I had a hard time deciding on a theme for my daughter’s second birthday and was torn between a classic farm party (because she loved cows so much) and a ballerina party (because she loved dancing so much) and then it hit me – do both! I decided to throw a MooMoos & TuTus Party, pun intended for it being the second birthday. I loved how original this was and appreciated the fact that this wasn’t something you had seen on Pinterest a thousand times. This was fun for both boys AND girls. All of the girls received pink tutus to wear and the boys received handmade cow print ties. We played a bunch of kid games in the "kid corral" (punch a bunch cow, tutu water toss, milk can toss and cow pin bowling) and served cookies and what other than MILK!? We knew we couldn’t serve beef at a cow party so we served Chick-Fil-A where it is encouraged to “eat more chicken!” I served prepackaged boxes of "kids meals" which included Chick-Fil-A nuggets, cooked carrots and grapes. As a party guest I always get busy making plates for the kids and I never get to eat so having the kid sized table with the kid meals allowed the parents to enjoy a hassle free lunch! The kids received tulle wands and cow whips to run around with. It was a lot of fun as you can see by the photos.
What People Ate
Chick-Fil-A nuggest for the kids, Chick-Fil-A sandwiches for the adjusts and tutu twisted pasta salad.
What People Drank
Pretty in Pink Lemonade pre-packaged in mason jars and sitting in ice, cold water and MILK of course! Regular, chocolate and strawberry were all served.
Pink cow cookies, chocolate dipped rice krispie treats and cake!
The kids received the handmade cow bags and at each game station in the kid corral they received a prize. Everybody is a winner at the Kiddie Corral! The children also received the wands and/or whips as well as customized milk bottles with their names.
Activities / Games
The Kiddie Corral kept the kids roped in a central area and they were free to wander and play at each game station. Tutu water toss (fishbowls with water where they tossed the ping pong ball in). Punch a bunch Cow Print Edition (pick a punch to stick your hand in and win all of the candy there). Milk Jug cow toss (tossing stuffed cows into a large vintage milk jug). Cow Tipping (bowling with cow print bowling pins).
