3. Two Fast

Rev up the excitement with a race car-themed party. Use black-and-white checkered balloons and mini cars for decorations.

4. Two Sweet

Indulge in a sweet-as-pie celebration with a candy and sweets-themed party. Hang candy-colored balloons and sprinkle confetti on tabletops. A dessert bar filled with cupcakes, donuts, and bowls of candy will satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. Send guests home with an ice cream party hat and a baggie of their favorite treats.

5. Taco Twosday

Spice things up with a fiesta-themed birthday party! Create a DIY taco station and provide a variety of fillings to cater to different tastes and dietary restrictions.
