Here’s a few pics from Little Bug’s Second 2nd Birthday celebration last month!
I wanted his cake to be simple but cute. We frosted it with cream cheese frosting and then added a sweet circus-y bunting that I made from decorative paper, baker’s twine, and bamboo skewers.
Bug and Grandpa. This boy is obsessed with cameras, phones, and computers.
Carrot cake and Blueberry Sherbet, mmmm!
This is my first handmade pinata! It took 4 times as long to make as I imagined! I followed this DIY pinata tutorial. Eventhough I started it 5 or 6 days before the party, I still barely got it finished. If you want to try to make one of these I might suggest you make yours smaller than mine and give it plenty of time to dry. Also, don’t put your tissue paper on from the top down. It is so much more difficult that way. Start at the bottom and work your way up!
After a couple of turns Little Bug and his BFF got tired of hitting it, so we dropped it down, gave it a wack and let them rip it open.
I decided to fill it with some fun snacks and toys instead of the usual candy. There were stickers, matchbox cars, light up balls, maracas, silly putty, cookies, fruit leather, and more.
Happy birthday to my little monkey!
