    So my daughter will be 1 on the first of November and I have decided not to have a big party due to it being nearly Christmas and forking out for birthday & Christmas presents etc but I definitely want to celebrate it in some way. I was thinking of having a little tea party at home with her 2 cousins (maybe some of my friend's kids - undecided so far) and was wondering if anyone had some ingenious ideas that could help spice it up a bit. I have come across making hedgehogs by covering a baking potato with foil and poking cheese & pineapple cocktail sticks in it and making sandwiches with shape cutters which I like the sound of, and I figured I'd just put all the baby's toys in the middle of the room for entertainment but any other suggestions would be fab :)

    I drew a tree on a large piece of paper and got all the babies to add their handprints on and framed it for her bedroom. Also had a little singing session at the end as she like music and like you said had lots if toys out. Was really successful as everyone had a good time but particularly as my daughter really enjoyed herself. Have fun.

    Ooh, I'm loving the tree idea lots! Especially as I want to decorate her room with an owl theme when we next decorate and trees & owls go hand in hand!

    Helium balloons maybe? My LO seems to love them, as do every other LO i meet!! Maybe add some edible glitter to anything ur baking? Maybe have a bit of a sensory sea; different fabrics and sounds? (I'm currently making sensory bottles as a first present for LO). X

    We are having Jacks party today. I invited a few moms from play group and family. We are having cake and decorated with things from the dollar store. The entire party is under $30 and just enough to have pictures for his baby book.

    Beautiful pack - your daughter is such a cutey and looks like she had a whale of a time!! I am definitely going to get a load of balloons because dd loves them, if the dog will leave them alone that is :)

    I have got a few ideas floating around now, I am only looking to have some sort of celebration so that I can take lots of pictures & video it for when she's older. It's definitely more for me :winkwink:
