Here are a few ideas I have come up with so far...
Zoo - I've been wanting to take Osian to the zoo for quite a while, he seems very interested in animals so I think he would enjoy the zoo. We would have the choice of two Zoo's, either Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo, or Chester Zoo. Would take a fair bit longer to get to Chester Zoo, but it's worth the travelling. This option is very weather dependant though, if the weathers rubbish we wouldn't bother going, so maybe it would be best to take him whilst it's still summer instead.
Day out - Another weather dependant one. Osian seems to quite enjoy going for walks so I think he would enjoy just going somewhere for the day. We could try find somewhere with a park, and could have a nice picnic. Just like an ordinary day out, but maybe bring some cake along for the picnic!
Tea/Lunch Party - This is probably what we will end up doing. I think it would be nice for Osian to enjoy time with his family and I can attempt to make everyone some food (I hear disaster calling). If we go for this option I will try and have a little theme going, not sure what yet, will probably take to Pinterest for some inspiration. This option isn't weather dependent, which is a bonus. October seems to be an odd month weather wise, sometimes it's lovely whereas other times it's wet and windy.
I don't think hiring somewhere out is going to be an option, I'd rather keep it a bit more low key for his first birthday.
One thing I know for sure that I'm hoping to do is a cake smash photoshoot. I really love the idea of a cake smash, and I have seen some great pictures of other babies ones I've already asked my Dad if he would take the photos, which he has kindly agreed to, so I need to get a backdrop and the cake sorted.
Osian at 4 days old, can't believe it's time to start thinking about his 1st birthday!
What did you do for your little ones first birthday?
