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.
