This year we decided to keep Trey's birthday party pretty low-key and have it at The Little Gym! We have been long time fans of our local LG, Trey has been attending classes there since he was 5 months old and I have met some of the BEST mom-friends you could ever ask for there!
The party was broken up into two parts: play! and then cupcakes and snacks. And let me tell you, it FLEW by. Before I knew it - we were handing out favors and hugging and kissing left and right. But it was definitely FUN! And I didn't feel any stress besides just getting there. The crew at LG took care of everything. To the point where I felt weird like... um... I can help with that!
It was so awesome to be able to 110% focus on Trey and our friends and family that came!
One of Trey's first "favorite things" was his sock monkey that he calls "chi-chi" and Paul Frank's Julius quickly became a favorite when one of the first sentences he said was "Look, mama! Mon-KEE!" and pointed to his Paul Frank shirt!
So the theme for my sweet *little* one's birthday was born! I didn't want it to be too "theme-y" - which I may have failed at? So I tried to incorporate lots of primary colors too!
Since the party was at 3pm we had very light snacks (chips, crackers, applesauce pouches for the kiddos), beverages and cupcakes. Nothing fancy - but perfect for a two-year old celebration!
I still have more pictures to get from my bestie, but I wanted to go ahead and share some that my SIL took while everything was fresh in my mind!!

Other Little Details:
|I threw this together one late, crafty night. It's just a beverage tub from Target with vinyl cut outs!|
|For the goody bags I just bought plastic buckets at Party City and cut each kids name out with vinyl on the cricut. Inside I included stickers, bubbles, maracas (because we do "shakers" at the Little Gym), crayons, a Paul Frank Bracelet and a little bag of Yummy Earth lollipops!|
|The Thank You notes and the file for the cupcake toppers (I had them printed at Office Max) came from Chloe Tate on Etsy (LOVE her!!!), the 2 beverage tub is also from Target as well as the dry erase Paul Frank boards that I used to make a banner!|
|I just took the stickers off of the bubbles, cut out vinyl circles on the cricut and threw a Paul Frank sticker on!|
