Aj’s First Birthday Party at 4

First of all, Happy New Year! This post should have come last year but better late than never! 🙂

We finally did a birthday party for Aj the weekend before Christmas and it went better than I expected!

I previously blogged about Nigerian vs British kids parties and I was torn on how to go about the party. I knew I wanted it to be as stress-free as possible (for me!) but for it to be fun for the kids. Hubby and I were pretty much on the same page regarding this AND maintaining a non-expensive budget too!

So what did we do in the end?

The Birthday Weekend – Nigerian & British Kiddies Parties

Last weekend was what I classed as the birthday weekend as AJ had two parties to attend from her friends in the nursery and she had Sammy the Bear over so it was a fun weekend for her all round! It was actually quite interesting for me as a Nigerian parent as this was my first proper British birthday party. We’ve gone for quite a few Nigerian kiddies parties so it was quite interesting to see the difference in experience. Note, we’re talking about toddler parties here!
