One little birdie

I promised pics from the best first birthday party ever . . . and here they are. Thank you so much Kelly (above with the birthday girl) for sending them through, they are GORGEOUS and truly capture the spirit of the day. What a lucky little girl Zara is, if this is her first birthday, I can't wait til her 21st or wedding!

Just check out the effort they've gone to with the birdie theme and pink and brown throughout. Stunning colour palette and I'm a big fan of polka dots. Loving the lanterns in the tree and the Amy Atlas-esque buffet.

The birthday invites and pics for the frames were from Alannah Rose - gorgeous stationery. Kelly's sister Abby went for trains from the same place for her son Boston's first birthday which is coming up in a couple of weeks.

The table centrepiece was stunning - wild twigs with hand made felt little birdies. Would make for a fun Christmas tree too!

Miss Bree was in her element preparing a range of goodies - her teacups were a hit with the kids. So easy and so effective - tic toc biscuits for the saucers, marshmallows for the cup, half a musk lifesaver for the handle and freckles for the froth. Too cute!

Fairy bread! A friend of the family made a metal cookie cutter especially for the occasion. Talk about having it all under control!

Great cupcake decos, almost too good to destroy!

Bree knocked my socks off with these little birds' nests. The bottom layer were mini chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fairy floss (from Jones the Grocer) on top as the 'nest' the chocolate eggs topping it off. Thank goodness Easter is on its way!
Then on the second layer, we have some more rustic birds nest, simply made out of those fried noodles and melted chocolate. They're always a hit!

Great work on the sausage rolls, Abby! You can't beat a good home made country style version. YUM!

Yep, they thought of everything - even a mobile coffee van to come and keep the adults happy (at 9.30am on a Sunday morning, it was a welcome arrival!).

Proud Aunty Bree was kept busy by the BBQ, handing out these ah-mazing bacon and egg muffins. Such a good idea for a Sunday morning treat. They were delicately wrapped up in trendy napkins and secured with a wooden peg. Such a classy touch.

Yummo spinach and feta tarts in the bottom corner - a great savoury addition. And iced cookies in the back corner, so cute.

The most stylish party bags going around! It was a seriously chic affair and this was the perfect finishing touch. Well done to the Walker girls for all their hard work to pull it together - I know it was a real family effort. Watch out for these girls - they'll be a name to reckon with in event styling and management in years to come.
