Our son's first birthday was to be a cheerful and fun event above all. Since he loves the balloons we knew where to start as far as decorations go.
As for the colors, we wanted to evoke true fall-winter Carnival colors like red, orange and brown with splashes of blue which were everywhere; from bunting, food to invitations (which were all DIY). We are a billingual couple so the bunting said "happy birthday" in both languages and the birthday songs from both countries were sung.
The recepies we used were all toddler friendly as all food was vegan, raw and contained no sugar. I've been following a marvellous blog about raw food, Golubka, so there was no question where I would get my inspiration from! I loved the challenge of making these raw deserts, playing with the shapes and flavours. I was thrilled when everyone who tried them loved the result.
All in all the party was a success and I believe little D enjoyed it as well!
