Jesi’s Baby Shower…Her Favorite Work of Art

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Hopefully you haven’t gotten tired of my baby shower posts yet because this is quite the cute one!  One of my best girlfriends, Jesi from Jesi Haack Design, just had her third little one and this time she had an adorable little girl…River June!  I am so excited for little Blake and River to become best of friends!

I had the joy of hosting Jesi’s baby shower for little River at my house along with the help of Carissa, from JL Designs who did all the florals and yarn backdrop, Carlie from Gabriel Ryan Photography who took the fabulous photos and also crafted up a ton of yarn goodies, Amber from Pitbulls & Posies did the most amazing invitations and paper design, and Courtney from Joyful Joyful who also helped us craft too!

All of us girls loved the saying “You’re my favorite work of art” and we thought it was a perfect theme for Jesi’s shower since she is the ultimate wedding designer and crafter extraordinaire :)  We loved the idea of using yarn throughout the shower and I have to say I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

We had a craft all set to go, but to be honest we skipped it in the end because all of us ladies were too lazy to do it :)

For the dessert bar and cake I definitely wanted to stick to the color scheme and incorporate the yarn!  We did a amber/yellow ombre buttercream cake and then accented it with yarn balls that Carlie made for me.

Our mini mason jar desserts have been a big crowd pleaser at parties and weddings recently so I thought I would do them again and just attach the spoons with yarn.

For the mini red velvet cupcakes we added a tiny purple fondant yarn knot to them for a fun accent.

Monopoly Themed 1st Birthday Party

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

I had the pleasure of being a part of Jina Park, from Plush Little Baby, little son Brendan’s 1st birthday party!  Jina pulled out all the stops to make Brendan’s birthday party one to remember!  Vanessa from Alchemy Events came alongside Jina and helped her pull off this special day.  The party theme was all around the Monopoly game and I have to say that they didn’t leave any detail undone.  The special day was held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood and I was so excited to see the gorgeous photos of how the whole day came together!  Corbin of Corbin Gurkin Photography captured the day perfectly!

I was so in awe when I first saw the photos from this wedding that I got to be a part of over on Ruffled’s Blog…the photos that Kelty from Steep Street took were simply gorgeous!  I also love getting to work with Nozza Studios whenever I get a chance; they did a wonderful job pulling the entire design together.

A Gorgeous Rustic, Elegant Wedding at The Villa!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

I am just in love with this next wedding that I got to be a part of!  The couple are good friends of Carissa, from JL Designs, who did all the floral design and clearly you can tell that they are have fabulous taste!  They wanted their wedding design to be early southern california history mixed with some masculine texan details.  I love the rich color scheme and the rustic touches here and there.  The talented Ashley Rose photographed the whole wedding and I love think the photos are dreamy!  The Villa at San Juan Capistrano was the fantastic venue it was held at.

They had a special family recipe they wanted us to recreate which was a fun addition to the mini dessert bar.

For the cake we wanted to do something clean and modern, but also look rich and elegant.  We stuck with the white and gold color scheme and I decided to paint fondant braids gold and use them to wrap around the cake tiers.  Then we did a white ruffle sugar flower with a large gold center.
