Smith's 2nd Birthday

Smith's mommy, Jessica wanted to throw a truck-themed party for his second birthday and I was more than happy to do what I could to show off a few of his favorite trucks. At the time, his favorites were garbage trucks, construction trucks, and monster trucks, so I did my best to create an invitation that included all of them. I love how it turned out!

The text "I like big trucks and I cannot lie" was printed onto some plastic cups that Jessica saw online and it's what inspired her to do the truck theme for his birthday. So of course we had to use it on the invitations.

For the party, we also created a custom cupcake toppers. I absolutely LOVE the dump trucks holding snacks!

Lastly, we made a simple thank you card that Jessica printed as folded cards so she could add a handwritten message inside.

Liam's 2nd Birthday

Since Liam was WAY into garbage trucks when he turned two (so many toddlers are!), his mommy Joanna, chose a garbage truck theme for his birthday party. It was such a fun theme to work with! Joanna picked up miniature garbage can pencil holders from Amazon to decorate the buffet table and goodie bags were made with mini black trash bags! Perfect!

Here's his invitation:

We created a couple of welcome signs that were posted in a few spots in the house.

2" circle cupcake toppers for the cupcakes that Joanna picked up from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Sooooo delicious!

A pennant banner hung over the windows.

We created a super simple coloring book for kids to play with too:

My oldest thoroughly enjoyed the coloring book!

Lastly, I created a t-shirt graphic that Joanna ordered through Zazzle. They were the only shop that would let us order one custom t-shirt in navy blue. I usually recommend CafePress, but they didn't have navy blue. Taking a non-blurry photo of Liam actually wearing the shirt proved to be very hard, so this is my mockup of what the t-shirt looks like. Someday I'll try and get a better photo. Ha!

This birthday party was so much fun to create and even more of a treat to get to actually go to the party! Happy happy birthday Liam!
