Our sweet Eloise Caroline just turned 2 years old and we threw her the most colorful adorable Party Animal Birthday Party last weekend. Eloise LOVES animals, particularly safari animals. She refers to every animal by the sound that they make. She even has a lion binky that she calls “ROOOOAARR” with the growl and everything. We just knew our animal-loving girl would love the theme! We rented a bouncy house, which I’ve never done before! It was so affordable! Our oldest’s birthday is in December and it’s always so hard to fit everyone in the house during the really cold months and we end up spending hundreds of dollars renting a space. We got our bouncy house from Blue Moon Party Rentals and it was under $150! Highly recommend them!
Setting up the party was fairly easy. If you’ve never set up a balloon arch, they’re seriously so easy! Don’t be intimidated if you have never done one. We just use this balloon arch strip that you can get off of Amazon. You just loop the ends of different sized balloons through the holes and you’re all done! Another Wichita favorite vendor is Love of Character. That place is SO DREAMY. We purchased her number balloon, had it aired up there and purchased an adorable “2” sparkler candle. I could seriously spend hours in that store. Everything is so beautiful!
I made ice cream cone cupcakes for the first time ever and that was actually pretty easy! Just fill sugar cones 3/4 the way full with cake batter, place in a mini muffin tin and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. They were a huge hit! Eloise LOVED them.
Here are a few other photos from the party. I’ll list the sources below. Let me know if I leave out any info you’d like! This party theme is seriously so fun and an adorable option for a toddler birthday!
