Just over a week ago, Kora turned 1 years old. First of all, I would just like to apologise for this post being a little late – since homeschooling Kory it would seem I have even less time than I did before and second of all, how is Kora a whole year old already and where has that time gone at all?!
I say this all the time but I honestly feel like she was born just two minutes ago but then somehow I must have blinked and now here before me stands a toddler that is walking and talking. It is actually mind blowing.
Kory’s first year went by fast and it’s hard to believe he is now 4 years old but I have to say I think Kora’s first year has gone by even faster (how is that even possible?!) I think it may have something to do with having two children to run around after rather than just the one and also – lockdown. (We have Covid to thank for that.) Nevertheless, my baby girl who is no longer a baby but who will always be my baby is now a toddler and I am super excited to share with you all some details and photos from her 1st birthday.
Whilst planning Kora’s birthday, I had lots of things to consider in terms of what we could and actually were allowed to plan. I knew I didn’t want something big and over the top for her anyway but still under the current circumstances (again – Covid) we were limited as to what we could do so we opted for something smaller yet still special. We actually did something similar for Kory’s first birthday too.
Kora’s birthday landed on a Sunday this year so on the day of her birthday, we had a small tea party for her at our house. On the morning of her birthday after she had finished opening all her birthday presents with the help from her big brother of course! It was time to get everything ready for the tea party. With the help from my mum and nan I decorated the house and garden and just put on a little buffet for the close family and friends we had invited to celebrate her birthday with us and somehow even managed to have everything ready in time!
For the buffet, There was various sandwiches, pasta, salad, sausage rolls, cocktail sausages, crisps, cakes and sweets.
We decided the theme to the tea party was going to be ‘Unicorns’ which seemed perfect really as Kora’s bedroom is decorated with unicorns also and she seems to love them! Of course, there was the all important birthday cake to match!
The tea party turned out perfectly and was everything we could have imagined for our little girl’s very 1st birthday. It really was a unicorn tea party fit for a princess. Kora really enjoyed her special day.
Thank you for taking the time to read all about Kora turning 1! I hope you liked this blog post.
