A 2 year old's dream Bubble Guppies party





My sweet baby girl (I have no idea when I will stop calling her that…it might be never) turned 2 this last April!  Of course we have to have a party.  I have to confess something right now.  I love parties.  I love hosting them, I love going to them, I just love the feeling of a party.  I went all out, because, well that is what I do.  I actually did not stress out that much over the decor because I did a TON of it before hand.  I made myself a timeline and I stuck to it. 
I am telling you I started planning this party 2 months in advance.  (actually before that if you count all the thought I put into it in my head) 

Party Checklist (I took a list from Kara Allen, from Kara’s Party Ideas and made it work for me.  I went to her website and could not find the printable of the timeline.  So I attached the one that I made for me.  Hope it helps when you are planning your next party.)


Two months before:
            -Pick date, time, and place of party
            -Decide on a party theme and colors to go with it. 
- My daughter is quite obsessed with Bubble Guppies.  I kind of like it.  I think it is adorable; so I went with that theme. 
            -Start brainstorming (this is what I was doing even before 2 months before)
-Start buying items that will not go bad for the party (decor items, plates, cups, utensils, napkins, table clothes, etc.)  The benefit of starting 2 months early is you can shop the sales and price items out.  This way the party ends up costing less.
I was able find this adorable shirt on Etsy.  I bought it with plenty time to spare and the birthday girl LOVED IT!

-Now would be a good time to call for any rentals if you want to do that.  I did not do that for this party.  She is easily entertained with everyone that came to the party.
