Simone Masterson-Horn’s Second Birthday Bash!
“We decided to do Simone’s party at home this year,” the couple tell PEOPLE. “Planning and executing Simone’s dream party with our friend Jenny Keller was a lot of fun! We were still hanging tissue paper fans at 2 a.m. the night before.”

As guests arrived, they were greeted by rows of three-foot pink balloons adorning the entrance. Activities at the party included a giant birthday cake-shaped bounce castle, face painting, glitter tattoos and an over-the-top, prop-filled photo booth by Vizid Booth. In lieu of gifts, guests brought a donation of diapers for the family’s favorite charity, Baby Buggy.

Jenny Keller of Jenny Cookies flew in from Seattle and designed, baked and styled an extravagant dessert table including an ombré multi-tier buttercream cake, sugar cookies, cupcake-flavored popcorn, and her famous cake pops. (She also was the “confectionista” at Simone’s first birthday party, as seen on Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.)

Guests feasted on made-to-order tacos, quesadillas, taquitos and a salsa buffet featuring fresh fried tortilla chips. To accompany Jenny Keller’s desserts, the couple created a tricked-out sundae bar with nearly 20 different toppings.
“We’ve always loved entertaining. Now that we’re parents, we enjoy throwing amazing birthday parties for Simone,” Horn and Masterson tell PEOPLE. “We wanted to throw a party that was both stylish and tons of fun for the birthday girl and her friends.”

“She had the most amazing day,” say her dads. “We had to pry her out of the bouncy castle kicking and screaming well after all the party guests had gone home!”
