This year my baby turned four. FOUR!!! How did that happen? I’m not ready for her to be four, or five… or anything other than my little baby. Of course, what started off as a little My Litte Pony Party quickly turned into an extravaganza thanks to my amazing friends at Styled by Belle, Sweet Empire Australia, Studio Cake, Macarahrah, Glistening Occasions and Dessert Menu Please. Seriously… this is my A-team and my kids parties would seriously be a sorry little affair if it weren’t for them. I love having our brainstorming nights where we start with a small idea dn they just snowball into… well… this!!! And the most amazing thing is that they make it happen! ooooh… instead of a normal table, let’s make it a round table so I can do a 360 degree virtual tour, I say. Sure thing Miss Styled By Belle says. And it happens! Oooohhhh.. let’s have cookies on a carousel sticks and Pony shaped cake pops I say. Sure thing, says Miss Sweet Empire Australia. And it happens.
But everything else… everything else is their incredible creativity taking shape. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I am lucky to have these ladies in my life. Not just for the beauty they create, but for their friendship and the joy they bring to me each time I photograph their work.
They have helped make my Food Photography dreams a reality. They have helped hone my Food Photography and Product Photography skills and they have made my life richer for their friendships.
So without further ado I present first, a virtual tour of Zoe’s My little Pony party, with photos to follow. I must also credit my brother, Itai Etzman for taking all the “people” pics while I was off playing hostess (and having little meltdowns about things not going my way… let’s face it, I’m apparently a party diva! Ha!).
