Sophie's 1st Birthday

Sophie turned 1 in June last year, so I thought I would write a post on what we did for her birthday in case anyone was wondering or was looking for ideas. 

So to start off, we had received a gift voucher as a christening present (which was September 2013). We went and spoke to the photographer at the beginning of the year as we wanted to book something but we weren't quite sure what to do really. That was when she said that cake smashes are a really popular way to celebrate and capture a 1st birthday. We thought it was a great idea and it looked really fun - so we booked it for Friday 13th June which was the day of Sophie's birthday.

It soon came around, I still can't believe how fast that first year went! We were booked in for the shoot at 11am. We had picked up the cake the day before from someone local who I knew from school. It was perfect and we were really pleased with it! I had chosen a couple of outfits for her too.

The photoshoot went really well. Sophie wasn't walking then, only super-fast crawling haha! But we got some great pictures and we ended up buying the disc with the pictures on as it obviously works out cheaper and we couldn't choose just a few. I can't wait to show her the pictures when she's older!

We then went home, bathed her (as she was covered in cake!) and helped her open her presents! We spent the rest of the day at home as a family, which was nice.



The following day was her party. We had close family and friends round and we had a buffet with the usual food; sandwiches, crisps, salad, breadsticks, dips etc. and of course her birthday cake! My sister made her an In The Night Garden cake as it was Sophie's favourite TV programme at the time.

That's it! We all had a lovely weekend and I can't believe I'll be planning her 2nd birthday soon!
