  • Just have a family barbecue. Get some chalk and hula hoops and balls and bubbles for the kids.

  • Your baby will be happy anywhere for her birthday party, it just comes along with her being a baby. I would do it in a park, then the other kids can play on the equipment and have a grand time. Every kid loves a playground.

  • That is the day of my baby's 2nd bday! :-) We're doing a party with all the family and friends, just having some food and cupcakes! It will be nice here, too. Are you doing a theme at all?

  • First, you need to come up with a fun theme...and then ideas for fun activities and decorations will come after that. What is your baby's favorite thing or toy? I did a rubber ducky theme for my son, since that was his favorite toy and he doesn't really watch tv or movies. I decorated with yellow, blue and orange streamers and balloons. I made a cake in a ducky shape and made buckets for the kids that looked like little bathtubs with rubber duckies and other things inside.I had a Ducky pinata, and also made a blue punch that looked like a bathtub with duckies floating around in it. I played the sesame street bathtime cd that has the rubber duckie song on it. I also had kids ranging in age all the way up to 10 and they all had a good time. I think once you have a theme it's much easier to come up with ideas. If you have a theme in mind, I could help you further. PM if you'd like some more help.
