Noah turns 4 - a birthday lunch with family

Noah is turning 4 next week so I got the family together over the weekend to celebrate. I can't believe our baby is almost 4! He loved seeing all of his grandparents, aunty, uncle and cousins and knew the day was all about him. 


As there were 15 of us for lunch I wanted to create a long table for us to all sit together. I popped 2 trestle tables together, hired 15 plastic chairs and then set the table with things we had at home.
To create the runner I got a roll of craft paper from the supermarket and wrote birthday messages on it in black texta. Too easy but cute and something different. I then placed various pot plants from around the house down the centre of the table and scattered Noah's matchbox cars between them.
 A number 4 balloon and other balloons in his favourite colours were the finishing festive touch.




Even though the adults outnumbered the kids I wanted to add some fun and personalised touches to the birthday lunch. I made up these straws with Noah's sweet face on them, some tiny teddy cars, organised a couple of party games and filled a piƱata with treats for the kids to go wild on!



We started off with a platter and drinks outside while we watched Noah unwrap his gifts. 
Then we sat down to a bbq lunch with a couple of salads and a potato bake. Yum! 









It was then time for Noah to blow out his candles and cut the cake. I made him his favourite chocolate mud cake and popped some Kinder Surprises and other choccies on top.
Simon also made his famous pavlova, it was a hit. Not a crumb left!




It was so lovely to get everyone together to celebrate our beautiful boys birthday.
We love you Noah to infinity and beyond!
