    I am trying to be super organised as I am very soon going to zero pay until after James' 1st Birthday.

    I want to spread the cost and get as much in advance as I can. I am already buying things like socks and PJ's for 12m + so I'll wrap those up!

    Any help appreciated.

    We are not 100% having a party but on the day we'll def want balloons / banners etc so any advice where to get them from is welcome.

    I am also doing my Crimbo list :shock: :shock:

    xxxxxxxx

    I've just bought all of Ethan's 1st birthday things for 6 weeks time!
    Here's what we've bought:
    - Invitations, balloons, banners, cake stand and in the process of ordering his cake

    Presents:
    - Mickey mouse ride on car
    - Large talking 'igglepiggle' toy
    - In the night garden bedtime books
    - Jumbo crayons, washable paint and apron
    - Aquadoodle mat
    - Table & chair (still on the look out for this)
    - Bounce & spin zebra

    Think that's everything?! We have bought everything online. Ebay is fab for the decorations/presents and amazon is also good for bargain presents.

    Our babies are growing up too quickly - can't believe he's ONE in 6 weeks :shock:

    xx

    Thanks ladies, I've got a few bits and pieces in already so I am feeling on top of it all. I'll carry on stockpiling for Crimbo too.

    We have a big family - immediate (parents, siblings and James' first cousins) makes 23 people.. 26 including us. Which is a nightmare if we just want a small party :shock:

    We only do Crimbo pressies for the kids in the family, so that's 9 of the little monsters this year !!!

    xxxxxxxx
