What would you dress your 2 yr old in for her birthday party?

Budget up to around £30 and have to be able to buy it online.

Any ideas?

What are you doing for the party? Accessorize if you are doing a family thing.
Pretty tunic dress and shorts/leggings if she is larking about

Leggings and tshirt? That's what my DD wore to her 2nd birthday party; and her third. We had a bouncy castle/slide thing up in the garden so stretchy and comfy was perfect.

Denim dungaree shorts and T-shirt (next)

And actually it will probably be jeans and tshirt for her 4th in Sept as she wants a den building party like DS3 had.

Depends what you're doing, inside/outside etc?

Thanks, it's just a hired out hall with party games. She usually lives in leggings and tops from H&M so thought I would get her something nice but I'm a bit clueless what's out there.

If you're meaning a pretty dress then IMO they're pretty impractical for a party. I know my boys would hate to be constrained by a puffy dress so I always assume DD would be the same.

Monsoon has the same kind of gear only a bit pricier. Prepare for her to get it wonderfully messy.

Have a look on eBay for monsoon party dresses

Next "I Am 2" tshirt. Comfort trumps everything for kids!

Polarn y Pyret has some nice things in the sale.

this and these? Very pretty and totally practical.

MrsLettuce Sat 01-Jul-17 21:40:53

X post. Yes indeed

Looking back at dd's 2nd birthday photos, nothing at all as she took everything off and ran around starkers for most of the day grin

DandelionAndBedrock Sat 01-Jul-17 21:45:09

Yay, I always think you have great taste MrsLettuce. Although I was eyeing up the flamingo jumpsuit and blithely ignoring toileting impracticalities grin.

One of these dresses, currently on sale at Boden.
