"Let Them Eat Cake" Themed 1st Birthday Party

Fenley's first birthday party was going to be the very first time she had ever tasted cake, so her mom thought a "Let them eat cake" Marie Antoinette inspired theme would be a fun choice for this special event. She planned out every detail and used lovely paper goods from Joosy Card Company, which set the tone for the decor. Guests had plenty of delicious and darling treats, including French macarons from Dream Cakes Bakery, adorable cookies that looked like French poodles, and a stunning cake by Iris Smith that matched the theme perfectly. Fenley was so cute in her Gap dress and she had a blast digging into that yummy cake! All of the images were captured by b. mo foto, and you can see more from this charming party in the full gallery.
