Milo's Yo Gabba Gabba Party!

Since we lived in Seattle last year Milo didn't get to have a big huge 1st birthday party with all of our family and friends. So, while I'm not a big fan of the giant-invite-everyone-you-know-party for every birthday, I though Milo deserved to have his big party still!

For his 2nd birthday we did a Yo Gabba Gabba themed party. He loves Yo Gabba Gabba, and really, I don't mind them either, as far as kids shows go.

Here's a reference in case you live under a rock don't have a toddler.

The invite, from here, which I love!
We had the party in my mom's church basement since we're still living in her house, which is too small for that many people inside.

Cake Table

Complete with yo gabba gabba cupcakes...

and this amazing Brobee cake my mom made.
Love it so much!

With photos of Milo from the last 2 years hanging over the cake.

The Tables

With a variety of Yo Gabba Gabba coloring pages for the kids (and adults!) to color while they hang out.

These marshmallow sticks turned out so cute and were a huge hit with the little ones! I was I could take credit from the idea, but they came from this super smart lady.

Bowls of m&ms, cheese balls, and colored goldfish on all the tables - pretty much Milo's most favorite things!

The super cute DIY banner I got from this shop.

The favors - cookies and Yo Gabba Gabba mix cds, done by Milo's Grandma and Grandpa Levitt.

Party Time!

What? You don't eat your m&ms with a spoon, like cereal?!

Its important for the birthday boy to try the cake AND the cupcakes for good measure!

Not great, but probably the best picture of the 3 of us. I made us all shirts - Doug is DJ Lance, I'm Foofa, and Milo is Brobee!

This is AMAZING! I am currently planning a Yo Gabba Gabba party for my sons b-day and this is great inspiration. Did you make the shirt too?
