So make sure that each one of your toddler birthday party ideas give them a fun filled magical time.
2nd Birthday parties are best held at home where the birthday girl is most familiar with her surroundings.
You can, however, hold your party at a local toddler activity centre, which is what I did for my eldest daughters 2nd Birthday.
Doing this requires a lot less work and planning as most of the food, games and party bags are usually arranged by the centre.
Just remember that wherever you host the party dont invite too many guests or your toddler will be overwhelmed.
You also need to choose a theme for the party. At this age your little girl will have her favorite toy, television program or songs. So try and incorporate this into your 2 year olds birthday party.
Try and pick a theme that she will recognize and likes. Fairy parties are usually a good choice for this age as little girls love anything pink and sparkly.
For other party ideas visit Pink Heaven Occasions kids party ideas page. Or for a 2nd Birthday in a box why not purchase a girls Lil' Cupcake 2nd Birthday Deluxe Party Pack if your in the USA or Fairy Princess if your in the UK, which contain everything you need to throw a perfectly pink party.
But be warned the packs are so cute you won't want to let any of the kids eat off them!
A unique 2nd birthday party idea is to get your child involved in making homemade party invitations.
Sticking to the fairy theme lets go all out for our toddlers birthday party ideas and make some hand painted fairy invitations.
Use some A4 pink card folded in half. Turn the card so that the fold is at the top of the invite. Have a tray with some pink paint in and get your little Pink Heaven Party Angel to place both hands in the paint.
Their hand prints then need to go with their fingers of each hand pointing to the outside of the card. These will be the fairy wings so you will need to leave a small space in-between the wings for the fairys body which can be painted with some white paint.
Use some pink mixed with white for the fairys face and some yellow for the hair. When the paint is dry you can add the face details with a colored pen.
At the bottom of the card using a silver pen write (birthday girls name)s 2nd Birthday Party
Then on the inside you can write the party details:
To (guests name)
Please will you flutter on over to (birthday girls name)s 2nd birthday celebration on (date and time of party) at the magical fairy hideaway at (address of party).
Please wear your best fairy wings and costume.
You can also buy Fairy Princess invitations from Party Delights in the UK.
Another theme you could use is a Lil' Cupcake theme. For this 2nd Birthday party idea for an invitation you can make pink cupcake shaped invitations and decorate with sprinkles.
Dont forget to stick a shiny red cherry on top, made from metallic paper. Or if your pressed for time just purchase ready made Lil' Cupcake invitations (USA).
Pink Heaven Party Angels of this age love to dress up so request that they wear themed dressing up clothes to the party or a pretty pink party dress.
As an alternative you can provide some dressing up clothes. Use old clothes or any dressing up items you have in the house.
Also provide tiaras, wands and costume jewelery which can be purchased quite cheaply.

If you have the budget, a fun filled toddler birthday party idea is to hire a bouncy castle. If you already own a small bouncy castle that should be fine, unless you have a lot of guests.
