This Bears & Blocks First Birthday Party was originally hosted by Izreen from Fluff & Stuff.
Great combo with the Bears and the Blocks! I have to say that I really love the cake. Such a fun idea with the blocks going in a circle. Lots of great touches all throughout this party! Thanks for listing your party Izreen.
Enjoy this First Birthday party…..
just a few things to remember for the next party i organise:
- design invites early, especially if it’s a complicated block that takes forever to construct & put together…so say, 2 months is a good headstart, to avoid going to bed at 4am for a few weeks before the invites are due!
- have a trial run for the birthday cake, especially if it’s the first time playing with a type of decor…in this case fondant. also avoid baking & decorating at 4pm the night before the party. much better to start at least a couple of days ahead…
- coax family & friends to come early & help with decor!
- a one year old is just happy to have familiar toys around her which kinda defeats the whole party anyways but at least when she grows up & looks at the pics, she’ll think she had a fab first birthday!
last but not least, after weeks of cutting & sticking and calling & planning, make sure friends stick around after the party to help you unwind over that much-needed drink
