So I was saving this post for a while and then I realized I never posted it! I'm talking about Logan's second birthday party! This year I really wanted to do a theme rather than center around a character. I asked Logan about a couple of different themes, but he had already chosen what he wanted: a Go Diego Go! party. He loves Dora and Diego, so despite my best efforts to sway him otherwise, it was his birthday so he got what he wanted.
For his first birthday I rented out a reasonably priced beach house to host the event. This year due to tightening our belts, and a brand new almost finished family room, I decided to give it a try and host it at my very own house.
Prior to the party, I put my two cats in their very own room with toys, food, water, and a litter box. They are inside cats, and I didn't want to worry about them with all the people going in and out of the house. So I attached a sign to the door to let people know that the cats were inside.
When the party guest entered, they were greeted with this:
I didn't take pictures of the food, but guest were offered a wide selection of food and drinks. My favorite were these personalized water bottles.
All the kids received a safari hat to wear or take home with them. I bought them at a local party store.
This was the first year that we had a pinata. This pinata is from a local party store and it is a pull string pinata. I figured since I spend my time discouraging hitting, this was a safer way to go.
The kids collected the candy in bags they had been able to decorate with stickers and crayons. Needless to say, they loved it!!!
One of the biggest hits with the kid was the rainforest animal sensory table. Both kids young and old loved it!!! I filled up Logan's sand table with oatmeal (in case any kids tried to eat it). Then I stuck a bunch of plastic rainforest animals in the table.
I was able to get a lot of printables at the Nick Jr. website. I printed out Rescue Pack's face from the website. I used these bags as goodie bag's for the kids to take home. Inside was some candy, a spotting scope, some play doh, bubbles, and jungle animal tatoos. \ It was a great party. Logan was one happy boy. And I realized how blessed we are to have so many people that love and celebrate my sweet little boy.
