Leo’s 1st Birthday

Can you believe it?  Leo is 1!  The year has gone way too fast and as usual, I was left scrambling together a birthday party!

If you’ve been a follower for a while, you will know I love a good party (click here for Hugh’s party and here for Charlie’s party).  We always celebrate our boys 1st birthday with a big party and after the year we’ve had with Leo and his sleep (or lack of sleep – we are off to sleep school in a month.  1 month….counting down), this party was for my husband and I.  We got through this year….and Leo has made sure he is the last baby.

Leo’s party was inspired by his nursery.  Think timber, feathers, animals and copper.

The lovely Brooke from Piccolo Studio created his invitations and they were just perfect and set the scene for the rest.image1

Believe it or not, this party wasn’t as detailed as I normally go…..the whole thing of chasing after 3 boys, running a business, no sleep etc., left me with no time and I kept it as simple as I could, while still looking a bit glam!

Piccolo Studio also created the Lion stickers for the bottles.

Any products I ordered, I wanted to make sure they were able to tie in with his nursery once the party was over.  Zilvi created this gorgeous sign for the back drop.

I couldn’t find what I was after for the fruit cups, so ended up buying some plain cupcake patty’s and spent the afternoon glittering the base (along with feathers and cutlery – see to the right of the hippo below?)

Yet again, the fab Piccolo Studio created the cake topper.  I also glittered up a 1 candle to match and then added a couple of spray painted animals.  Simple!

The cake was a fall back plan……so I grabbed a Woolworths sponge and went with a naked cake look!  Tasted not too bad really!

I grabbed as much as I could out of Leo’s nursery for the sweet table.  His Letter Light and Gold Frankincense and Myrrh feathered crown (which we gave him for his birthday) completed the look.

You can’t have a party without baby’s breath….right?

The backdrop tassels are from DD Brand and I’ve already got them hanging vertically in a corner of the nursery.  There was also big love for the balloon from Poppies for Grace.

I added a gift tag (from Piccolo Studio) and glittered feather to a simple paper bag for the kids goodie bags.

The birthday boy wore his outfit from Hubble and Duke…..he looked so cute!  I had the crown on him for approx. 0.05 seconds before he grabbed at it (hence the reason it’s not sitting on his head properly).Leo Birthday 0433

And finally……cake!Leo Birthday 0653

This is absolutely gorgeous! So clever. I was wondering where you sourced the animals from and also where you got the wooden blocks from? (If not from the backyard!) Thank you so much

Hi Anna,
Thank you! The animals were from K-Mart (and just spray painted) and yes...the timber is from our farm!
