Our girl is officially two! Her second birthday was nothing short of a light-filled blush and peach dream. She and her friends had the BEST time having a tea party, playing games and playing with all her new toys. I seriously never knew a toddler birthday party could be so fun!
The theme was a Minnie Mouse tea party, since those are her two favorite things. I used three large embroidery hoops and attached eucalyptus and flowers with floral wire to create the Minnie Mouse wall hanging. I really wanted this to be a soft, sweet Minnie theme, rather than your typical bright colors (I’m sure we have plenty of that in our future haha). This carried the theme through in such an elegant way.
My mother-in-law made all the treats again – she’s so talented and I’m so grateful for her providing all the goodies! These Minnie cookies with little fondant bows were darling!
How cute are these Minnie cupcakes? I found the little paper tea cup holders on Etsy and they were the perfect tea party touch.
It was so easy to add some flowers in tea pots to carry the theme through.
I set up some kids play tables and chairs for a little tea party table. All the kids were 4 and under so we kept things really simple with these paper tea cups, which they decorated with stickers and then sipped sparkling pink lemonade.
I’m so glad I snapped these photos before everyone got there because then it was total chaos haha.
These invitations are so beautiful and exactly the look I was going for with this party!
She loved sampling the treats!
All of the gold partyware really helped dress things up and help a toddler party feel a little more sophisticated.
The peach marble cake was so lovely, and I topped it with a gold glitter two and one of Lexie’s felt flower headbands.
I made a little ring toss game with empty glass bottles and small embroidery hoops wrapped in fabric. The kids LOVED it! We also played pin the bow on Minnie, and I simply made that out of poster board and hung it on our glass door.
course in typical two-year-old fashion Lexie was not into having her
photo taken, so I didn’t get a posed picture really, but these candids
are just as sweet and really capture her spunky personality.
One of my favorite moments from the party was when she opened a Veggie Tales book. She LOVES Veggie Tales and especially the episode about thankfulness. The book sings the song she knows about saying thanks every day, and in the midst of all her presents we could hardly get her to pay attention to her toys because she just wanted to look at that book and sing about giving thanks for what you have. It was so sweet and such a good reminder that a pretty party and lots of presents are nice, but not what’s really important. Leave it to a two-year-old for that wisdom!
While the adults munched Jimmy Johns, the kids ate sandwiches I cut out in the shape of bows.
It’s no secret Instagram is my favorite form of social media…there is just so much inspiration to be had, and I love connecting with others on IG (find me @courtneymbrowning if you’d like to connect!). This year the Christmas inspiration has been endless…I’ve loved so many posts and looks! I thought I’d share a few…
It might be freezing outside now, but looking back on photos from this sweet summer birthday party makes it seem almost like warmer days are near. Yes, I am almost six months late sharing about this party, but better late than never, and this one was worth waiting for – it was such a special…
Crib | Glider | Quilt | Rug (similar) | Mobile (similar) I can’t believe the nursery is finally done! I am due tomorrow, October 18, and everything is finally ready! I had so much fun putting this space together. I have known even before we were planning to have kids exactly what I would do…
There is so much I want to do in our new house! The great thing is it doesn’t need any work at all. We could move in, set our furniture down and be done. But you know I have more planned than that! While I don’t want to do anything major like renovating or even…
Another fun kids birthday party is in the books! I absolutely love coming up with creative themes and ideas for my kids parties and this Mickey’s Farmers Market themed party was especially fun! In fact, I’ve had the idea for a farmers market party rolling around in my head for several years, so when Evan…
