Inside Kate and Rio Ferdinands magical first birthday for Cree with TOWIE stars

Kate Ferdinand and her fellow former TOWIE pals have given a glimpse inside the magical first birthday party for her sweet son Cree.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 30, and her ex-England footballer husband Rio, 43, who recently gave a look inside their luxurious trip to the Maldives, pulled out all the stops for the little boy as they celebrated with Kate's fellow TOWIE stars.

Kate, who is also a step-mother to Rio's children Lorenz, 15, Tate, 13, and Tia, 10, enlisted the help of celebrity event planner GO:PR & Events to create a truly special day for their little one.

The parents had a huge marquee set up for their baby boy and opted for a colour palette of blue, gold and cream for the celebrations.

The team set up a huge storybook which was printed with 'the story of…Cree' in blue font along with a huge balloon arch to create a gorgeous focal point and picture backdrop.

We can also see that Kate organised for a grazing table to be set up for the little ones which featured blue hydrangeas in wicker vases and miniature plates and cups for the guests to tuck into the party food.

Cream and brown cushions were scattered around the benches along with plenty of rugs to add texture to the stunning picnic area.

Taking a closer look, we can also see clusters of white balloons hanging from the top off the marquee to create the illusion of clouds.

The birthday boy was also treated to a bespoke cake with TOWIE star Saffron Lempriere sharing the creation with her 140,000 Instagram followers.

We can see that the cake had a storybook theme and featured a teddy bear along with gold stars, clouds and miniature novels.

Kate also shared a snap of Cree with his new toys which included a miniature red electric car in the snap captioned to her 1.4million followers: "Cool CreeCree."

Meanwhile former TOWIE star Lydia Bright attended with her daughter Loretta, one, along with fellow ITV2 beauty Georgia Kousoulou and her eight month old son Brody.

Cree looked adorable in a brown corduroy outfit paired with white trainers and a bucket hat while Loretta donned a pink dress printed with her name and a matching tutu.

Brody also looked super cute in a grey tracksuit as he posed with Loretta and Brody in the snap captioned by Georgia: "The next generation. Lovely day celebrating Cree 1st birthday. Thank you @xkateferdinand for lovely day."

Lydia posed with her daughter Loretta in front of the birthday storybook and looked stylish in a printed cardigan and clogs with a vintage hat.

It comes after Kate recently discussed her blended family on the community page she set up on Instagram surrounding the topic last month.

“Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to feel a part of our partners & children’s life, we at times can feel like an outsider,” she wrote.

Kate continued: “This is something I still struggle with & to be honest, I think I always will. This has no baring on how my husband & the children treat me but more to do with entering into an already formed family.

“So many memories already made and a full family life before I became part of their new chapter.

“This already formed family is really my whole life, yet they have a life without & before me, it’s a hard thing to get your head around at times.”
