Well, by 13 months old, 'In the Night Garden' was out the door and 'Tinkerbell' became the most loved character in the house... that was until 22 months old and our daughter discovered 'Toy Story'!!! Poor Tinkerbell was shooed out the door and Jessie the Cowgirl and Buzz Light year were ushered in with gusto!!! I was horrified at this last minute change as I had been planning the perfect Tinkerbell Birthday Party for months! All bets were off now... but with a quick Google image search I found plenty of Toy Story party inspiration from around the world! I now had two months to rework the whole birthday theme and this is what I came up with:
Bella's 2nd Birthday Toy Story Extravaganza!
First of all I made the invitation's, this was so much fun! It took me a while to put a sample together I liked but in the end I created the perfect invitation for the theme.
*Photo to come (I have to make another one as I forgot to take a photo of one for the blog! Opps! A small oversight!)
The invitations really helped me establish a look for the party so next was the cake - again I used the amazing ladies at Mio Cupcake & Cakes! This time I booked them well in advance and together we finally came up with a final design... although I changed my mind at least half a dozen times!!!
In the end, the cake that was to be the centrepiece of the dessert table was a Jessie the Cowgirl Cake!
Originally I had thought more along the lines of a generic Toy Story cake but my girl loves Jessie so a Jessie Cake it was and the result was pure perfection! What do you think?

|Chocolate Fountain time again!!! |
This time with Strawberry and Marshmellow Kebabs for dipping!
|The kids who came were all 1 and 2 year old's |
so instead of games I had activities such as pony sticks to run around on - this was the pony stop!

|Alien Party Hats and Paper Eskimo Party Plates all tied into the theme perfectly!|
|The colour scheme was brilliant! It was really easy to source different items in these colours and tie the theme altogether.|
