Two-tti Fruity Birthday Party: Blakely Turns 2!
Little Baby Pizzazzerie is TWO YEARS OLD, ya’ll! I know. I can’t believe it either. Weren’t we just chatting about her first birthday?! We were. I know it. But alas, we’ve celebrated another year, fruity style! TWO-TTI FRUITY to be exact. My love for all things pineapple, watermelon, strawberry…. was fully on showcase for her birthday party! Thankfully she also adores all the fruits. I’m so excited to share the party details with you so if you are throwing a fruit themed party, you can get lots of details links! Hooray! P.S. Forgive me for the 2348299 photos, I couldn’t stop.
A little pause to tell you some of my favorite parts of this two-tti fruity party! We started with the adorable invitations which I wanted to slide open like little fruit slices! Erica of Harper Gray did not disappoint. The invitations set the stage for the whole party because we used her fruit designs to make plates too! A yellow and white striped fabric made the perfect preppy tablecloth for the celebration. If you want a similar tablecloth (or napkins, placemats, etc), then check out this cute “chunky stripe” line from Minted. Yellow stripe is the perfect tablecloth for summer celebrations too. I find myself using it all the time!
I knew I wanted a wild and crazy cake that was of course – FRUITY! Faboo Cakes was a dream to work with, adore them! The cake turned out to be one of my FAVORITE parts of the party! The flavors inside were vanilla, strawberry, and orange! Cookies were a must too so I used extras to decorate the cake display. Cookies Are My Canvas (who also made my wedding cookies) created darling fruit themed cookies. Big cookies down to itty bitty cookies, they were all so cute. Plus, they were delish!
Party hat time! I seriously love party hats even if my little Blakely was not willing to wear one (she has a mind of her own)! Hats are still one of my favorite party elements, even if they just serve as party decor. So here’s the 5 minute DIY for these watermelon party hats! Ready?
DIY Watermelon Party Hats
- I bought these pink party hats.
- Wrap green ric rac around the bottom with a hot glue gun.
- Next up, I used a black Sharpie marker to draw on seeds.
- And..DONE! My kind of DIY!
We had adorable little fruity pinatas all over! From strawberries and pineapples to watermelons too. I got them from Lula Flora (and also one of the fruit garlands). They’re SO CUTE! They definitely jazzed up the party table for this two-tti fruity party! For plates, I used the watermelon, lemon, and lime designs from the invitation to make my own paper plates from Zazzle (big ones and then minis for cake). I found ordering from Zazzle to be a breeze, and I’m now obsessed with them.
For food, we served…ready….FRUIT. Obviously, it was a two-tti fruity party after all! My Mom carved out oranges to create little “fruit cups” to hold watermelon, grapes, kiwi, berries, etc. We also served extra fruit in mini cupcake liners with adorable party picks from My Paper Crush. You could recreate this with carved our lemons too! I love the miniature individual servings, they’re so cute for mixing and mingling! We also has chocolate covered Oreos, sugar cookies, and cake! Sugar rush? Yep!
I LOVE the picture above. Doesn’t it look just like she’s thinking “will they notice if I just take a lick of frosting off real quick?!” :) And a few more pictures from the party! A little proof that I was indeed present (albeit looking oh so tired, haha). We had an absolute BLAST celebrating little miss Blakely, two-tti fruity style!
There you have it! I loved sharing this sweet little party with all of you! I hope you have lots of inspiration if you’re throwing a fruit themed bash too. It’s definitely going down as one of my all-time favorite party themes! Below are links for the items in the party!
