Zoe's big day-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Things have finally calmed down enough around here to post a few of the pictures from my niece's first birthday party! Party planning runs in the family and my sister did an amazing job planning this over-the-top party for Miss Zoe. From the anthropologie inspired custom invitations to the kid-friendly finger foods, this was absolutely one of the best parties I have ever been too!

Invitations by Lindsey



This sign welcomed and directed guests out to the pool area











inside the goodie bags were bubbles, sunscreen and flower seeds. Also, each family got a CD of Zoe's "rainy day music mix"

Thanks! The invites were hand made, the link is at the top of the post. She used a very talented calligrapher named Lindsey.

Hi Wendy, I love this theme. I am in the midst of planning my daughter's first bday. Do you know where she got the sun motif I see she used for decorations, centerpieces and the favor bags?

Suzell said...

Hi Wendy...these picture are just amazing! Well all of your pictures are. I just found this blog and I'm in love.

My Goddaughter is having a 'You are My Sunshine' themed birthday party this year too! I was wondering if you knew or could find out with your sister what the sun in the centerpieces was made out of as well as the sun on the wall behind the food table? Would love to try to recreate this! Your help would mean so much to me. Thanks and congrats on the great work!

Hi Wendy! Thank you so much for posting your gorgeous pictures! Zoe is precious and looks like one lucky girl to have such a lovely party. You and your sister are immensely talented. I was wondering if you knew where the sun centerpieces were obtained. I have searched the internet with no success. Thanks!!

MomOf2 said...

I was wondering where you got or how you made the CD covers. They are adorable! Great idea!!

Hannah said...

Hi there! Just wondering if you have any info on baby girl's dress. I would love something similar for my daughter's birthday. Thanks!

Tara said...

Hi Wendy,

Can you please tell me where I can find a similar sun banner? The one behind the food table. I love it. I am also interested in the sun centerpieces and gingham buntings. Do you make these? Please let me know! Thanks!!!
