As I blogged about a couple of months ago, I had started to plan little man’s 1st birthday party. Well, yesterday was the day, and after all of the planning, I think it went very well! The theme was In The Night Garden.

I had decided to get crafty and made a few bits:


A name banner
The stickers for the party bags
Some colour in sheets for the party bags
A sign to go on the door 
I also went a bit mad with banners and balloons! Though I had to get him a large helium number balloon:
My Mum made his cake, which I absolutely loved! 
Iggle Piggle even showed up! 
He got lots of lovely presents:
We also had pass the parcel. And as usual for functions, I made way too much food so we were eating it last night, and today! 
It was a bit of a sombre end to the day, as unfortunately hubby’s Mum was in hospital so she couldn’t make the party, but we visited her in the evening with some food and some cake. Little man was so tired from being on the go since 8am, he fell asleep in the car on the way to the hospital, and stayed asleep when we got him out!
On the way to & from the ward she was on though, were signs for the delivery suite, which brought back good memories from little man’s arrival, but also upset me a little as it just brought it back to me that I should be there again in 3 months time. 
All in all though I think it was a successful day, and we’re just having a family day tomorrow, with more cake!
