Feminine boho picnic 1st birthday
Morning, friends! We’ve got the sweetest boho first birthday shoot for you this morning, from mama and blogger Mary of Mary Rose Photography. Being in the midst of a move when Adeline’s first rolled around, she wanted to do something special to celebrate that *wasn’t* a stressful, elaborate party. Instead, Mary gathered up all of baby’s fave things from her first year and worked with a crew of small shops and local biz to create a bohemian playdate for A and her pals.
Mary says, Adeline’s first birthday was inspired by the hard work of her favorite shops. Nearly every item included in the party was designed or created by a small business. EDEN, the floral design company, covered the party with pink and white flowers and greenery. The owner Jordan had the idea for a balloon arch to add a touch of fun and whimsy. She hung gold hoops from a nearby tree to frame the swing and as a backdrop to the mats.
Boho mamas, you’re probably pretty thrilled to come across this stunning macrame baby swing, huh? They’re handcrafted by Adelisa & Co in Nicaragua and all look pretty darn gorgeous.
Brenda’s Pop Shop whipped up these floral cake pops. Aren’t they incredible?!
The #1 must for the party, was of course, lots of adorable cake photos. Check!
Totally into this bib by Billy Bibs, too. Girl’s got style!
Mary’s story… Before I gave birth to my daughter Adeline, I spent hours planning for her arrival. I researched the best stroller, the best crib mattress, and designed a beautiful nursery. It was my nesting process; I worked hard to find the very best I could to make sure my daughter arrived in a safe, loving, and beautiful environment. As I researched all day every day, I discovered something on Instagram previously unknown to me. It all started when I found a sweet watercolor floral swaddle on Pinterest that led me to an Etsy shop. I followed this shop on Instagram, and this shop led me to another shop, which led me to another shop, which led me to another shop. Suddenly I was following all these shops with sweet handmade and unique baby items made by other small business owners. I fell in love with these shop owners, many of them mothers, who were supporting their families by designing beautiful clothes, toys, bows, swaddles, and more for other babies.
Such a sweet way to celebrate little A *and* connect with some lovely people. Find their links below!
