|I made these signs using paper and lettering from Spotlight.|
|My handmade invites! I first purchased this paper from|
Catchy Crafts in Hornsby (NSW). Coincidentally, I then found
the same paper (used for signs) at Spotlight in Melbourne!
|The party details were on the back and the guest's|
names were written on the attached teabags.
I then hand cut all of the number ones and used
mounting tape so that they were slightly raised.
|Allegra's gorgeous party outfit purchased from |
the lovely Tami @ Snuggles of Love :)
|The quality really is so beautiful...|
|And fit for a party princess!|
|My flower arrangements :)|
|Purchased from the Prahran Market.|
|Me and my big one year old!|
|The dessert table!|
|The set up in Nanny G's back garden :)|
|The cake! I was originally planning on making a teapot|
shaped cake, however with so much else to
prepare I decided to play it safe by dressing up
my homemade, fondant covered choc mud cake!
I used this recipe- the bottom tier was made
from two 23cm cakes and the top tier
from one 15cm cake.
|Teapot from T2, fresh flowers from|
Prahran Market and ribbon from Spotlight.
|A combination of my white chocolate mud cupcakes and |
classic cupcake recipe (used in my lemon curd cupcakes),
both with butter cream icing! Cake stand
and patty cases from Pink Frosting.
|Mini Teacups! These were an absolute hit with the kiddies|
and only took about 10 minutes to make a whole batch!
|Get the recipe and instructions here!|
|Chocolate coated strawberries with handmade|
flags using offcuts of paper from the invitations,
toothpicks and my trusty hot glue gun :)
|Preparing the infamous rocky road :)|
|A closer look at the cupcakes :)|
|Another view of the dessert table.|
Buntings from Le Petit Party.
|Plastic cutlery from Spotlight, napkins,|
plates & cups from Pink Frosting

The Biggest Lolly Shop in the World.

|Again, also from Pink Frosting.|
|Opening presents with Mummy...|
So there you have it, Allegra's 1st Birthday Party done and dusted! I still can't believe it's been and gone :( Is it too early to start thinking about her 2nd Birthday Party?! hee hee. Apologies if some of the photos are small or unclear (I really need to update my blogger template and layout) but I think I have covered most of the details in the little captions. If I have missed anything or if you have any questions please ask away :) x
