My baby girl turned 2 last week. Gosh, that went fast. We threw an “Ok-2-berfest” 2nd birthday party for her and invited her grandparents to come and celebrate with us. Since I lived in Germany for a year back in my college days, I tied in some of my favorite things from Germany: Haribo gummies, brats (totally American style!), soft pretzels, and root beer since we don’t drink beer around here. I think everyone had fun! I know I did!
Evelyn loved the balloons, especially the letter ones.
^Haribo makes hands down, the BEST gummies around. So we had to give our guests the best.
^The menu: brats, soft pretzels with homemade cheese dipping sauce (recipe below!), salad, fruit, and root beer. A root beer taste-testing to be exact. Stay tuned for all those details!
I’m not a cake expert, so I opted for chocolate cupcakes (recipe using a cake mix below) instead with yogurt-pretzel toppers. Pretzels are very German so I was happy with this super easy cake solution.
I’m so glad my Evelyn loves to party as much as I do! But if she would just stop growing up so fast. I’d be much happier!
And that’s our Ok-2-berfest 2nd birthday party! Danke for reading! 🙂
