It was over three weeks ago now since we had Pippa’s first birthday party and although it was a bit showery, we embraced the weather and had a classic British BBQ!The theme was pink and gold and I managed to find some great bits and pieces online so I thought I’d share!
The hero piece of the table set up was the Happy Birthday banner from Ginger Ray, my new favourite party supplier! I also bought some gold polka dot and pink striped paper cups from them and the pink paper pom poms
I always wanted to get some of these old fashioned milk bottles and I found these on Amazon. I then filled them with pink lemonade and added the classic stripey paper straws. I also bought an 8L Kilner jar with a tap and filled it with Pimms which I was super excited about but forgot to get a photo!
I considered getting a cake made for Pippa as I knew exactly what I wanted but then one day I spotted this beautiful cake in Sainsburys and it was exactly what I was after! And at £10 it was a whole lot cheaper than having it made! However the cake topper I did have made by a company called London Sparkle who I found on Etsy.
The gold ONE letters were a last minute addition and were actually used for Pippa’s first birthday photos I took of her. They were just cardboard letters from Hobbycraft which I spray painted gold.
We also got a light box from Very which I’ve wanted for ages and spelled out Pip is One.
Finally I then printed off the photos I’ve been taking of Pippa each month and hung them on string with mini gold pegs. One year in one picture!
