A farmyard party was an easy choice for Blossom’s 2nd birthday as she simply adores all things farm. We took our inspiration from her beloved ride-on “Moo” and went for a subtle cow print theme mixed in with some hessian fabric and red gingham. Apart from buying the balloons, ribbon and gypsophila we were then just able to utilise all the home decor bits we already had to hand. We got our invites from here and the cake was Blossom’s ultimate favourite, “Anna’s choc cake” as found in the cafe at our church but with the sweet addition of some chocolate fences and farmyard animals. As you can see Daddy was rather generous with his portions… she was delighted!

We had such a special day on Saturday celebrating our little Sunshine’s first birthday. We marked the occasion by hosting an afternoon tea for family and a few close friends and it was such a lovely day.

It was a really easy theme to pull off as the colour theme was subtle – just yellow, white and taupe – and enabled me to make use of lots of neutral tableware and display items I already had around the house.

I then only needed to get a little bit crafty to turn jam jars into vases and stamp out a few food labels. Some classic balloons and pretty flowers were then the perfect finishing touches and a few generous friends assisted with baking.

Blossom seemed to really enjoy spending her day with family and friends and as parents we were delighted to be able to celebrate it with pretty much zero stress – long may this continue!
