Dec08 Cozy Birthday 2014
Warning, you’re going to want to have s’mores and hot chocolate wearing a big cable knit sweater once you look at this wintery birthday party. The little celebration took place in Illinois which provided a fabulous fall tree for the backdrop. Throw in some chocolate, some fire roasted marshmallows, blankets and best friends and there you have the coziest birthday party ever!
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
“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”

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.”

Sep02 A baby shower around a farm table 2014
A shower celebrated at the home of the soon-to-be grandparents with a gorgeous meal around a farm table built by the grandfather. The soon-to-be parents are also photographers and took fabulous photos of their shower. The whole thing is so classy and tasteful, I can’t get enough.
