Ava’s 1st Birthday

I know…. I know….. I’m the first to own up to being totally OTT!!! Ava turns 6 months old next weekend and I’ve already got half of her 1st Birthday Party planned!

The Theme: – Princess Party

The Invitations – will be personalized but look something like this, but I’m hoping to get my friend Gail to do something special, similar design but replace the butterflies with mini tiarra’s or something along those lines.

I loved this cos the little girl on it looks like a fair version of Ava.

The Cake – again personalized with Ava’s name:

If its pink, has a butterfly on it & a crown - we want it!

And lastly……….. and this is the most OTT…………. the outfit I’ve ordered from Stitcharoos (thanks for the tip Charné) and is being personalized with Ava’s name:

Party Princess!

I still need to finalize a venue, cos our house is far too small, but the date is set – December 10th, and of course I know who’ll be doing my cupcakes, Roz – you better tell your sussie she needs to start thinking about Princess cupcakes, then there are the party packs and party favours. But I have to say, having a daughter and doing these things is just so much fun!

Don’t tell the Nazi Mamma’s out there! I know its OTT, I get that it’s just for me and she won’t have a clue, but so FARKING what??? I waited almost 8 years for this!

    That is soooo exciting! Bianca’s first birthday was a bunny theme. She had a bunny cake and my mum made these fabric bunnies with a little rattly thing inside for the party guests and we put this inside the party packs. And we had it at the Langeni Touch and Feed farm at the time. Soooo much fun.

    Then she turned two and everything was Winnie-the-Pooh (her favourite at the time) and from 3 it was fairies.

    For the party packs you must get these organza bags you get – they are stunning. I used this for Bianca’s third birthday party. I think this will go perfectly with your theme.

      Paula, this is somewhat more expensive that Posh Lil’ Diva, brace yourself. I was too afraid to tell Walter exactly how much I paid for that little outfit, he might have a heart attack!

      And make sure you video it too, at least when you bring out the cake with her candle and she attempts to blow it out.

    Look at it this way – your spending is keeping people in business which is keeping the economy going 🙂
