A month ago, Emily turned 2. It’s hard to believe that I’m chasing this toddler around! And the little person she’s becoming–all this talking! Seriously, look at that face! Is it any wonder that I’m a complete softy for her!
Opening her sparkly blue Toms
Planning her party was so much fun! And, not surprising, I went a little overboard. Totally worth it though!
The theme was Emily’s Bake Shop. She’s absolutely loves “cooking” in her kitchen (it’s so exciting when they fall in love with a previous present), and it was so fun to see something she enjoys so much be part of the party.
I kept the menu really simple this time. Veggies and hummus, trail mix bar, sugar cookies, fruit, chips and salsa, lemonade. Plus the kids got to decorate their own cupcakes. I’ll be honest, I used cream cheese frosting from a tub. Just lots of food coloring to make it bright.
Trail Mix Bar: Honey Nut Cheerios, Chex, Reeses Cereal, pretzels, M&Ms, chocolate chips, Goldfish, coconut, raisins, peanuts The bags are white lunch bags that I cut down and glued circles on.
Decorate Your Own Cupcake: sprinkles, colored sugar, mini M&Ms
Who knew that Solo had little cups with lids on them! Perfect for a toddler party!
This was actually pretty easy–just finding my colorful kitchen tools.
Jar filled with cookie cutters
The kids got to decorate their own aprons with markers.
We brought down Emily’s kitchen and borrowed two others.
All of Emily’s play food… this lasted for about 2 seconds
