My Party: Aidan

Salem, MA

Aidan's mom Tina had a great time putting together a party for him featuring his favorite thing: My son Aidan turned two in January. Aidan absolutely LOVES animals, so I decided that we were going to have an animal themed birthday party. I didn't really want it to be a typical "farm" theme though. So, since I am into polka dots lately (not sure why), the theme ended up being an animal/polka dot theme!

One thing I thought was to have a petting zoo. I loved the idea of simply having baby animals. I lucked out and found someone to bring her baby animal petting zoo to our house! Unfortunately it was in the middle of the winter, so I actually had to have them in my house, but it ended up working out fine. I incorporated the decorations with the favors. I had extra large polka dotted balloons, different dot and animal themed candies, animal cupcakes and plastic toy animals that made a noise when you squeezed their bellies. The guests got to take them all home! This was really a fun party to put together!

Thanks, Tina!
