1st Birthday parties

10 Feb

How many times have you heard mom’s ask the question around the little one’s first birthday parties – the big question? Do we go big or not? So many different views, some go completely overboard, some don’t do anything and some I guess take the middle road. For me it was more about celebrating our monkey’s first year with our friends who had been through many of the ups and downs with us. Of course she won’t remember it, but we made sure we took some good photos, and most importantly for me, it was a day spent with loved ones and day spent reflecting on what a blessing she had been in our lives at that point. (4 months to go till her 2nd birthday now can you believe it!)

Anyway, I saw this awesome idea on On To Baby and thought I’d share it. Something as simple as using baby’s clothes from the year as bunting, together with photos from the year – perfect decor for some awesome reminders of how far you’ve come and how special the first year has been.

Anyone else got some cute, simple ideas for celebrating 1st Birthday’s?

    That is such a fab idea! Some tho, might mistake it for your washing line :/ . I truly believe in parties – because it’s all part of creating memories and having the photos to share those memories when they grow older!

      ha ha, it would still be a cute washing line – and when I look back at the prem clothes our monkey fitted into, I still get all teary eyed and in awe of her first year… (and can’t believe that she actually fitted into those tiny tiny clothes!).
