Your baby’s first birthday party is special and a garden-theme is not only lovely, but it can also bring a touch of colour to your home or venue. And, don’t forget, you don’t have to wait until summer to host the perfect garden get-together, simply wrap up warm and pop up a gazebo and you’re ready for a winter or autumn edition.
There’s no doubt about it, the birthday bake is the star of any party. We’ve rustled up some of our favourite icing-smothered finds below.
Wondering what to serve up for the rest of the day? We have a whole post filled with foodie inspo here.
1. Enchanting bake.
Personalise your baby’s birthday cake just like this enchanting garden scene. We love the matching cupcakes in the background.
2. Peter Rabbit’s patch.
Peter Rabbit certainly loved Mr McGregor’s garden, so this beautifully-designed cake is ideal for a first birthday.
3. Classic floral.
Keep it simple, yet classy with a naked cake. Use real or artificial flowers to create stunning results like this. This rustic ‘one’ decoration can be easily made with some hessian fabric and a wooden skewer.

Why not recreate your own outdoor sanctuary with some icing and a pinch of creativity?
5. Girly and gold.
Similar to number 3 on this list, this cake has a girly vibe using pink and gold tones.

A plain cake can be transformed with some blooms from your own backyard. Alternatively, grab some artificial flowers from your local florist or craft store and you’ll be able to keep them as a memento.
