A ‘Wild One’ 1st Birthday Party
‘Wild’ probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of a 1st birthday party. But when it came to choosing a word to work with for Sidney’s 1st birthday, ‘wild’ was the most appropriate. Wild is her hair. Wild is her dance moves. Wild is her daring nature.
Sidney celebrated her 1st birthday at her home alongside family and friends with lots of wild bright colours, animal prints, earthy brass tones, foraged greenery from the garden and an abstract inspired canvas cake.
The cake table was the star attraction with its awe-invoking canvas cake and regularly replenished with homemade cupcakes, rocky road, smiley face cookies, jelly slice, teacups and honey joys, as well as a refreshing fruit and veggie stick platter with dips.
While the grown up food table featured a heavenly grazing platter, build your own brioche slider buffet (meatballs with chilli sauce or crab with coleslaw), tasty pasta salad, fig + prosciutto salad, spiced chickpea + cous cous salad and faro with lemon, feta + pine nuts.
And making the most of the autumn sunshine, guests ate under trees on our vintage picnic blankets and upturned wooden crates with a game of croquet, bocce and quoits in between that the little and big kids enjoyed alike.
While Sidney might never remember her first birthday party, it’s a day that her family will never forget.
“It was really important to us that we celebrated Sidney’s 1st birthday with those that have been there for her and us over the past 12 months. And to see her face light up at the sight of the cupcakes was something else!”, said her dad, Ben.
