Pippa Middleton's party advice
Mar 5, 2013, 12:02 GMT
Pippa Middleton has given advice on how to throw a first birthday party.
The 29-year-old royal - younger sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine - was writing in her magazine Party Times and she has given tips on how parents should celebrate their offspring's milestone.
One of the pieces of advice is: 'Play some nursery and party music in the background... Or peek-a-boo is always a winner.'
She also suggested to keep the party memorable by decorating the room with balloons because 'babies all love balloons!'.
She also includes the recipe for croustades - a fiddly finger-food, garnished with Hollandaise sauce and pan-fried crispy pancetta - but recommends that 'to keep expense down' hosts should limit canapes to two per person.
Pippa - who will become an auntie when her sister gives birth yo her first child in July - advised parents to 'baby-proof' the house because 'most of your guests will probably be crawling'.
Party Times is the online magazine of Middleton family business Party Pieces and Pippa is the editor.
Last year, she drew criticism for her party planning book, 'Celebrate', giving extremely simple and obvious advice on how to throw a good bash.
She was recently appointed as a columnist for Waitrose Kitchen magazine.
