Gianna's 2nd Bday Party

This past Saturday we had Gianna's 2nd bday party. While last year we went all out celebrating her first birthday we wanted something a little more low key this year.Gianna's favorite show is Bubble Guppies so we went with a Bubble Guppy theme and went from there.
 We invited our closest friends over for a get together and served appetizers, drinks and deserts. Although rain ruined some of the festivities for the kids they were still able to play outside where I hooked up a bubble machine and let them run around in the kiddie pool or sprinkler. The kids also played Pin the Tail on the Guppy and were able to color Bubble Guppy coloring pages I printed offline.
Most of the decorations were handmade by myself and a friend thanks to NickJr who had a ton of free Bubble Guppie  party printables for . It turned out better than expected.
Gianna loved all the bubble guppy decor. She ran from banner to banner shouting out bubble over and over! She asked to be picked up numerous times to get a closer look at the decorations and instead of eating the crayons as she usually does, she was very motivated to color a picture of her favorite character Molly.
Seeing the look of happiness on her face makes it all so worth it. I have loved every second of the past year with this little girl and can't wait to see what the next year brings.
And without further adieu, party pictures
