a second birthday?

seriously. already? UGH. 
kullen's first birthday was ALL me - since he wasn't old enough to officially be 'into' anything yet!
we, of course, went with the 'rock star' theme. 
i debated doing something similar again this year but decided against it.

he is a whole YEAR older and definitely has his interests.
after contemplating those [which include: elmo, cars/trucks/buses, Capitals, dogs, yo gabba gabba and/or monkeys] i decided to go with yo gabba gabba!

i don't want to just order all the cheesy crap from the party site; i want it to be creative and his own! 
& i'm not wasting money on themed plates, cups, napkins again! i'll just do plain colors that coordinate with my decor because let's face it - who gives a hoot about plates!

i shamelessly stole all these from etsy and plan on purchasing some and of course some DIY. [like the banner, come on - i can do that, right!]
i'm also contemplating purchasing the silhouette SD machine, finally. 
this will help me on the DIY stuff!

whatcha' think? ;]


[similar banner - probably what i'll go with]

[invite - will be purchasing and printing myself]

[gift bags!]


[favor lollipops!]

[ok - how awesome would i be if i crocheted these little dolls for the kids as favors!]

how about these cakes??!
dude, that first one would be SWEEEEET!

anyone else have some super creative birthday idea's?!
yo gabba gabba themed, of course?
maybe my husband will paint himself black and dress up as DJ Lance!
