Pippa’s 1st Birthday Party


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. 

My favourite find however were these first birthday photo props found on Amazon! We had some great fun with them and got some good photos and they were even in pink and 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!
