Lakers Basketball Cake Smash | Hartford, CT
He shoots…he scores! What an adorable theme that Mom decided to go with for this one years old’s first birthday celebration! After talking on the phone about different options, she settled right away on a Lakers basketball cake smash – something that friends had suggested especially because this little guy LOVES playing with any type of ball! So I put my thinking cap on and came up with this cute set perfect for a budding future basketball player! Our balloon garlands are a great way to incorporate color, and in this case it was great to highlight the Lakers colors while not making the background too busy for everything else I was putting together for him. He went to work right away showing me all of his moves and skill with putting the ball in the hoop! We had a lot of fun and he didn’t want to stop playing! But we knew it was time for cake, and at first all was good! But this sweetie didn’t quite like getting messy – sometimes that happens! And eating wasn’t on top of the list either – I guess we just wanted to play! So that’s what we did. Even bringing in some balloon help to extend things along and then we went right to bath time instead! This is a perfect example of why we split the session into multiple parts. Sometimes, kiddos don’t do as well with certain aspects than another. So this not only keeps them interested, but allows me to still deliver a beautiful gallery to families even when we’re not as much of a fan of the cake. Bath time was a HIT! Lots of splashing, duck play, and smiles! We saved the day, and I can’t wait to see all of his beautiful choices in an heirloom album for his family to enjoy over and over again! Check out some of the many favorites chosen below!
