So it’s 10 days until Nandy turns one. how did that happen then!? It really makes me feel emotional can’t believe a year has gone by. Before I know it he will be 18.
To mark the occasion we have decided to visit our favourite photographer Sarah over at Pea Green Boat Photo (she took his bump and newborn photos too!) she has been known to work with Peter Andre and Emily and featured in vogue so we are in good hands! She will hopefully take a selection of photos indoor and outdoor (weather dependant) and so I decided to go for 2 outfit changes just encase.
My favourite colours for Nandy have always been black, white and teal so it made sense to stick to that scheme for the photo shoot.
I was fortunate enough to work with Pom Pom Studio on creating some beautiful poms to match the theme.
I also had the pleasure of customising some hats and crowns and a bib to match from lovely Instagram shops.
Everyone knows I love a spot of Instagram shopping so it made perfect sense to buy the clothing from those stores, especially ones we rep for including small ones apparel, I am Loved and Kids we Love.
OUTFIT 1 – SPLATTER
Custom Crown – Plenty of Pillows
Matching bib – Bibs and Booties
Romper – Kids we love
OUTFIT 2 – ONE
Ripped Leggings – small ones apparel
One tshirt – I am Loved
Custom Glitter Hat – Sweet and Berry
I simply cannot wait to capture these outfits in tomorrow’s photoshoot. I just hope Nandy behaves himself because he’s been grumpy all weekend. Also let’s hope the sun shines for us!
I hope you like these outfit ideas. Please pin on Pinterest! 🙂
Planning a beach themed party for your child? Stuck for ideas on party bags? Look no further…!!!
I planned the beach theme as Nandy turns 1 in July and hoped the weather would be hot enough to justify a beach theme!
I couldn’t just get away with handing out party bags after I’d been inspired by Pinterest to have buckets instead! It was just too relevant to the theme!
Now if you’re looking for cheap options then this isn’t going to be for you, being honest the cost of the party buckets must be in excess of £7 each child perhaps even £10. Multiply that by 15 children and it becomes an expensive option.
So what’s inside Nandys party buckets?
Inflatable beach balls
Beach colouring book
Shell or fish shaped crayon
Beach themed flash card
Beach themed foam bath shape
Deck chair striped candy bags with goodies inside
Plastic bath boat
Personalised thankyou tag
I sourced the sand bucket from Smyths toys for £1.69 each.
The flash cards were a steal at 20p a pack from the Range.
The foam bath shapes were £10 for a bag from Jojomaman Bebe.
The bubbles were from Tesco in their party aisle Approx £1 for 6.
The sunglasses were £1 each from Primark.
The deckchair style stripe candy bags were from Homesense. Approx £5 for 20 bags.
The shells and fish crayons were from Craystion station at approx 50p each.
The inflatable beach balls were from EBay at approx £1 each.
The colouring books were from Tiger at £1 each
The plastic boats were £1.50 for 4 boats from a local baby shop
The plastic sand moulds were £1 from Poundland for 3 moulds.
The thankyou tags were from Zazzle.
Now it’s only 3 weeks until his party – the countdown is officially on! I can feel myself getting emotional already!
Hubby says I’ve gone over the top on things but it’s not every day your first child turns one is it! I’m just trying to enjoy it as much as possible.
