I am both happy and sad that she is growing up so fast and I know you know what I mean since I have been sharing her with you ever since she was inside my belly (Sniff, sniff)!
Anyway, since I finished with her Flamingle Birthday Party last year (which you can btw, check out HERE), I have already decided on this year's theme. I know you must be thinking, 'why must mommy decide?'. Well, I know that somehow I can only get to decide the first 2 or 3 years of her birthday themes and then SHE will be making the decisions, so why not right?!
And as with any party, it all starts with the right invitation, which I am happy to find again on ETSY!

I edited the photo thru Picmonkey and added all the roses, since I thought the white was just too plain.
Ok, so on with the show!
Let's start with the BEVERAGE STATION..
Since the weather was sunny and warm, I thought a SLUSHIE MACHINE & lots of water was perfect for the day, and I was right since it was a Huge hit!
|Got the water bottle labels form etsy too|
And now for the TENT..
We bought this tent last year and knew it was more practical to buy than rent since we were gonna use it at least once a year ! I added the window walls on one side to block out the sun and hung inflatable teddy bear heads, Gingham flower fans, string lights and gingham pennants all around .

|My helper Teddy held out the sign for the Trailer Mix Bar|
I had bear M & M's and butterfly stickers all around as well as real apples to add for the festive display... oh, and Pinwheels too!
|Got the Chalkboard Banner from Walmart and I just wrote away!|
|The Celebrant with her cake - my friends made and gave this beautiful and yummy cake|
I also added this "welcome committee"...
|Bears on a picnic!|
|Welcome poster from Printaposters on ETSY about our celebrant|
I also rented a huge inflatable double slide! Sophia loves slides and absolutely had a blast, with or without us on this one!
|Notice my food labels? Chalkboard too from Party City|
|Aside from the Strawberry Shortcakes, and Watermelon Macaroons, we also had Watermelon pops, leche flan and Buko Pandan ( A sweet Filipino coconut salad with jelly)|
And in the midst of all these details we prepared for, is this sweet little girls who had fun with the bubbles and the slides. We hope she will know how much we love her!
Happy 2nd birthday little one!
