Here are the photos I took in the lead up to Rafa’s 2nd birthday and on the day. We had a lovely “Teddy’s Bears Picnic” themed party down on the oval near our house. People arrived around 2pm and were directed to follow the footprints down the path to the picnic spot. We had set up lots of picnic blankets and teddies and hung decorations from a big oak tree. I decorated his cake (2 small mud-cakes from the cheesecake shop) and had the rest of the food catered by a local company (who has just shut up shop, but is re-opening soon with a new name and new concept). We also had Tam from Crazy Kids Entertainment there painting faces, which was a huge hit and completely affordable.
Setting up the party was SO much fun, I can’t wait for next years now =)
We asked for no gifts, but of course little Raffi was spoiled rotten anyway… Next year we might have to try put a dollar limit on gifts instead!
