As I write this post I am slightly in tears! My baby girl will be three on the 23rd of this month so I thought it would be nice to take a look at her 2nd birthday. She was really into Elmo at the time so we went with that.
Like with her 1st birthday (click to see post) I chose to make it a kid friendly event. No loud obscene music and no alcohol which are pretty typical with Hispanic parties lol. We hosted her party at Time 2 Party in Montclair, NJ. I really loved this location they provided an Elmo, music, face painting and many games/ activities for the children. Negatives; they only give you just 15 minutes before your event to decorate and it has a 2hr time limit. I felt a bit rushed other than that its a lovely location and the staff was very sweet.
I purchased her invitations from an Etsy seller.
It took lots of back and forth to get almost exactly what I wanted. There were a few bumps but this Etsy seller was very kind and very talented.
I made custom labels and stuck them in the center of small assorted color gift bags from Party City as a two in one souvenir and candy bag for the piñata
I was looking for party hat ideas and came across these Elmo visors. I bought red visors, googley eyes and orange foam at Michael's. I got one orange puff ball to make Naliya's party hat a little bit more special.
Custom pieces can get really expensive on Etsy so I made her headband myself. It was my first time making a headband for her, I loved the final product.
Balloons I bought to decorate at the event location. I also decorated with Elmo and Sesame Street store bought party decor as well as table confetti from another Etsy seller.
I provided guest with bags of chips, juice pouches and pizza. I think Naliya had like 3 bags of cheese doodles lol.
It took her a little while to warm up to Elmo. But she had a great time. Below are a few more pictures from her party. I thought I had more but cannot seem to find them. They could be in my mom's camera. This year we are doing a Lalaloopsy birthday, I will try not to take a year to post hehe.
