When I met my husband for the first time, my first impression was WOW what a gentleman. True story. And you know what they say about first impressions... So I thought to keep him, seeing as true gentlemen are very rare thing these days, I had struck gold. Every now and then I stop and marvel at the great job his mother has done in raising such a great man. Then I look at myself and ponder if I'm on the right track at all with raising my little darling.
That is my aim, teaching him to be a true gentleman, just like his father is. One of those very rare specimens. So in that theme we threw him a little gentleman party in honour of turning big 1. Bow ties, mustaches, top hats, that's what little gentlemen are made of.
|Rule no.56. Gentleman always makes sure that everyone is dressed to suit the occasion. Bow ties for all the little guests.|
|Rule no.12. Gentleman always makes sure that all the bellies are full and well nourished.|
Our gentleman's coctail party table included dips and crackers, dukkah, gourmet sandwiches, vegetable sticks, fruit kebabs, sippy drinks, and my favorite; frozen banana treats. As a cake I once again made cupcakes. I think they work so great with little people. All the food was thought to suit 1 year olds hence why there wasn't too many sugary treats.
|Rule no. 93. Gentleman never eats too much cake.|
|Rule no. 134. Gentleman never says no for a little help, especially from mama.|
|Rule no. 46. Gentleman always makes sure that there is something fun to do.|
|Rule no. 45. Gentleman always makes sure that everyone has a good time.|
|Rule no. 76. Gentleman always says thank you and makes others feel appreciated.|
What a dear little gentleman we've got there. Thank you everyone who came to spend the day with us and 6for all the wonderful gifts. Feeling very blessed.
