First Birthday Party

We know time goes too quickly, but the first year with little Sophie has flown by like no other. There have been moments where I have got tearful about how fast those baby days disappeared, but my funny happy girl gets more gorgeous everyday and I was excited to be planning her first birthday party.(I've linked lots of the products at the bottom of this post, so scroll right down for details).

First birthdays are really for the parents and grandparents so we opted for a super simple family get together at our home with cake and bubbles - I imagine this is probably the only year I'm going to get off so easily!

A few little decorations and an oversized foil balloon prettied up our open plan space and I filled the table with Sophie's Emma Bridgewater Melamine Tea Set and Great Little Trading Company cakes and stand.

Then added my triple tiered red velvet cake covered in cream cheese icing (which I was still finishing when our first guest arrived - oops!) to the cake stand and served with some pink champagne. Perfect.

Wearing the sweetest rose print dress from JoJo Maman Bebe I had thought much more about what Sophie would wear on her special day than my own outfit - throwing on a favourite jumper from Mint Velvet.

Sophie happily opened her presents with a little help from Cousin Evie and thankfully declined the offers of cake from naughty grandmas! A lot less effort than a full blown baby party with lots of little friends crawling and toddling about - a recommendation for busy mums who have just finished mat-leave, keep it simple and enjoy...
