The Birthday Girl!
Mazie’s 1st year flew by in a flash, so we decided that a photo shoot themed party was the perfect way to celebrate the occasion.
The cake was perfection, thanks to Rick’s Bakery. They took the time to work with us on every detail to make sure that it was exactly what we wanted. If you have ever had a Rick’s cake (who hasn’t?) then you already know it was delicious!
The cake stand skirt was a custom design for the party, and this high chair was old and nasty before we busted out our secret weapon (spray paint, of course). We added a little wire mesh ribbon, and voila! Beautiful.
Each guest took home a picture frame with a custom printed message that said “Thank you for making my 1st birthday picture perfect!”, a handmade fabric flower hair clip, and a s’mores goody bag.
We had a table of photo props along with a gray and white Chevron backdrop for the guests to have their picture made. This is great for any age. The kids and adults both enjoyed posing for the camera.
The party was a huge success because after it was all over, my sweet little one year old gave me an impromptu kiss and hug. If I could have caught that on camera, it would have truly been picture perfect!
We were also thrilled that NYC party planner extraordinaire, Amy Atlas, featured our party on her blog. Check it out….http://blog.amyatlas.com/2011/10/picture-perfect-guest-dessert-feature/.
