Nov26 Notting Hill Baby Shower 2014

Mum-to-be and Fashionista Fallon was celebrated with the most perfectly pinktastic baby shower in Notting Hill.  The ladies enjoyed Prosecco and Canapés and were joined by the men a bit later for some wonderful Italian food while be serenaded with live Italian music. It seems like it was quite the event.

Nov24 Dreamy Sip N’ See 2014

Lotta of Mint Design sent me her recent sip n’ see that is sooo fabulously creative and colorful I knew you would die to see it.  Details below – xoxo
GreyLikesBaby MintDesign0011 Dreamy Sip N See

“What is a Sip N’ See exactly? Let us share with you! While already popular in the south, the Sip N’ See is an up and coming trend for West Coast Moms looking for an alternative to a traditional shower. Perfect for Mom’s who may be on their second or third child or for Mom’s that just want a chance to show off the newest member of their family. The Sip N’ See invites you to grab a glass of bubbly and welcome the little bundle of joy into the world!

Our inspiration for this party stemmed from natural earthy elements and pops of bright, vibrant colors. When we were approached by our client, she had mentioned that the baby of honor was named Faye, which is a more mystical word for Fairy. So immediately we thought of a dreamy, mossy environment where Faye was the focus. Loose flowly organic florals, an abundance of sweets, a bassinette, Glamfete tissue paper garlands, moss and giant terraniums filled this beautiful southern style home.  Warm wheat hemstitch linens, mix matched colored plates, various patterned linen napkins, mod gold flatware, amber and emerald glass goblets decorated the table. Real moss blanketed the table and served as a forest bed for the lush florals. We sliced pieces of wood into small rounds to serve as mini platters for food and floral accents. A chandelier we created out of a wooden wreath wrapped in foraged greenery with strips of ivory fabric danced in the trees. Drop it Modern’s gold sequin backdrop created a pop of sparkle and served as a selfie station!- Lotta

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I have a discovery that your kids will greatly appreciate.

My favorite in the Table Design that is so full of creativity it will keep the kiddos happy and entertained during the meal.
