I’ve been planning Isla’s 1st Birthday party since we hit the 6 month mark, I literally couldn’t wait to throw the party – but I certainly wasn’t ready for her to actually turn 1!
We threw a Unicorn themed garden party at my parents’ house with all of our closest family & friends. I went a little heavy on the theme & got everything from Pretty Little Party Shop! I don’t think they had anything in the shop left after I’d ordered… We served Prosecco, Sushi and Jelly & Ice-cream with a few sandwiches thrown in to keep everyone happy!
Isla’s beautiful cousin gave her her old Little Tikes car which was a huge hit! Isla spent most of the party being pushed around in it!
Snogs for Baxter!! (And Daddy jumping in to try & stop it!)
Cuddles with Daddy & Uncle Ben!
Everyone got into the spirit of the party & wore their unicorn party horns with pride! 🙂
That little bubble machine was only a few ££’s from Tesco but it pumps out SO many bubbles and everyone always loves it! I wish I’d bought a few more of them!
When I bought those unicorn horns I thought no one would wear them but after a while (and a few drinks!) everyone was fighting over them!
When I lived in America as a little girl I was piñata obsessed so I just had to get Isla this unicorn one! Daddy had to help a bit but Isla’s big cousins were amazing at smashing it open!
These balloons were so much fun to make and would be a brilliant craft activity for the party too!
The beloved SmarTrike was pride of place at the party!
To say we were spoiled would be an understatement – Isla received so many beautiful presents I don’t actually know what to do with them all! I’ve been brining a new toy downstairs everyday to slowly introduce them but my living room can’t take it anymore! Serious first world problems!
We were so overwhelmed by the love for our beautiful girl, it really was the perfect afternoon celebrating her 1st year!
Isla even had 2 out of 3 Guide (God) Parents there to celebrate which when you all work in theatre really is a miracle! I think I should make her do this pose every year until she’s 18! Haha!
Isla really did have the best day, surrounded by everyone she loves! She charged around the party exploring & demanding cuddles from everyone!
Is it too soon to start planning the next party…? I suppose I should channel some of that energy into actually planning our Wedding soon!
