I have another gorgeous and pink, little girl’s party to share with you today. This is the first birthday party of little Emerie (Emerson Marie) captured by her very talented Mom Amy Gaerthofner of Ardent Photo. Not only is Amy a very talented photographer she also pulled together this whole ‘Sweet-as-Pie’ party theme herself which just looks so super-delicious.
Amy shared with me the details behind the day:
“Emerie has just turned one and is the little sister of Drew who is 4.5 years old. Emerie is very special not only because she is our baby girl but she has had a few minor health issues in her 12 months on earth. We are happy that she is now 1 and her surgery and daily medications are behind us. She started walking shortly before her birthday and loves to play with her brother.
Emerie was born on “Pi Day – you know the number 3.14″ and I thought about the theme since she was about 1 month old. So I started to think ‘sweet as pie’ for colors and food.
I made the pie pops with pre-rolled pie dough, canned pie filling and the help of my 4 year old. It was really easy and I had a lot of fun making them.
I enjoyed putting the design together and coordinating the food and decor. I’m really happy with how the custom cake turned out. It was very difficult for me to find images of a cake that resembled a pie on the internet. So I literally had to think of the design and describe how I wanted it to look to the cake maker.
Tips and tricks
Gather all of the things for the party over time. Don’t expect to get everything in one place. Draw a sketch of how you envision the table scape. Have realistic goals… don’t think that you will be able to do everything. Ask for help!
Thanks so much to Amy for sharing her daughter’s birthday with us, it is truly gorgeous and don’t you agree that she is just the cutest little girl ever with the cutest ever party?.
