Are you looking for ideas for your baby’s first birthday party? After all, it’s a momentous day you’d want to remember. If you want to make your little one’s day even more fun, doing a cake smash photoshoot may be a great idea to consider. 

However, cake smash parties always get messy; for obvious reasons. Therefore, planning things in advance can help save a lot of hassle when the big day finally arrives. If you're planning a cake smash birthday party for your kid, here are a few things you should keep in mind. 


Get a Smaller Cake (and another big one for the guests) 

The purpose of the cake is literally to be smashed. Therefore, getting an elaborate cake with multiple tiers doesn't make sense. Instead, opt for a smaller cake with a simple design. These still look great in pictures as the focus is meant to be on the baby anyway. Of course, you need to serve cake to your guests. So order a bigger cake for this purpose. 

Plan The Area

Picking a suitable space for the cake smash is necessary as things will get messy. You don’t want your baby to ruin your white couch, do you? Pick a clutter-free corner in the house that can be cleaned up easily. The kitchen or a playroom can be the ideal place for this purpose.

Book A Professional Photographer

You may think you don’t need a professional photographer as you already have smartphones and cameras to capture the event, but that’s not the best way to go about it. A professional photographer has more experience and knows exactly how to capture the best cake smash photos. Additionally, you’ll be able to enjoy the party better since there is one less thing to worry about.
