There are 5 months until Abbie’s birthday, but no matter, I’m already thinking of her party. I’m just crazy/obsessive/a super planner like that.
Heck, I already have oodles of ideas for Hannah’s 6th birthday party in December–a carnival circus theme! So, please oblige me while I share with you some ideas I’m mulling for Baby Girl’s second birthday party, coming soon to a home or park near you.
I can’t decide if I should do it in a Ladybug theme or a Cupcake theme. One of the reasons I’m thinking of using the Ladybug theme is that I have called Abbie “Love Bug” since birth. I don’t know why. Probably the same reasons my parents called me “Pooh Bear.” These things just happen.
So, I’m going to show you guys some of the things I’ve found that would be used during either party (warning: much link love coming up!) and then you tell me which ideas or which theme you think would be best.
I had wanted to use the cupcake theme for Abbie’s First Birthday, but Birthday Express
was sold out of most of the items I needed (invitations and plates). The plates and balloons shown below are items they sell.
Abbie already has a cupcake birthday shirt from Gymboree. I will add another post about clothing options for the Princess Birthday Girl in a little bit.
If we go with Ladybug, I can’t decide which Ladybug theme to use. Again, photos below are items from Birthday Express
. The blue balloon and the blue & red plate are from the “Love Bug” line; the pink plate is from the “Ladybugs: Oh So Sweet” line.
As far as clothing, Gymboree has a new line out with ladybugs on it called Pretty Lady. Check it out by clicking here
What do you guys think?
