Between allergies, the flu, and stomach bugs we managed to have an amazing weekend celebrating the twins’ 2nd birthday. Our theme this year was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I learned quickly that I am going to have to get creative with birthday party themes being that I have three girls. But I knew right away that this would be perfect when I heard both girls sing and dance to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. They both get huge grins and their eyes light up, it’s precious.
So to honor them and the stars that they are, we did it up right with a lot of TWINKLE and some stars. This party consisted of all things pink, gold, and stars. The girls, once warmed up, had a blast.
And now for the details:
Food consisted of any and everything that I could cut into the shape of a star. I also reused some white mason jars with pink flowers for a touch of pink on the table.Watermelon star skewers with blueberries and strawberries. I set them in a clear canning jar with pink and gold ribbon swirled around the bottom. Star sugar cookies with pink icing. B helped ice the cookies, which she absolutely loved. We had a combination of whole icing, icing with gold sprinkles, and some with the #2 painted on them.
I found this sign on Pinterest and placed it in a gold frame from the Dollar Store. We also made Rice Krispie Treats cut into stars with pink/gold sprinkles on top.
Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches cut into stars. What kids don’t love PB&J??
The twins each had a cupcake with pink/white swirled icing and three star candles on top. It wasn’t until we were singing them Happy Birthday that I realized it was only their 2nd birthday, not their third. So goes my life…
Tuna had a blast being the center of attention, and Shrimp gladly let her have the spotlight. We are so thankful for our friends and family and the love they showered on the girls this weekend.
Another cute Twinkle Twinkle Little Star sign in a cheap Dollar Store frame. I made star wands for each kid with pink streamers and had the goody bags sitting by the door so I wouldn’t forget them. I also found two rolls of pink and gold shiny cellophane wrapping paper at the dollar store that doubled as wrapping paper and decor.
I reused this gorgeous shabby chic banner from their birthday party last year and just added some gold stars. The gift table included two chalkboards each with their height, weight, likes, favorites, and more. So thankful to my dear friend Tara for creating these for their 1st birthday, all I had to do was change out the information!
We played pin the star in the night sky. The older kids loved the spinning involved with this game and Tuna just enjoyed the attention.
The star water sensory bin was another hit with the kiddos. Frozen stars, a few cups or scoops, a bin, and some water are all you need for immediate fun! The kids loved scooping up the stars in their cups/bowls.
Cake time! Shrimp’s approach is to delicately smash her face into the cupcake without using her hands.
Tuna’s approach is to tackle it one tiny piece at a time.
