When you chooose to book a Cake Smash Photoshoot for your baby’s first Birthday, you are making the decision to preserve memories and to create images that you will love forever! 

Part of the fun in the build-up is to decide what colours or theme you want for your cake smash. 

Here are some I have loved recently – which is your favourite? Or do you have some great ideas for something totally unique?!

1. Traditional – Pink or Blue!

Pink for a girl, and blue for a boy! These have always been popular and I’m certain they always will be! Some families choose these colours because they match their decor in their house, and are planning to print a big portrait to celebrate their little one’s birthday. Some love to match their cake smash to their blanket colour choice from their newborn session! Whatever your reason, if you decide to go with blue or pink, I’ll love to create your cake smash setup.

2. Smash your way into space?!

Like this little superstar, you could have a space themed cake smash. It’s not just for boys! Girls can go into space too, and they can have fun cake smashes in a space theme as well!

The deep purples, blues and blacks give the feel of being in deep space, and your little one can dress up in an astronaut costume to complete the look!

3. Shine Bright Little Sunflower!

This setup is particularly popular in the springtime, but it looks great all year round!

Buzzy bees and flowers and bright yellow hues make for a light, bright and cheerful theme for your little sunflower. 

You could choose either a pretty tutu to compliment the theme, or even a bee costume for a bit more fun! 

4. Natural Greens and Browns

These natural colours really lend themselves to a number of different themes and can be easily adapted to fit what you love. 

Jungle? Dinosaurs? Farmyard or tractors? Woodland creatures? Greens and browns work brilliantly for any of these! I have a wide variety of props that i can mix in with these colours to make your little one’s interests really POP!

5. Everybody loves a rainbow!

Whether you have a rainbow baby, or just love the bright cheerful colours, a rainbow theme is a hit with everyone! 

I have lots of rainbow props to match a rainbow cake and backdrop – it’s one of my favourites!

6. Something different…!

I love being creative with my cake smashes! So if there isn’t something here that grabs you, then let’s come up with a theme that suits you perfectly!

Whether it’s a character that your little one loves, or a colour to match your home, or something that means something to your family. Let’s come up with something that’s perfect for you!
