Sophia's Shellabration

Updated: Sep 15, 2021

Dreaming up and planning Sophia’s first birthday brought me such joy. Seeing her face light up as she saw her colorful balloons, opened gifts and giggle with loved ones filled my heart.

Sophia may not remember the details of the day, but I know she will remember being surrounded by love. Every selection for her first birthday was filled with love and the joy she brings to our lives.

Ever since I was a child, I've had a love of the ocean, shells and of course, mermaids. Sophia seems to be following in my footsteps so an under the sea shellabration felt like the perfect theme for my summer baby.

Balloons by the Bunch brought my under the sea vision to life! Delana was a joy to work with. I sent her my inspiration board along with a few ideas. If you're in the Tampa Bay area, I highly recommend them for your next event.

I've received a lot of questions about Sophia's cupcakes and cake. The beautiful cupcakes were compliments of my sweet mom. I love how the crumbs represented sand on the beach. And yes, the shells on top were edible and delicious (a mixture of white and milk chocolate). As for the cake, I decorated it myself, but I ordered the fondants from Etsy.

Most of the decorations are linked below.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
