Kate’s Sweet Shoppe Birthday Party

When Kate turned two, her mom, photographer Jackie Culmer, planned a beautiful New Year’s Eve luncheon with a sweet shoppe theme. Jackie brought in the feeling of a French confectionery for this little soirée. The famous Laduree macaron boxes inspired the pretty pastel color palette. Jackie created a lovely birthday poster for Kate in the Laduree green. Translated, it reads, “established 2011, Kate’s Confectionery, made with love”. Kate’s nursery has the same beautiful palette, so Jackie used the room’s curtains for a backdrop and then added the paper tissue decor to add whimsy. Gorgeous florals from Inviting Occasion matched the theme and inspiration perfectly.

The sweet treats included macaroons, cupcakes, mini cupcakes, and a variety of cookies and candies. The adult partygoers enjoyed rose champagne and mimosas, while the younger guests had raspberry smoothies. After the party was over, Kate also had an adorable little cake smash session!
