Over a month late, but finally publishing this post all about Olivia’s 2nd Birthday celebration 💗. I had so much fun thinking of a theme! There are so many adorable party ideas with a pun for “two”. If Olivia got to pick, I’m sure she would have chosen a “TWO infinity and beyond party” because Toy Story and Buzz are her favorite things… But when I saw this inspo on Pinterest, I couldn’t unsee this as the theme! We bought her a kitchen set for Christmas so seeing this “baking” theme seemed perfect to incorporate her kitchen set as the main toy for all of the kids to play with. When you ask Olivia about a birthday party, her answer is, “I get cake! And a hat” *touches the top of her head* it’s so funny! I knew I wanted to get party hats for her birthday – except they ended up not being a hit, LOL! I was the only one to wear one. Keeping them all for another time.
The cake & cupcakes were all made by Sugar & Swirl – one of my friends I used to work with at a local meal prepping company started her own baking business on the side. She is AMAZING! She made the cake plus 4 different flavors of cupcakes and everyone complimented each one! The Smore’s were definitely the favorite! I ordered circus animal cookie mini cupcakes for the kids (so nostalgic), cinnamon roll cupcakes (topped with an actual mini cinnamon roll), and I ordered vegan chocolate covered strawberry for anyone with that preference.
The cupcake wrappers, party hats, and cupcake toppers were all purchased from the cutest Etsy shop – Pretty Plain Paper! She has so many different themes/designs to choose from – anything from the invitations to party decor! Birthdays, holidays, etc. I will definitely be shopping from her again. It was convenient to purchase and have the designs emailed to me immediately! Then I sent to my local Staples and cut out, taped/stapled as needed. It didn’t take that long to put everything together! Taped a toothpick to the cupcake toppers, cut out the wrappers and taped those on the day of the party to ensure they fit the cupcakes. For the party hats, I cut out, taped together, and then glued a little pom pom on top. I also purchased elastic string and attached with tape. It all held together pretty well! Just wish Olivia actually wore her hat… she was all excited to see them but always refused to wear a hat, lol!
