My baby is two! I can’t believe it! I also can’t believe he is my last that I get to throw parties for (crying!) SO I figured I had to do something cute, even if my rule is, one year go big next year intimate family party. I just couldn’t help myself guys ha ha.

If that wasn’t a cute overload I don’t know what is ha ha!! So now onto party decor…
I knew I wanted some fun sunglasses as decor but I wasn’t sure where to get them. I ended up using my Cricut a lot for this. Here are the image #’s

Next is the Balloon arch.
This was my FIRST balloon arch and it was a lot easier than I anticipated!
–Black, white and teal balloons (I got a variety of 5-7 inch balloons)
–Large dull embroidery needle
–Mylar Balloon (optional)
–Low heat glue gun
-Blow up your balloons, make sure to vary the sizes.
-Thread your fishing line onto your needle and start to thread your balloons onto the needle. You are going to want to thread them onto the tied bottom part of the balloon.
-Once you have a good shape, cut and tie off the fishing line.
-Next get your low heat glue gun and start to glue on some of the balloons to fill in spots and make it look the shape you want it.
-Lastly hang on the wall and add the paper sunglasses. ( it also helps to glue on balloons after you have hung it up)
-If you have extra paper cut out sunglasses glue those onto some of the balloons.
What I love most about this party is it was super easy to put together. I printed, made the balloon arch and set everything up the day of his birthday. It wasn’t too crazy but so so cute!
Now its time to party!!! This 2 year old themed party is so much fun, gender neutral and sure to be a hit!
