We celebrated Otis’ 2nd birthday yesterday and I still have a smile plasters across my face!! It was the best day ever. I don’t think I have slept so well as I did after our day of festivities. It was so important to me that despite our current pandemic world, that I create a beautiful day for Otis to enjoy. I decided to do a Trolls themed birthday since that movie has been on repeat in this house. Not only that, rainbows are extra meaningful for our family given that Otis is our rainbow baby after years of IVF. Even 2 years later, my level of gratitude for him in our family can never be expressed.
The main decor was a rainbow and cloud balloon arch made of balloons, streamers, and hung on a photo backdrop stand. Blake was the one that created the balloon clouds by tying bunches of balloons together and then attached with fishing line when needed and connecting that to the pole. For the streamers, they are just strung over the pole at the top. We also blew up some loose balloons for the ground and lined some streamers in the doorway for his entrance in the morning. I also ordered the cutest Happy Birthday Otis custom sign on etsy. Another thing I ordered to customize for our theme was two kinds of Trolls wrapping paper. When we walked in, we made sure to have the Trolls soundtrack blast and of course, had a dance party.
For sweet treats, I ordered our favorite donuts from Sidecar and got these cute gold candles for it. I also got this cake mix from Flour shop + Williams Sonoma which I baked for Otis to enjoy later in the day along with this cake stand and Trolls figurines lined up on the cake stand (instead of IN the cake so it would make for easier cleanup!)
Otis basically ran around with all the streamers for hours. So if you need to entertain a toddler, throw some streamers on the floor. YOU’RE WELCOME. HA! But in all seriously we had the best day celebrating our 2 year old!!! I will be creating a separate blog post with Otis’ 2 year old presents ideas so stay tuned. See all party details below!
