A Space-Themed 2nd Birthday Party!

A Space-Themed 2nd Birthday Party!

You know you're a parent when your child turns 3 and you still haven't posted about their 2nd birthday yet!

Better late than never right? 🙂

When I was planning Layla's 2nd birthday, I couldn't believe one whole year had flown by since her 1st Birthday Party. And now we're at bday #3! It's crazy.

For Layla's 3rd birthday we moved the party out of our home, but for her 2nd birthday we still kept the party at home to make it easier for her (and us!)

We decided to go with a space theme, because Layla (and the husband) are really into Star Wars, and Star Wars has led Layla to develop an interest in space and the planets as well!

So for the snacks and desserts, I had to keep that space theme going 🙂

I put out cheddar and caramel popcorn as "Asteroids."

And of course, we had to have "Moon Rocks"! (Mini chocolate chip cookies).

Then came the cupcakes, which each had their own space character on them. I especially liked the little alien guy 🙂

And the goody bags, which had some special "space food" in them (freeze dried fruit and other goodies!)

Of course, we had to have some regular (healthier) food too! Fresh fruit, fresh veggies, hummus and pita, cheese, and whole grain crackers for appetizers...

And then we also ordered pizza 🙂

It was one of the first times we had a bunch of friends over to our new house, which was also a nice way to celebrate us moving in.

Finally, it was time for cake! We bought a small cake for Layla to dig into (since everyone else had cupcakes). But it was ridiculously good: vanilla cake stuffed with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, with vanilla buttercream on top!

Layla was pretty excited to blow out her candles and dig into that cake 🙂

Time to eat! Happy birthday Layla!
