Waking up and realising that in under two months my cherub Lola will be ONE!!!! One part of me is freaking hejeebies (seriously, this is another year closer to having two teenage girls)… but the other part… yesssss time for a party!!! 😉

As an ex-events coordinator you can forgive me for throwing my all into my poor children’s birthday parties. And first birthdays have an extra special weight to them in my books ….. As the little ones are small enough to be content with just mama cuddles and food I find the party is just as much about the parents celebrating that crazy, exhausting but fabulous first year! And since I get a kick out of planning a party anyway (and yes I know many people couldn’t think of anything worse) much of the planned theme suits me to a tee……  coffee + donuts + tongue-in-cheek-Hipster-theme. 😉

Here’s my starting point for some inspiration….. I may be considering a hashtag piñata as well

Now I won’t be able to sleep for two months with way too many fun ideas (thanks Pinterest).
