  • Sienna is TWO "Neigh Neigh Neigh"

    When I was planning my daughter's second birthday she was really into horses. I can still hear her beautiful baby voice say "neigh neigh neigh" around the house. I was also really pregnant and a few weeks away from giving birth to my second child as Sienna was about to turn two. As always, I plan parties months in advance and I started to set up a week in advance. I was determined to put together a balloon garland on our living room wall and I found a tutorial I followed which was super helpful. I had already curated a bunch pretty faux flowers for the party and for the balloon garland. I started to style the balloon garland a week in advance as well. Air filled balloons can last up to a week! By this time my son was born so every time he would nap I would get back to the balloon garland. I’m sure I have mentioned this before but something about DIY’ing relaxes me. I find it so satisfying. Though I was very sleepless in this beautiful new chapter of mine, I couldn’t help diving into all the “pretty” details of Sienna’s upcoming birthday. 

    I found Sienna's cookies, lollipops, fondant horseshoe topper, "Sienna is TWO" cake topper (I painted it myself) and horse candle holders on Etsy. The cookies and cakes pops all arrived safely and were all fresh and delicious. I was gifted all three of her cakes by the sweetest and talented Belladonna Sweets bakery. A local shop in the Los Angeles area who graciously delivered them to me. They worked closely with me to bring my design to fruition. To this day I work closely with them because they always over deliver and pay attention to the details I look for. The cakes were oh so good too!

    A big thanks to my friend and family photographer Melody Melikian for bringing every detail to life.
