    That is a cool idea!  I will just take pictures of her at her birthday party.  I really doubt that she will even smash the cake, the girl does not like it when she had oatmeal on her hands, she wants me to wipe it off immediately!  I think your outfit sounds adorable! :)

  • We just booked out cake smash and mini shoot too. Haven't really decided on an outfit for DS yet buy yours sounds cute.
  • We booked our cake smash too and are so excited! I can't believe they are going to be one already!! I think for the cake smash part of the photo session, they will both be in some kind of diaper covers (color/theme to match the theme from the birthday party), and DD will wear pearls and a headband, DS will wear a tie... So much to think about-- I get so excited over this stuff.
  • We are still working out the date for the cake smash but i got onesies with a 1 and their name embroidered off etsy and maybe a pair of jeans. I should have them try getting dirty to make sure this isn't a waste.

  • How fun! I need to book a date. With our photographer still. Stinking st paddys and easter are messing everything up! I need both of those dates to hurry up and pass so I can concentrate on the big 1 party. No idea for outfit, boys are hard! I've exhausted the tie look and vest and sweater, not sure what's left.

    I am thinking of having P wear something similar to this too.  I might just make my own smash cake.

     

    Where have you ladies ordered your smash cakes from?  A normally bakery?

  • We are doing a cake smash at her birthday. I'm going to make cupcakes for everyone and then one small cake just for LO. (Probably a 3" on top of a 6" fake teir...just to make it look fancy lol) so I'll have pictures and hopefully video of that.

    I want to get family pictures done around her one year but it might end up being after. I'm super sad because there are about 3 pictures of LO and I together TOTAL and two are selfies I took (lame) and one is a picture I asked DH to take and it is SO FREAKING BLURRY because he refused to use the actual camera like a normal human and insisted on taking the picture with his cell. SO, I am forcing him to do family shots so that there is some evidence that I existed.

    Sorry that this apparently turned into a rant but I was looking at pictures yesterday and am so sad that there are no pictures of LO and I together that it makes me cry. :(

  • a "fake tier". that is such a good idea. Make it look fancier without having allthat cake go to waste. I think i'll try that too.

    I'm just going to make my own cake. I actually bought the giant cupcake pan a few years ago for my first DD.

  • I just did my LO"S cake smash myself a couple days ago. I ordered a backdrop and floordrop off mardel.com and then added a baseboard to it. We "made" our backdrop holder out of a clothing rack and PVC pipe. LOL. I also made a pennant banner with pink scrapbook paper and hung it on the backdrop. It looked really cute!

    My DD wore a pink tutu and hairband and that's it. I made her another tutu myself in pink, purple, and blue and a matching tulle headband for her party. I didn't want to use it for her cake smash in case it got ruined since her party will be in May. I bought a "my first birthday" onesie at walmart to go with her b-day outfit! pics came out soooooooo cute! I also made her cupcake cake for her cake smash.
