I loved Addilyn's first birthday party. I loved making invitations, crafts, planning it and having a huge party to celebrate her (really our) first year. But it was a lot of work! So we knew we wanted to do something super simple and easy (and cheap), but still celebrate our baby girl turning two! We decided on having an ice cream party with just our immediate family and it was perfect. We had it at 3:30, so no need to worry about feeding any dinner. Maybe just ruining some dinners? Oops. But it was great and I'm so glad we did it just like that!
I used a lot of her polka dot decorations from her first birthday and hung polka dot garlands around our house. We bought tons of candy from the Dollar Store and Target and cut them up in little pieces and put them in cute little bowls I found at Hobby Lobby. The mini chalkboard signs came in packs of four at the dollar spot from Target. I found the ice cream garland online here for free!
Someone woke up from her nap pretty excited to see all this candy.
