How to Throw a First Birthday Party!


Archie turned 1 on Christmas Day (as I'm sure you're all aware with all the recent birthday picture spam) and we threw him a little party on Boxing Day to celebrate. I was blown away with how many people turned up and I'm so grateful that they all took the time to celebrate my poor Christmas baby's birthday with him.

It was an amazing day for little A and for us and I'm pretty sure that everyone had a fantastic time. It was lovely seeing Archie with loads of his cousins and family and overindulging in lots of party food (not that we haven't been doing that this Christmas anyway). Here's a picture dump of our fantastic day.

Thanks so much to everyone who made a huge effort to forget Christmas and celebrate A's first birthday with us. It means a huge amount to us and to him (I figure that's what 'bra-bra-doo-dee-loo-dee-do' means anyway)..
