Millie Mackintosh has given a glimpse inside the gorgeous pink-themed celebrations to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday.

The former Made in Chelsea star, 31, who shares adorable Sienna with husband Hugo Taylor, 34, revealed the beautiful decorations at their London home for their little girl.

Millie looked effortlessly chic in a tartan tiered maxi dress and her dark blonde locks in loose waves as she held Sienna on her hip for the family snap.

The one year old looked every inch the birthday girl in a pretty pink tutu dress with a bow in the same hue while Hugo opted for a pink shirt to match the theme as he stared lovingly at his daughter and wife.

Millie enlisted the help of Elari Events to turn her visions for Sienna’s milestone birthday into a reality.

The team created a gorgeous balloon arch in different shades of pink to fill one side of the room while a gorgeous floral display was weaved in to create a pretty country garden feel.

A huge pink board was decorated with the name “Sienna” in white flowing font while a miniature tepee looked fit for the birthday princess.

Millie also revealed the gorgeous two-tier cake for her daughter which was decorated in buttercream roses in different shades of pink with a sweet topper which read: “Sienna 1”.

The former E4 reality star looked gorgeous as she posed with a bottle of rosé in her garden which perfectly matched the birthday floral theme.

Millie recently transformed her garden into a spring oasis featuring a Moroccan-style rug and a huge pink flower wall to add a splash of colour to the space.

Captioning the collection of snaps to her 1.4million Instagram followers, she said: “Sienna’s 1st Birthday was such a special day I just had to share a few more photos! Thank you to everyone who made it so memorable.

“Decorations fit for a princess! Thank you @elari_events for creating this dream backdrop for Sienna’s first birthday.”

Millie appeared the proud mum as she pushed Sienna on her "first car" before cuddling her daughter in the cute little teepee.

It comes after Millie gave fans an insight into the “ups and downs” of her experience being a first-time mum to baby daughter Sienna.

Sharing a photo of her cuddling her daughter on Instagram, Millie told her 1.4 million followers: “It’s important to me to show you the ups and downs of my journey, not just the smiling photos and happy moments! So today I want to tell you why recently I have found motherhood more challenging.”

Millie went on to add: “Sienna is growing up so fast and changing so much each week and a new thing I have noticed about her is her mood, she can be SO moody. It’s as though she’s training me up for what’s to come, even though toddler tantrums seem like they are a long way off, she’s not even 1 yet!”

Then, the first time mum got real about her daughter’s mood swings.

She said: “I mentioned this change in her mood the other day on my stories and lots of you messaged me saying you were going through the same thing.

“So I thought I would share a few of the barriers I have come up against, in the hope some of them resonate with your experiences.

"She now fights me when I try to change her nappy, when I dress or undress her and she often kicks me quite hard, this usually comes with lots of shrieking and screaming and no amount of singing or trying to entertain her seem to help.”

Millie then went on to discuss meal times, adding: “Meal times were going really well but I am getting a lot of food refusal at the moment, when Hugo feeds her she is as good as gold and finishes her plate. It makes me think she is hungry and definitely acting up for me which isn’t ideal as he is now back at work full time!

“She has even started to get upset at bath time which she usually loves. I have been coaxing her in with new bath toys and lots of bubble bath, which she has found very entertaining, but it’s sad to see her not enjoying the things that felt so easy and fun before.”

Millie opened up about the “hardest part” of her job as a mother, saying: “I think one of the hardest parts of this chapter is when she acts like she wants me to hold her, grabbing onto my legs, but as soon as I pick her up she cries and whinges to get back down."
