NEW YEAR'S BIRTHDAY PARTY





If you follow me on Instagram you have probably noticed I've been sharing some of my favourite photos from my daughters recent birthday party. The entire tablescape just turned out so pretty, so I thought why not share it on the blog too! I love planning my daughters birthday parties at the moment. My eldest daughter is obsessed with everything sparkly and pink so it's quite easy to create girlie birthday tablescapes that are stylish too. My daughter turned 5 on New Year's Eve, so I wanted to create a pretty little tablescape that would go nicely with our New Year's decor as well.

Since her birthday is on New Year's Eve, it's always a little challenging to plan. There is so much going on post Christmas but I kind of like how it marks the end of the Christmas celebrations for us. I think the trick with New Year's birthday parties is to add a dash of metallics to the mix. A gold or silver table runner will easily double up for the adults party in the evening too.

I'm a big fan of supermarket cakes and we usually get ours from Waitrose or M&S. I love that the cakes can be personalised and that there are so many cute designs to choose from. They are not too expensive either which why I don't think I'll ever attempt to bake a cake myself. Although, I think we have pretty much gone through all their design so I might need to find a new cake maker soon. Our pink parcel cake was from Waitrose and it definitely  tasted as good as it looked (if not better!).





When ever I'm throwing a birthday party at home (for the kids or the grown ups), flowers always play a big part. I can't imagine a birthday table setting without some pretty flowers. I always buy the flowers on the day or the day before so they look as fresh as possible. I hand picked the flowers for this bouquet as I knew exactly what I wanted. I wanted to create a delicate bouquet with some of my daughters favourite flowers like roses and daisies. I also wanted to add some eucalyptus leaves to the bouquet as they always make the entire flower arrangement smell amazing. I love how the bouquet turned out and it was my florists idea to use grass at the bottom of the bowl vase. I love the grass effect so much that I will definitely steal this idea again! If you're not a fan of arranging flowers, take your vase to the florist and let them do the hard work for you. Flower arranging is truly a skill but the more you do it, the better you get.



We also bought the rest of our party food from Waitrose. I usually go for a nice mix of hot and cold food. I always try to cater for adults too. I think it's nice to have some blinis or macaroons on the table, although funnily enough usually the kids end up eating them before the adults get to them!





I love the Rainbow birthday range from Hobby Craft. It's the perfect mix of colour and metallics!



You can't have a birthday party without some balloons, right? I love the mix of pink and gold here. Confetti balloons are great for grown up parties too or on New Year's Eve. They look so elegant and chic. I kind of wish they would stay up forever to match the rest of my gold accessories.




Happy party planning!
