As promised, get ready for a photo overload of Hugh’s party on the weekend!
I decided to do a take on the Woodland theme for his party (using the Owls from Hugh’s Nursery as inspiration), but not in the typical green, brown & orange that I’m seeing alot of at the moment. I went for red, navy & aqua colours and incorporated Owls, Gnomes, Toadstools & Timber.
It’s pretty challenging at the moment to find alot of boy items in the theme (heaps of girls that have fairy’s), so I channelled my inner Amy Atlas (Queen of deserts!), Bakerella (Queen of Cake Pops) and Kim from TomKat Studio (Queen of decorations) and got to work creating H’s party! Going back over the photos, I realised I made everything! Pretty proud of that! From the table runners to the bunting to the invites to the food!
I made a welcome and goodbye sign (very basic!)

Outside I put up some bunting (the men did the man thing & hung around outside watching the footy – it was only 12 degrees!)And then there was the sweet table! I made chocolate crackles, fairy bread, popcorn cones, marshmallow toadstools, chocolate nests, lollies & chocolates!Yummy chocolate cracklesI couldn’t have ugly sultana boxes on the table, so covered boxes in pretty paper for the babies. I also covered furry friends in pretty paper, but didn’t take a photo!I used a bit of wood for the cake standMade the little owl for the cakeApparently the toadstools were delicious….they went to quick for me to try one!

Lollies! Do you know how hard it is to find blue lollies?


Chocolate nests with jellybeans for eggs

This is Winston the Gnome after his makeover. He took care of the savory table (which I didn’t get time to take a photo of once it was set up….it was devoured pretty quickly), but we had the normal party food…..sausage rolls, meatballs, spring rolls, cob loaf dip. What everyone did love though was the dip & carrots! All I did was put some hommus or tziki into little shot glasses with a couple sticks of carrot & celery and then everyone had their own individual serves!

Made name tags for our champagne glasses

I even jazzed up some tea bags and made Hugh bags! Although everyone was to busy drinking the champers to worry about tea!


As some extra decoration…..

The birthday boy wearing the very cute t-shirt, Hanging with my Gnomies from Rock Your Baby. He played for a bit then took himself off to his room to read (the boy is obsessed with books!)

Blowing out the candles! He didn’t like it when everyone cheered!


Getting his hands on Daddy’s cake….

And trying to get his balloons!

Oh I should also add, that we had a slide show on the tv of all his photos going as well just in the background.
AND I actually cut back on a few things that I really wanted to do, but just ran out of time!
Well that’s it! Hope you liked! My baby is growing up……luckily I still have another week before his birthday to officially call him my baby!
Now that all that is done, I can get back to concentrating on nurseries!
