Birthday and christening cake Cupcakes

Lucas turned one on Monday and we combined his birthday party with his Christening on Sunday.


The Christening went well apart from the vicar taking his dummy out of his mouth to baptise him, not sure why he needed to do that but Lucas wasn’t impressed and cried through his baptism before being paraded around church as a red crying blob of a baby. Up to two weeks ago, Lucas could take or leave his dummy but this past couple of weeks he seems to be relying on it more but he also has his first teeth popping through now so maybe it is soothing his gums.

Next, monsoon

Lucas wore a shirt and trouser set from Next with braces and a bow tie. I wore a silk dress from Monsoon. I made up party bags and we hired some soft play toys to go in a local function room.


Lucas really enjoyed seeing all of our family and friends at his party and had more of a chilled out day on his birthday. He went for his last ‘watch me grow’ photography session on Tuesday. I can’t wait to see the photos, he had some natural ones taken before some with a cake, balloons and party hats and then some bubble bath ones.

I bought Lucas’ Godmother a keyring with his footprints and handprint on from the same place I bought my necklace. The quality is incredible once again from Bella and Bow and it is actually on sale at the moment, depending on their cut off dates it would make a lovely Mothers Day gift.

    Oh, my goodness! He looks so cute! Our youngest did the same thing during her baptism. She would not quit screaming unless she had that silly pacifier! Uggh! I wish I had thought to do what you did and have a joint Christening and birthday party. For our oldest, we had a big first b-day party on a Saturday and then her baptism and Christening luncheon the next day on Sunday. It was sooo much work. Looking at your post makes me wonder why I didn’t have the brains to just have one joint party on that Sunday. lol — Amy @

    The christening looks lovely, his outfit is so cute. I’ve never heard of Bella & Bow before, their stuff looks amazing. I have a necklace which is footprints with my sons name and date of birth on.
