Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit Girl First Birthday : The Tale of Amelia's First Year (50 photos)
The Tale of Amelia's First Birthday....
Once upon a time, Mr. & Mrs. Raz brought a perfect little girl to the world and her story began....
This vibrant event celebrated our lovely daughter Amelia's first birthday !
I wanted to do something very special for my daughter's birthday. Amelia's first birthday party had to be very special (as her) and should be filling with loads of love and happiness. She is such a lovely, cheeky bunny girl.
So, the theme of Amelia's 1st Birthday party was inspired by her much-loved character 'Peter rabbit and his friends' by Beatrix Potter. Amelia enjoys every minutes of her visit to Beatrix Potter's house in Lake District (England) and attractions in Windermere.
Long before Amelia's arrival, we brought a 'my first year Peter rabbit baby book' for Amelia. With the great influence from my one of the best-loved children's stories of all time, I then design and print Beatrix Potter inspired monthly onesies collection for her. I personally adore this collection very much. (This collection is now available to purchase on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LoveAme).
Most of the Beatrix Potter themed parties are centralised around the Peter rabbit (perfect for boy's party) . So, Instead of going with the common theme and colours, I decided to combine few Beatrix Potter characters together in to the theme (Peter rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin, Benjamin bunny, Cottontail, the Flopsy Bunnies, Mr. McGregor garden etc) .
Since the birthday is in September, and it is a girl's party, I used colour palette of pink shades and mix with gold, yellow, orange, green, white, purple, and even with 'Peter rabbit' blues.
The stunning birthday cake featured the Jemima Puddle-Duck sitting on Beatrix Potter's new tale 'The tale of Amelia's first year' made out of all edible fondant. This new editable book starts with, "Once upon a time, Mr. & Mrs. Raz brought a perfect little girl to the world and her story began.... "(We had a very specific idea about this cake. My husband wanted to add Jemima the duck on the book and design one charming little cake with one tier. Iwona at MKcakes (www.forkidsparties.co.uk/cakes-gallery) did a spectacular job. The entire cake was stunning.
Accompanying cookies and cupcakes on the dessert table were fashioned in the shape of vegetables, fruits and Easter eggs with edible wafer paper decorations. All cookies and cupcakes were made and decorated by my husband. It was the first time he ever made cupcakes and cookies.
I did all graphics, a custom party designs,and they are all handmade by me. This party package ( www.etsy.com/shop/JPEGgen) includes Peter rabbit birthday invitation (wrapped in light green cabbage leaf), thank you cards, crepe paper backdrop, food signs (placed card, chocolate wrappers, drink bottle wrappers, cupcake wrappers and cake/cupcake toppers...) cutlery mat designs, birthday banner & flags, welcome banner, welcome message (welcome to Mr. McGregor garden), door hanger, pin the tail on the Peter rabbit game, hand stamped envelopes,birthday wishes cards and the sign that encouraging guests to sign 'birthday wishes'for Amelia.
Both invitation and wishes cards made with cream card stock paper and hand distressed to give unique vintage look. Both cards were accompanied with ' Beatrix Potter ' hand stamped crafty envelopes. All birthday wishes keep in a handmade keepsake box with other messages sent by our families and friends in Sri Lanka and UK and will be open on Amelia's 21st birthday.
In addition to party printable I design custom birthday board for Amelia and hand stamped photo frames. Watch me grow photo banners were much appreciated by the invitees. For the party table, my husband gathered up lots of Beatrix Potter toys and Peter rabbit hand painted chess set to enhance the overall presentation.
The official Peter rabbit toys for each child were another excited thing we used as party gifts. Every bunny kids were amazed by the two feet height peter rabbit.
The birthday girl is wearing an outfit mostly from Zara kids except my own 12 months bodysuit design and the baby Gap (USA) knitted Jemima hat.
All custom party designs, custom cross-stitch samples and baby bodies (and t-shirts) are available on my Etsy shops and websites.
