Monday was my daughter first birthday. A whole year old! It has just flown by. The Sunday before we decided to have a party for her with friends and family at our house. We went for a circus theme and (thanks largely in part to pinterest) had loads of ideas for decorations and food.
To help keep costs down I decided to make most of the decorations and food myself.
Below are some pictures from the day that I would love to share with you all…
For some crazy reason it is impossible to find anywhere in the UK that sells giant confetti therefore I made this myself and popped it inside some clear balloons filled with helium. There was one tied to each gift bag as well as decorating the house.
The big top tent. This really made the room and was made from long red and white table covers. They are just the cheap kind you get get from poundland. I got mine from Amazon and they were cut in half lengthways. In the centre is tissue paper blossom ball in lots of bright colours. It hides the tape holding the big top tent up perfectly.
Due to time constraints I brought the spirals hanging from the ceiling from a great place called Party Pieces the bunting in the background however we made from tissue paper and string.
We all had a great day and I certainly learnt a few more crafting tricks making the many decorations and food. There was so much food; popcorn shaped biscuits, rainbow fruit, cupcakes, cookies, swirl lollies, mini pizzas, popcorn and of course the cake…
