Happy Birthday Daddy

It was Brett’s Birthday yesterday and Florence wanted to get him something special for his first Birthday as a Daddy. So a few weeks ago we went down to our local ceramic painting shop called the Creative Biscuit. It’s such a lovely place to go with a few friends for the afternoon and paint a plate, cup, jug, vase, money box, ornament etc. I’ve done it a few times in the past and knew that they could do ceramics with babies hand and foot prints if you pre-book.

Flo chose a side plate as she thought Daddy could use it for his legendary sausage sandwiches and chose the colour red for the foot prints as that’s his favourite colour. The lovely Moss Stitch painted Flo’s feet, which were surprisingly un-ticklish and printed them onto the plate. I then wrote the message for Flo, using her Dad’s favourite nickname for her, which is Bunround.

He liked it very much.


  1. Brett could have at least put a shirt on. ;-) Haha, that's a cool idea / plate though.

  2. You've inspired me - my baby daddy's birthday is next week and I was looking for a nice gift idea!!

  3. What a lucky Daddy to have such a special gift to treasure from his daughter. Just goes to show that a little thought goes a long way and personalised gifts are extra special. Well done you.
