Master L turns two!

You may remember this post... where I talked about Master L turning 1... Go on... check it out I will wait for you...

I know, I can not believe he is two either!

Feels like just yesterday.

ANYWAY, I helped again!
We I learnt a lot from last years party preparation extravaganza SO, when we started brain storming for L's 2nd party I laid down some rules said;

"Think of all the things that you want to do, and take off one thing from each category...or two"

You see this is how it goes.

My dear friend... Lady S, 
She is a thinker... she thinks up EXTRAVAGANT plans and writes them down...

She then comes to me, and I make them work for her.

We then work together and create all the things that is required. She cooks and bakes (it's her thing) and I create and make (It's my thing)

Then if need be, we get the Husbands, hers and mine to build, create, clean, stick together, construct, find, hammer, rally, hang... basically do the handy work.

They are handy like that.

We are a great team!

Its a lot of work... but geez its fun!

And the children's faces... GOLD!

Here is the day...

 The marquee all ready

It wouldn't be a party with out a table full of food

A special cake for a special boy

Then after our tummy's were full we ventured to the grass where... 
It wouldn't be a Jungle Party without some animals

The gorgeous Charlie the Crocodile
Having a 'cuddle' with Silver the Olive Python

Then after we had seen a multitude of turtles, lizards, snakes & Charlie the Crocodile we played a Jungle game/obstacle course... which the children LOVED and repeated it about 10 times each.

Twas a great day.

All reports say that everyone had a great time and the Birthday boy was celebrated and at the end of the day that is the main thing.


Whats next Lady S?

Celebrated any birthdays lately?
Do you do themes for parties?
Whats the most extravagant one you've been to?

This post is not at all sponsored...
I was just purely sharing the love... everyone needs party ideas.
Although if they wanted to, I could get my people to talk to their people and we could be a thing... 

Your comments are not only awesome! They are inspiring!
Thank you.


  1. What a great theme! I love all the animal print ideas. Party planning is so fun but it is pretty all consuming. I did the Hungry Caterpillar theme for my son's 1st birthday but wasn't up to another party already for his second. My baby is turning 1 in May and I'm planning a vintage planes theme party. Congrats on your big 2 year old.

    1. You are so right! It is so much fun but so time/brain/life consuming.

      He isn't my big two year old he is my gorgeous friends youngest, my two are 4.9 and almost 8 months.

      Vintage plans sound like an awesome theme! Have fun with that one!

      Thanks for stopping by Kate x

  2. Looks like an awesome party! I used to like doing this sort of thing but for adults, before I had kids. At this stage there isn't much point throwing this kind of party for my munchkins, but when they get bigger it will be all systems go! #teamIBOT

    1. It is good fun, the children's ages at the party ranged from 2-12 and they all got something out of it which is awesome!

      I have never even considered a themed party for adults... no my brain is whirring with ideas!

      Thanks for stopping by Kylie x

  3. Awesome party!!
    I confess I don't really do themes for kids birthdays. I just make fairy bread and hope they have fun ;)

    1. Fairy bread FTW!!!
      It was a great fun! I think I'm just as big of a kid as they are.

      Thanks Jess x

  4. I love it! The jungle obstacle course is genius (love the 'vines') and the table looks terrific. What a great party, Tara. I'm such a sucker for them. x

    1. Thanks Bron!

      We love them too! Can not wait for my two boys to have theirs in the mid year!


  5. What an awesome idea for a party and I totally need one of those do not feed the animals sign for my house ;) x

    1. Thanks Sonia! Yes I think we all need one of those signs at some stage or another!
