In the glow of Summer, we celebrated Miss K’s first birthday. The vintage themed party featured pretty lace, gorgeous dresses, charming bow ties, hats and braces, pearls, old-school glass milk bottles and paper straws.
With Miss K sitting on my hip in her sling for most of the party, I snapped some pictures when I could.

As a mother of three sons before Miss K, I indulged in a bit of lace and all things pretty. Our guests were incredibly kind and came a bit dressy – a bit of lace, beautiful accessories, collared shirts, hats and there were a few bow ties.
The day was an intimate and relaxed affair. The kids played and the adults sat, ate and chatted.
I spent a week making and decorating Miss K’s cake. I had to bake the three layered cake, then mask and ice the cake, and make the flowers and bunny using gum-paste and fondant. As some or our guests had food allergies, I also made some nut free, gluten free, dairy free and egg free cupcakes using the Deliciously Free Mud Cake mix. Both were devoured. I am glad I took plenty of photos beforehand.
The kids were so excited about drinking milk out of old-school glass milk bottles… (and the parents were keen to take pictures as they drank!). This may be showing my age, but I remember, as a child, the milk man delivering milk to our door every day in glass milk bottles. Seems like an age ago now.
Miss K has brought so much joy into our family. Whenever I see her, I just want to scoop her up into my arms and smother her with a thousand kisses and hugs. Miss K’s Vintage Inspired 1st Birthday Party was pretty special. (For one – – – pink was involved!)
I loved the day and even more so as I see photos of our dear friends and family. It does takes a village to raise a child, and we have been blessed with such a kind village.
