My littlest baby Nephew James is one whole year old!!! How did that happen? So of course party planner extraordinaire Mummy, my Sister Jen, threw him THE best party ever!
You may remember we threw him a little party while back for his Naming Day, you can check out the photos here... well this party being the all important first ever birthday, had to top that....
Naturally there was a theme and a colour palette! Colours picked were Orange, Green and Blue and the party theme, if you haven't already guessed, was Dinosaurs.
There was plenty to do to get the party ready. Jen hired the local Community Centre, which is a plain looking large room. So we got to work late the night before decorating the space, we were back again early the next morning before the party to ensure everything was perfect. Jen is a hard task master but a total perfectionist, and it's all worth it, as her parties are just fab! She gets a vision and will not stop until it is a reality.
The big task was the streamer wall! Lengths of streamers sellotaped with double sided tape to the top of the wall and then balloons pinned on top. It looked so effective.
There were cute little touches all round the party with these large 'ROAR' motifs in strategic places.
I just loved Jen's attention to detail with the Herbivores and Carnivores tables! Plus a Drinkasaurus and Sweetivores table too!
The food was even dino shaped! Everything tastes better dino shaped!
And Jen's very own creation, Marshmallow volcanos! woah!
If you wish to hire Jen for your party planning, I'm sure she is available! She also designs beautiful blogs, check her out here...
