  • My dd's bday is at the end of Feb. and I usually start planning the beginning of Jan. , but I always go way over board. This year we rented the same place that we had our wedding reception ( because there is 75 people invited) . I made center pieces for the tables , I am having goodie bags for the kids . Since she is only 2 and most of the kids are around the same age instead of games I am having coloring pages ( which you can print online ) in whatever theme you choose . I am filling the dance floor with balloons and having some kids dance music for the kids to have fun while we get the food ready . I am having soup and sandwiches for the adults and Chicken Nuggets and Fries for the kids . And of course cake !!!!! Also I learned last year that she was not going to sit down long enough to open gifts so I just did it for her while the guests watched and the kids played with there goodie bags .
