Yesterday, we had a (very casual) afternoon tea party to celebrate Zoe's first birthday. My mum made a fantastic lady bug cake, and my dear friend Nell made cupcakes, which we decorated with some icing lady bugs (made by Bel from Enticing Icing)
It was a lovely afternoon tea, being surrounded by close friends and family, celebrating Zoe's first year. We had a surprise visitor too - my QLD sister-in-law Stepfie "gate crashed" the party. My littlest brother was going away for the weekend on a man-cation (as Stepfie called it), so he booked her a flight to Melbourne, and my mum (just) managed to keep it a secret all week. It was the most lovely surprise, we have not seen her since our holiday back in July.
I thoroughly enjoyed a glass of pink champagne, but was too busy taking to everyone to manage a second glass (how annoying, hehe)
Abbey helped open most of the birthday girls presents, and also had to blow out the candle on the cake. Big sisters can be very helpful.
I am sure the best bit for Zoe was having her first ever whole piece of cake (not just a mouthful, but her own piece) She really enjoyed it, and managed to get red icing in both her ears too.
Hope you have had a lovely weekend too. Visit Claire for more week-a-boo's, and visit Kasia for more weekend fun.
