Inside Rex’s 1st Birthday at Home


Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash celebrated Rex’s 1st birthday at home with the family.

The mum of three recorded all the preparations for the festivities on her Instagram stories. Stacey in no stranger to a DIY and getting creative in the kitchen and today was no different. She made and decorated a birthday cake from scratch but had a few bumps in the road getting it to look the way she had planned. With no access to an electric whisk, she attempted to make the icing smooth with a potato masher but she had no luck!

Stacey made the donut wall with a square piece of cardboard and glue sticks. She stuck the glue sticks to the wall so the donuts could hang on them, painted over it all and stuck a label on top.

Keeping the celebrations with the theme of rustic jungle, Stacey made a green balloon arch and decorated with greenery and stuffed animals. Rex’s birthday outfit also fit with the theme as he was in a onesie with leaves on it.

Stacey just shows that you don’t have to be extravagant with your baby’s 1st birthday. Although we’re sure she would have loved more of her family around to celebrate, it looked like the perfect way to spend a 1st birthday. Happy birthday Rex!
