At school on her 2nd birthday
For the cocktail party I made some easy desserts and hors d'oeuvres, as well as some Samoa cupcakes (based off the Girl Scout cookies) for Mila to take to school and for our guests to enjoy in place of a traditional birthday cake. We reused the decorations from the pool party and dug out outfits from our closets. It was a very simple, yet impacting, party!
Overall, both of Mila's birthday parties were a huge success. I'm glad that I didn't go as crazy as the year before, but I do admit that two parties may have been more than necessary. Regardless, they were a blast--for baby and mommy!
P.S. Mila took it upon herself to participate in the Cold Water Challenge during her second party. This resulted in me pulling her from the water and ripping off all her freezing, soaking wet clothes at lightning speed. I do not recommend this challenge for two-year-olds. With that said, she challenges Violet, Elsa, and Ariel.
