It all started with a very hungry baby, Rowan, who just about ate everything he could see. We aptly nicked named him 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and from an early age we knew his first birthday would be a hungry caterpillar party. Our very own little hungry caterpillar boy, wearing his very own Rowan Romper in Spotty Spots
I hung spotted fabric over a brick wall as a backdrop for the story boards we made of pictures from Rowan's first year, it was so hard to choose which ones to use. Story boards made a great talking point, we used two large canvases and wasabi tape. Don't they look impressive!
The homemade party hat's were very easy to make, we started with a plan yellow cone hat and made the caterpillars and the birthday boy butterfly using the pictures from the book as a guide.
An amazing beautiful sunny sky and the the lush green lawn was the perfect picnic spot for little ones to enjoy their day. Several weeks ago I started sewing the bunting all one hundred and seventy five triangles............but don't they look smashing
I put out a selection of vintage chairs with helium balloons.....cute
Hmmm these cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches were a hit
Fruit stars, chocolate strawberries, icy little jellies were delicious treats on such a warm day........
Now for the drum roll....
Happy little caterpillar cupcakes...not only do they look delicious they were very yummy
The Star of the Show
When Alison delivered the cake on Friday afternoon I was on the phone calling my friends demanding they drop by to see the spectacle of a cake. We all stood around having a few glasses of bubbles admiring it beauty
Hmmm hurry up, we live in anticipation to see it inside and taste it
The cookie wands each one so perfect in detail........A fabulous idea for a party favour
A tired little caterpillar opens his presents.......
And sadly all his little friends have gone home
his first birthday party is over
Apparently it just got started
