Grant turned 2 and he had friends that were both girls and boys and aged from 2 to 9. So, I knew I had to plan something that was colorful and would appeal to a variety of ages. The big hit was the candy buffet. I had created a couple of lollipop bouquets. A gumdrop tree. And just had several different types of candy that were colorful and yummy. And instead of bags that would just get thrown away, I bought a color bucket for each child from Party City. I wrote each child's name on them with paint markers. I figured the kids could use them for other things after the party. I rented tables and chairs from a local vendor in Orlando and the bright green table cloths. I also brought out my short, square, red tables from Ikea out for the kids to do the activity. I had a sandwich making tray, fruit tray, and vegetable tray. I even made the punch from a recipe I had found on Betty Crocker's website.
