The Tale of Peter's First Birthday

There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you. - Beatrix Potter


Let us start this post with a tale... the tale of Peter's First Birthday. Once upon a time there was a little rabbit called Peter, who was turning one. His celebration began with a few little ideas that turned a simple and whimsical vision into reality, featuring bluegum and wattle centrepieces, a blue and white colour palette and an incredible backdrop by JAKS Hire and Events

The tale of Peter's First Birthday began on the deck of the Palais Hotel in Semaphore, with Peter's Mum Sandra opting for simple yet effective styling. This included a gorgeous dessert buffet, with an incredible two tier cake by Carol from That Cake Lady, delicious cake pops and the most adorable Peter Rabbit cookies. 

Small details were not forgotten, with specially made placemats and centrepieces to create an 'instagramable' flatlay that guests could snap before lunch. If you've been reading along for a while now, you'd know that the small details are the ones we love most, as they make a space come alive.

So the kids didn't get into trouble with Mr. McGregor, we set up the perfect area for all the little rabbits running around... Somewhere comfortable, where they could play and keep them happy and quiet for a while. The stunning table was supplied by our friends at JAKS Hire and Events, along with the bunnies and pillows. 

Peter's First Birthday celebration was a magical day, one that we are so happy to have brought to life through the simple yet classy colour palette and attention to detail, all of course while keeping Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit in mind.

We love being part of First Birthdays and the memories created to last a lifetime - get in touch so we can help you bring your vision to life!
