Sep16 Ritzy Bee Shower 2014

Beatrice Lily was welcomed into the world four weeks ago, but before that friends and family came around to celebrate and anticipate her arrival. The event was held at the mother-to-be and event planner extraordinaire Maria of Ritzy Bee’s home .  The event was hosted by fellow Ritzy Bee genius Kelly and Suann of Simplesong Design.

Here’s Maria with a few of her favorite shower details:

“The invitation was an adorable carved wood B block with the details of the shower wrapped around them on a letter pressed card folded around the block…set on a little nest and mailed in a beautiful box. They took off a spin off my nursery animal menagerie theme and put adorable moss baby animals (giraffe, elephant & bears) around my house for decor…and the B wreath motif was made into a beautiful custom fabric used for the table runner, pillows and onto the panels of the outside bar.”

Sep09 Foxy Nursery 2014

For the love of the outdoors, this nursery will make you want to go hiking.
GreyLikesBaby AshleighPeak001 Foxy Nursery

The inspiration for Everett’s nursery came from my husband and I’s love of hiking and camping.  We went to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks for our babymoon.  We bought the maps, arrow and bear stuffed animal at their visitor centers.  The Amish made rocking chair was passed down to me; My Dad gave it to my Mom when she was pregnant with me.  We bought the Minnetonka moccasin booties in Jackson Hole, WY (while on our babymoon).  The deer painting was done by Bobby Spillman (a friend of ours and local artist).  The accent wall paint is Wish Upon A Star by Farrell Calhoun.  “Everett” banner was made by my best friend for my baby shower.

Sep05 Jacadi 2014

Ok, I think it’s time we all admit that we’re obsessed with all things French – including their classy style, language, culture and of course Paris.

The Paris based clothing brand Jacadi has the most tasteful clothing for babies & kids that are perfect for their back-to-school looks. With the school year starting and their refreshed interest in learning your kids will love what Jacadi has developed. If you head to their home page right now you’ll find fun activities for the whole family focused on learning French language and comparing French and American culture. They have come up with the most interactive ways for kids to pick up interesting facts comparing the American and French (and the beginnings of a love for the city of lights).  They review language, school, sports, days of the week, landmarks and more fun facts that are interesting to both us and our children.  So in an effort to create cultured and educated kids let’s have a little fun learning, plus how cute is it to hear your little ones say ‘bonjour’. I might do a  little shopping while I’m there.  Jacadi Here’s my favorite bit of information. The language translations for every day words that your kids can read phonetically.  Jacadi
