Picture Perfect

My dear friend Minmi, who is usually behind the camera at every birthday party, was the center of attention at this event, along with her baby Ashton, as Minmi's son celebrated his first birthday!
It truly was a picture perfect day and friends and family not only had Ashton's birthday to celebrate, but also Minmi's brand new studio space, where the party was held.
With Minmi and husband Tony obviously unavailable to take their own event pictures, we had Nick Yutaka Photographers and Tien Wang Photography do the honors.
** NOTE: CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE **
Our event theme was inspired by a decal of a cow and chicken overlooking a cow-egg, which is the background image behind Ashton's crib. Minmi loved the adorable images and wanted to develop the look of the event around them. I think we managed to accomplish that!
We needed a birthday cake to not be just a cake! Melody from Sweet & Saucy Shop used our cow-egg-chicken inspiration and created the most playful character cakes! I know Minmi secretly hoped to preserve these and keep them forever!
The decor was casual yet classy with crisp white cabana structures, long tables creating clean lines, and vibrant flowers by Enchanted Florist to accent.
A variety of entertainment was available from a live puppet show and petting zoo, along with a kids craft area so parents could enjoy some free time to eat! Considering the event was hosted by a photography family, it was only appropriate that there be a photo area for families and guests to take pictures together! And everyone enjoyed the tunes and MC-ing of DJ Jeff Holmes from Moonlight Mobile Music.
Melody came through again with not only delciious, but the most incredibly cute mini desserts. Look at the little cow and chick cake pops peeping out of the grass. And the adorable chick-cakes and rice krispy treats "tipped" in cow print! So many sweet edibles to enjoy!
What makes this all so picture perfect is our guest of honor, Mr. Ashton Kim. Happy Birthday Ashton and congratulations to the Kim family!
