We had a pink and gold glitter theme for my daughter's first birthday party. I had some balloons printed on and sent them out as invites and they were a hit!!! This is where the balloon backdrop stemmed from.
My main focus was for the older kids to have fun as Tillie is my first baby I wasn't sure if we had enough toys etc to keep the older kids occupied. In the back yard we set up a teepee with pillows and books, loads and loads of bubbles (never fail) a giant blackboard, cloud dough and their own candy cart. The candy cart had popcorn, lollies, biscuits and I made some fairy bread, choc crackles, marshmallow pops, sherbet and LCM bars.
I wanted to also make her first birthday cake - hmmmm not sure if I call myself a baker at all.
I also took my hand at trying meringue puffs (unicorn farts i like to call them), oreo balls and musk sticks.
