It is truly amazing how quickly time flies. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were bringing Henry home from the hospital and already we are celebrating his first birthday and the little person he has become.
My sister in law kindly hosted the party so we could celebrate with our friends and family in Vancouver. I decided on a Safari/Jungle theme and despite the logistical nightmare of transporting 8ft palm trees from Victoria and having half of my party supplies not arrive in time, we managed to pull everything together and 'The Walker Watering Hole' looked very jungle-like on the day!
It was a lot of fun making little things to go with the Jungle theme like birthday hats for the 'party animals' and cake bunting and a pin the tail on the Boar game. I'm also so glad we included some personal touches like the Instax photo garland so we could share some of the special moments Henry has experienced in his first year.
As first birthday's go, Henry's was a success- he had milk tart and carrot cake and played with ribbon and boxes (and sometimes the presents that came in them) and had endless cuddles from the people who love him.
