Party Recap

When my youngest turned two, he specifically requested a bagel party. So we humored him by throwing a little soiree at home with bagels to eat, bagels to look at, and bagels to play with. He loved every bit of it.


Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Big brother put on his plaid button-down, then dressed it up with a black-and-white checkered tie for the occasion.

  • Desserts

    Cinnamon-raisin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting that came out tasting surprisingly like cinnamon-raisin bagels. N's aunt made the favors: a dozen little bagel cookies in plain, poppy seed, cinnamon-raisin, and sesame.

  • Activities / Games

    N's aunt also made a giant poster of his likeness, with which the kids played the bagel toss.

  • Best Moment

    As N showed his aunt all of the party decorations, he said to her, eyes wide and so proud, "Mama made it."

  • What People Ate

    We did a brunch, featuring an assortment of bagels (of course) and an assortment of cream cheeses and other spreads. Fruit salad, bacon and lil' smokies, roasted potatoes, and an avocado/tomato salad rounded out the mix.

  • What People Drank

    Orange juice, Dunkin' Donuts coffee, water

  • Most Touching Moment

    Seeing N's face as everyone sang him "happy birthday," and it clicked for him that all of this was especially for him.

  • Funniest Moment

    Watching the boys' little friends try and try and try to toss bagels in the big poster mouth.

    I love that you chose something he really loved and created a party around it even though it's not a traditional theme. Very, very cute. :)
