    We had a Mickey Mouse theme. I don’t think I blogged about it as I haven’t taken up blogging back then. We only invited godparents and grandparents.

      Hope you had a great time :)

    Well done Al that looked like an awesome first birthday! We went to town on ours too – the bunting, way too many presents (hadn’t read your advice then!) and we used the Square Snaps too – they are still up. We invited family and a few friends dropped in with their little ones. We played pass the parcel with me on the ipod – and I managed to give everyone a turn. Agree with your advice – and lets face it this party is also about the grownups having a good time! I’d also reccomend http://lauraslittlefilmcompany.co.uk/little-films/ as a lovely way to capture Ted for posterity (unless youre a wizz at making videos yourself that is). Happy birthday Ted – I can tell you that the next six months are going to be great fun :)

    Great items from you, man. I’ve bear in mind your stuff previous to and you are just too great. I actually like what you have acquired right here, really like what you are saying and the best way during which you are saying it. You’re making it entertaining and you continue to take care of to keep it wise. I can not wait to learn far more from you. That is actually a tremendous site.

    As visitors show up, companion them into a pitch black space, which is just lit up by black lights and radiates with radiance in the dark and fiber-optic items.

    The tent look amazing but we have so no space for that lol
    Where did you get the Happy Birthday banner? I am looking for something like that but in Gold/Pink.
