Matryoshka Doll Themed Birthday Party

When photographer Christina Olson‘s daughter Tatiana turned one, she knew a matryoshka doll theme would be perfect for her party. Tatiana is a Russian name, and her grandmother collects matryoshka dolls, which are Russian nesting dolls. This certainly isn’t a common theme, so it wasn’t easy to find everything the party needed. But thanks to Etsy and some handmade love, the party was full of adorable details. You can find the list of sources at the bottom of this post if you’d like to recreate this theme. The cake by Miss Sara’s Cakery was also adorably perfect! See all the photos in the full gallery.
