A Whimsical, Girly, and Oh So Sweet Cake Smash Session!
Whether you are planning a cake smash session for a boy or a girl, the possibilities to create some unique are endless. And this hot air balloon cake smash was no exception! When I spoke to Adelina’s mommy about what she wanted for her cake smash session, she said fluffy clouds and sweet little hot air balloons. She showed me the beautiful little tutu dress that she had picked out for her daughter to wear, and we took some time to look though photos on Pinterest together. I love to work closely with parents to help execute their vision.
Hot Air Balloon Cake Smash Props
To bring this cake smash to life, I started with my Savage Seamless background paper in the color Bone. Then I got some supplies and got crafty! I constructed the hot air balloons using 12×12 scrapbook paper cut into oval shapes and carefully assembling and gluing them together. I also followed this DIY Cloud Tutorial to construct some clouds to attach to the backdrop. Once the clouds were set, I used a backdrop stand and clear wire to hang the balloons in front of the clouds.
Girly Cake Smash Photos
I must admit that I loved working on this hot air balloon cake smash session! It was a girly cake smash with a unique twist. The result was whimsical and oh so sweet. The birthday girl wore a pink tutu dress and some darling little rose gold shoes with matching headband. Her mommy, daddy and even grandma came to the photo session. I could tell this family had an incredible bond; they all sang and clapped and cheered her on. She seemed to really enjoy herself as she smiled at the camera and enjoyed her cake. She sure is one lucky little lady.
