picnic party!

Now that winter is arriving {cold blustery days, darkness, freezing rain, yuck!} I thought I would share a little summer with you. I was a pretty terrible blogger in the summer, so I didn't properly feature my daughter's first birthday party! Her birthday is in July which is actually quite lovely because we were able to hold it outside and make the most of the warm weather and swimming pool.

The theme was a Picnic Party, and I collected all sorts of red and white fabric to make table cloths, a flag bunting, and picnic blankets strewn across the lawn. Actually I found the decor for this party quite easy - red and white is a popular combo! And I threw in some turquoise accents just for fun.There was swimming, there was a jumping castle and trampoline, cupcakes, stripey straws, a popcorn machine and a fab cake made by Auntie M. Pictures tell the story much better, so here is a bit of summer for ya!
