Our twin girls turned two and we had a party to celebrate! It’s not every day you have two two-year olds after all! And since we didn’t do much of anything for the twins first birthday, we decided to go all out for this one! It took us a while to nail down a theme for the twins 2nd birthday party, especially because ours kids are still too young to really plan a party themselves. For a while I want to do a ‘two’ theme, but couldn’t figure out exactly what to do for it, so we eventually went with something the girls like – Elmo/Sesame Street (because my daughter’s favorite movie at the time, Wall-E, seemed too hard).
For the Elmo themed twins 2nd birthday party, we got a bunch of red balloons, taping two to outside of our front door, and two on the ends of our Happy Birthday Banner. The rest just lay on the floor waiting for little hands to bop up into the air. We got a Sesame street tablecloth, Elmo napkins, red plates and red cups, and white plastic spoons.
To eat we had chips, Tostitos Queso Dip (addicting!), a 7-layer dip from the store, blue corn chips and hummus, small cups of M&Ms and peanuts, and a punch bowl of ginger ale and sherbet. The food was yummy even if not all Elmo-themed.
We also bought Sesame Street party hats (modeled below by my niece).
For cake we made these really cute Elmo head cake pops. Josh and I are not cake-pop makers or much of bakers, so it was quite the experiment figuring out how to make them. And no, they are not picture-perfect, but they sure tasted good! What do you think? Cute or messy?
Opening presents was crowded and I was in the center of all the crazy kids frenzy! But, my twins made off like bandits with so many great gifts which my daughters have been loving. A big thank you to everyone!
Their grandparents took them out in the morning so they could “Build-a-Bear” and they came home with a monkey and a fox in frilly dresses! They love them! And Josh and I got the girls two big balls from one of those bins at Wal-mart, as well as two ride-on toys, one Mickey Mouse, the other Dora, from Once Upon a Child, (each for $8.50: talk about a score!) and the girls love them, just like we knew they would! We also got them a bag of Matchbox-type cars from Once Upon a Child. Our girls love cars.
