max's 2nd birthday plans / by emily starr alfano

it's hard to believe this munchkin is almost TWO. we kinda went all out for her first because, duh. and while we'll certainly have some fun details for this party {because you know, it's me}, we're reigning things in just a bit. we started music class when max was 6 months old and never looked back. her love for music and singing is as evident as it's ever been, so a music-related party it is! her teacher, stacey, is coming to the house and following that, we'll have a little pizza party. and cake of course. 

so i'm sure you're thinking, oh it'll be a music-themed party! yeah, not so much. i wanted to build on something happy and everywhere i turn these days, it's rainbow this and rainbow stripe that. and i'm kinda loving it all so while there's no true "theme", it'll be colorful and festive! below are some things i've purchased, are on the list, or are just inspiring me!
