Cherry blossom first birthday party
Morning, mamas! If you follow along with us at 100 Layer Cake, you know that we’re celebrating cherry blossom season on both blogs today. Such a happy time! This Aussie fam, with mama Grace of Milk and Honey Cake Creative, loves to travel to Japan, so they decided to share their fave parts of Japanese culture with their bebe Noa (which is Japanese for “my love”) for her first birthday. Cue allll the cherry blossoms, in the photos by Kaitlin Maree Photography, below…
Mama grace of Milk and Honey Cake Creative is a talented cake designer, so naturally she was behind this Japanese-inspired beauty.
The setup included a custom made dessert display, inspired by angular Japanese design, a low laying table setting which is a play on the traditional chabudai; where Japanese families typically gather to eat meals on the floor, we also had a Japanese soda cart, cherry blossom trees, an inspired grazing table, paper cranes, Kimidolls, hanging parasols, and many other nods to Japanese culture and design.
Love the cherry blossoms below the display here!
Looks like baby Noa loves the blooms, too.
Just as pretty on the inside.
