This past weekend we had a pink-and-red-heart themed birthday party for our Sweet Pea's 2nd birthday!
She wanted to invite just 4 little friends, ranging in age from 11 months to 8 years old - quite a range! So we tried to have a little something for everyone, keeping in mind that the birthday girl herself was just two.
We served finger foods that they could grab and eat on the run, seeing as toddlers aren't really into sitting down to eat for long, especially when there's a party going on!
I set up play stations that children could choose freely from if they wanted, plus a couple slightly more structured activities that the younger ones could also participate in (I figured the older kids would probably be expecting something more along the lines of party games and activities - so we found a compromise). So we had a train set station, blocks station, Duplo station, making salt dough ornaments station, a rock hunt, and a bubble wrap run.
And, of course, I had a great time getting crafty with party decorations and favours!
I made the heart-themed invitations,
heart rosette pins for the guests to wear,
woven paper heart favour bags and heart-shaped crayons to go in the favour bags.
And, of course, I also made pink and red heart-themed treats - stained glass heart-shaped cookies, a fun milk jelly, and a pink and red heart cake.
Let's just say we had one happy little birthday girl!
