Ask her what she wants to do. You might be pleasantly surprised at the simple suggestions that a two year old will come up with that are very meager to the grand plans Mom might have. If you are having a kids party you could do a flower theme and let the kids plant seeds to bring home, or do a princess tea party with fancy but inexpensive silverwear and applejuice tea that you serve from a pot on the floor. If you want to go somewhere a lot of places don't start parties until 3, but usually the local museums, indoor children's places, local gymastics centers have parties ready to roll. If the party is all adults you can dress her up in fancy clothes and ask her do her own ballet show for the adults or get a family soccer game going as part of the fun.
