Ryanne's Birthday Party

Ryanne is 20 months old, and quickly approaching 2. I'll share about her first birthday party, and then a few ideas that I have for her second birthday party.

Her first birthday party really had no "theme" as it was mostly family, but was just decorated with bright colors. I made her birthday cake, and it turned out fairly well. The first was the big cake, and the second one was her smash cake. In retrospect, I would've left the fondant off of her cake because it was so hard for her to get into to eat.

The next few pictures are of the food and drinks. It was stifling hot (in July) so we wound up having it inside the house when we had originally planned on having it outside. 

For her upcoming birthday, I think we are going to do a girly farm party. She loves animals, so I think it'll be fun to incorporate that into her party. I know there will be many girly parties in her future. 

I love this idea for decor. from Kara's Party Ideas

I also love these cute grab bags and water bottles! from Kara's Party Ideas

I just love these ideas for the party, too. I want something lovely, but still want to incorporate all the fun farm animals that I know Ry loves. 

Also, I'm looking for cupcake toppers so if anyone knows of a great place or person, please let me know! I can't wait to see what everyone over at Kelly's Korner has up their sleeves.

I love that cake! My daughter's first birthday party fell completely apart, so we're planning on making a big deal about #2! Of course, since I leave everything until the last minute (it's in April), I'm just now getting started planning, but I work well under pressure, so hopefully it will be great!

I'm sure it will turn out great! We had just moved into a new house, so ours didn't turn out just like planned, but the good news is, she'll never remember =) haha!

You did a fantastic job on her cake! I try to keep mine fairly simple so they look okay but they never look as good as I want them to. Cute party ideas for her 2nd birthday. I've got a whole bulletin board on pinterest dedicated to party ideas for my soon to be two year old!

Thanks, Katie! I went a little (or a lot) overboard before I realized how bad it was going to be. Next time, it will be much smaller. I have a whole folder of bookmarks, too! I can't wait to see what you come up with for Micah's party.

I can't believe that Ryanne will be turning two soon! It seems like just a few months ago you were getting everything ready for her 1st bday party! Man, time has flown! I love the idea you have for her next birthday party. I'm sure that no matter what you choose, she'll love it!

Looks like a sweet time and such cute ideas for the party!

Leah said...

I know! It's so crazy how fast they grow up. Thanks, Alicia!

Leah said...

Thank you Lori!
