For my daughter's 1st birthday i wanted something very girly. As she was only turning one she wasn't particularly into anything so i decided to go with a shabby chic theme. Lots of pink, blue, roses & lace. The back drop used behind the sweets table was the fabric used in Miss S's quilt in her bedroom.
The party invites were made my a talented friend: Cub and Bunny
I like to make signs for the front door for when people arrive. Now i have a much bigger portico at our house ill be able to get more creative.
I enjoy baking and making party food so i mostly make all the kids party food myself. The little brownies tend to be known as 'my thing'. I have them at every kids birthday party but change what i top them with.
Above the savoury food table i made a timeline of monthly photos along with a milestone poster (also made by Cub and Bunny)
Meatballs tend to be popular with the kids but the don't look very appealing. For this party i made little flags for them using lollipop sticks and washi tape.
I got my inspiration for the cake from pinterest. . . i think everyone has seen this style cake now. It's bit daunting as you don't know if the cake has turned out right until you cut it open on the day. I was very happy with how well the icings matched the inside of the cake.
