Happy Elodie turns one // pasadena birthday party

This next birthday party is a colorful array of tassels, water color, tie dye, and hearts. Its one of my favorites! I love love colors… so I love the way this turned out! My super talented friend over at Papermade Design did an amazing job designing and putting this together for cute little Elodie! I really love photographing Elodie because she’s so fascinating to watch. She’s mellow, quiet, and very observant to small details. The way she stares back at my camera sometimes is just so interesting and cute. Like she’s trying to understand and figure out this new world around her. So sweet… so soft and ready to smile.

This birthday is a joy for my eyes to see… a mixture of heartfelt love, joy, and excitement from a mama who works so hard to execute everything with precision and care… all for her little girl… and Elodie will look back and see all the love that was put into her 1st birthday! And she will smile :)

Elaine (Papermade Design) had a vision for this cute little party… and she did so much of the hard work. DIY All the decor and paper goods were by Ms. Papermade Design and these awesome people:

ellie’s 1st birthday celebration // pasadena

This lovely birthday features some awesome decor and one of the cutest lil one year olds. Ellie! She is adorable and sweet and loves holding her macarons :) This event was so much fun to photograph and a delight to see all the beautiful girlie accents and colors. Some absolute awesome vendors helped make this event a success! Picture Perfect Events did such a great job putting this together! And, Fleuretica rocked it with the custom handmade flower design for the “one” dessert backdrop, and the amazing floral arrangements on the tables. I was so excited when I found out I could take one of those beauties home with me! Don’t even get me started on the yummy dessert table and ice cream cart! Mmm.. I’m still thinking about my popsicle. If that wasn’t enough to entice your fun sensors, the bubble show was pretty neat to see!! I actually kinda wished I could be those children who got to have fun with the hoolahoop bubble! Fitting that the party favors were pretty little bottles of bubbles. For Ellie’s Traditional Korean Dol, scroll down to find out which object she chose! These are some of my favorite images. I really hope you enjoy them!

Event Planner + Design/Party Favors/Craft: Picture Perfect Events //  Florals, Decor, + Design: Fleuretica // Invites: Kelli Murray // Entertainment: Bubble Mania // Ice Cream Cart: Quenelle Spoon // Venue: Saladang Song

erin’s first birthday celebration // pasadena

This is one of the cutest birthday celebrations! It was a red balloon theme with a pretty pink touch to it. Grace did an absolutely amazing job with all the decorations and you can tell so much hard work and love was put into this lovely birthday for her daughter! It was so interesting to see the personalized tattoos for all the kiddies to accesorize, but I also spotted some adults taking advantage of the opportunity as well haha.

This dessert station was… pretty phenomenal too!! It was Erin’s first birthday and she definitely seems to have enjoyed that yummy smash cake. She didn’t want to let it go :) Not only does this little girl have one of the coolest names, but she knows how to enjoy sweets just like me too. Mmm! And who could forget that balloon guy! He made some of the neatest creations I’ve seen with balloons. He even had the adults wanting to get in on the fun! I secretly wanted one of my own. This traditional Korean 1st birthday wasn’t complete without Erin getting to dress up in that cute dress of hers. Check out these images to see which item she chose! I would be lying if I said I didn’t have my heart set on her choosing the camera ;-)  Enjoy some of my faves from the day…and  try not to have a sudden urge to eat a macaron <3

These photos are SO AWESOME! I love them, esp the B&W ones! Thanks Erin!
