I just have one word for you – DONUTS! I don’t think I have ever met one person who didn’t like at least one type of donut. When my childhood best friend from Washington emailed me to tell me that they were thinking of visiting our neck of the woods I jumped at the chance to do any photos of her little toddler Momo. (Momo is 3 months younger than my little Sadie and those two are thick as thieves, ha ha!) Luckily it was only a couple weeks before her first birthday so the timing was PERFECT. Jackie and I decided that cake was too mainstream for this awesome kiddo, so we brainstormed an alternative. At home they have their favorite local bakery that they nosh from on a regular basis, so why not a donut smash?
I got to work with and collaborate with my own awesome, local bakery – Donut Parlor. The staff is so incredibly kind and were very open to my ideas on styling our custom order, oh, and did I mention these donuts are DELICIOUS?! If you go in early enough you can get some with your favorite childhood cereal on the top. Must stop talking about it or else I’m going to keep drooling 😉
Momo was born in May and in Seattle, so the rain theme of “April showers bring May flowers” seemed appropriate, don’t you think? Though in Seattle, it’s more like April showers just never stop and everything comes anyway, LOL!
The simple addition of some flowers really makes even the colors of the donuts pop!
Are you getting hungry yet?
Do-nut mess with a girl and her baked goods! 😉
Excuse me…are these gluten free?
Good until the very last crumb!
Oh Momo – I’d be sad if all my donuts were gone too!
The sweet destruction that a toddler leaves in my studio is one of my favorite parts of these birthday celebrations.
You thought it was cute when the toddler cries because their donut smash is over? You ain’t seen nothing yet! It’s BUBBLE BATH time!
If you’d like to see some other tots celebrating their milestones please head on over to my Birthday gallery.
