To start your Monday Morning off, here is an adorable DIY First Birthday Party photographed by Cassandra Elridge Photography. There were so many great, inspiring images from this party, it is going to be split up into two posts. This one is the first one with all the great, but very achievable details. From a homemade cupcake bar and the chocolate dipped pretzels to the lemonade table and the darling ‘Avery’ banner. On Wednesday, the second post will be up with plenty of heart-warming portraits of Avery, her parents, and some of her little friends.
I love the idea of personalizing the Hershey’s kisses, so clever!
Here’s what Cassandra had to say about the celebration;
It was one of days where nothing could have taken the smile from my face. From the moment that I arrived at Lisa & Cal’s home in St. Charles for Avery’s birthday party, I knew this was one of those shoots that was going to remind me over and over again, that I am so blessed for this to be my career. Lisa created the perfect bird-theme for her sweet little girl, and she didn’t miss a single mark. From personalized cupcakes, to homemade polka-dot chocolate covered pretzel rods, and so many special things in between, the details of this event were a photographer’s dream. But even better then all of those delicious details? The birthday girl, Avery, was painfully adorable in her pink tutu ;)
Thank you again Cassandra for sending this birthday party our way! We can’t wait to share the rest of the photos with you all on Wednesday.
What was your favorite detail from the party? If I had to pick one, I’d say the personalized kisses idea. It seems like a simple way to really up the cute and personalized factor at any sort of celebration party. Love it!
See you Wednesday,
