my daughter's 2nd birthday party- Dora theme!

My little girl recently turned 2 and a Dora party seemed the perfect theme for the occasion. 
She loves Dora!

I made & mailed out these invitations...

It was harder than I thought to find Dora party stuff! It seems to be all Princess of Tinkerbell for girl's party stuff. I managed to find some Dora stuff, I made up some, and I decided that pink, orange, and purple was a fitting colour scheme to have as well.

We ordered pizza & had that set up in the kitchen & the other stuff was set up at the table like so....

I made tissue paper pom pom- so easy & inexpensive and they are just so perfect for a girl's party!

We had veggies & dip and chips to eat with the pizza...

The large pink clothespin held one of her invitations.

I had a square bowl upside down as a stand to set the stack of party hats on. My daughter wore hers for the entire party which was super cute! She was just in heaven with all the Dora stuff & all her guests there (extended family!)

I covered water bottles & the 2L bottles of pop (orange, cream soda, and grape- the party colours!) in Dora wrapping paper.

At the dollar store I found a Dora calendar for a buck, so I cut out 3 of the pictures from that to add to the wall...

And these removable wall stickers were another thing that made my daughter happy...

The cups were in the party section at Toys R Us and were the only Dora thing they had. 
They were great to hold our plastic cutlery for dessert time.

At cake time, the table was set up like this....

Along with her cake, we had a jar of jelly beans, a jar filled with little boxes of smarties & then I made up different chocolate-dipped pretzels and some marshmallow pops...

The marshmallow pops...

I like to do up little treat bags for my kids & their cousins!

One of the things I included were packs of Smarties...

.... that I covered with Dora scrapbook paper!

The treat bag goodies.......

Each bag had: stickers, blow-out toy, Dora gummies, and the Smarties.

But the best part of the party, was how much my daughter loved it!
She had such a fun time!!

  5. Your daughter is just adorable. This totally takes me back. My oldest daughter, who is now 10, LOVED Dora (she would not be happy to see me type this now). We had 2 or 3 Dora parties for her. I love the way you used the wrapping paper and the calendar. Very clever! Cute party!

  6. This party is so cute! My daughter turns 2 in October, and my husband and I have decided on a Dora Fiesta theme. I'll HAVE to use some of your decorating ideas... they are too stinkin' cute!
