I'm starting to think about DD's first birthday, the theme of which will be ladybug. I'll probably go OTT, but I reckon the first birthday is pretty special.
What do you think makes a memorable party? Or have you ever been to a party and thought, thats clever!
There will probably an age range of about 0-5 for the kids and heaps of adults. Some simple ideas I have so far:
Red themed food (ladybug of course) such as bruschetta, homemade sausage rolls with heaps of tomato sauce, lots of red fruit like watermelon, strawberries etc.
A cupcake decorating table, with red and chocolate icing and lollies to put on top (Jaffas, choc chips) so everyone can make their own.
Has your LO ever received a 'different' lolly bag or thank you gift? It seems the new trend is to give something instead of the traditional lolly bag of snakes and Freddos.
Any ideas would be most appreciated!
