Real Parties: Taya Turns Two-ey

When your daughter’s favorite show is Bluey, and she’s turning the big two-ey, it’s clear what to do-ey! Mama Bre Sheppard went all out for her daughter Taya’s 2nd birthday, complete with a beautiful color palette, scrumptious caramel cake and of course, lots of Bluey decor. Here’s how she made it happen!


Key details

Name of party: Taya Turns Two-ey

City: Seattle, WA

Theme: Taya loves the kids’ TV show Bluey, so we did a play on words…Taya Turns Two-ey! The theme colors were mainly blue and orange, with pops of pink. 


How the party came to life

Evite invitation: Preppy Plaid

Venue: Our home

Cake and dessert: Kendal Jean Bakes made the most incredible brown butter & caramel cake. She did a peach/pink base and details of blue, and then I added the Bluey figurine and candle on top. It was the perfect pop of color for the party. Her cakes are incredible!

Food: We made a few charcuterie boards, goat cheese & fig bites, and caramel with apples.

Florals: We kept it simple with white hydrangeas.

Beverages: OLIPOP, orange juice and Poppi drinks. 

Decor: Most of my decor was from Etsy and Amazon. I bought a balloon arch kit and then other colors of pink & orange balloons to add to it. We added a large Bluey balloon as well! I have made a few balloon arches, and it helps to have the balloon pump haha! I bought some little Bluey and Bingo cutouts for the charcuterie board, orange and blue twisted candles from Amazon, and plates/cups/napkins from Etsy.

Favorite gifts received: Taya loves drawing, and she got an art easel that is so cute. Lots of drawing notebooks, markers, and some new fake food for her play kitchen. 

The surprise hit: I knew the cake was going to be delicious (we bought a cake from the same baker last year) but it was so amazing and everyone was loving it. It was gorgeous but we were also obsessed with the huge layers of caramel in the cake. 

Party favors: I bought a set of white party bags from Amazon and inside them, I added BEAR fruit roll snacks, an Honest juice box, a custom Bluey drawing from Etsy that said “Taya Turns 2”, washable markers, a gecko from the episode of Bluey called “Sticky Gecko,” two small notepads for drawing, smiley stickers, and Bluey straws. The girls all got hair scrunchies as well.

Outfits: Taya’s dress was a blue tulle dress from Amazon!
