Tea parties are also a great way to teach kids polite manners and table etiquette in a fun setting.

Fairy & Garden Themed Birthday Party

Fairy & Garden Themed Birthday Party

A 2-year-old birthday is a big deal. We recently celebrated our little one’s second birthday with cupcakes, twinkle lights, and fairies. No one ever needs to convince me to whip up a cute little birthday party. Fortunately my two girls’ birthdays are spaced out in May and October and my little guy made his entrance into the world after Christmas so I get to plan a fun kid’s birthday party every few months. I kept this toddler birthday party fairly simple; cupcakes, a tiny birthday cake that my daughter helped me decorate during nap time, and pretzels dipped in candy melts. We had a blast! Happy 2nd birthday, baby girl!
