A Monster 1st Birthday Party....

And just like that he's ONE!..... a whole year gone, and my how he has grown. Too quick for my liking, the baby has grown up and is now a toddler. 
Already walking, soon he'll be running. But he'll always be my baby boy.



To celebrate such a massive birthday we had a party for our little man over the weekend. Family, friends and even the weather turned up for him. 
A beautiful (hot) spring day, with great food. He had such a wonderful day, despite being a little unwell, he was all smiles and the super happy, fun little guy that everyone knows and loves.







A Hairy Monster Cake - not a bad effort for my first real piping and butter cream icing attempt


 He knows how to party hard this one!

A special thank you to everyone who came to help celebrate our special little mans first year

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
