Party Recap

For my daughter's second birthday, we celebrated all things summer with lots of messy water play, bubbles and, of course, POPSICLES! We created a life-size popsicle truck where guests could order their flavor of choice. To round out the food, we had a "chip bar" with a variety of chips for guests to create their own mix, and further highlighted the popsicle theme with the most adorable popsicle cookies and a beautiful popsicle drip cake. In addition to a traditional inflatable pool for swimming, we set up three sensory stations: rainbow bubbles, water beads, and a create-your-own bubbles station. For an added element of fun, I DIY-ed a huge popsicle piñata filled with all sorts of summery goodies. Guests went home with homemade popsicle-shaped sidewalk chalk as a thank you for celebrating with us. This party was truly "two cool," just perfect for our fun-loving 2-year-old!

    We bought two sheets of plywood, and my husband cut them into the truck shape. He built some supports behind it then nailed the two pieces onto the supports. I wanted it to have a watercolor appearance (similar to the invitation), so I used exterior paint and sprayed it with a waterbottle as I went. For the canopy, I used an IKEA canopy and recovered it with fabric to match our party colors.
