First Birthday celebration and decoration ideas

Otto's birthday is fast approaching and now less than a week away.. his first trip around the sun, one whole year on earth!!

I've been emotional about this for the past couple of weeks, so who knows how i'll feel on the actual day.

Having a pandemic baby meant that i didn't get to have a baby shower, nor did we do any sort of celebration once he had arrived, so i've been on the hunt for the past few weeks for first birthday celebration ideas and thought i would share some of my finds here in case it's helpful!

If you're on a tight budget, these cute party invites are downloadable from etsy. Alternatively, Paperless Post is a great sustainable option!

Another Etsy find is this acrylic personalised name cake topper. You can find them on there for £3+ and if you get just the name you could re-use it every year, which of course is another great sustainable option.
