Teepees, and Picnics, and Cake Smash…Oh My!

Ok y’all, I’m going to try and do a little backtracking…So, let’s talk about teepees, and picnics, and cake smash…oh my!  I know that I mentioned before that I love themes…you can see here in my previous post about teacher appreciation week…So, you can imagine that I get a little crazy when it comes to my kids birthday parties.  Only problem is that I usually can’t settle on one thing.  I end up combining several random things together to get just what I want!  So, when it came to planning my last baby’s 1st birthday party I really got a little spastic!  I knew I was doing something with teepees and arrows, because that’s been “his theme” since he was born.  His room his decorated around that and we used the same teepee that is in the pictures shown for all of his first year picture sessions.  At the same time, seeing how his birthday is only a few days away from the 4th of July, I really wanted to do some kind of picnic theme also.  Then there were colors…I love navy and mustard right now, so of course I had to throw in some sunflowers to bring in the yellow!  And how could you leave out foxes with some splashes of orange here and there!  Then there is the currently popular galvanized metal accessories that we must have…oh and antlers…and feathers, don’t forget the feathers!!!  I always have a hard time finding exactly what I want, so I really just make it up as I go!  My brain just goes all over the place and I know my time is limited before they want themes like…Garfield (and yes I’ve done that one too).  With that said I’m sharing a few pictures from his cake smash session.  I will try to post some from the party itself, but as I’ve mentioned before I’m not the best with picture quality and in usually cell phone fashion…my storage was full the day of his party.  So, I’ve had to rely on pictures from friends.  Am I the only one this happens too?  Never fails…if it’s something I really want pictures of, my phone decides that the storage is full (insert face that says “I think my phone is lying”).  So, I’m borrowing some of my photographers preview pictures.  She’s always so good to put up with me and my 5 million ideas!  Here is a link to my Pinterest inspiration, I just had to boy it up a little, haha!
