Aria turned two on Sunday. I am so sad at how fast time is flying by. I feel like I just had her! These two years have had a lot of ups and downs. I can't imagine getting through some of these hard times without her. She is our rock, on bad days we come home to the biggest cheesy smile and the warmest little hugs. I love this little one so much.
I plan Aria's birthdays way in advance. I usually start planning a good 8-10 months ahead. I am glad I did, with the move the birthday had to be really budget friendly. I had this idea for her second birthday for some time. I never want her to grow up, like Neverland I want her to stay a kid forever.
This party was done for under $40. I wanted to a bit more, but the moving, unexpected events really took up our time. I feel we got a cute party for this little two year old accomplished!
The table was a map of Neverland.
The food represented each place in Neverland. I wanted it to be food that represented everything that kids love to eat. The table was just craft paper from Amazon, I drew the map and added cute little teepees.
- Skull Rock: Kettle Corn (this aweome skull bowl is from Avon)
- Pirate Doubloons: Lemon Oreos
- Pixie Krispies: Fruity Pebble Krispies
- Donut Arrows: Donut holes
- Mermaid Lagoon: Water
- Hangman's Tree: Apple slices dipped in chocolate with fruity pebbles
Her birthday cake was extremely inexpensive and one of our favorite kid treats..a giant donut.
Her outfit was inspired by Tiger Lilly. I made her headdress with a headband and feathers. The outfit is from Baily's Blossoms. How perfect is this outfit?
