Duncan's workmate's daughter turned one at the end of September, and had her first birthday celebrations at the start of October. It was one of those kids' birthday parties which blew my mind. The theme was 'Nursery Rhymes' and each plate of food was tied in with the theme - everything from Hickory Dickory Dock biscuits to Miss Muffet cupcakes. The cake was a work of art. All the guests were asked to dress up as a nursery rhyme character.
It was beautiful and elaborate, but I won't be making nearly as much effort for our child's first birthday. He/she can have the grandparents and uncles over for a round chocolate cake with Smarties on it (which is far as my cake decorating ability extends). I don't see much point when they won't remember it.
But Duncan and I really enjoyed ourselves and we hope Cara did, too.
|What a shame we had to eat it.|
his pjs, dressing gown and beanie and come as Wee Willie Winkie, he was quick to agree.
I was the Queen of Hearts (and yes I did bring a plate of tarts).
