The last few days have been a complete whirlwind as we have been super busy celebrating Bella’s Third birthday! We kicked off the celebrations with her party which we held on the 5th, a few days before her actual birthday. With it being Guy Fawkes night we decided to have another fireworks party, especially as it was such a success last year.
The birthday girl had requested a pink sprinkles cake as she is obsessed with all things sprinkles so I used this as my inspiration for this years party theme. I chose the most gorgeous plates, napkins, straws and party boxes from Party Pieces which fit the sprinkles theme perfectly. I also got some amazing confetti filled balloons that received so many compliments at the party! I really enjoy hosting parties and one of my favourite bits is choosing all the decor and seeing it all come together on the day.
Once everyone had arrived, we served slow cooked pulled pork baps, hot dogs and hot potato wedges outside on the deck before doing sparklers and letting off some fantastic fireworks once it had got really dark. We also built a huge bonfire to help keep everyone toasty! I was so pleased with the fireworks we chose this year, they really lit up the whole garden and everyone absolutely loved them. Bella found them hilarious and didn’t stop giggling the whole time they were going off! We finished the evening off with birthday cake and Bella opened a few of her presents. She had such a lovely time surrounded by all her favourite people and came up to me a couple of times to thank me and tell me how much she was loving her party! It definitely made all the effort SO worth it.
Josh and I both booked Bella’s actual birthday off work and we have the loveliest day together. The morning was spent chilling at home in our PJ’s playing with all her new presents, watching Disney films and eating chocolate pancakes. We then went for a family swim in the afternoon before having a little birthday tea at home.
It’s been a chaotic few days but plenty of fun too. Our girl is so loved by everyone and I feel extremely lucky to be her Mama. I’ll end this post with a few of my favourite photos from Bella’s third birthday celebrations!
