In this case, I’m going to say yes, it’s better late than never! Because look how cute my little girl was on her first birthday?!!! A year later, and I’m still swooning over her cuteness. Also, crying over how big she’s gotten, but that’s another story entirely.
I had the best time designing and photographing this for her. I’m not big on planning elaborate birthday parties. More of a cake and cook out in the backyard type of mom. Which is exactly what we did for her. No decorations, except this. I had this set up inside so we could bring her back in for, what in my opinion is, the cutest cake smash ever.
It all started with that little outfit. I found it online (probably through an Instagram ad if I’m being honest), then found a headband to match, which then inspired the backdrop (which I made!), and then she had to have the adorable little naked cake from my favorite Raleigh bakery! One thing led to another, and it all came together like this, and now I have a whole new respect for my florist friends.
So excited to share these and hope my sweet little peanut puts a smile on your face.
