Vroom Vroom….Beep Beep

Hudson will be 2 tomorrow!!! I cannot believe how the time flew by my little baby is a full blown toddler. It is so crazy to think about. Before things get busy with family in town, parties and dinner to make I wanted to share Hudson’s Birthday Party.

He is obsessed with trucks, trains and tractors. So I opted for an on-the-go party. There are a TON of suggestions and ideas on pintrest for this type of party. I had to so much fun getting everything gathered and set up. I would recommend a notebook to keep everything straight. I wrote out the guest list, the food names and food items needed. Hudson’s party was at 11:30 am so I set up as much as possible the night before. Prepped all the food so the morning would be smooth sailing…. (Do you see what I did there…)

Hudsons’ cake was made from my friend Ali from Plum Cakery. She made his cake last year, you can check it out here. She is our OFFICIAL family baker. Her cakes are delicious and she does amazing work.

Most of the food names I found on pintrest and the decorations were bought at Target, as well as partypail.com Party pail was amazing. Lots of choices and good prices, I also received all the items in three days, which helped since I wanted to set up as much as possible ahead of time.

We served veggies, fruit, chicken nuggets, cake and little candies. The kids could choose from orange juice or water. Parents were offered coffee, hot apple cider, bloody mary’s, mimosas,…(no SHAME..). Let’s me honest a little alcohol makes a kid’s birthday more bearable. I also thought the drink choices fitted with a brunch option since the party started at 11:30 am.

I ordered the invitations from MerrimintPress from Etsy. She was great to work with and worked quickly which was perfect since I was a little late on sending invitations out.

Hudson had such a great day with friends and family. I hope we helped with your little’s next birthday. What are your time saving tips for party planning?
