Today I want to show you a very special party. It’s my youngest, Beatrice’s, first birthday party! With a sunshine and rainbows theme, in pastel shades because she’s still our baby, we had lots of lovely colours all over the house, and the kids loved it (as did I)!
The food consisted of rainbow sandwiches (wrapped in coloured tissue paper), rainbow cone snacks, sunshine jellies, milkshake and Beatrice’s birthday cake was a sunshine with a rainbow of rainbow drop cakes! The party bags had ‘you are my sunshine’ labels, were filled with pastel coloured goodies and multi-coloured pom-poms which were handmade for the guests by our 7 year old, Alice.
We did absolutely everything ourselves, including making all of the food, the decorations and Beatrice’s tutu and I have put together a number of very simple DIY tutorials to show how to do it all yourself over the next few weeks :)Click here for the balloon wreath tutorial.
Here are some of Beatrice’s lovely friends, and a very tired birthday girl at the end of the day!
She had a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who shared her special day :)
