This is what Natalie said about planning the party- ”I’m sending you the latest table I styled for a little girl’s 1st birthday and Christening. My client approached me seeking something soft and delicate for her daughters christening. When I suggested Pinwheels, my client was hesitant at first as she pictured the really colourful pinwheels we come across in carnivals. I assured her that we can make these pinwheels soft and delicate. I love it when a client puts their faith in me, which is exactly what she did.
We chose pastels for the colour scheme with an emphasis on feminine pastel colours.
I made 4 pinwheels which sat towards the back of the table and bought the concept to life. I tried to incorporate as many pinwheels as possible though out the entire table. Desserts on the table included pinwheel cupcakes, pinwheel cookies, pinwheel cake pops, pinwheel marshmallows and candy in the chosen colour scheme.
Overall, the dessert table was so delicate and sweet, fit for any little princess.”

This modern RACE CAR + CHEVRON PRINT FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Morgan of Morgan Bayard Photography.
I love the tradition of the Korean Dol or Doljabi where the birthday girl or boy is presented with items like a football, stethoscope, string and microphone and whichever item the child picks up foretells what his future will hold! What a fun and interesting way to celebrate a first birthday! A few ideas that I like in this modern chevron print party are:
The silver sports car cake topper
The Marshmallow Pops dipped in blue candy melt
The raffle held for guests to predict which item the birthday child would choose during the Dol
This sweet angel theme is so versatile because not only is it gender neutral but it would be perfect for a baby shower or a christening as well! A few highlights to look for in this baptism celebration are:
The sweet fondant angel cake topper
The gorgeous assortment of floral arrangements
The chocolate angel lollipop favors and chocolate spoons

The family lives in a small town where everybody knows everyone, so they got a spa hotel owner to close the indoor pool area just for their celebration, given that it was during the low season. The location and view were incredible (and it was pretty isolated too, it was hard to drive the steep way there!) and inspired us for the color palette for the decoration. We decided to do something simple and sweet using turquoise, ocre and white, so we used the initials of the baby’s name, gave them some cute angel wings and a small crown and we had our visual identity! That inspired every beautiful dessert created by Isa Herzog of course, who presented us with the oh so pretty ruffled cake and cupcakes, winged tiny cupcakes, yummy cookies, fabric wrapped brownies, decorated truffles and the delicious gourmet brigadeiros. We complimented the dessert table using fresh flowers that reminded us of purity and innocence, coupled with lots of clear latex balloons. We had fun using the visual identity of the party on the metallic balloons and windows too!
I fell completely in love with this party’s location, the blue of the pool reflected on the ceiling and at night thousands of lights twinkled in the distance because we could see three cities or more from our location.”
