J turns 2 today! We celebrated in style this weekend with a few of our good friends. J’s two best buds also celebrated a birthday this month, so we combined the 3 birthdays into one big party.
I had a wonderful time planning the big day with my friends. We came up with some fun ideas and ended up having a great birthday party! Check out our Pinterest Zoo Birthday Pinboard where we got a lot of our ideas.
Sorry for the pic heavy post…but there was so much good stuff to share! I’m so happy with how the party turned out. The kids were happy, which meant that the parents were happy too. I hope that you found some inspiration for your next child’s birthday party!
Thanks for the great post and thanks for all the ideas!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
You’re welcome! Thanks for commenting!
Oh my gosh that party turned out awesome! I wondered how it was going and when we would hear about it! Everything looks fantastic. Love the monkey cupcakes. I bet the kids had a blast!! Those penguins are adorable but I don’t envy whoever had to make them!
Thanks! I did not do the penguins…thank goodness. They did turn out pretty cute though.

That ball and water bag activity is amazing! I bet it was the best Birthday ever.
The food is all so adorable and the water bag activity looks fun! I’ve never seen that done before!!
awesome party…do you have the recipe for the Elephant PB&J Sandwiches?
I just made regular pb&j sandwiches and used an elephant cookie cutter to cut out the sandwich. Super easy!
nice..for sure i’m having those for my son’s 2nd birthday. I’m having it at Safari Edventure. I guess they probably have them at Michael’s. Also how can I subscribe to your blog.

and what about the monkey cupcakes..are those full cookies or u cut them in half?
I actually didn’t make those, another Mom did. We did find them on pinterest, however the link to the source was broken. I did a little google search and found a blog with directions. Hope this helps. http://www.yanowhatimean.com/archives/003115.php
