My son just turned two over the weekend. It’s absolutely crazy to think I’ve been a mom for two years! Time has always been such a mystery to me. It can go so slowly and like a flash at the same time(what’s with that?). Regardless of time and my relationship with it, my son still turned two and that meant we needed to party!!
I wanted to do it up right for him because turning two is a big deal. He is wayyyy into Bob the Builder right now, so naturally it made sense for that to be the theme of his party. A lot, different from his one year old birthday party last year since he has a little more say in things this go around.
affiliate links included at no cost to you because Amazon is awesome
Party planning is stressful to me. I get caught up in all the details and worrying wether or not everyone will have a good time and be comfortable. That’s why I was intentional about keeping decorations as simple as possible while also making sure it was special. I naturally turned to Amazon for help because they can do anything, right?! Here are the decorations I used for his simple but awesome Bob the Builder Birthday Party:
I found a package of Bob the Builder Balloons on Amazon that included five balloons, a Bob the Builder 3 foot balloon, a #2 balloon that was also 3 feet tall, 4 mylar balloons with trucks and the Bob the Builder crew plus one colorful Birthday balloon. That’s seven total balloons. Then I had an additional nine yellow helium balloons to pare with those balloons (I just said balloons a whole lot).
This was a huge help in decorating! They were the focal point of the party and majorly impressed the birthday boy. I have a feeling we will be keeping this balloons around long after his party.
The cake was so cute and delicious (as you can see Foster can’t wait to dig in). I ordered the cake from Sam’s Club for only $15.99 because I’m basic like that. It was actually a Minion themed cake but I just asked for the characters to be left off. Then I added some little construction trucks that Foster loves to play with because trucks are life! Construction Zone Decorations
Have I mentioned that my son likes trucks?! Because he does! I was so excited to find these inexpensive construction zone decorations. The pack included this little truck centerpiece, dizzy danglers (that we hung from the fireplace) and a big Happy Birthday Banner(not pictured but is pictured in the link).
This was the perfect shirt for his Bob the Builder Birthday Party. He was so excited to have a truck on his clothes! I love how excited kids get about the small things.
I ordered a 2T and it definitely fit true to size plus the material was soft which is always a bonus. He’ll be rocking this shirt all summer long.
His two year old party was a huge success! He loved all the decorations and felt all the love from family and friends. I’m so beyond thankful to celebrate two years with my little man(and Bob)!
