The monkey’s First Birthday Party…

23 May

Not quite my usual post today, but it was our monkey’s first birthday party this weekend and so I couldn’t resist sharing some pics from our special day. Layla does only turn one this Friday, but we shared the party with her best friend, Anna who turned 1 last Friday, and whose parents just happen to be some of our very best friends as well.

As some of you may know, it  was a conscious decision to really celebrate her first birthday and we had decided on a theme of ‘Bubbles and Balloons‘.

Here are some pics of our special day…

The two birthday girls… (Layla is in pink)

The bubbles where a hit…

And so where the balloons  (me and my bub)

These ‘streamers’ where the easiest things to make and were perfect for the day.

And lastly…… the Birthday Cake(s) made by yours truly…

Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 🙂

(And I can’t not include the work of art from Kirst, the mommy to Anna who we shared the special day with – how cool is this cake of Anna and her puppy!)

And lastly – the two girls at the end of the day discussing how their first ever party went!

Thanks to you all for your messages on Twitter – it was amazing sharing Friday night baking the cake with so many people saying hi and giving encouragement, you mamma’s all rock 🙂
