Connor's Second Birthday Pool Party with Crab & Bubbles Theme

This birthday swimming pool party looks like a blast! I was so thrilled to help Connor's mommy, Ashley, by designing a happy birthday banner, bubble party favors, and confetti to perfectly match the crab and bubbles theme for his party.

I love all the little details Ashley added like the crab ribbon around the cupcake serving dish! I'm a big believer that small details make a big impression, and this party definitely had quite a few! The cupcake toppers below were created by The Birthday House on Etsy.

Here's what Ashley had to say about the Connor's 2nd birthday party:
"The pool was a hit; the kids loved the pool toys! Connor loved opening presents this year but was only interested in the toy presents. All the adults loved the decorations! I loved how everything turned out and how excited Connor was!"

This is Connor's pre-party birthday t-shirt and shorts. His crab birthday party outfit is absolutely adorable. Ashley ordered it from Sew Spoiled Children's Clothing & Fabric Shoppe on Etsy.

The festive pool party invitations and favor tags were created by Sweet Wishes Stationery.

Ashley sent me a picture of Connor's party invitation and said she needed a "Happy Birthday" banner and bubble favors to match. I found some bubbly light blue paper and matched the font perfectly with invitations to help her create a seamless theme. Working with Belly Feathers is super simple!

There couldn't be a more perfect crab party decoration than this beachy crab balloon. Who wouldn't smile at the sight of him?!

I love the way Ashley displayed the cute sea-themed plates and napkins in these metal tubs. It's a great way to keep these looking neat and in place, while letting their designs decorate the table. I included the personalized confetti as a little surprise with Ashley's order.

The number 2 suckers Ashley found are perfect for a second birthday party. They were made by Sweet Lollipop Shop on Etsy.

These labeled jars are a fun way to display goodies and party treats for the guests.

Thanks to Ashley for sharing her pool party ideas and wonderful pictures! It looks like Connor and all his friends had a fabulous time at the party! It certainly has given me a lot of great second birthday party ideas and pool party inspiration.
