Last year by this time, I had Tinley's First Birthday party all planned out. Invitations: Check. 1- Year Pictures: Check. Venue and Food: Check. Photographer: Check. Cupcakes/Smash Cake: Check. Birthday Dress: Check. Decor: Check. You might could say I went a teensy, weensy bit overboard, but hey, she only turned 1 once right?!
This year, with the holidays, baby #2 on the way, our upcoming home renovations to prepare for said baby #2, the fact that my go-to designer friend is due with a baby boy any day, and just the hustle and bustle of life, I've been slacking in the party planning department. A little over a month away and I haven't ordered invites or scheduled her 2-year pics... what am I thinking?!
I finally was able to sit down and peruse Pinterest for some inspiration. I decided this year to go with a Minnie Mouse theme since it seems to be her favorite right now. That, and the fact that it's fairly common; something I'm not normally a fan of, but when push comes to shove, ya gotta do what ya gotta do, make it seem like it would be best and easy to carry out.
I found a lot of cute ideas, and am thinking I'm going to need to take out some stock out in Etsy! I think I have all the basics covered, and even got some good ideas for food. This year, we're going small with just our close family and friends, and of course, T's buddies. I know it will all come together and turn out fabulous!
Now, back to brainstorming.... ideas are welcome! :o)
