My Baby Erfan Turns One!

Yup, on the 27th of April my lil honey bug turned 1 and I still can't believe how fast time flies...Goodbye baby and welcome toddlerhood!

We had a small family celebration at my parents' place in Bangi. I wanted Erfan's first birthday celebration to be special even if we are not having a full on birthday party, I still wanted to have a theme and plan around and sew the decor myself. Brace yourself for pic heavy entry! :D

First up, the cake! I wanted a bright aqua and red, baby elephant theme. So I ordered this cake from Scrummycakedesign (she's on Instagram) and it turned out amazing!

LOVE the cake! And I also ordered some sugar cookies from Rollypops by Lyza Ghazalli (she's on Facebook). I wanted elephant shape cookies in the theme colors. And she did an amazing job!

I made a quilted table topper a week before the party. I used a table topper pattern by Kimberbell Designs. This one is truly made with love! :)

Sorry phone pic :P

Sorry phone pic :P

So overall I am happy with how the main table was set up :

I also sewed some buntings and garlands to add to the festive mood :

And the birthday boy? I sewed this cute shortall the day before :

I appliqued the elephant on the chest, I think it adds character and of course to fit the theme lol...I used an older shortall pattern by Tie Dye Diva.

Birthday boy was having a nap when I woke him up to change and blew the candle, hence the spaced out look on his face lol :

Here's the front and back of the shortall :

With big sisters who were having a blast because they get presents too lol

My 3 Angels....
The highlight of the day, baby first cake bashing session! It was so funny how Erfan keeps messing with the cake. He only ate a handful though lol...

Love his expressions! 

And finally, overwhelmed and perplexed with all the presents he gets lol

It's been a long time since we had a family birthday celebration. My parents now have 7 grandchildren and we always celebrate at their home and the tradition is each child will get a present from grandparents, aunties and uncles. So we had to combine the celebration to save lol

My bubba Erfan, he has come so far! He is my cheeky sunshine, so active and a happy baby. Kisses and more kisses!
