All right, mommies, I need some opinions here.
I'm planning Chloe's 2nd birthday party. We're talkin' a small shindig with a few cousins (that are close to her age), their parents, and Chloe's grandparents. We're all going to the local park, which has a specially designated "Tot Lot" for kids their age, and we're just gonna have cake and play on the playground. Simple enough, yes?
I'm already going against the flow, I suppose, by doing a Curious George theme. Apparently, this is a boys-only theme, as was so clearly pointed out to me by the "BOY'S PARTY THEME" sign at Party City. Still, my little girl LOVES her some "Monkey Gerge," (pronounced jurj); so I am happy to oblige her.
But I am getting hung up on the cake issue, ya'll. Is Red Velvet Cake too grown up for a 2-year-old party?
I feel like the adults will enjoy it more, and the kids won't know the difference. It's also kind of cool that the cake is red, like her party decorations. So what do you think? To help my case, I am getting the cake from a local bakery that perhaps makes the most scrumptrulescent Red Velvet Cake that ever existed on this earth. (What? I said perhaps.)
Finally, do you have any suggestions for some not-so-organized party games for this age? I'm already giving each of the kids a balloon and a little bottle of Curious George Bubbles that I think could potentially entertain them for the entire party. But just in case, any other thoughts?
I love plannin' some parties, ya'll. It's great fun.
