It’s about a month of planning and finally the big day come ~ today is baby Zaanse first birthday ! I started to plan and collect the theme I like for baby Zaanse birthday party since a month ago, I pinned all the interesting party ideas in my pinterest and started to plan how to decorate for baby Zaanse birthday party. I didn’t want to spend so much and had no much time to do many DIY things, so most of the party decor items were ordered online from taobao including the 3-tier cake stands below :

The party hats also got from online, while the lanterns were bought from Typo. Kenji hang them into a “Z” letter which is the first letter of “Zaanse”. Besides of getting things from online, I also bought a lot of party things from daiso including the paper cups, spoons etc.

Initially I wanted to DIY our own buntings for baby Zaanse but I was too busy with other works, so I just bought one from online shop.

We started to decor the room while baby Zaanse is sleeping .. she was so excited when she wake up and saw all the buntings and pictures hanging around.

Finally, all the foods have come. I ordered the birthday cake and cupcakes from the Yeast Pastry House in Kota Laksamana. Their cakes and breads are very nice, nicer than most of the bakery shops in Singapore.

Kenji also bought his favourite peanuts for the party, I guess he was the only one like it :p

I prepared all the fruit cups with green and red grapes, strawberry and peach. They looked nice when placed together with the cupcakes.

For the birthday cake, I ordered a simple 1kg fruit cake and put a little bunting I made for baby Zaanse.
