The Theme - This is super important so that I can ensure I get all the items needed to create a beautiful set. When planning your baby's cake smash think about what YOU want it to be. This is the last time you're likely to have a choice in the matter of birthdays! Try and think outside the box and do something different. Themes can be ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! I suggest trying to steer away from characters like Mickey Mouse or other TV shows/movies if possible.
Also think about what your child likes to eat? If they LOVE a certain food we can replace the cake with that food and theme the smash for that. It does NOT have to be a cake smash to be fun and celebrate a birthday. This also works very well with babies who are picky eater/have texture issues, severe food allergies, or that do not like to get messy!
