And just like that, Harper is 1. Ok maybe not just like that, I mean we did have to go through her newborn phase, then the teething, the late nights and loads of spit up, and the numerous ear infections and fevers. We’ve had a few first steps, lots of kisses and cuddles, a few “poo-plosions”, gummy smiles and that amazing head in the neck cuddle.
But we’ve reached a new milestone when Harper turned 1 on 29 September. And what a celebration we had! I love celebrating birthdays, especially with loved ones and close friends who have been a constant part of our lives. I am so proud of what I accomplished on such a minimal budget. I did almost everything myself, from the food, to the decor and things turned out so much better than I would’ve thought. We had a little gathering in the woods with Harper’s Woodlands Party.
The guests were wow’ed by the cake. My friend has made both boys’ birthday cakes for the last few years and her creations are always amazing. But this one?!?! This one took the cake (lol). It was a 3 layer cake, the bottom layer was a dummy, the middle was chocolate sponge with a chocolate and peanut butter frosting, the top was a vanilla and strawberry sponge with vanilla frosting and strawberry jam (I think).
Ok, enough talking. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
These cookies from Nectar and Spice are absolutely gorgeous and taste delicious!!!
