One of the best parts of special event photography is experiencing all the creative ideas of these party organizers! From an "Under the Sea" theme to a "Construction" theme, I get to see all these Pinterest DIY projects come to life. This past weekend one of my favorite little ladies turned ONE! For her one year old celebration, her mother, Tiffany, picked an adorable theme - a Garden Party. I couldn't imagine a cuter theme for Miss Norah!
The room was decorated in the style of Mr. McGregor's garden which also included a variety of vegetables in green pint containers, miniature pumpkins and gourds, a garden fence, and plenty of pictures of Peter Rabbit. Tiffany and Rob provided a delicious menu for the party that included homemade meatballs, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, vegetable tray, and a variety of salads (My favorite being the broccoli salad!). Needless to say we were all stuffed from all the delicious spread!
No longer the sleeping beauty that I met last October, Miss Norah was ready to mingle with all her family and friends! This lucky birthday girl had all her favorite people to help celebrate her first birthday, including all her grandparents, aunt, cousins, and even the doula who helped bring her into this world. There was certainly a lot of love for Miss Norah in the room.
The part that I enjoy most during these parties is the smashing of the cake! Up until this point Norah had only had a small taste of the sweet deliciousness of cake. This would be the first day when she would be able to dive into her very own cupcake! She was either going to really love it or really hate. After seeing frosting flying onto the walls and smeared all over her face, I'm going to take a wild guess that she loved it!
Watching these little ones grow up from being wee little babies to walking and talking humans is such a privilege! Thanks to Tiffany and Rob for inviting me to the party and to be a part of their little girl's life. Happy birthday, Norah!! Scroll through to see additional pics from this festive day in the garden!
