We are doing a girly dino theme for DD's family party and an elmo theme for her friend party.
I can't even wrap my head around this yet. I still have 4 months though.
What are you planning on doing?
probably the same thing i did for her first birthday party, if i'm honest hahaha. i saved the happy birthday sign and everything. ;)
family party in the back yard and cross our fingers we can use the pool.
i did look up car themes since she is obessed with cars, animals and blocks. who knows. maybe i will find a fun game or something. but there will probably be hardly any kids at it!
We're doing a Milk and Cookies themed party at the park. Not as big as his first birthday in regards to the guest list. There are some really cute milk and cookies party ideas on pintrest.
On his actual birthday we are taking him to Knotts Berry Farm, they have a lot of rides for a 2 year old and its about half the price of Disneyland.
I think we are going to have a Packers themed party, bc she loves the a packers and then we can grill out at my parents house and just keep it low key with our immediate family.
We are probably going to have her party at our house---especially for the most part, we will still have a lot of people, and we don't know many 2-3 year olds for a party in a play place.
However, we need to do a LOT of work to get ready--especially in the backyard. My husband is taking days off in April & May to work on our backyard. We plan on getting her a swing set for her birthday, so we will have it set up and ready before her party as well.
We're not going to do another big birthday party until 5 or 6 year old so 2 will be pretty low-key. I would say that we'll probably have it at our house and just have the immediate family over (her grandparents, aunts, and uncles) but we just finished putting an addition onto our house and the giant dirtpile + muddy truck tracks around our whole house will probably not quite be taken care of by then (hopefully we'll have the dirt pile gone and grass seed and straw down but that'll be about it) so I'm thinking we'll take her over to a local park that has a toddler playground and have a picnic. Or maybe go to the zoo? depends on what the weather looks like.
Baby #2 will be here by May 22 at the latest. Elena's birthday is May 30....awesome right? AH!
I'm going to have some close friends and family over on June 1st so be a birthday/meet the baby party. Right now I think the theme will be "Tea for Two"...double meaning 2 years old and two little ones.
So sandwiches, snacks, keeping it light and simple because I will probably be exhausted, maybe do a little twist on Alice in Wonderland and throw some of that theme in there (like pastries that say "eat me" and punch that says "drink me" stuff like that).
