We didn’t want to completely abandon our regular posting schedule this week as we know not everyone is into entering giveaways…so, I decided to share with you some details from the dude’s second birthday party this weekend.

We decided to go with an airplane theme, as he is totally and completely obsessed with them right now and boy was he psyched about it. I think he screamed airplane about a million times! I was lucky enough to have a little professional help with this party. We’ ve been insanely busy in our house lately. Between the hubs’ workin’, applying to business school, the blog and my writing for Shoptopia I wasΒ  a little overwhelmed by the thought of shopping for the dude’s party. Enter the lovely Jackie Fo and one of her “Fo Fabulous Custom Party Planning Packages!” She sent me ideas for everything from decor, to favors and the menu. She helped make planning the party so seamless for me! Here are some highlights from our toddler soiree…

etsy airplane invitation

The invitations from Etsy shop Love Is Enormous.

etsy bunting

The bunting is from Etsy shop Spring Chick.

red, white and blue bunting

airplane cake

I ordered the chocolate and banana bavarian cream cake from a friend of mine who just graduated from pastry school. Not only was it fabulous to look at but it tasted outta this world!

desserts

The rest of the desserts consisted of store bought cookies and cupcakes. I looooooove to bake…but what can I say? Mama ran out time, so I pulled a Sandra Lee!

party menuI kept the menu super simple and easy. We had sloppy joes, Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets (which I got for the kiddos but the adults totally dominated), pasta salad, baked beans, fruit salad, chips and pretzel rods.

airplane party favors

This is the loot the kiddos made off with.

the dude

The dude’s party ensemble consisted of an airplane polo from Target, patchwork plaid shorts from Gymboree and Sperry Top-siders from Stride Rite. It’s his first outfit post! HA!

cool kids

Check out this adorable balloon wreath that Rosebud Network Member Cool Kids featured on her blog. I’ll have to remember this for next year!

I hope you enjoyed the little peek into my weekend. We had such a blast celebrating our little man’s second birthday and ended the day with some Mommy, Daddy and dude play time in the yard. He splashed around in his kiddie pool while the hubs and I sipped on a couple o’ cold ones. It was heavenly!

Before I go I have some links for those of you that have been following my Shoptopia lists, here are a couple new ones: What Not to Wear to Court…AHEM Lindsday Lohan (don’ts for defendants, dos for the rest of us) and Carrie Underwood Got Married! Let’s Shop for the Newlyweds! (domestic goodies to help feather your nest). Thank you SO much for clicking through and showing your support. I heart ya to the moon and back! Now go and enter to win these killer prizes!
