Late last year, Buding Aquino Dee (award-winning mom and advocate for breastfeeding) threw her daughter Arie the most gorgeous first birthday celebration EVER. :)
It was a French-American DIY Martha Stewart-esque celebration styled by the doting mommy herself.
(EDIT: Buding says that her stylist friends and staff also had a hand in this beautifully styled set-up!)
I got butterflies in my stomach when I viewed the excellently executed decor. Cara says that Buding collected a whole lot of fabric just for the event!
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here are photos of Arie's birthday stolen straight from the photographer's blog:
|Genius: Embellishing the center table with clothes and photos of Baby Arie in her first year.|
|With Dad Dudu, and brothers|
Tommy and Colby
|This come straight off a page from a Martha Stewart Living magazine!!! I loove it!|
|Bright idea: Put a message board (or tree, in this case) to give your baby when she is old enough to read encouraging words from friends and family|
|Macarons and pretty pastry that match the event make for a more exciting tea-time spread|

These photos are so inspiring! Makes me want to be a mommy already :D
