Welcome to the World Party

I can't believe its been a whole 6 months since Delilah was born, what I did with my time before having her I don't know! Anyway we wanted to have a little celebration for for her arrival, we would have liked to have done it when she was younger but to be quite honest life was far too hectic - (it still is!) We decided to have a 'Welcome to the World Party' as although me and Ian are both christened, we felt that we wanted Delilah to make the choice when she was older. We had such a lovely time, was the perfect way to celebrate our little bundle of joy with  music, food and all the people who love her. 
Here's the invite Ian and I designed, the party was held at Make Do & Mend (our favourite family hangout!)

Obviously Delilah had to have a special dress (!) and a little floral display from her aunt (Alie Blackman - check out her blog here)

Ian made some sugar mice.........

My mum, me and Alie made lots of cakes..........

My mum's drawing of little D on her card....

We gave people little scrolls of paper tied with ribbon which had Delilah's footprint on as a thank you for coming.

As a thank you for presents we made mix tapes! (or erm CD's) with Delilah-esque songs, like Hey There Delilah, a few Disney songs and of course Tom Jones!


  1. Oh that looks like such a good party and a very creative affair with you, your sis and mum on the case ;-) Delilah is one very lucky little lady to have you all (and very cute)!

  2. Miss Georgia, she is absolutely BEYOND CUTE! Oh, that little face is just too precious for words. Congratulations! And such wonderful invitations, too. The whole package, including Delilah, is perfection!
    Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
