Crew’s Ombre Surf 1st Birthday Party

To start off the New Year right I thought I would blog one of my favorite kid’s parties yet!  My sweet friend and photographer Ashley Rose’s little boy, Crew, turned 1 this year and I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing party!  Ashley is a super mom and basically did all of the design, decorating, projects, etc for the whole day!



Some of my best girlfriends Elizabeth and Karrie from Posh Paperie created the fabulous invitations and the Wedding Chicks made these adorable printed bags!





How cute is this cereal and breakfast bar…






Chocolate milk shot glasses anyone :)



For Crew’s birthday desserts we went with the ombre blue color scheme and added some surf themed touches to the desserts.


I love this new ombre buttercream technique that we have been doing at the shop and thought it would be perfect for Crew’s cake…it’s modern, clean, and bold.  We added a fondant surfboard and some gold fish to the bottom of the cake and voila! Ashley also rented this fab table from Found Vintage Rentals!


We created some ombre blue cake lollipops and added mini shark fins to the tops of them.  For the bottom of the dish I thought it would be fun put the gold fish again.


We then did some mini cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta shot glasses tinted blue, and chocolate dipped ombre rice crispy treats!


Here is the cutie digging into his cake….love these photos!



Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and Happy New Year!
