We celebrated Olivia's 2nd Birthday this past August.  I decided on an outdoor garden party with a pink and green palette. Guests enjoyed painting their own mini terracotta garden pots created with you guessed it- pink or green paintbrushes!  It was a perfect day for our little princess.

This was an easy theme to choose!  Anyone who has a 4 year old boy will know how much little boys admire their superheroes.  Batman is Simon's favourite so we opted for yellow, black and silver as the colour scheme.
