Turning two is cause for celebration and the adorable signage created for the dessert table is not only bright and happy, but also an appropriate reminder of the guest of honor’s new age. It’s a perfect centerpiece for the table. Neatly arranged on a red tablecloth, clear glass vessels and cake stands provide a home for colorful candy and treats. I love how the ball theme is carried throughout the dessert offerings with cupcakes and a coordinating cake decked out in fondant circles (balls) and dressed up with a printable cake topper. Printable toppers are an affordable and easy DIY way to add some pizzazz to your cake! Candy choices also coordinated well with the theme and color palette. Mini gumballs, Skittles and gummy bears in rainbow colors were both treats and decor!

A separate beverage station is always a great idea when more space is needed. The custom chalkboard with details about the birthday boy is a charming touch that enlightened guests and served as a nice focal point for the beverage station. It’s a great keepsake post-party to capture all of the physical particulars and personality traits of the guest of honor.

The bright honeycomb balls and custom chandeliers are fun overhead details; I love when people remember to decorate unexpected spaces like ceilings and floors!

One thing that really helps this party stand out is the mix of eye-catching primary colors and fun polka-dotted patterns used on the printables and throughout the styling. Birthday boy Boone’s love of balls is definitely showcased in the festive details. I especially love how the printable banners pop against the colored tablecloths and the way that containers of balls are used as décor throughout the party space.

Custom clothing is all the rage and the birthday boy looks adorable in his bouncy ball birthday party shirt! How fun for him to have a reminder of his special day to wear long after the party is over. Turning two definitely looks like it was a ball for little Boone!
