With my nephew’s second birthday approaching and party plans in full swing, I just had to scroll through the photos from Ava’s party last year. Just like any other parent, I think they’re too cute not to share! Throwing these parties made me realize how much I absolutely love it, and look forward to giving you ideas and helping you decorate for your little one’s parties, too!

The birthday girl’s outfit: flower sandals from Joe Fresh, floral crown from Tied In Twine on Etsy, tutu from Indigo, ballet body suit from Wal-Mart
Her father thought it would be a good idea to adorn her in Spiderman tattoos the day before her party! Note the sarcasm.
The happy birthday girl!

A dress up station for all the ladies and gents! My mom made the tutus from colourful tulle and stretchy headbands, floral headbands purchased from the dollar store, moustaches, hats, gloves and bowties from The Party Store. All of these items were taken home as favors.
My insanely creative mom painted two big pieces of drywall with chalkboard paint and leaned them up against the fence. The kids loved it!
Outside, my parents just set up some of Ava’s summer toys including a water table and a small swing set. There was no shortage of activities for all the kids!
