My baby turned two this weekend. My baby is two years old. Two wonderful, humbling, beautiful years.
In an effort to
minimize the number of second birthday parties we had to attend combine efforts and throw one huge bash, we threw a joint “neon” party for Ella and six of her friends in March. It was an absolute blast! But, because there were many friends and family members I decided to spare from two hours with 40 two-year olds (aren’t I benevolent!), I decided we needed to throw a second, more relaxed bash closer to El’s real birthday.
When I spotted these tissue-paper Cinco de Mayo garland on Oh Happy Day! I knew they were perfect for our outdoor bash. And, given my ombre obsession, why not an ombre-meets-Cinco-de-Mayo themed fête? I tricked myself into thinking it would be a easy-to-throw-together gathering (a party-planning malady I suffer from frequently).
The celebration ended up being a huge success! The kids enjoyed the lantern piñata. The parents enjoyed the margaritas and enchiladas. We enjoyed celebrating our baby’s second birthday (do you think I need to stop calling her “my baby” at some point?).
What sort of birthday celebrations you do enjoy most? Do you have a favorite family birthday tradition?
