Zack & Maggie's Second Birthday Party
Richard Scarry wrote a book in 1963 called "I am a bunny," with the main character being a cute little bunny named Nicholas. Zack & Maggie love this book, as do we, and we decided it should be the theme to their second birthday party. We hosted the party at The Barefit & Pregnant Studio, same venue as last year, where there would be a lot of space for kiddies to run around in a nice bright space. There were about 14 families there to help us celebrate the big day and I think everyone had a great time. We brought over a few toys, taped butcher paper to the floor and had crayons for colouring, and also brought some books. The drawing was a big hit and the remainder of the time was basically spent eating treats. We had cake, cupcakes, cake pops (a HUGE hit), cinnamon rolls, banana muffins, lemon loaf, veggies, fruit, cheese & crackers, and kiddie crackers & popcorn type treats. The party favours were sugar cookies with different Nicholas the bunny images on them. I wrapped them up with colour coordinated ribbon and added a "thank you for coming" tag, identical to the tags used for the cupcakes toppers. I had a lot of fun prepping for the party, and loved having "I am a bunny" to help coordinate everything. I would definitely do events like this for other people - give me a theme and let's see where it goes!
