It was a big weekend for the Horans! Kevin, my nephew and godson, had his first birthday. Mum (Lorraine) and Dad (Brian) invited about 25 guests for a casual birthday party at home and James and I helped out where we could. I was on cooking duty while James used his skills on the face painting.

Kevin checks out the piñata and decorations to make sure everything is in order before the guests arrive…

…then Brian and Kevin check on the food.

I put together a very simple, child friendly, vegetarian party menu of: mini egg and lettuce sandwiches, mini margarita pizzas, sweet potato wedges with harissa mayo dipping sauce, chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolate drizzled fruit kebabs.

Cousin Lucy enjoys a fruit kebab and a margarita pizza.

The cake was a lot of fun. Kevin is the worlds biggest Mickey Mouse fan so the least I could do was make him his very own Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake.

Happy Birthday Kevin xox
