Birthday Inspiration via Pinterest

Today I got to spend some time finding inspiration for Melody's 2nd birthday.

Lately Melody has been learning her ABC's from a LeapFrog video we got her for Christmas. I thought it would be so cute to do an Alphabet birthday party for her and hear her say her letters all afternoon. I got excited thinking about decorating with letters all around the house and then using them later for educational use!

Here are some ideas I like for our party. Click on the links to find out more about them.

An idea for a photo wall at the party. I would make it my own, but I love the idea!

Free printables I could hang as decorations.

Thank you Martha Stewart for this banner and game idea!

And last but not least, an idea for a cupcake cake.

Now that you have seen the ideas, I guess you will have to wait until after Melody's birthday (the end of March) to see it all come together!

In the mean time, if you have any other alphabet birthday ideas, be sure to send them my way!
