Last year for Savannah’s 1st birthday party we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme. There were lots of homemade decorations that were adorable (thanks to my mom and her cricut). It took quite a bit of time for both her and I to make the decorations and put them together, and they were only up for a few hours. This year Savannah loved Sofia the First, so we decided to have that be the theme for her 2nd birthday, but I toned it down a little to save on time and stress.
We did put up some decorations, and my mother-in-law made adorable cake pops for the occasion. I am so glad we didn’t do as much with decorations this year because the party was just as much fun, and I wasn’t as stressed! I did make Savannah’s outfit again this year. With more sewing experience, it wasn’t as stressful, although the embroidery portion was new to me!
Here are some pictures from the day
It down-poured that day, but fortunately most of the tables were set up in the garage. We still had fun despite the rain.
At the end of presents, we had a special surprise for everyone. It just happened to work out that Savannah wanted to sit with her grandmas by the time she got to her last few presents. I embroidered a couple of shirts for her gift, so my mom helped her open them.
Thanks so my sister-in-law who was in on the secret, she was able to capture some great pictures of my mom and mother-in-law’s reactions. I had my cell phone taking pictures as well, I just wish that I would have done a video instead! The reactions from everyone were priceless!
Due with baby #2 February 2016!
