Woodland Animal Themed 1st Birthday Party

Having a birthday in the middle of winter doesn’t mean you can’t throw a bash that is whole-heartedly Spring. In fact, we encourage it. The warmth, the soft, pastel colors and the bevy of gold animals all make for the dreamiest of woodland themed birthdays – perfect for little miss Emerson Belle. Have a look at the full party captured by Feather + Light right here in the gallery.

From Feather + Light … When a little girl turns 1 in the middle of winter, she deserves a dreamy and enchanting birthday party. Emerson’s birthday was full of warmth. Her woodland animal theme was perfect for this wide-eyed, sweet baby girl. There were so many sweet touches – from the feather sugar cookies to the gold animals. And it’s impossible to forget the sweet feather crown. Her mother, Cate, a very dear friend, pulled together so many elements to make this party memorable. I truly enjoyed capturing the beautiful details.
