Hello everyone! Today I am really excited to share just another amazing way to use the brand new Heidi Swapp Celebration In Lights kits that are now available at Michaels. I hope you have had a chance to see them on your store shelves, because they are pretty awesome. They also make decorating for your next special occasion SO easy. These kits have everything you need!
As I was looking at the Celebration In Lights Party Kit I had an idea come to me. This kit would be PERFECT for a birthday cake smash photo session! My nephew Ronan just celebrated his first birthday a few days ago, so the timing could not have been better. Cake smash sessions are all the rage these days and adding in props to these sessions just adds so much more personality to the photos. So today I am going to share what we did to create a super fun festive 1st birthday cake smash Celebration In Lights photo shoot!
The Celebration In Lights Party Kit comes with a fabulous DIY banner entitled “Celebrate”.
It is super easy to assemble. Simply add on the chipboard letters, glitter edging and attach to the string (there are also wonderful instructions that come with the kit in the box). Banners are always fabulous photo props.
I even took it one step further and incorporated my own DIY Tassel Banner I had created for my son’s own first birthday. I simply layered them on top of each other. So fun! Both of these banners are awesome because they can be reused over and over.
Next, I hung these fabulous star lanterns that come in silver, black and white. You literally pull a string and they transform into gorgeous shimmery metallic stars. I LOVE these for home decor….but they ROCK as photo props. THE BEST.
I love how they look layered against the banners.
The Marquee Love Star is also such a perfect photo prop. It’s bold, sparkly and comes with EVERYTHING you need to create a gorgeous marquee star.
Not only does it look so perfect in photos, but it is also a great addition to a cupcake platter!
A cake smash wouldn’t be a “cake smash” without a little extra signage. Naturally the Lightbox was the perfect answer.
I love mixing fonts and phrases in my Lightbox. It just adds so much more character and personality!
Pull it all together and you have yourself the perfect decor photo props for a first birthday celebration! Let’s DO this!
Happiest birthday sweet Ronan! Auntie loves you! XOXO
