You may have seen a few weeks ago that my son, Oliver, had his first birthday! I can’t believe he’s now over a year old, where does the time go?! The day after his birthday we held a little birthday party for him and we invited some close friends and family. We had such a lovely day so I wanted to share some photos with you all.
All of these photos were taken by Vicky, my wonderful (very soon to be) sister-in-law. Vicky is so talented so you should definitely check her out here.
I loved the Happy Birthday banner, you can purchase it yourself here. I knew from the word go that I wanted to get a Gruffalo cake for Olivers party. This is mainly because I’ve just discovered The Gruffalo myself (I know right it’s crazy!), and I love him so much! Oliver did get a little hyper after trying his cake as it’s nearly pure chocolate.. That was a mistake on my behalf! We bought the cake from Tesco.
Oliver was rather spoilt on the day and he loved all of the attention he got. He didn’t have a nap for the whole party and when it reached his bedtime he didn’t want to go down! I guess the nearly pure chocolate cake didn’t help either! In the end he stayed up for another 2 hours.. But he did have a lie in the next morning which we were grateful for!
I promise you, although in this photo Oliver looks grumpy, he was happy most of the time! It’s quite hard to get a baby to smile to a camera on a timer!
I’ll take this moment to say thank you so much to all my friends and family who came to Oliver’s birthday party. It means the world to us. He loves all of the presents he received and loved spending the day with you! We couldn’t ask for better friends and family. I also want to say a huge thank you again to everyone who wished Oliver a happy birthday. We were overwhelmed with the amount of well wishes he received.
