Your lucky it's in the summer so you can do a cook out. My son's is right after Christmas, when I'm out of money. Since he's still little it wasn't a big deal, I just had me and his dad and both sets of grandparents over and did a little pizza party with an elmo cake (at the time his favorite) it worked out great.

we had a big party with all our and my sons' friends at our house...and after this we decided to have small parties in the local park with maybe 5 of his close friends.something short, outside with nibbly bits is a great way to celebrate your sons' birhtday and you save yourself from having to clean up after a toddler party (veeeery messy) :)

I would keep it simple with a 2 year old. Just invite family and close friends. For my sons second birthday we decorated the house with balloons and streamers. He loves cars so I used a white table cloth on the kitchen table with a road drawn on it. We put out all the cars we could find and he and his 2 year old cousin played with it for a long time. We also did some painting with cars. I put out a plate of paint and some paper. The kids rolled the cars in the paint and made neat pictures with the cars by rolling them on paper. I made a home made cake to look like a dirt road and put some cars on top. After a little cake then we opened presents. Don't stress on this birthday too much. He's too young for organized games and chances are he will have plenty of fun just by making him feel special on that day. I just started a blog about kids birthdays, its a work in progress and not done yet, but feel free to check it out. www.missgiddys.com

We just got all the family and his cousins and friends that were his age together and had a bbq... let the kids play out in the back yard and play some games...the adults were outside to so we could all watch the kids...Benji had a good time..oh and clean up is easy because every thing is done outside....

We just had family over, for presents, cake & ice cream. My Mom and I did take him, to pick out his cake, though. It was decorated, in a Sesame Street theme, with a road drawn on top, and removable, usable vehicles, driven by Big Bird & Elmo. Naturally, we chose plates, cups, decorations, etc., w/ the same theme.

At 2, you really DON'T have to go "all out." They're not old enough, for organized party games, and they really don't get the concept of a "party," with friends, and invitations, until at least 3 (mine is 3 in 16 days, and has just now begun asking about his party). They're happy, just to eat cake, see their families, and get new toys!

My best piece of advice, is have batteries on hand, for all the cameras, camcorders, etc. See who else is available, to take pics, so you can sit and enjoy the party (and actually be IN some of the photos, instead of taking them all). Have a blast!! :)
