This past weekend we celebrated my son’s 2nd birthday with a ‘Going Bananas, Beach Monkey’ Birthday Party!
I was able to purchase the favors at Oriental Trading; however, my favorite part were the paper goods. I was able to purchase the cupcake toppers, wrappers, and banners to match my theme from The Paper Cupcake. She did an incredible job and was wonderful to work with. I actually had quite a few things planned to have laying out to decorate the tables with, but the wind was incredibly strong that day. My husband convinced me that unless I wanted to chase away my decorations, I probably needed to only stick with a few things. He was right!
I made Allergy Free Cupcakes thanks to Food Allergy Mama. She has wonderful recipes that are perfect for families overcoming food allergies. Then, I used a Wilton 1M tip to do the swirls with the icing.
I am still in love with the fact that the paper goods were able to match our favors. I’ll be using Oriental Trading more in the future! It was all about bubbles and candy since we had more younger kids than older ones.
The Birthday Boy! The wind blew his candle out for us, but he was more interested in the cupcake.
Most importantly, he enjoyed his time with this best friends.
I would consider this Going Bananas party a success! Now, we are on to tackle the terrific two’s.
