I’ve been prepping like crazy for my little guy’s second birthday party. My original idea was to just buy a ton of balls in various sizes and fill our backyard with them. The kids would have a blast!
But, as I do… I suddenly got another idea in my head that just won’t stop. Now the crafting has been put into overdrive. People have been over at my house every night this week helping to make this party idea come to life.
I’m so excited. But, I’m also kicking myself not getting the idea sooner and not STOPPING with the ideas. I know better!
Follow along on my Instagram on Saturday to see sneak peeks of the party!
I can’t even believe it… but, it almost time for us to be celebrating my son’s second birthday! It really feels like his first birthday was just a hop and a skip ago. Yet, next month my munchkin is turning two!
I’m not ready for this big day AT ALL. I seriously have been planning one party in my head for about three months and then decided to switch it up entirely two days ago. YIKES. The things I do have set in stone are the color scheme and the invitations. Just need to pop those suckers in the mail! (I received invitations free of charge from Tiny Prints to feature in my upcoming party. They are gorgeous!)
So, I’m obviously keeping it simple this year. As much as I like big crazy birthday parties… I have a two-year-old that still wakes up at night. I am not going to be able to go crazy. We’ll be having the birthday party with friends in our backyard. Our food plans are pretty simple as well— birthday cake, fruit, veggies, and popsicles (or ice cream, haven’t decided that one.)
I’ve had a thousand and one ideas for themes and fun decor ideas. But, I’ve been totally stumped on the activities. (I didn’t do so bad on his first birthday activities.) Seriously though, I can’t wrangle one two-year-old to do a structured activity. How am I supposed to wrangle several? Thankfully, I have very smart friends! I asked Twitter to give me some two-year-old party activity ideas and got this awesome response:
I then put the two-year-old party activity question up on Facebook and got some super ideas:
I’ve been working on lots of little projects for upcoming parties lately. Fun supplies like ink, paper, hot glue guns, fabric dye and more have all been involved. So, I’ll be sharing some more Working on it Wednesday posts giving sneak peeks of projects. Below are some iPhone images of a set of invitations I am working on for an Alice in Wonderland themed bachelorette party. My idea for these invitations was to create a set of paper-goods that remind the invitee of falling down the rabbit hole. Lots of little surprises along the way. I’m trying to keep a whimsical feel by using lots of pastel colors, different types of paper, and hand-lettering. I hope the invitations help guests feel intrigued and excited about the Alice in Wonderland themed party.
