Ivy’s flower fairy birthday party (see inspiration board here) was a huge hit! We had the cutest little fairies running around, great treats and apps, friends, family, and perfect weather! Her second birthday party was so much fun and we always like spending time with friends and family. Most of all, I love seeing Ivy smile and giggle for two hours straight! That’s the best :)
Tassel Garland // Floral Garland // Gold Happy Birthday // Circle Pink and Gold Garland // Flag Felt Garland // Pink and Hot Pink Circle Felt Garland // Pink Floral Tablecloth // Pink Paper Cups // #2 Pink Balloon // Pink and Purple Balloons // Beverage Dispenser (sold out similar here) and stand //
Thankfully, I had almost all of the decor already from Ivy’s 1st birthday party and just some random garlands I have in Ivy’s playroom or bedroom, so really all I had to buy were the balloons and tablecloth, which was great! I tried to stick with my floral fairy pink theme and I think it turned out! :)
The cake was from The Cake Lady (inspiration photo here) – it was gorgeous AND delicious!! The cake stand wood slab was used at our wedding for our wedding cake :) Fun to reuse! And I made the cake topper with two of the wands and washi tape! Here is the DIY video I followed. Very easy!!! Ivy ACTUALLY blew the candles out! I was pretty impressed! Even though she may have bumped into the side of the cake a little :) haha
Here are the kiddos, minus a couple running around! Each of them got their own wings (which I found at the Dollar Store, heck ya!), a wand, and a floral headband! Ivy had a special crown I got for her that was personalized with her name on it from Mosey Handmade, it was beautiful on her! They were all so adorable! And even the mamas got a floral headband :)
For an activity, I had the kids make their own pixie dust! I loved this idea (from this party)!! I got mini glass jars (when they were 50% off) from Hobby Lobby for their pixie dust, and filled other glass jars with glitter! Then we super glued the cork lids shut. It was so messy and there was glitter everywhere, but the kids LOVED it! And I had fun too :) Thankfully it was outside!
Next were presents! She got a TON of dolls and barbies! She was in heaven! And the best part was she got new sleeper gowns! Ivy has been OBSESSED with this Anna and Elsa Frozen gown that my mom got her a month ago, and she MUST sleep in it during naps and bedtime (you know how the toddler negotiation thing goes…). So my friend Shannon got her a Cinderella and Minnie Mouse one, she LOVES them!
John and I got her this bounce house! It’s going to make winter tolerable! It can fit in our basement, which is soooo fabulous.
And Leo was in good hands during the party with Shannon!
Overall, Ivy was in heaven being as girly as possible! She’s turned into quite the little princess and is much more girlier than I ever was! I will have to say though, that it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen #bigsmile
2 more days until she’s actually 2!!! I think we might take her to Chuck E Cheeses for her birthday on Thursday. They still sell beer there, right?? ;)
Happy 2nd Birthday Baby Girl!!! We love you!
