Inside Alesha Dixon's festival-themed first birthday party for rarely-seen daughter Anaya with ice cream van and Teepee

ALESHA Dixon took to Instagram this evening to treat fans to a sneak peek at her rarely-seen daughter Anaya's incredible first birthday party.

The 41-year-old star and her husband Azuka Ononye threw a festival-themed bash for their daughter in their huge garden.

The Britain's Got Talent judge referred to the do as a 'Firstival' in the social media post, which revealed the finer detail of the day.

The first snap showed little Anaya feeling the fur rugs that had been put down underneath her pink and gold tent, with sparkling scatter cushions adding a cosy feel.

There was even an arrow that read "Anaya's Firstival" directing party-goers to the activities further across the grass.

A huge Teepee had been adorned with pastel balloons and pink blossom trees, with rugs, comfortable cushions, and dreamcatchers filling the space that allowed guests to relax and catch up with one another.




There was also a bright pink play area for the children, separated off with a white picket fence and full of soft play activities, a ball pit, a slide, and plenty of rocking horses.

Alesha posted a photo of her oldest daughter Azura, six, playing Hook The Duck at a fairground-themed section of the party, which was next to a large screen decorated with fairylights for an outdoor movie screening.

More arrows pointed out a children's picnic area, glitter bar, tin can alley, and even crepes – with plenty of other grub up for grabs.

Alesha shared a snap of her delicious plate of food that was available from one of the many vendors – with a traditional ice cream van offering sweet treats for the children.




Grind coffee and cocktails also set up a pretty pink stand, serving personalised cocktails for the adult guests.

Named after the family members, the alcoholic drinks up for grabs included Azuka's Main Stage, Azura's Pyramid, Alesha's Headliner, and Anayachella.

Espresso Martinis were also on offer for the grown-ups.



The birthday cake was predictably impressive, put on display among a series of balloons and streamers – as well as Anaya's name written out in holographic lettering.

The cake was comprised of four varied tiers – including one with a pink floral look, gold spikes, and marble.

Several cupcakes and pick 'n' mix sweets were also available.

Alesha captioned the social media post: "@azukaononye and I had so much fun creating our mini Firstival for Anaya with the help of our family and friends at @dazzleandfizz @grind & @cakescouturelondon 💖 💖💖Special day for a special buba! #firstival #birthday".

Anaya' birthday was on the 20th August, and it appears Alesha has only just got round to posting pics from the party last month rather than throwing the bash later.

The day after her daughter's big day, Alesha shared a photo of her and her little one posing beside the same cake that was on display at the party, with Alesha looking every inch the yummy mummy in a leopard print skirt and black top.

Anaya wore a white dress with gold spots and frill detailing for the occasion – with proud mum Alesha also posting a video of her little girl dancing at the time, admitting it was the first time Anaya had "stood up and danced".
