They say it's your birthday...

We celebrated a birthday at our house last week and were extremely fortunate to get to use 3 fantastic local businesses who helped us celebrate!  I want to share everything they did for us with all of you!  We're so happy to be able to support LOCAL small businesses in the Lehigh Valley to celebrate this birthday and we recommend making an effort to do the same.  Please share, like or link to this post as much as you like!

We are so thankful to Trixie's Treats, Photography by Dana Lee and to Kiera from MotherBaby Naturals for helping to make this birthday one to remember!

This adorable shirt made by Kiera was custom done to match the color theme for the party.  It matched just right and was perfect for her celebration and for our pictures.  Our little one is tiny, so finding a birthday shirt to fit her was a struggle, so having Kiera make one was the perfect solution! Thank you Kiera

We had cakes made by the very lovely and talented Tracy Mathews of Trixie's Treats.  The large sheet cake she did for our guests was delicious and the little bit that was left over stayed really well in the fridge for about a week.   She was so kind to do a special smash cake to be used for our 1 year old photo shoot as well!  It was beautifully decorated with fondant polka dots and a number 1.

Finally we concluded our week of celebration with a birthday smash cake shoot! We used the beautiful flowers and scenery at the Allentown Rose Gardens for the shoot and WOW!! The flowers were blooming everywhere and there wasn't a bad background in sight.  It looked like a tropical oasis with all the rain we've gotten this month in the #lehighvalley.  Dana Miller of Photography by Dana Lee couldn't have been more energetic or easy to work with.  She is extremely talented and puts every ounce of energy into her work.  Her photos are clear, focused and always seem to POP!  She took our newborn photos as well so it seemed like the perfect end to her first year!  She specializes in newborn, baby, child and family photography and is centrally located in the Lehigh Valley.
