Addison got everything. My oldest daughter, Addison AnnaBelle who turns seven in December, is my first born and caught me with way more energy and time than I could dream of having these days. Therefore she got it all… the fancy birthdays, the 100 page scrapbook, clothes for days and handmade hair bows to last at least until she’s 25. Poor Winter doesn’t even have a photo album. Yet. So when it came time for her second birthday, I did as I’ve done for the last two years and waited until the absolute last second to plan it. HOWEVER, with a little help from a super talented friend, etsy and Walmart, Winter may never know that mommy has a huge dose of “second kid syndrome”.
The three, and only three, things that I actually did in advance was ordering the invitations, printing the “décor” and ordering the cake. I found a cute downloadable invite HERE, and printed them myself on card stock. I think they turned out pretty cute!
As I mentioned before, a sweet and very talented friend of mine started a baking company, Cherry On Top Bakery, and created this sweet little masterpiece. It wasn’t just adorable, it was delicious too!
When I printed the invitations, I also downloaded and printed a Mickey Party Pack HERE, to use as the party décor. Cutting them all out was a whole nother story but they were very easy to purchase and download! I used them as a banner with her name, flags for the straws, food toppers and menu tags. For the table cloth, I simply cut out an 8′ piece of 54″ wide gold chevron fabric I use in my Claire Bedding Collection.
Walmart was my best friend on Saturday. I loaded up all of the party food, a cute Minnie piñata, Minnie buckets for favors, a helium machine, balloons and party favors. It was my one stop party shop! And I have to say, their cake pops and cake bites in the small freezer section by the bakery are DEVINE! Everyone thought I had ordered them from a local bakery.
