Ideas for your 2nd birthday party theme

Having trouble thinking of a theme for your child's 2nd birthday party? We've got some great ideas. If your little one is fascinated by space, the planets, and stars, throw a space-themed party. Choose a space-themed invitation, have a rocket-shaped cake for dessert, and add some space-themed birthday party decorations. For entertainment, screen a movie all about astronauts and aliens. Is your little one more or an animal lover? Start with an animal-themed invitation and plan an outing to the zoo so your child can enjoy giraffes online and in real life!

Frequently asked questions

For party planning made simple, check out the answers to our most commonly asked 2nd birthday planning questions!

What should I write on my 2nd birthday party invitations?

Be sure you share all relevant information on your 2nd birthday party invitations. Keep your invitation wording simple. Start with the time, place, and date of the event. If you're hosting an outdoor event, suggest a dress code or some essentials parents might want to bring, like sunscreen or hats. Let guests know if gifts are welcome and what type of food or drink to expect. If you'll be having activities or entertainment, add that to your description, too.

When should I send my 2nd birthday party invitations?

We recommend sending out invitations 6 to 8 weeks before the party date. But with any party, the sooner the better! That way, if any of your guests need a reminder (or two), they'll be sure to RSVP in time. We make it easy to keep track of your guests with RSVP tracking, guest list management, and guest messaging. You can even send reminders using our guest messaging so they don't forget about their RSVP!
