Cameron's 1st Birthday Party!

For someone who studied Events Management at Uni, the first birthday party of my son was always going to be a big deal for me. I started planning it months ago and wanted everything just perfect. I decided early on I wanted to make the food for it, but hadn't realised how stressed it would make me! On Thursday I went on a massive baking supply shop....

and on Friday my mum helped look after Cameron whilst I baked, and baked hard! I made cupcakes, mini cupcakes, cookies, pizza, cheese stars, jellies and the birthday cake!! The only things I didn't make were mini pasties! I was up until 1am finishing everything off, but I was very proud of myself, especially considering that I hadn't baked in years and it was my first attempt at making cupcake frosting!

The next morning I was exhausted...but I got up early and went to meet my friend Mel and her daughter Neve who I hadn't met in person before! Neve is only 11 weeks old and so adorable, was so nice to meet Mel finally as well! After a few final touches and some last minute sandwich making, everything was ready just on time, and guests started arriving. The party went really well and Cameron, although quite tired, had a really good time and loved seeing his friends and family. He got so spoilt again, with lots of lovely toys and some DVDs!

There was a game of pass the parcel, lots of children's music and some adorable dancing by my friend Juliette's baby Callum who is 6 months!

Cameron was a bit confused by the candle blowing so his second cousin Spencer helped him!

The food was a success luckily, and I had quite a few compliments about my cupcakes and the birthday cake so I am very pleased. After the party was over, my family, me, Cameron and Mel went to the beach for a bit before Mel got her train back. It was a bit windy, but a lovely day still and Mel got to see the sea before she went home which was nice.

The most important thing was that Cameron had a lovely day, so I am happy that he did. I think next year to save on the stress, I will be going out for his party instead!
