Cristalle Belo and Justin Pitt's unico hijo turned one over the weekend with an intimate lunch party held at a villa in Bali, Indonesia. Their family was in this beautiful island to attend the wedding of Cristalle's brother, filmmaker Quark Henares, to singer Bianca Yuzon. With all of them gathered and reunited there, it was a great idea to do a double celebration; Hunter's parents decided to hold his first birthday party a day after the #QBcome1 wedding festivities. There to celebrate with Cristalle and Justin were Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho, Atom Henares and wife Nathalie, Scarlet Snow, and of course, newlyweds Quark and Bianca.

I’m so happy both our parents @victoria_belo and @atomhenares were able to give such sweet speeches that gave everyone a glimpse into what an amazing person my brother @quarkhenares is ?? #QBcome1 PS. Don’t our parents look like older siblings to us kids? Thanks to @belobeauty ??
The birthday celebration was simple yet festive, thanks to the DIY skills of mommy Cristalle. "It was just a small lunch at the villa. I brought some decorations from Manila to make it a little more festive," she said on Instagram. An intricate wooden wall accent was decorated with colorful paper fans and metallic balloons that spelled out "one"—this made for an interesting and visually rich backdrop for all the family photos they took that day. A round table was also set up and styled with vibrant pom pom accents; Hunter, in his cute blue onesie and bib that says "12 months," later sat on the table with his chocolate cake for the traditional first birthday cake smash. Since Hunter can't blow the candle on his cake yet, Scarlet helped him out, and they both looked so adorable.

Revealing more details of the party, Cristalle shared, "We had pasta, pizza and super yummy crispy duck (famous in Bali) and exchanged stories about what happened the night before. So happy the newlyweds were able to wake up (after a night of partying) for this little celebration."
In a previous interview with Metro.Style, Cristalle said that the best lesson she and Justin want to teach Hunter is independence. "As young as he is now, we've already trained him to sleep in his own room on his own. We don't want to be hovering, helicopter parents. We want him to be able to stand on his own two feet," she shared.
Happy first birthday, Hunter James!
