Hello hello! We had one craaaaazy busy weekend here at Casa Bendall but it was so so worth it!
Saturday we celebrated the little guy’s 2nd birthday with a big bash (seriously, the kid has more friends than me!). Cooper’s Transportation Party was a big hit but a ton of work leading up to it!
The morning dawned a little overcast but the skies began to open as the guests arrived. I purchased a party kit on Etsy to make our transportation dreams come to light. I knew Cooper would love it because he is obsessed with all things cars, trains and airplanes!
But because I knew a 2 year old wouldn’t really understand the concept of it being his party, I made sure to get some great catering for the adults at the Fueling Station!
And, of course, I had to make sure there was something available for the little ones–popcorn and candy it is!
I loved putting together all the cute decorations for Cooper! The centerpieces and the banners totally won me over!
Another highlight for the adults (because as long as the parents are happy, right?), was the Pit Stop!
Mimosas and beers for the adults and lemonade for the kids!
And of course, I didn’t forget the kids! There were plenty of toys to tickle their fancies! A train set, a race track and plenty of cars for starters!
A big Thomas the Tank and Fire Engine Play Tent for fun!
Some fancy cars to take for a spin!
And a coloring station full of transportation themed color-ins!
But I think everyone’s favorite part of the whole party were the sweets!
The dessert table!
This Cooper cake was just beyond! Trains, planes and cars all in one plus his name and a 2!
The cupcakes were equally adorable! But I really loved the cookies (and that is what Coops chose!).
My mom’s pumpkin bars were pretty amazing as well!
And who do you think cut out and glued all the little stickers on the candies! #ihaveanocdproblem
At the end, all the guests left with a cute little bucket from Coops saying Thanks for Flying By and taking home a coloring paper, crayons, candy and some playdough or bubbles!
It was a totally exhausting 2 hours but totally worth it for my little 2 year old!
The second birthday party that you put toghether for Cooper was very creative. The decorations are terrific. What little boy would not love the tranportation party–all about trains, airpance, cars, trucks and anything that goes ZOOM! Lucky boy to have you as his Mommy. Very nice job on the party.
