Wordless Wednesday - Chloe's 1st Birthday - The Flying Drunken Monkey

I’m sharing some photos from Chloe’s 1st Birthday party – a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. Yup, Chloe’s one. I can’t believe it either!

The cake – they were chocolate packet mix cakes (to keep things easy). The head was made from a simple round cake and the body was made with a bundt tin. We sliced it in half to create two cakes and then cut them up to make the different sections. The icing is just coloured buttercream with licorice and M&M’s for decoration.

No-sew bunting made by me – using craft glue. My Mum is now going to sew around the edges so that we can keep it.

My sister crocheted this headband for Chloe to cover the bruise from her big fall down the stairs last week. It didn’t stay on – Chloe wouldn’t let it!

Lily was actually really good – she was just tired from a few big days before and threw a tantrum just before the party started

Chloe grabbed her sister and started licking her all over her face. No idea where that came from.

So happy the sun came out so the kids could enjoy the playground and ball pit. Just a pity it was really windy!

While taking photos before cutting the cake Chloe decided it would be a good time to chew on my nose and give me a “kiss”

My favourite photo from cake time – In the middle of everyone singing Happy Birthday, Chloe decided to give me a great big smooch on the cheek and lick on the lips.

  4. So so lovely. I have a soft spot for VHC. It was the theme for my baby shower, and we’ve got a bunting and VHC fabric in our playroom. And maybe three different versions of the book!
    It looks like a magical first birthday. There is so much love in these images. What a lucky birthday babe! X

  5. What a fun day, and I’m a big fan of this book, and I love that shirt. Wow to the cake. I can see everyone trying to help her open presents, as they do. A lovely family photo, ours are never perfect either but at least they are natural!
