On the 12th of May Luisa will be 1 and quite honestly the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. Where on earth has the last year gone!? Naturally I’m distracting myself by organising the most fabulous first birthday party I can possibly dream up. And how fabulous could said party really be without a wonderful party dress?

I’ve had a browse online and come up with a few options that Miss L might like to wear on her special day.


first birthday party outfits


As I said in my recent update Lu is currently wearing size 9-12 month clothing and I don’t expect that to change before her birthday. That being said I am going to hold off on purchasing her party outfit just in case she has a sudden growth spurt. Another thing I’ll have to think about is tights and a cardigan as I doubt we’ll really have the weather required to go without.

In a perfect world I’ll be able to find the adult version or a very similar skirt so we can match. Don’t worry I do know that I’m a loon, I just don’t care.

We actually just booked the venue for her party today so planning has moved up a gear. I’m going with an eclectic tea party look. I think this is a great ‘theme’ as it means I’ve been able to pick up loads of decor bits in the sales. Having a mixed up look certainly helps to keep costs down as you aren’t limited by what’s currently available in stores.

As you can probably tell I’m really invested in pulling off a wonderful first birthday party so I’d appreciate any tips you have. Feel free to leave me a comment or get in touch on Facebook // Twitter
