Welcome To Bella's Chick-Fil-A: 2nd Birthday Party Details

If you know me, you know I love to celebrate.

I've always said I'd love to be an event planner, and maybe one day when Bella is a little older I can pursue this on the side. I have SO much fun thinking of ideas, executing the fun and taking part in every detail. Last year, for Bella's first birthday we celebrated with Bella's Candyland: Turning 1 Is Sweet, and we had originally planned for a Taco Twosday (yes, I had already bought some decor in January) when Bella changed things up. Our little babe no longer enjoys tacos or quesadillas and how can you have a taco party for a girl who doesn't eat them?!
You know what she does love though...and that's Chick-Fil-A (we raise them right), especially frennnnn-friiiiiies (french fries)!!! So, why not have a Chick-Fil-A themed party?! After all, we had their nuggets at our gender reveal...and here we are two years later eating them at another celebration.
Bella KNOWS Chick-Fil-A and it is so precious that the minute we pull up she repeats fren-friiiiies over and over until she gets one. She's been a fan since she's been able to eat solids and this theme was so easy to pull together.
We threw the party at our neighborhood clubhouse, not actual Chick-Fil-A, since 1- it's WAY too busy on a Saturday afternoon and 2- ours is currently closed for 5 weeks for renovations and expansions. Thank goodness for family who lives near a restaurant a few hours away and was able to bring the nuggets to us.
The details:
Invitations- we took pictures on a Sunday when Chick-Fil-A was closed for Bella's invitation and to use for some of the decor. A few people stopped by wondering if they were open, ha-ha!  I made them in PicMonkey, so easy and fun to create. Bella had to have her baby in her pictures, and perfect because she's a cow! lol
Food- of course, Chick-Fil-A nugget tray, some pizzas, chips, Rice Krispie treats because Bella LOVES them and the best cookies- from Sugarstorm Cookies (her talent is amazing). 
Decor- I kept things pretty simple with red, black, white and cow print. Biana recommended this electric pump and made blowing up the balloons SO easy. I made a balloon garland in no time at all.
We had some Chick-Fil-A coloring sheets, cornhole, and of course the most enjoyment came from the balloons! Some Chick-Fil-A boxes and cups, along with some plush cows were used thanks to our local restaurant. I added some pictures of Bella enjoying Chick-Fil-A that I had been saving since we thought of the theme. There's so much cow print on Amazon that was easy to find some other little touches, such as a banner and straws.
I made a photo booth fairly quickly with some crepe streamers and tape with these instructions- super easy! Luckily, Chick-Fil-A font is easy to find online, and I made a few signs for the photo booth fun. A table was also set up with some fun pictures of Bella at Chick-Fil-A and some CFA swag!
Cake- We didn't do cake for the whole group, just treats. But I did make a "2" cake for Bella from Rice Krispies, since they are her favorite sweet treat. It turned out pretty good and was so easy to make- I think this may be our go to year after year. I got the mold from Hobby Lobby for just a few dollars.
We had such a fun day, Bella was SO whooped after all the fun playing with her friends and family.

Just thinking about how our girl turns 2 next week makes me tear up, so I'll save all the emotions for that post. Thank you to all our sweet family and wonderful friends who came to celebrate our special girl, I can't believe how fast she's growing!
Bella Charles, Mommy loves you more than Chick-Fil-A and that's a whoooooole lot!

Thanks for reading everyone, have a great start to the week!
