We wanted to celebrate our son turning 2 last week. I have so much fun celebrating birthdays. I love the decorations, the cake, and the fact that we’re celebrating another year with someone we love. We focus really hard on keeping the parties very small with just a few family members and friends.
This year, we wanted to celebrate our very own Buzz Lightyear with a party around the same theme. We included a lot of store bought items, a lot of diy touches, and a lot of love!
For one thing, the cupcakes were from Publix, while his small cake was made to look like the claw machine aliens, you know, “Ooooh, the claaaaw!” I baked a very small, (6in X 2in) round cake and used the neon food coloring to make the color. I did something like 25 green drops and 2 blue. Then I drew on the face. It was a total hit!
The menu was SUPER easy! We had… Pizza. I used a poster board and tissue paper to make this rocket ship. I did a Google image search for the font and did the best I could with a magic marker to create the font.
A very simple touch was this banner. I bought glitter paper and cut it into cards. then I cut triangles out of the bottom and taped them to string. I thought it was beautiful, yet still appropriate for a boy’s party!
I was inspired by both the aliens and Disney minimalist art posters that I saw on Pinterest for the head lanterns. Simple circles taped onto the lanterns and there you have it!
At the end of the day, this party was such a success. The birthday boy had a great time!
