Birthday Planning

[deleted account] ( 18 moms have responded )

Anyone started their birthday planning yet? Only about 6 weeks to go....! My little guy's bday is on Aug 21st. We're thinking about having an asian themed party, like Kung Fu Panda or Dragon Ball Z or something. Then serving little egg rolls, potstickers and green tea. We'll probably have 2 seperate parties for each side of the family (they don't really mix well) one at our apt cabana with a pool for nice weather and the other at his grandmas house.





What are your plans? p.s. can't believe my baby's almost 2!!!!

My son will be 2 on August 1st and I started planning his party about a month ago. We are having a big family and friends party at my mother's house. The theme will be Hot Wheels since those are his favorite toy right now! LOL We ordered all the Hot Wheels party supplies we could find online and I hired a wedding cake maker to make a 2 tiered Hot Wheels birthday cake with a car track running around it! It's going to be a great party! We will have a water table, slip-n-slide, and water splash center in the yard since Jaden has alot of young cousins to play with!

Yes, I have started to plan my daughters second birthday party on the 21st. Last year for her first birthday we just had family and friends cake ice cream hotdogs .. that was about it. This year we are going to have a bouncy house and water balloons and hot dogs and lots of candy. That will probably be about it for a couple of years. We were thinking about for her 5th birthday we rent water inflatables and have kind of like a water park in our own back yard. lol =]

My daughter's b-day is on the 22nd and I started planning I guess about 6 months ago lol. I visited a gymnastics center where I thought I was going to enroll her but she didnt know how to walk on tippy toes and backwards at the time and my sister had told me they throw parties there and the hostess does EVERYTHING. So I spoke to them & sure enough I don't have to worry about a thing just bring in the food plus they put a moon jump in the gym for you included in the price & I thought it was magnificent because the price for the place was about what they charge for the moon jump itself. I finally decided her theme was going to be hello kitty I picked out her cake last month so I am ready to order when it gets closer. Her invitations are ready to be printed I just need to push the order button. I prepared pretty early for her bday last year also and I am glad I did because I am a procrastinator at pretty much everything but this is one thing that I feel needs to be prepared in advance or I will kick myself for forgetting something when the day gets here since time flies.

My daughter's b-day is the 21st as well and I don't have anything planned yet other than to have a small party at my in-laws, like we did last year...just mostly family. I feel less stressed now that I've gone through it once before, but I don't know what theme to choose since my daughter really isn't into a particular cartoon character except for Elmo, which we did last year. I went to look at party supplies today and thought maybe I could stick with Sesame Street and do Abby Cadabby since she likes her as well, but I still don't know. I can't wait until next year when my daughter can pick for herself!

My son is 2 on the 10th of August. We are inviting 2 friends to an indoor play centre and I am making animal cup cakes. We will also have a family BBQ on the weekend and I will make a train cake for that since he loves trains.

My daughter turns 2 on the 23rd. I've had the theme and venue picked out for months, but have just recently started purchasing supplies. We're having close friends and family for a monkey-themed cake and homemade ice cream party. I thought about adding a fruit plate for snacking, too. We had a pot-luck last year and it was just a bit too stressful to do every year.

Oh my...I've been planning for the last few weeks. He turns 2 on the 15th and I can't believe two years went by that fast. We are going to have a Sesame Street themed party near his grandparent's place in AZ. Destination Birthday party for us, but we did that last year so the family could be there. We are going to grill burgers and hot dogs, play pin the nose on Elmo, Go Fishin' and bring out his grandpa's horses for the kids to ride on for a little while. It should be a lot of fun and not too expensive, minus the cost of driving there but we were going anyway!! Happy Birthday to everyone's little ones!!!

For my older son's 2nd bd we did a jungle theme with a monkey cake and pirana cups (blue jello w/ swedish fish inside) & toilet paper roll binocular craft for my neices & nephews. And the ever necessary sprinkler/kiddie pool in the middle of July! And randomly, as an another keep-em-busy activity, we had a refridgerator box and let the kids decorate it into a house. Crazy enough - the kiddos STILL talk about it. figures.

We're going to have a small get together of some friends who all also have kids around my daughters age (all my family lives too far away since we're military). I'm planning on making her a Cinderella doll cake since we'll be doing a princess (or 'happies' as my lil girl calls them) party. I'm very excited about it but still can't believe she will be 2!

We are going to have a pool party at our house. The theme for the party will be trains. My son is obsessed with trains. It will probably be a small party this year...last year we rented a Water Slide & Bouncy House. This year I just hope he enjoys his Cake and try's to blow out the candles...last year he wouldn't touch the cake! :)

My son's birthday is August 13th. We decided to keep it simple with a few family and friends. We are thinking of a jungle animal theme, since that seems to be his favorite =)

Also I plan on making him a lemon-vanilla cake with decorations and cute little fruit gummy snack candies (that he loves) as a border.

We also bought him a new toddler pool, so that should be a nice surprise too ^_^

For my babies first birthday, we did it quite big and it was fun but quite stressful so we decided for this year that we will just have a family day out and play mini golf and go on the kids train and go on the kids planes(well she will anyway). It's not going to be big but I hope that it will be nice for her.

I don't know that I am going to do anything. I used to celebrate every birthday with a party, but she is my fourth child, it is becoming so stressful. At two do they really even notice yet? I will probably do cake and a small family thing. I hope I don't sound too lazy, but I guess I figure any friends I invite would really only be my friends, at two she doesn't really have her own "network of friends".
