You're so lucky to have your child's birthday in the summer!! I wasn't sure if you were asking about idea's on places to have it or idea's on themes. I am a very traditional kind of a gal when it comes to party planning. Cake, balloons, games, and gifts. Not too much fuss. You could have it at a splash park. Always great idea for summer. My niece once had a tea party for her daughter, complete with gourmet cookies, tea, and finger sandwiches. She had all the kids come dressed for a classic garden party. They played games, and ate cake and ice cream. (however she was turning 3). For my girls 2nd birthday (Feb. 5th) I had a small party at Build-a-Bear (not sure if that's in your area) where the kids got to custom build their own teddy bears and choose from tons of outfits to put on their bear. When then went to a party place right next door had pizza and other food, games, balloons, etc.The kids had a blast!!!

After doing research and talking to doc, i retract my statement of doing a bouncy house, unless you want to scrub everything down, the doc said those are the worse place for children, most don't get clean and with all the sick kids running around, that it was not a good idea. Sorry for the bad advice earlier.

My friend just did a "Candy Land" theme for her daughter's second bday. It was the most beautiful and fun kids bday I think I've been to. She made giant lollipops with 2-ft dowels, newspaper and wrapped in colored cellophane and she decorated her backyard with that. It was really cheap too bc she just bought the color cellophane online in bulk and then she stuffed the cellophane with the newspapers that she bought and collected from friends and family and wrapped them all like different candies. She got sidewalk chalk and drew big circles on the sidewalk that winds all through her backyard and made it look like the gameboard. Then she took her daughter's white sheer canopy from over her bed and hung it from the celing of her back porch and put a long table under it and on the table, instead of goody bags, she had a bunch of pretty clear cups/bowls filled with colorful candy that she said she bought cheap in bulk online as well. Everyone was supposed to just fill their own goody bags with the candies of their choice. The had a vintage-ispired sign hanging over the table from the canopy top that she made with torn construction paper that had Carly's name hand-written really pretty. All the tables just had plastic white table cloths but then she made candy-land-gameboard-inspired pieces that were sitting randomly on the tables. She also made all the girls toulle tutus (which also were really cheap and easy to make, so all the girls were wearing bright and colorful tutus which just added to the candy-land look. It was beautiful and a great idea for a bday theme. If you'd like, I can send you some pictures for some more detail ideas.
