Here are the long-overdue photos from Will’s birthday party which we held in a local park. Luckily for us the weather was brilliant!

Be warned, there are more than 30 photos in the slideshow, so get comfortable!

A few details:

  • The bunting was made by a friend when Will was born. The colours don’t work in his bedroom but I knew straight away that I wanted to use the bunting as the basis for his first birthday party decorations.
  • My talented friend Emma made the cake and cupcakes. She also made our wedding cake and based Will’s cake on the same recipe because it’s our favourite – banana and white chocolate.
  • I bought the blue polka dot lanterns and made the blue and white poms. I hung a ‘chandelier’ over each of the four picnic tables in the picnic shelter we reserved for the party.
  • Will, the child who hates hat, loved the party hat I made him and wore it for the entire cake cutting and eating. And not surprisingly, he loved his cupcake!
