Ok, so I’m not good at this blogging bizzo. I admit it freely. I’d say it’s because I’ve finished maternity leave and I’m time-poor now, but really I’m just not that committed. There. It’s been said.
I really have been meaning to put up some photos of my son’s 1st birthday, because I scoured the internets for hours looking for pretty photos of kids’ birthday parties and I want mine in on the actions. Especially the cupcakes. And the monsters. Oh, the monsters!
The invites, thank you cards and paper chains were all Phoenix products (well, hey, benefit of being a trader right there!)
Actually, looking through the photos, I didn’t get any of the decorations or banners. Oh well, rest assured they were sufficiently monsterish. I also didn’t get any photos of the seriously awesome spread of food. See? I suck at this blog thing. The cakes were a normal vanilla cupcake but oh-so-lovely and the best frosting I’ve ever made! Seriously. Googly eyes and “fur” and monsters are complete. The kids loved them but the adults loved them more.
We had our macbook set up with Sparkbooth, which was a real hit with everyone. Sooo easy to use too!
For party favours I gave out bottles of bubbles and everyone got to Adopt-a-Monster. Rebecca Danger (who designed the pattern I based all my monsters on) has a new book coming out and I can’t wait. Full of monsterly cuteness *nods* Her Max sewing pattern is awesome in it’s simplicity and cuteness and it’s VERY customisable as you can see!
Anyway, it was a lovely day with family, friends and babies galore. Squid had fun, and on his birthday, that’s all that matters ❤
