Tripp’s Second Fiesta

Please note this post may contain affiliate links.

We had so much fun for Tripp’s second birthday! I can’t believe what a big boy I have these days! His birthday party fell on Cinco de Mayo so OF COURSE we had a little fiesta!

 

Instead of stressing over food we decided to cater in Rosa’s and it was amazing and a WONDERFUL price point! Pro tip: Make sure to have lots of fruit and pouches if you have a lot of kiddos attending.  They loved snacking on that while parents enjoyed chips, salsa and guacamole (and some of the kiddos loved that too)!

 

I had so much fun decorating with all the pinatas and mini hats! I also went simple with mini cupcakes and purchased themed cupcake toppers. The party favors were little maracas.  The kiddos thought they were super fun to play with and they served as good decoration (win-win)!

We had inflatable pools and water toys out side to play with and I couldn’t leave the little kids table with no decoration! I also made sure to have plenty of chalk for them to draw on the back porch too! I have linked everything below that we enjoyed at the party (including the toys we had out for kids to play with).

Baby Sprinkle

Baby fever is REAL people! Especially when you get to sprinkle one of your good friends. I am so excited for her little bundle of joy.  The gender is a surprise this go around and the anticipation is KILLING me!

Anyways… over the weekend my girlfriend Taylor [check out her AMAZING interior design company Southern Reflections] and I hosted a baby sprinkle for Sarah.

The MAJOR gift that everyone contributed to was the glider [linked here] and it is AMAZING!!! It reclines and swivels and rocks…. the trifecta of gliders! We also got big brother a shirt and mama a monogrammed robe!

Now I need to admit I did about 5% of the work on this but I felt the need to brag on my super magnificent talented friend Taylor, who has such an eye for party planning and design!

I got the Mom-osa bar chalkboard sign idea on Pinterest and I think it turned out SUPER cute!

I also made the party favors.  I got little jars off amazon and found downloadable tags on Pinterest. On the back I printed a label that said “Thank you for SPRINKLING Baby *****. Sprinkle this epsom salt in your bath & enjoy!”

Finally, we decided as an activity to make a mobil for the baby’s room.  This picture does not do it justice! It was fun to craft and chat as a group.
