It was Nell's first birthday last week (boo hoo!) so we celebrated with a little family party at the weekend.
The theme was flower fairies and Nell looked lovely in her pretty dress and tiny wings. She didn't keep them on for long but I managed to get a couple of photos!
I had fun finding fairy themed gifts for the party bags which I packaged up in pretty paper bags decorated with mini doilies, ribbon and a flower fairy tag with each child's initial. Even the boys got one of these very girly bags but I did put boy stuff inside so hopefully they can forgive me.
My sister made some chocolate cupcakes and I made toadstools from fresh strawberries and mini marshmallows to go on top.
My sister also made the fantastic toadstool house cake. It was a crime to cut it. We did though.
Pretty fresh flowers on the food table.
Three days later I haven't taken down the honeycomb balls or bunting yet. They look lovely with the green kitchen walls and its nice to feel festive while eating breakfast!
For the food I went tea party style with 6 kinds of sandwiches and finger food followed by scones, macaroons, cakes and biscuits and yummy fresh berry cones.
I think the birthday girl enjoyed herself - Its hard work turning one!
