Garden Fairy 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Garden Fairy 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

Lily’s garden fairy 1st birthday cake smash session was one of our favorites of 2017! Since this was a theme we had never attempted, I had to do some homework on pixies and fairies. Mom did a fantastic job on the fairy dress and wings so I knew I needed to come through with an amazing garden fairy set. We ended up finding the perfect backdrop at Intuition Backgrounds.

Next was to figure out what to do for a birthday cake! We can always count on the girls at French’s Cupcake Bakery to come through with something cute! The mushroom birthday cake came out perfect. Amazon came in handy for some enchanted forest mushrooms. The puffballs, rose petals, log cake stand, and wood were found in the studio, left over from the lumberjack themed set. Lily loved her birthday cake- but she’s a fairy, and fairy’s don’t like to get too messy!
