The PARTY DETAILS
It was recently Australia Day here and whilst traditionally we as a family don’t really do much to mark the occasion, my girlfriend graciously hosted a low key BBQ at her place.
I made a tropical fruit platter (since I’m not the best cook) and she made a very cute star-studded watermelon, blueberry, feta and cucumber salad. It turned out to be a super fun day for the kids (and adults) – but it made me feel that we had celebrated this event not too long ago and then it hit uh-huh! we did celebrate Australia Day recently, October of last year to be exact!
The Australiana theme was in honour of my nephew, Finn’s first birthday. Although it’s not the most obvious party theme for a little boy’s first birthday, it made perfect sense – my in-laws had lived in London for the first year of Finn’s life and they were coming home to celebrate the milestone.
