The year has flown by and my little girl is celebrating her first birthday already.
Alice in Wonderland photo-shoot
I returned to the photographer that took her newborn photos to have a cake smash and splash shoot to record the occasion. I decided to go with Alice in Wonderland.
I worked closely with the photographer and many of the props in the shoot are personal. The books are my mums, the teacups from my gran and grandma, the playing cards were my gran’s. The birdcage is mine, the yellow roses were from my children on mother’s day. The candles are my husband and I’s and the pocket watch belongs to my father in law. The photographer created the set and added everything else. I love the vintage timeless look.
I am in love with these photos and couldn’t be happier.
Mad Hatters Breakfast
We started her birthday with breakfast at a local cafe that we love. The cafe has an Alice in Wonderland theme.
Don’t Be Late, Tea and Cake
After breakfast, we had an open house for friends and family to drop by for a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Words cannot express how impressed I am with this cake. It was created by a friend of my husband who isn’t a professional cake decorator but should be! Look at those roses and all the little details. I was stunned!
A Very Happy Un-Birthday Picnic
My friend Chloe let us use her family’s beach hut at the weekend to meet up with some of Aria’s little baby friends for a birthday picnic on the beach.
It was the Saturday of high winds. It gave the party character. Chloe tried to set up for us and the wind took her slide, breaker and chairs for a trip down the promenade. When we arrived she had just got them back. We used the pram and chairs to keep the breaker up and decided to drink tea and brave the storm. My husband had to chase after a friend’s push chair.
Due to the battle with the weather, we didn’t get any pictures. But, we did have fun. We certainly did feel like mad batters.https://tenor.com/embed.js
