In July JP turned two.
So far the twos have been a bit on the terrible side, but he's also an incredibly sweet kiddo. He loves his blankie, the stuffed bunny L gave him, climbing and jumping off things, playing outside, going to his grandma's house, trains, and Curious George.
To celebrate we had a Curious George themed birthday party for JP. Simple and fun.
We always include a picture of the birthday boy or girl on the front of the invitation. Grandparents, godparents, and great-grandparents have all appreciated having a new picture each year for a frame or the fridge.
The bunting has been used and re-used since JF's first birthday four years ago. And just like every birthday, my amazing sister-in-law made the cake.
The menu I framed and sat near the food. Along with the items on the menu I also put out a bowl of Curious George fruit snacks - a total treat for our kids.
It was a fun, sweet day, and a really simple party theme to pull off. JP loved it - he loved having everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to him and he even sang right along with them - and he had a lot of fun. In the end, that's what makes a party a success. :)
The bunting was made by my friend, Katie, and she provides tutorials here and here.
The menu I made in PicMonkey - please feel free to use it if you'd like.
Wait a second...aren't you supposed to me taking it easy, Missy :P I love that picture of him next to the cake :)ReplyDelete
