We survived the weekend! Our families were in town for the big celebration and lots of friends joined us for the festivities too. I mentioned awhile back, we were wracking our brains for a party theme for Henry’s 2nd birthday and decided the one that made the most sense was to do an “ABC & 123 Party” for our little Counting Captain / Alphabet man! Letters and numbers truly are his favorites things right now. To kick off the week, I thought I would share some snapshots from the party. We kept the food simple, by grilling burgers, brats & hotdogs and served appetizers and a few side dishes to go along. I DIY’d the decorations and we filled the room with ABC & 123 balloons…sweet & simple! All in all it was a great Saturday evening and we are very thankful for all of those who were able to come and celebrate with us.
A cropped version of the invite I created using PicMonkey User-friendly & FREE to use. I had them printed on cardstock at our local FedEx copy store (2 invites per page).
The simple DIY Bunting I made using scrapbook paper, craft paint & twine. The same roll of twine I used on last year’s birthday bunting. It has lasted through several projects.
Amaaazing cookies created by a friend, “A Sweet Touch by Sara T” They were a huge hit!
Another easy banner I made using scrapbook paper, photos, twine & little chalkboard clothespins I found at Michaels.
Here are my little drink tags for the adult beverage glasses. I printed numbers out on scrapbook paper, round paper punched them (like I did here) and then laminated them. After a simple hole punch & more of my trusty twine, they were tied on. Our guests could sip on their drink & easily identify which one was theirs (after setting their glass down to chase after the countless toddlers we had running around!)
The birthday boy dressed to impress for his theme!
Stealing a big smooch while he’ll still give them!
Our little guy is 2 and he has the remnants of the cake to prove it.
I am not sure if I will do any follow-up posts with DIY tutorials for any of the party décor, but if there is something you would like to know more about, please let me know!
