On Saturday we celebrated our youngest son, Cesar’s 2nd birthday! His actual birthday is this coming Thursday!
We had a great party at our house filled with our family and friends. Cesar doesn’t grasp the concept of birthdays yet but he had a blast and was in his element being surrounded by tons of people!
I think birthdays at this age are more for the parents than the kids anyway. It’s a time for us to reflect on the glorious memories that have been made this year and also a time to wipe our brow and say a blessing that we made it through another year of keeping this child safe!
Even though our family loves celebrating birthdays and throwing parties we don’t go “all out.” We keep things simple and keep to a low budget. We don’t do themes we just make things “festive.”
Here is one of the decorations I made for Cesar’s birthday that was simple to make and brought smiles to everyone’s face!
To make this I picked some of my favorite photos and cropped and enlarged them to get only his face. I then cut out around his head. Next I took some scrapbook paper and drew and cut out triangles. Lastly I took a strip of tissue paper, scrunched it up and glued it to the bottom of the party hat triangle and then a little piece to the top of the triangle.
That’s it! All twelve heads took me about an hour to make!
Stay tuned this week for more glimpses into Cesar’s 2nd birthday bash!!!
Happy Birthday to Cesar!!! Love the decorations you made for him!
Thank you so much!!
I love this idea! So cute and easy! Happy Birthday to Cesar!
It was easy!!! Thank you so much!!
What a cool idea! 🙂
Super clever idea. I will definitely have to try making these for my son’s next party. Nice to know it took under one hour. Happy Birthday Cesar!
Thank you! I’m going to keep them and add more next year I think!!!
wish you happy birth day Cesar
Oh, thank you so much!!!!
I hope Cesar has a wonderful 2nd birthday on Thursday. Best Wishes!
thank you so much for the wishes!!!
How very cool! I wish I had known you when my kids were little and I needed good ideas.
Happy Birthday Cesar!
haha!!! Thank you!!!
The wall with all the pictures is cool.
Thank you so much!!!
I know this is sort of random (and not really related to birthdays), but I recently saw on Pinterest where someone had made gamepieces out of their kids pictures. I thought that was neat. In my house it would eliminate the kids fighting over who had what gamepiece. 😀
Ohhhhh…that is definitely a good idea!! There is definitely fighting on that subject as well here!!!
Lovely idea! Hope that the little man enjoyed his special day. X
Thank you!! He sure did!!!
So stinkin’ cute!
We are very low-key…but A. has requested “Hello Kitty” cupcakes for her 3rd b-day next month. Happy Birthday to Cesar!
Thank you!! Oh, I have a feeling a “Hello Kitty” cupcake may be in my future too. My daughter Iris loves Hello Kitty!!
SO SO Cute!!
Oh thank you so much!!!
