Vintage 41 aged to perfection. Looking for birthday photoshoot ideas? Then you’ve come to the right place. We celebrated the big 41 with a birthday dinner at Parker’s at the Thompson Hotel in Central Park and a dreamy blue birthday photoshoot. We recommend a a color palette, balloons, cake, champagne and a birthday dress. With our tips, you can DIY a fabulous birthday photoshoot at home. We are excited to share our birthday photoshoot ideas with you.
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Color Palette
Blue peas in a pod. We selected a turquoise, royal blue, baby blue and white color palette. Let’s just say it was a dream come blue. This reminded us of our blue birthday party for our 32nd birthday on Kanchana’s rooftop. Our party styling and photography have come a long way since those early color theme parties!
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Balloons
That is too good to be blue. We used our Air Pump to fill Happy Birthday Balloons and Mixed Blue and Confetti Balloons. We also scatted Blue and White Confetti on the table. Pro-tip- movement is a great way to add some flair to a photo. We recommend asking a few friends to toss some balloons in the air for some floating shoots.
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Champagne
Smile, there’s bubbly. We kicked off our birthday festivities with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte. We served the champagne in flutes.
The champagne also paired nicely with our Berry Chantilly cake.
We also had an oops, I did it again moment with the champagne.
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Cake
You can’t celebrate a birthday without a birthday cake. We’ve baked cakes from scratch in the past but for this shoot, we picked up a Berry Chantilly Cake from Whole Foods and added 4 and 1 candles from Amazon. You don’t need to break the bank for a cake (though we have done that for larger parties too). Whole Foods has a variety of cake sizes to choose from. Mother Mousse is our favorite bakery, and we have ordered cakes from here for our 30th birthday, Shruthi’s 40th Masquerade Ball, Dad’s 70th Bollywood Disco party, Dylan’s Nerf Party, other birthdays, holidays, theme parties and more.
We also had a little fun with the candles.
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Port
We finished the night with a glass of Port that was aged over 40 years, just like us!
Birthday Photoshoot Ideas: Party Dresses
Thrives in sundress season. It isn’t a party without some summer dresses. We wore [ ] and Summersalt dresses Our outfits matched the decorations perfectly. If you are looking for a Summersalt discount code, then use the code TWINS for a $10 gift towards the purchase of $95 or more.
