So our first born has turned 2 years old. To be honest I’m not “surprised” or feel like “I can’t believe she’s 2 already” at all. It honestly seems like she’s been 2 for a while. Maybe it’s because she’s tall, maybe it’s because she has a very extensive vocabulary so she seems older. Whatever it is we decided to celebrate with lots of colour and chocolate cake!
Eden loves rainbows so I decided to go with rainbow colours as our overall theme for the party. I searched pinterest for ideas and of course came up with a million versions of the rainbow cake. I originally planned on making one but after having Esme’s Cat Cake Eden wanted chocolate, and who can blame her? My mom’s trusty chocolate cake recipe was what I made the rainbow part out of and then Tim made some colourful vanilla cupcakes for the clouds.
It was yummy and Eden loved it! She even blew out the candles all by herself:)
We sang some songs and played Pass the Parcel (apparently a must-have game at aussie birthday parties).
We ate lots of yummy food, I think Eden was eating for most of the party. I tried to stay on the healthy side of things because I know kids (and adults) like to binge when they’re at parties, it might as well be on fruit and veggies!
We had an absolutely beautiful winter day to celebrate. It was a bit chilly first thing but by 10am it had warmed up just in time for the party.
Kate was the most content party guest.
She did spend most of the party like this.
Eden loves crafts so we made place mats. The kiddos decorated a piece of white card stock and than we laminated them! They loved the large craft table and there was lots of space for everyone. We took the legs off our table and just set it on totes, then covered with butchers paper to protect the table as well as provide more space to create!
What’s a birthday without presents?
There were some treat bags to round out the morning.
And the kids even helped take down the decorations!
Over all it was a great morning. There were of course meltdowns and tumbles but I think everyone had fun and so did we!
Happy second birthday my sweet girl!
