Days, weeks and months have somehow gone past too quickly and Ella turned one on the 23rd of August,2018. If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know this and have seen a few bits of the birthday preparations and celebration. We threw two parties for Ella, one with friends and the other for our family. Even before Ella was born I had a theme in mind and wanted to host an afternoon tea style party for her 1st birthday but when we got closer to the month of August and saw that the sun was at its brightest we thought it would be better to host a Summer BBQ style party instead. So instead of a theme, I went for a colour code of ‘White Party’ to complement the weather and the heat.
We had white decor and dress code and thanks to all our guests we had a house full of friends and family dressed in white which was awesome to see. Ella’s cake was made by @Cakeology , my birthday cake was made by my sister and one of my dear friend Lizzie also made a delicious cake for Ella. We were so lucky with the weather and both parties went really well with a lot of laughs, music and drinks. Ella received lots of beautiful presents and both days were full of so much love from our friends and family who came together to celebrate our special day.
