A 2nd birthday















We gathered our loved ones over the weekend to celebrate Elspeth turning two. We had been telling her about it for days ahead and she would ask about it often. We'd go through the list of guests and planned events and she'd giggle a deep, squeeze-fists laugh and it was just about the best thing.

This girl was beside herself with all the fun and love and she probably didn't stop running (and sneaking cupcakes) the entire time. She was happy as can be and we've got a pile of balloons big enough to fill her room from floor to ceiling (which she would love).

Happy birthday, my winter babe.

Animal masks printed from the House that Lars Built.
Ice cream cone cupcakes and wrapped box container both from Put Together // homemade cupcake recipe or boxed cake mix both work!
Balloon sticks can be found at most party or craft stores. I got them at Hobby Lobby.
I made the banner with twine and paper doilies: here and here.
Party hat inspired by this one found at the Hunted Interior // I wrapped a traditional party hat in white wrapping paper for this one and hot-glued faux flowers and twigs.
Treat boxes were "sacks-n-things" to-go boxes found at Hobby Lobby (not currently sold online) that I decorated with washi tape.
