A Birthday Celebration

My son recently turned 2. There is a lot going on in our lives right now so I made the difficult decision to keep his birthday simple. By simple I mean not at our house, no friends, and a small budget. I had a fun theme already picked out, but I am thinking of maybe having a friend party in a few months when this busy time has calmed. There is no rule that says a child’s birthday must be celebrated in his birth month is there?

Since we went to a play place with grandparents I made my motto, just because it’s at a play place doesn’t mean it has to be ugly. Although the table tops were tacky, the carpet yucky, and the walls too bright I think I made it work for our small group.

Our table had a table cloth, a picture of the birthday boy, a number 2 and of course the cake. Simple and personal.

Favors were sugar cookies shaped like stars and the number 2.

  1. Simple but darling, Carri. Great job. You are so creative. The cake is wonderful! I bet it was a really fun-low key-time! Those are needed now and then.

  2. I love it! Where did you find that “Thanks” print? I could really use that and I love how elegant it looks. Once I can afford it, I would LOVE to put you to work on some of my parties!
