As mentioned on my previous post ‘23 Month Update‘, we have started to think about our little boys 2nd birthday party. What do you do to mark such an occasion? Well to start with, we need to pick a theme……..
Pros: One of the little tykes favourite books in the whole world. Its a little bit quirky. You can tie it in with some woodland themed accessories. Kids of all ages would enjoy.
Cons: You would struggle to find a ready made Gruffalo cake. There are not as many gruffalo themed party accessories available.
Pros: Involves lots of pastel colours, but mostly pink and blue. There are tons and tons of Peppa and George merchandise available. You can easily buy a Peppa Pig birthday cake in the supermarket without having to make one yourself.
Cons: Too popular and not very original. Off putting for any older kids attending.
Thomas the Tank Engine
Pros: Thomas is probably our little mans favourite tv character. He loves trains. You can get train or Thomas themed party accessories. Blue and red is nice and bright for a party.
Cons: I am struggling to find a ready made Thomas cake. I don’t have time to make a cake and I am not very experienced when it comes to baking.
Pros: The little man just loves dinosaurs and dinosaur toys. You could do a mix of jungle and dinosaur themed accessories.
Cons: I cant really think of any, except it might be a bit old for him at the moment.
Pros: You can use lots of different animal toys and accessories. There are lots of jungle themed music that you could have in the background. Its lovely and colourful.
Pros: It might not be his favourite theme.
Final decision…… Thomas the Tank Engine
We were thinking more on the lines of the dinosaur party but as he is having a joint party we decided on something that both boys like – Thomas the Tank Engine. Its going to be good fun planning this party actually and I look forward to putting up more posts relating to this!
Have a nice evening folks, ta ta xxx
