I think you all know I love a good kids birthday party. Who doesn’t love a spot of birthday cake (or cake full stop for that matter!). Today we are sharing a super cute first birthday party for Hazel full of the sweetest details.

When your mum is Holly from Revelry Events you can be sure she knows how to throw a good party. It looks like the most beautiful family day full of fun and laughter. I adore the cute balls of wool as decoration and the cat whiskers face painting is just genius.

Cat Party

Since I’m always looking for an excuse to throw a theme party, and our daughter’s 1st birthday was coming up, when ‘cat’ became the first real word Hazel spoke (quickly followed by ‘meow’…) I knew it couldn’t really be anything else.

And so for our little kitten’s 1st birthday we set about creating an intimate cat-themed picnic in the park to celebrate.

We set out a feature table covered in pink cloth to host our themed nibbles – a cat cake, cat-face sandwiches complete with dill whiskers, cookies, fruit and popcorn. Scattered amongst the food display were pink yarn balls and blue-sprayed cat figures.

On each picnic blanket we laid out artisan deli sandwiches and mason jars of pasta salads.

A tipi, handmade by my dad, was set up for the babies for shade and play, and I made a sign and laid out some face painting pencils to encourage guests to paint on their whiskers and join in the fun!
