People think I'm crazy for already trying to plan my daughters 2nd birthday party - but spending over a period of time vs all at once is better for me. I already have a couple ideas: elmo, zoo animals, and ladybugs.



I'm really leaning towards the ladybug garden theme, as she LOVES her ladybug pillow pet. However, I'm afraid it being early September might be a little weird as the party will be outside..



So I'm looking for other September mommy birthday themes they did or are going to do this year.

Hi there, I also did the ladybug garden theme for my daughters birthday last year and everyone loved it, she is a real outside kid so the theme worked with her, I have started planning her 2nd birthday as well so you are not alone I like to be organised. This year we are taking her to movie world then having a special dinner with all the family, and will make a cake and decorate the house with bugs bunny, tweety bird etc. Good luck

We're doing a tiki luau themed party this year. I've already started planning too! So no, I don't think you're crazy! Last year we did a ladybug themed party it was great! Plus it's not very hard to find ladybug themed party favors, decorations, etc.

I did a ladybug garden theme for Hannah's 1st Sept outdoor/indoor party and it was great. However, there is a big difference between 12 mos and 24 mos. Hannah had no real idea what was going on(lol), but I know she will next year. I still think the theme is fine. I might do Elmo next year.

I am looking at doing a bumblebee or ladybug theme for my daughter's cake this year...maybe even a giraffe. I put a lot of effort into EVERYTHING sheep last year (she loves sheep) and nobody showed up, so this year I was just thinking something small and cute. I use the baby size wilton pan for her cake so it will be super simple :)



Here are my favorite theme's for this year :)

We are doing Yo gabba gabba as a theme for my son's 2nd birthday. He loves that show.

I plan way in advance too for the same reason (and because it takes me forever to decide). I think a ladybug thing would be great! Super cute too! You could also do a more generic garden theme that includes ladybugs. September isn't too late for a summer-y party at all. I would have done that last year too (2nd b-day) if I didn't have to celebrate our son's b-day with it.

I always have to stick with something neutral but check out this blog for some other ideas:

Most are WAY over the top but you can get some great ideas from it.

We are doing a Chinese theme. The local Asian market has tons of crazy treats and toys we figure they will keep the children and adults occupied. And I mean, who isn't fascinated by magical tapioca pearls!

my daughter will be 2 in september and i'm going with the Dora the explorer theme as she is mad about Dora. i've also started to buy a few party decorations. i agree with starting to buy things early otherwise its just way to expensive and such a rush to make sure you have everything.

I had a friend that didn't really follow a theme but had different play stations setup. It was really interactive for the kids and their parents. There was a playhouse, small pool with floating ducks (plastic of course), small blow up bouncer, and balls gallore. It was a lot of fun watching the kids play. Then Micky Mouse even showed up. Her sister had rented a costume. I thought my son would be afraid b/c he is terried of Ronald McDonald. However, all the kids loved Mickey. Even the 8 mo old baby! It was so much fun.

For my son's birthday, I'm trying to plan Pirate theme event with tents setup outside and fun activities. Will see???
