First of all, Happy 2016 to all my Bond Girls! It’s good to be back to blogging after a short break for Christmas/NYE, and today’s post is a very exciting one for me: all about baby Vienna’s first birthday party in December.
At first I didn’t want to do anything too big or time-consuming with her birthday so close to Christmas and everyone getting really busy with the holidays. However, since it was her first birthday, I decided it was worth the effort in the long run. I tried to differentiate her party theme as far from Christmas as possible, haha, and I think it turned out pretty well. It was a lovely day and she’s loving her presents, especially her Silver Cross Dolls Prams from Play Like Mum.
A special thanks to Minted for kindly providing the invitations and some of the paper décor as well as to my parents for letting us use their home and for ordering such a beautiful (and delicious) birthday cake for Vienna. The decorations were amazing, we were so happy with them. Next year, we might even look into purchasing a custom neon sign with a birthday message for her. That would look amazing and we would be able to use it every year. That’s something we will probably consider.
Hope you were able to follow along on Snapchat (irinabond) – we had a great time! If not, I also posted a little video on the Bond Girl Glam Facebook page.
