|Number One Letters|
Continuing with the theme, comes the food, again all home made (get me!) and where possible Poppy related. My husband and I were up late the night before making the birthday cake. Maybe not the most professional looking cake but I was so chuffed we made it for her, best cake we have made anyway. My lovely friend Adele who definitely is a professional made us some beautiful Poppy cupcakes which tasted amazing too.

Other fun decorations I made included a 'Year of Photographs' one of each month and hung like bunting, party bags and facts about Poppy and her first year in the shape of a number one which we framed in red and black obviously.
To top the theme, the little lady clearly needed a dress to impress her guests, born in Spring made it easier to find a Poppy dress and at the bargain price of £8 from Matalan... SOLD! Completely biased I know but my god she takes my breath away when she wears it and lets face it, I will be lucky if she gets two months out of it.
