A sweet little elly who will warm your heart… his facial expression is priceless! Prepare to be smitten with this beautiful cake and all of the matching pretties. Let’s take a look at this charming Elephant Birthday Party, created by Althea Heussner of Bakermama for her daughter’s 1st birthday.
Althea of Bakermama shares the story behind this party:
“I’d been dreaming about throwing the most amazing birthday parties for my future children for years. I didn’t celebrate holidays and birthdays as a child, so I feel like I have years worth of missed parties and cakes to make up for. One of the reasons I ever took that very first cake decorating class was because some day I wanted to be ‘Super Mom’ and would need to know how to make epic birthday cakes. Therefor when it finally came time to celebrate my first child’s first birthday, I was ecstatic!”
More from Althea of Bakermama:
“The elephant theme was chosen because the meaning of her name (Ayla) and the symbolic meaning of the Elephant are both ‘strength’. That, she loves watching Dumbo, and I just think they’re the cutest things ever. I used the darling invitations I found from Swanky Press as my inspiration for the everything. Bownanas sewed her the sweetest skirt and onesie to match, and I continued the elephant / polka dot theme throughout the dessert table with cake pops, hand-made chocolate peanuts, cotton candy meringues, cupcakes and hand-cut elephant cookies. I made the banner and party favors using my Cricut machine.”
Seriously, could this cake get any cuter? The sweet elephant topper is conveying so much through his shy little eyes. Something along the lines of… “I love you… Happy Birthday… Please don’t eat me!”
From the invites to the cake, everything is simply precious! A big thanks to Thea of Bakermama for sharing this delightful Elephant Birthday Party with us today! What a wonderful celebration for your family and the birthday girl!
