Kenley's 2nd Birthday!

On November 15th my Kenley turned TWO! She had the honor of being a flower girl in my girlfriend's wedding ON her birthday, so we celebrated with a party the weekend before. BUT, we also had a wedding that weekend. I wanted to be sure to do something special for my little two-year-old despite our super busy fall but knew I would not have the time to put together something for her on my own. And so, I enlisted the help of The Little Gym and omigosh I am so happy I did. 
The Little Gym has a wonderful party package that includes EVERYTHING from invites to decor, but you guys know me well enough to know that I couldn't possibly hand over ALL the details of my baby's party to someone else. I found this ADORABLE panda themed party decor on Party Pail and knew I just HAD to have it for Kenley's party. Party Pail has a TON of super adorable party supplies for an incredible price and they make it super easy to coordinate your party decor by theme or color. I ordered cups, dessert plates, napkins, silverware, a table cover, goodie bags, bubbles & little panda blowers from Party Pail and was so happy with all of it! 
I was so in love with the panda decor, I just had to have matching invites...which is where my buddy Erin comes in. This girl is so amazing. I literally just sent her the wording I wanted and a link to the decor on Party Pail and she put together the most perfect invitation for Kenley.
I did, also, end up bringing some snacks and a special cake but other than that....The Little Gym did it all. We invited Kenley's 12 best friends and the super sweet and patient teachers we had did a great job of leading the kiddos in some fun! I told them I had pretty low expectations since our guest list's ages ranged from 2 months to 7 years, but that didn't slow them down a bit. The kids sang songs, had fun with a parachute, played basketball and {the highlight for Kenley} popped bubbles! It was the perfect mix of fun and chaos and I could have watched my baby and her friends play all day long.
Our cute little teachers tried their hardest to orchestrate a "team picture", bless their hearts, and this is the best we could do....
While it's far from perfect, we were almost able to get all 13 kids in attendance in this photo {baby Aleah is covered up by Big Sister Josie}...yes it's total chaos, but I love it so much!


After and hour of fun in the gym it was time for snacks & cake! I kept it simple with some healthy post-play snacks for the kiddos along with a delicious red velvet cake compliments of Target.
This party was so much fun and the most perfect way to celebrate our little girl. She is so lucky to have such awesome friends at such a young age and I am so excited to watch all these sweet kiddos grow over the years. And, a major thank you to Erin, Party Pail and The Little Gym for allowing me throw a party Kenley deserves without driving myself completely crazy over all the details {we'll save that for the 3rd b-day}.

My son turns 2 in June and I'm due with baby number 2 in April, so I've been thinking ahead about his birthday since I will have a new baby. I've thought about the little gym but wasn't sure if he would be too small still. Thanks for the great info!
