgiving, our whole family is taking a big cruise vacation on board the Disney Fantasy.

Our family has taken Disney cruises in the past and the one thing we always have to have is matching shirts. I’ve been working hard on what they should look like, and I’m excited to share a sneak peak with you today!

I went with a nautical theme that was kind of classic. I made sure to use the Disney Cruise Line colors: navy blue, yellow, and red.  The backs of the shirts have check marks for all the celebrations our family is celebrating over the course of the week.

Disney Cruises are known for having Guests that decorate their stateroom doors like crazy. I didn’t want our door to be left boring a bare, so in addition to the shirts, I’ve been designing what our door will look like.

I decided to go with a vintage Disneyland theme so be a little different from the generic name plates and Mickey ears typically seen on some stateroom doors. My secret goal is to have someone snatch one of my magnets off our door–talk about a compliment–some one likes your designs so much, they just have to have them!

I made a large “Pippinland” sign, and a few park favorites including Legacy FastPasses and Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars. Justin, Maisy and I also have Cast Member-inspired name tags.

I also put together two little magnets for our family’s two celebrations: Our Anniversary and Maisy’s Birthday. And finally, I made a vintage park map inspired view of our ship’s itinerary on the high seas.

I can’t wait to share more photos from our vacation when we set sail in about a month!
