A Simple 2 Year Old Birthday
by Dana Patterson on May 16, 2013 0
Remember how I had my kitchen redone? Well, I planned to have my 2 year old’s party the day that it finished and not because it was supposed to finish that day. Because of this, I only had family at the party. Believe it or not, the plumber was there until 10:30 and that party started at 11. If you know me, I bit a hole through my lip due to nervousness.
Since I didn’t have a lot of time to plan, this is dress that I bought the girls for Disney World inspired me for the theme of Anna’s party. It made it more perfect that she was able to wear the dress at least twice too!
Remember I’m still planning this last minute. I have a friend that has an adorable Etsy Shop, Hope48, that makes birthday banners and cupcake toppers (and tons of other stuff, check it out!). She made this banner and cupcake toppers for me in less than a week!
These cupcakes are the Valentine’s cupcakes I made before with mini oreos used as Mickey ears.
I had no choice but to make simple food because I didn’t have countertops until the evening before. Here was our menu:
Subway Subs – It was actually customer appreciation day so all the subs were half off. Heck to the yeah.
Orzo Pasta Salad
Minnie and Mickey Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
Lumpia – made by my Filipino mom in-law
We also did a pinata! I randomly got Easter candy 70% off (heck yeah number 2 for the party). The kids love it! Pinatas are $15-$20 at party stores.
The party was simple, but she still had a great time! I do love parties for my girls! Remember, the little details are EVERYTHING.
Happy party planning!
