Cowgirl 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Willa’s Cowgirl 1st Birthday Cake Smash

We can always count on this awesome family for the cutest themes! The Cowgirl 1st Birthday theme is sure to be a favorite on Pinterest. We keep saying we should hire her for set design but she’s got her hands full these days 🙂 We loved big brother and sister jumping in to help out with the cake.

Set #2: Giant Birthday Party Balloons

One thing we learned the hard way is there is a helium shortage in SoCal right now! We had to go all over town to find enough helium for these balloons! This set was awesome. I think we will eventually turn it into a custom backdrop 😉
