Stacey Solomon has been trolled online after revealing Belle's birthday decorations.
The Loose Women panelist was busy preparing Pickle Cottage last weekend for her youngest child's first birthday party, and decided to share her decorating journey online.
Stacey-who is married to ex-EastEnders actor Joe Swash, 42- has learnt a few tips from presenting Sort Your Life Out and decided to make a giant make cupcake to celebrate Belle's big day.
Despite saving money making the DIY gift, the special occasion called for an expensive looking flower garland, which ended up riling up some of her followers.
One person commented: "My god that’s expensive to make I looked at the prices of flowers and you need quite a few."
Another added: "Looks amazing....effective and dreamy..however I think the cost of flowers would be quite high for a lot of people... x."
A third wrote: "Very expensive for the lay folk x."
Despite the negative fan reactions to her creations, the mother-of-five also made a gorgeous pink birthday cake for Belle, and still managed to enjoy the day with her family.
Taking to Instagram, Stacey showed off her final designs, writing: "🌷 Proud 🌷 I’ve finally finished Belle’s birthday decorations. I can’t wait for her to wake up to this full of love sensory display tomorrow 😂
"I can not believe it’s been a whole year already. 😭 We are ready to celebrate you baby girl. To the moon and stars and back again Belle 🌷"

Fans of Stacey were quick to defend her in the comments, writing: "As a stylist myself I have to say you have done fab ! X she will love it!
A second wrote: "Looks absolutely amazing❤️Happy 1st birthday beautiful Belle❤️xxx"
With a third adding: "Oh my days it’s absolutely beautiful 😍😍😍😍 so so pretty 💖💖💖"
This isn't the first time Stacey has been accused of 'flaunting her wealth', after she was criticised for bringing her whole family on a trip to Jamaica over the festive period.
After posting pictures of her time abroad, fans hit out at Stacey regarding how much the trip would cost.
One person commented: "I just wonder, when lots of people are struggling financially to even get through Christmas, whether this really needs to be shared. I think people forget that posting everything on social media is optional.
"Another wrote: "It’s a disgusting display of wealth while everyone in the country is struggling 🤢."
