A Winter One-derland – Evie’s First Birthday

I feel like this post needs to come with a disclaimer…. I know how many people feel about over-the-top, pretentious first birthdays….. but, I LOVE them! haha. I am all for fancy bashes, and considering I’m an Events Coordinator who hasn’t worked for 12 months, little Evie really didn’t stand a chance when it came to her first birthday.

I don’t like over spending though so keeping to a teeny tiny budget we had a really beautiful afternoon party with family and our closest friends.

The piñata

We hung strings of cotton wool (snow) from the cardboard cutout clouds.

Our little party girl (dress chosen by her adoring daddy)

The best little party favours for the kid guests

Snowman cups of popcorn

We borrowed everyone’s Christmas trees for a wintry forest… our QLD palm trees didn’t quite cut it

Hanging snowflakes

‘Dad of the Year’! Made a Frozen photo booth that all the kids loved

Kept the cake simple (I am no cake decorator and no matter what Pinterest tells me, I will not try)

All in all we had a lot of fun and I really loved pulling it all together.

There’s no need to spend thousands, but don’t let the haters stop you throwing a party! 🙂 If all else fails I’ll come along!!! 🙂
