Recently, we celebrated Cole’s 2nd birthday with a ball-themed party because the boy is obsessed with any sport involving a ball. We served homemade J-Dawgs (we use J-Dawg sauce, Kirkland all-beef dogs, and Shirley’s buns), cupcakes with gumballs, and a peaches-n-cream almond cake, surrounded by gumballs and old-fashioned balloon cake picks.
Cole ended up breaking out with a fever so we didn’t do as many activities as planned, but I had a ball pit (in a blow-up swimming pool) and balloons everywhere with foam noodles (cut in half) to be swords or bats to hit the balloons around the park.
I made surprise balls for the children (a la Jordan Ferney) that included little toys, balls, dinosaurs, bracelets, stickers and tattoos. -They were the hit of the party, for sure.
Can’t believe our little baby is already 2!
