For my daughter's birthday the theme stemmed from her love of swinging on monkey bars. So we knew we needed to incorporate that into her 2nd birthday. We booked The Fun Bus to come park out front for an hour to give the toddlers an activity. From there I contacted Natalie at Southern Belle's Charm to help design the invitations and she created an adorable pink monkey with a tutu for the invitation. She also created the cupcake labels, favor tags and banner. Kori at Paper & Pigtails created awesome printables with polka dots and stripes (candy wrappers, party circles, water bottle labels, snack cups, table tents). I decided to do a dessert table as we had plenty of adults and older kids in attendance. The younger kids got mini cupcakes and the adults ate the wonderful cake from The Cake Stand in McKinney. Party favors for the kids were custom coloring books and personalized packs of washable crayons. Adult party favors were candy bars and as well as the treat bags to fill with candy from the dessert buffet. I made the ribbon topiaries which decorated the kids tables and the food buffet. I also made the tutu wreath from the front door. I made the party hats using scrapbook paper, hot pink festooning and of course a Paper & Pigtails party circle. Fun was had by all!
