Since Jax’s birthday was a wild biker bash, it’s only natural she looked the part!
I commissioned a friend to create a “leather” vest for her, complete with embroidered “Born 2 Be Wild” patch on the back and name on the front.
I really wish we had got photographs of the back of the vest, but you’ll have to take my word – it was to die for. So stinkin’ adorable.
A two year-old biker chick?
It slays me.
Death by preciousness.
Speaking of cuteness, my husband designed these “oil cans” to fit the bad-ass theme and hold straws and utensils. He designed the labels and we taped them to empty soup and tomato cans. Easy and awesome. Inspiration came from here.
I found these cool metal mini motorcycles at Hobby Lobby. I spotted them months ago and checked back every couple weeks to see when they were on sale. Lucky me, a few landed on the clearance shelves – score!
I really can’t stress enough how important it is to plan ahead and shop early! My husband literally thought I was insane when I was buying stuff in early winter for Jax’s mid-summer birthday. But it pays off! I procrastinate for everything in life, but never for parties.
Lastly, it is my belief that when you have a themed party and a house full of guests, the theme should be carried out everywhere the guests have access. Even the bathrooms. It makes the party more special and adds an extra bit of fun.
Decking out the bathroom was pretty easy for the theme. We simply put out Jax’s daddy’s biker gear. Gloves and helmet displayed on the counter, leather jacket hung on the shower curtain and a rest-stop sign on the door. Done!
I really hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my Jacquelyn’s “Born 2 Be Wild” 2nd Birthday Biker Bash, I certainly had fun planning it, and most importantly — she had a blast at it.
