Now that the post has gone live over at Better Homes & Gardens I can spill the beans on this super fun shoot! We had all the ingredients for a great party – six adorable kiddos, balloons, confetti, fun crafts, amazing treats, and ice cream served out of the most adorable pop up ice cream truck tent. Here are some of the images we got of this amazing shindig:

The party was styled by Melissa Johnson of Best Friends for Frosting fame and she outdid herself. We've been wanting to work together for a while now and I'm so glad we finally got to collaborate on a project.

These kids were so full of personality (and energy!) after all the sugar they ingested.

This party was so colorful and happy and the light was so pretty. I bet they're still finding bits of confetti around the house : )

The desserts by Sweet Cakes by Rebecca were all so beautiful – it almost seemed like a shame to eat them. Here is the lovely setup before the kids tore into them:

From crown making to cereal necklace crafts to cutting out custom ice cream cone wrappers, these kids had a ball.

To end the party, the kids went outside to have some ice cream. How cute is this ice cream truck tent?

It was so fun to be a part of this project. Check out the feature over at Better Homes & Gardens and Best Friends for Frosting for sources and more info!
