Madeline’s 2nd Birthday

We celebrated Madeline turning two with a Daniel Tiger themed birthday party on her actual birthday last Saturday. Daniel Tiger has been one of her greatest loves since she was around nine months old so it was fun to bring this party to fruition to celebrate her special day this year.

Last year I went a little overboard with decorations. I still think it was the absolute perfect first birthday party. (Check it out here). But, this year I decided to not go quite as crazy, even though I do love a good party.

I made two little table top trolleys using the patterns on the PBS website and pouffed up some tissue paper Pom Pom poufs for the Dollar Tree. The Pom Pom garlands are also from the dollar store. 

I ordered this party set for paper goods from Amazon and this set of balloons. This kept things SO easy because it was all delivered to my front door. 

The fireplace banner is from Etsy here and I love it. I moved it up to Madeline’s play area after the party. Madeline's little personalized Daniel Tiger dress is also from Etsy and you can find it here.

A sweet local mama passed down the “Happy 2nd Birthday” banner but it is also available here if you have a Daniel Tiger lover of your own. I set Madeline’s Daniel Tiger figurines around for a few extra little touches, too. She has this set, this set, and this one.

I made guacamole (my recipe here in a super old post), picked up queso from Moe’s, and set out a jar of salsa for appetizers. And goldfish and mini pretzels for the kids, of course.

I also served a taco bar. I used this recipe for the beef filling and made pulled salsa chicken. I made cheese quesadillas for the kids, cilantro rice and beans, and fruit salad.

For dessert, I ordered a mini cake and cupcakes from Publix just like last year and some fun cookies from my favorite cookie gal.

It was such a fun party and Madeline and her little friends sure did love all the Daniel Tiger decor. We loved celebrating our girl and when I tucked her in for bed that night she looked up and said “Mommy, I so happy!” which made it that much more special for me, too. 

We love you sweet girl!
