Hip hop on over to kick it for Lucy’s two legit to quit 90’s hip hop birthday party…This two legit to quit 90’s hip hop birthday party was one of my favorite celebrations to both plan and be present for. It was full of carefree fun.
My little lady didn’t choose the two legit to quit 90’s hip hop birthday party theme but since she was only turning two, I figured she wouldn’t mind that I did. Last year we celebrated with a chubby bunny birthday since she was born our 10.4 lb beauty. She was tagged with the chubby bunny nickname so it fit perfectly. This year, we wanted something a bit more funky fun. I found this two legit 2 quit shirt and this invitation on Etsy and couldn’t resist building the entire theme around them. The best part about planning toddler birthday parties is that they see magic in any theme. They don’t care how many decorations there are or what the invitations look like. They love it no matter what. That means that we get to be creative and come up with themes that we love. I have always been a 90’s girl at heart. I went through many of my most impressionable years during the 90’s and loved all of the trends. My favorite though was hip hop music.
I like creating fresh new party themes and since this one had nothing online at the time of my styling it except for the invitation and kids shirt; I decided that a two legit to quit 90’s hip hop birthday party was a theme that would be fresh indeed! The food was all treats and in theme with the party. We displayed vanilla sandwich cookies with edible Wilton Gold Color Mist, two legit to quit frosted cassette tape sugar cookies, edible gold leaf flaked brownies, gold sprinkled cupcakes and grape juice filled baby bottles with gold lids. To make them, I bought these plastic bottles on Amazon then spray painted the lids. Be sure to give yourself enough time for them to dry thoroughly though. Sugar daddy suckers and a mini naked layer cake were also treats that guests got to enjoy. This cake was the perfect size for little lady.
I bought these plastic grillz for all the guests. It was hilarious to see the kids wearing them while smiling and laughing. Of course, we also had to have bling so I bought the plastic dollar sign necklaces. We kindly requested that everyone where backwards hats and any other 90’s attire they’d like. I couldn’t resist buying Josh this I like it when you call me big papa t-shirt. He was obviously thrilled…
For entertainment, we played a variation of duck, duck, goose by saying hip, hip hop. The kids (and adults) thought it was a hoot! We also played musical chairs with (age appropriate, edited) hip hop music. This was another exciting game that got the kiddos laughing and asking for more.
This truly was a celebration we will remember forever and not for the theme. Having family together while celebrating someone we adore so much is one of my favorite past times…
