  • Peach Cupcakes & Country Themed 2nd Birthday Celebration!
  • I can’t believe our sweet little curly-haired cutie pie is already 2 years old! We celebrated his special day with a ‘country themed’ party at his nanna and pop pop’s house on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We wanted a day that fun and laid back- just like him. That’s why we went with this ultra casual, rustic, party theme that brought our family together for a day full of laughs and memories.
  • The invitation I made. This set the tone for his country themed birthday party! (His name is not Keets- that’s just a nickname, but if you’ve been a reader for awhile you know that I don’t mention my kids by name for their privacy.)
  • Our little guy loves the pool, so it’s a good thing he has a summer birthday and can have a swimming party! He splashed and kicked all afternoon long with his cousins and big brother. The kids also formed teams and had an epic water balloon battle. The water balloons were a last minute purchase, and were the best $2 I’ve ever spent!
  • When their little feet were weary from the water, we took a break to sing happy birthday and enjoy some sweet treats. In keeping with our rustic country theme, we had a delicious peach pie and some amazing peach cupcakes. These cupcakes taste like they were picked fresh from the orchard- light and fluffy peach frosting tops a sweet, moist cake, and inside is a surprise bite of fresh, juicy, peach filling. It was the perfect treat to celebrate our little guy’s 2nd birthday! Oh, and did I mention that they are gluten free and have no refined sugar? That makes them even sweeter!
  • We had a wonderful day and I’m pretty sure the birthday boy knew that it was all for him. I really love the way that the details of this party all came together. Red gingham paired with turquoise blue set the perfect background for our country themed celebration. I used an antique window frame to display his photos and hung a handmade bunting banner on the porch for some extra decor.
  • Here’s a look at our 2 year old’s special celebration… oh, and I’ve included a recipe for these amazing peach cupcakes too!
  • If you follow me on Instagram (follow me by clicking here), then you already saw a sneak peak of the party
  • A bunting banner always makes a party more festive, don’t you think? This one is homemade with supplies I bought at Paper Source.
  • This antique window frame was the perfect way to display the birthday boy’s photos!

  • The perfect place to have a party- look at all of those flowers!
  • And speaking of flowers, my sweet 5 yr old hand picked these for the party. This mason jar was the perfect way to display them!
  • The birthday boy loved splashing in the pool! (No wisecracks about me in a bathing suit haha!)
  • This birthday boy loves books and adores Peppa Pig!
  • We all finished the day here, completely exhausted but full of joy.
