It is astounding how much development and growth happens in the 2nd year of life! So many firsts…first steps, first sentences, first time putting on their own shoes, first time riding a tricycle. As much as we love those first moments, we sometimes just want to just stop time.
But today, we are celebrating the evolution of time. Here’s peak at Addie’s recent 2nd birthday party at a park with beautiful vintage carousel.
A celebration isn’t complete without balloons! You can dress up these giant 3″ balloons with colorful DIY balloon tassels.
The custom pink ombre cake was from Susie Cakes. And then we decorated it with an old carousel ornament that was painted gold and a mini DIY pennant flag. The delicious mini cupcakes were courtesy of Cako.
Custom carousel horse cookies by Noah’s Sweets. They were so adorable, we almost didn’t want to eat these little pieces of art!
We had a fun DIY sticker party hat station for the toddlers. It was a great engaging activity for them and then they got to wear the new hat they made. You can buy any paper party hat, glue craft paper to the hat and add DIY pom poms to top off the hat!
