Ivo’s going to be two in a couple of weeks time, and I’m already getting way too exciting about planning it all. I got very into themes and decorations and stationery when I planned by wedding – so excited I started a blog about it all {Before the Big Day} – and now I treat every birthday party a bit like a mini-wedding. It’s a bit sad in some ways, because he’s got no idea what’s going on – but it makes me happy to have a creative outlet!

This year I’m going for a digger theme. We read Ivo the book Dig Dig Digging {the paper back version}, and it really captured his imagination. I think it’s partly because living in Dubai, you see A LOT of diggers and construction vehicles. They’re building everywhere!

I’ve already bought tonnes of toy construction cones, construction tape, paper hard hats and bucket and spade sets for going away presents. I’ll add yellow balloons and lots of homemade signs printed on orange and yellow card.

Now all I need to do is decide on the games. I’m definitely open to any suggestions – how on earth do you entertain twenty 2 year olds for two hours????? Check out my Pinterest page for more of my digger party ideas.
