{reader style} A Winter Onederland First Birthday Party

Monday, March 2, 2015

It's been a cold and snowy winter wonderland here in Colorado these last few weeks, and I know that's true just about everywhere else as well! And since March is typically our snowiest month, I think we'll see more of the white stuff before we're through. That makes this the perfect time to share with you some gorgeous photos from a Winter Onederland first birthday party for an equally gorgeous one year old girl.

I first met Colleen when we co-hosted a baby shower for a mutual friend, and I immediately knew that she had impeccable taste! So I wasn't surprised at all to see that the party she recently hosted for her precious daughter, Amelia, was impeccable as well. Did I mention that Colleen is also a talented photographer? Check out these photos from the party, and you'll see just how talented...

Here's the beautiful birthday girl and her equally beautiful mama.

The food table was perfectly staged, with a furry coating of snow, glittery trees, and snowflakes falling from the chandelier.

The entire spread looks delicious, but my favorite part... definitely the "Baby Appetizers." What a seriously adorable idea!

How precious is that white cake with the glittery snow and giant snowflake on top?

The cake was, of course, for Amelia to devour, but the guests were treated to a wintery-perfect selection of mini-cupcakes, sugar cookies, and powdered donuts {yes, please!!}.

I am certain Amelia was thrilled with all of the gifts her friends and family showered upon her - but it's the snowflakes hanging from that adorable banner on the mantle that makes my heart happy!

And Amelia's guests were sent home with colorful tubes of bubbles to thank them for making her party so "bubbly and fun."

This Winter Onederland birthday party was truly fit for a princess, and Colleen's photographs perfectly captured every detail of this special day!

If you are looking for a fantastic photographer in Colorado, specializing in newborn, children, maternity, & family custom portraiture, Colleen is your lady! You can see more of her work and get in touch with her via her photography website, and you can always see her latest work on her blog.
