Wilf's second birthday party


Wilf turned two years old on Saturday and we invited some of our family and friends to celebrate with us. There was cava a plenty (as usually happens when I meet with my mum friends!) as well as some little nibbles for kiddos and grown ups. I wanted to make Wilf's birthday cake but when it came down to it having a birthday at the busiest time of the year (retail wise) has meant most of my free time has been spent packing orders and maintaining the shop and this blog. Also I knew he would be thrilled with a shop bought cake just as long as it had his favourite pig on it ;)

We bought Peppa Pig themed bags which we filled with fake moustaches, a purse and a toy dinosaur for all the kiddos, along with some snacks. We also bought peppa pig balloons which we filled the night before his party..and then came down in the morning to find they had all deflated! Tom had to rush off to the supermarket for some plain ones as the sunken balloons were quite an eery sight. I made pipe cleaner crowns for the kids after the Peppa masks we ordered got lost in the post.

Like last year Wilf was given the loveliest gifts and he was so excited opening them all, there were plenty of gasps and once granny arrived he rushed to show her all his new things. He really does adore his granny, he spent the next day saying 'when are we going to see granny again?' over and over..luckily he only has to wait until Christmas!

Wilf's birthday it the first out of our little NCT group so it's always the first real celebration of yet another year of mothering. It also kicks off the festive season for us so it's a great excuse to get a bit jolly! The next few weeks will see all his little friends turn two and I'm really looking forward to chinking glasses and celebrating with my friends what a wonderful journey this parenting thing is.

I know two is supposed to be terrible but I'm looking forward to it!

my dress is ℅ of Marks and Spencer as is Wilf's blazer. They have 50% at the moment!

It looks like such a lovely day, although evidently the universe was testing you with your balloons deflating and your masks getting lost! Boo, I'm so impressed with your pipe cleaner crowns, definite mum points there. I hope you all had a lovely day, the photos are great and I love his peppa pig jumper. Where did you get it?

Looks like a crazy shindig! Its great that even though some things didn't go as planned (no masks and deflated balloons), you sound like you didn't stress too much about it and just came up with a new game plan - quick! Love the cat pictures - they are so darn sneaky!
