It was a no brainer than when my daughter, the inspiration behind TiTi's TuTu's, turned two, she would have a tutu party. Ever since she was old enough to walk and talk she would slap her thighs and babble "tu-tu." She loves them! The tie idea came from trying to figure out what her brother would wear. She adores teddy bears, so I had to incorporate those in there.
The food was simple. I decided to keep the alliteration with the "t" and create a "Tapas Bar" with bite size teddy bear pb&js, teddy bear fruit skewers, pizza bites, garlic knots, and meatballs.

As the little guests arrived, they were greeted by either a tutu or a tie at their seat. After getting dressed, they colored teddy bear pictures from a "Build-a-Bear" coloring book using bear shaped crayons. Then, we split the kids into two groups. The boys made bear masks in my son's room while the girls played "Dress-a-Bear" in my daughter's room. Each girl got a teddy bear to dress up in a mini-tutu, shirt, party hat, and other accessories. For the last activity, my adoring husband, who is the BEST party host, read Eric Carle's "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?" and led the kids in a dance.
Teddy Graham Bar with 4 different flavor bears to mix. Plus each guest received a bag of goodies including a glitter pencil, and bear tattoos.
My favorite of all was the bear garland with photos of my little girl from birth to 24 months. I also had the pleasure of having family come
It's a tie between the birthday girl in her tutu and my dress from Express!
