According to today’s Daily Mail, Prince George will be celebrating his birthday with a Peter Rabbit themed party when he turns one this week.
With his grandparents running a party items website, I suppose it makes perfect sense that they’d throw a party for him complete with a theme.
What better way for a one year old to celebrate than with a fun birthday, bright tablecloths and games?
Some might argue that at the age of one, you don’t really know what’s going on, so what’s the point in a party – isn’t it really for the parents?!
I suppose they might have a point, as my now 10 year old started to fall asleep in his high chair halfway through the birthday tea.
At least he managed a little bit of cake before face planting and pushing up zeds, leaving the rest of us to party in his absence as he napped.
I think suitable themed parties at one are great though, and Peter Rabbit is an excellent choice.
Here, it was a Winnie The Pooh tea party for the now 10 year old, complete with Winnie the Pooh cake, table cloth, paper plates, etc. (We skipped on games though. He’d only have tried to eat the pass the parcel. Being one and all.)
The now 7 year old had a Tigger themed party when he turned one. Being a little party monster, he managed to stay awake through all of his.
Again, Tigger cake, napkins etc. Not to mention party bags with things like chocolate buttons or bubbles in (for the parents to blow for them, of course :-) )
It’s all good fun.
Over the years, the 10 year old has had Winnie the Pooh, Fimbles, and Thomas The Tank Engine themes before progressing to soft play parties when the nursery and school years were reached and class parties took over from little tea parties.
The 7 year old has had themes including Tigger, and Bob the Builder.
Little Prince George will have a great time at his, and it’s great to see even as a Royal you can have a classic, childhood tea party for your birthday.
