Tutu Cute!

Monday, February 10, 2020

Natalie’s 2nd birthday party was over the weekend, and the theme was tutu cute. It was one of the easiest and cutest parties I’ve ever thrown, so I just had to come on here and share with you all!

The dessert table was the true magic of the party. We made a balloon arch and hung this swan above the prettiest tutu tablecloth (which happens to be the tablecloth we got for my baby shower with Baylee!). I wanted to keep the desserts simple and pretty, so we dipped pirouettes and marshmallows in pink chocolate, drizzled it on some salted popcorn, and then put pink sugar sprinkles all over everything! We also made pink Rice Krispie treats, cupcakes with strawberry and vanilla frosting, and had store-bought sugar cookies and pink heart Reese’s peanut butter cups.

For the other blank wall in the room, we put up some tulle and a flower vine, and then had some pictures from Natalie’s photo shoot hanging on twine and clothespins. Brian made the cutest rose gold ballet barre to add to the theme, and we hung some of Baylee’s tutu’s and ballet slippers on it. Just for fun, we took the extra balloons that we didn’t need for the balloon arch and put them all over the floor.

For the actual party, we served meatball and pulled pork sliders, and Brian made his famous mac & cheese. We had a lot of kids show up, and thankfully the daytime was unseasonably warm, so we rented a bounce house for them to go crazy in! We also did a piƱata, which was an absolute blast (and SO much easier than making goodie bags). 

Natalie had so much fun running around with all of her little friends, stealing treats off the dessert table every 5 minutes, and having her beloved “Happy Birthday to You” sung to her.  It made my heart so full to see my girl so happy!

I can’t wait to experience the terrific two’s with this little munchkin!
