He is 1 already and it's his first birthday ever!
We chose a nursery rhyme theme to celebrate our little Yusuf's big day.
Rich green, blue and gold, a party fit for a prince!
Being his 1st birthday, we decided rather than a playful theme, to go for a more classic, vintage sort of look.
Pretty soon the little guy will be deciding his own theme, so Mommy was allowed to decide this time :)
See pics from the party below...
|The invite (personal details edited out for privacy reasons). Bee and Daisy|
|Little lollipop tree centrepieces with nursery rhyme cut-outs.|
|We alternated these Jack and Jill wooden pales with the lollipop trees. The patterned paper windmills had lines from nursery rhymes on them!|
|Themed napkin rings|
|A different take on a sweet table- Chocolate balls, pretzels, wafer sticks, macaroons, chocolate fingers and caramel popcorn.|
|Paper bags for guests to take sweets home in with nursery rhyme themed 'thank you' stickers.|
|For the adults- favour boxes filled with homemade nougat.|
|For the kiddies- Candy bars with themed wraps...|
|...and hot chocolate spoons with a sweet little 'thank you' tag on each...|
|...and nursery rhyme books with a sing-a-long CD.|
|Patterned paper buntings|
