Woodland Party Details:
This is what Amy said about planning the party- “I’m a lover of all things crafty and home made, so of course for my daughters first birthday was the perfect excuse to break out the scissors, glue gun, cookie cutters and other DIY essentials. Preparations for the party included felt animal masks for the big siblings, a 3D owl cake made from stainless steel bowls, fox cookies made from star shaped cookie cutters, a “pinecone” cheeseball, chocolate acorns, rolled paper invitations, a miniature sandwich bunting, owl and toadstool cupcakes, a branch and leaf mobile, and a table bunting. All of the crafts were super easy and I enlisted the help of my 3 year old in making all of the items for his little sister’s celebration about a week in advance. The base of the 3D cake design could be applied to any number of cakes–a princess cake, a monster, pretty much any animal, the list goes on and on!
To give the table a “woodland feel” I used a plaid picnic style blanket folded as a table runner and adorned the table with some red berry branches I snipped from a tree just outside of my apartment. Freshly squeezed apple juice in a milk crate, and quartered finger sandwiches served on wooden tray added to the rustic feel of the event.
One of my crafty friends knitted a reindeer hat for the occasion so I also incorporated that into the shoot for a mini cake smash. For the cake smash I created a beautiful buttercream rose cake using frosting from a can and I managed to find some fox tights to complete her look for the big day”!
