Harper's Second Birthday Planning

I cannot believe tomorrow is already April! Time truly does fly by when you have a little one. It is bittersweet because I love watching my babe grow from a teeny tiny newborn to a sassy toddler but sloooow dowwwn... :( 
Because time doesn't stop for anyone or anything I have already been planning Harper's 2nd birthday (June 24th). I know i have like 3 months till then but because of the procrastinator that I am, it needs to be done. Now. This is also going to sound even sillier but I don't think we are going to have any kind of over planned party because last years first birthday party was just too stressful for me. I would rather have a day of fun with my girl and shower her with gifts and goods times rather than spend unnecessary money on party crap that she really doesn't even care about. Another reason for no party is because pretty much all of our friends are kid less which means Harper doesn't really have any playmates so its just gonna be all about her ;)
So for Harps big day I am planning an extra over the top outfit of course which is where most of my "planning" is headed. I am thinking black and white (since its my favorite trend right now) and summery bold colors like a poppy red, fuchsia, radiant orchid, a touch of a sea foam or mint, a little coral, and just to break up all the pink tones and of course some g o l d! I am also thinking florals and hearts! This seems like a lot going on now that I am typing it but I just have a vision OK. hehe. 
(PS- Do I sound outrageous for over a color theme for an outfit?! I kinda feel like it but its pretty much the equivalent to a party so that's how I'm justifying my cray cray ideas.) I was also planning on  doing  a cake smash photo session since I never did one last year for her first birthday and I was thinking of doing the same color theme and finding a cute swimsuit to do that in! Two year olds can still have cake smash's right?!?

So our plans for her special day will be her going to school in the morning and I will take the class and teachers a little birthday treat and then momma can sneak away and go get ready for the day. Then I was thinking of taking her to get a pedicure and manicure since she loves getting her nails done and she is my little girly girl. Then maybe a quick stop at the zoo or a splash pad/pool. I haven't decided yet. Then maybe some toy shopping at toys r us and then off to dinner at her favorite sushi place with some close friends and the grandparents. I'm not sure if we will be able to pack that all into one day but I just want her to have the best second birthday!
Anyone else planning birthdays soon?? Let me know what your plans are!
