Giraffe House 1st Birthday Party

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a lovely Friday so far.

I’ve decided to keep this A – Z Challenge post light (it is Friday, after all) and share images of my son’s first birthday party at the Giraffe House in Cape Town.

Planning and executing children’s parties is a passion of mine and I was so excited to host one for my son. I booked the venue, organised the decor and made most of the food myself. The birthday cake was made by my best friend and we had a great day all round.

The decor we had at the party. The venue gave us those little wooden giraffes as party favours. The kids loved them.

Some of the animals we saw. Each of the children were given a feeding bucket and were able to feed certain animals. They absolutely loved it.

We were treated to a free reptile show. It was really great and I kissed a frog:

It was slimy and tasted like algae.

It wouldn’t be the Giraffe House without Gerry. She is so friendly and made the experience so memorable.

The birthday boy. He loved seeing all the animals, running around and having all his friends and family around.

 

The photos were taken by Maryke van Wyngaard, she is a great local photographer. Check her out on Facebook here.

  1. What a beautiful little boy! He radiates joy. You did a fantastic job designing the party — is that your profession? Your friend created a gorgeous cake, too. May I ask what flavor it was on the inside?

    Throwback to my son’s first birthday party at The Giraffe House in Stellenbosch, Cape Town. His next birthday is around the corner and these photos have me quite emotional. Have a look and let me know what you think!
