avery's second birthday

This year's birthday celebration for Avery was small but still sweet.  She had a fun time, especially with all the balloons (but really, what two-year-old doesn't love balloons?!).  Since her birthday is near Valentine's Day, red and pink served as color inspiration.  We'll see what Avery decides on for next year!

From left to right, top to bottom:

Valentine I love you mix from Papabubble in NY.  Each piece of candy is a work of art.

Cookies from IKEA with a smattering of heart-shaped sprinkles.

White peach marshmallows from our local Blackmarket Bakery.

Coconut meringues from Blackmarket Bakery.

Mother's Circus Animal cookies.  A classic.

Recycled heart-shaped crayon favors.

Blackmarket Bars from Blackmarket Bakery.

Mini Creme Brulee Tarts from Blackmarket Bakery.  Definitely some of their best tarts!

Kettle-cooked jellies from Trader Joe's.  Avery absolutely loves these.

Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from Susiecakes.  Best cupcakes in town!

A make-your-own-snack mix bar with pink polka dot portion cups from Bake It Pretty.

Avery's kid-sized table made by Way Basics.

What I love about this is that it is so doable! I love the little spoons used in the snack mix bowls. I'm wondering where you found those. Thanks!

Eunice: Thanks! I would love to help! I'll message you. :)

Shannon: Yes, prep for this party was pretty easy (after buying all the materials and equipment, etc., and making the garlands) since I bought all of the food and treats online or from local stores. Here is a link to the wooden scoops:
