Two is terribly awesome, so celebrate it in style with our great 2nd birthday party ideas!
Is the birthday girl a prima ballerina? She’ll chasse for this graceful celebration. Have everyone wear their favorite leotard, ballet shoes, or tutu! Set up a pink treat table with a pink tablecloth and music boxes. Use white cake stands and attach pink tulle to look like tutus. Get a pink ruffled cake with ballet shoes on top and accompany it with pink wafer cookies and pretzel rods dipped in pink frosting and glitter sugar. Don’t forget the pirouette punch—pink lemonade with pink striped straws! Play pin the tutu on the ballerina or a game of ballet bingo. To get the party moving, hire a local dance teacher to come teach the girls a mini routine. Have them perform it for all the parents. For favors, put pink cotton candy tulle in mason jars.

Wine and Cheese Please!
If you’re on a budget assign a particular region to each guest and ask them to bring a bottle of wine from that region and a suitable type of cheese that pairs well with it. You supply the venue, wine glasses, breads and fruit. You can also serve crackers that go well with the cheese and wine you’re having. Choose either a casual buffet or a more formal table setting by placing the cheese and wine on separate tables dressed in elegant linen. Give each guest a unique wine glass charm when they arrive. Don’t forget to give your guests an elegant “thank you” gift as a token to remind them of this special birthday. Some options are a cheese spreader, personalized wine glass, wine charm, mini cheese grater or wine stopper. Remind your sexagenarian (pronounced sek-suh-juh–nair-ee-uhn) that they are getting better with age — just like a fine wine!
