2nd Birthday Party Ideas

My little girl is turning 2 in May. She is 4 days older than her cousin. They both like Minnie Mouse and the mother doesn't want to throw a party together and I don't want to do the same theme as she is. I have no idea what kind of party to throw for a 2 year old. What should I do?

You don't have to throw a themed party for a two-year-old. Just figure out your color scheme. Say it is pink and white. Fine. So order a pink and white cake, then go to Walmart in the party supplies section, and get pink and white streamers, pink and white balloons. Get her pink plates and white napkins, pink plastic cutlery, etc. You can serve strawberry or vanilla ice cream or both. Put her in a pretty dress.

The child is two. She will be thrilled no matter what. It's a party.

A two year old doesn't have any idea at all about parties. Any theme or colour scheme you choose, you do to please yourself, because you like it, want to do it, or think it is fun, and want pictures of your child with the fancy cake.


If your child has playmates or cousins who are older (4 to 8, say), they will appreciate a "theme". If you are inviting grandma, grandpa, aunties & uncles, and no kids, I am not sure that anyone would really appreciate a theme, other than for the photo op.

Birthday parties are not a competition, and two year olds don't need a bunch of other two year olds as guests; they are happier with aunties and grandmas, in my experience.
