Well as most of you know my little Blake has arrived and I am SO in love with her!  I am now SO excited to share  my baby shower that was filled with so much love from all my girlfriends!  I was also lucky enough to have Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess feature my shower today as well on her blog…you can check out her amazing post here!

These last two years I have had the great pleasure to throw lots of baby showers for my girlfriends, specifically those in the wedding industry, and I have loved every minute of it…well, my turn came around and my sweet friends threw me the most gorgeous baby shower EVER!  I was so blessed the entire day and loved every second of it!  Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie, designed me the most dreamy invitations a girl could ask for.  Karrie did so much work for my shower and I love her tons!

I have gotten to help throw two baby showers for my Jesi Haack within these past 2 year and boy did she go all out for my shower.  She designed the entire headband making station…what an amazing idea is that and also created the ruffle backdrops for the dessert bar and drink station!

Of course I had to get my hands in on the shower a little bit once I saw the adorable invitation design, so I designed this cake after the invitation and thought up some cute new twists on mini desserts for my little blake!  Kyong & Jenna made the cake for me and all the girls at the bakery made my desserts look so great…I have such a great team!

Crew’s Ombre Surf 1st Birthday Party

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

To start off the New Year right I thought I would blog one of my favorite kid’s parties yet!  My sweet friend and photographer Ashley Rose’s little boy, Crew, turned 1 this year and I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing party!  Ashley is a super mom and basically did all of the design, decorating, projects, etc for the whole day!

6475661275_9d9624fac7_o

Some of my best girlfriends Elizabeth and Karrie from Posh Paperie created the fabulous invitations and the Wedding Chicks made these adorable printed bags!

For Crew’s birthday desserts we went with the ombre blue color scheme and added some surf themed touches to the desserts.

6475662765_263e06952b_o

I love this new ombre buttercream technique that we have been doing at the shop and thought it would be perfect for Crew’s cake…it’s modern, clean, and bold.  We added a fondant surfboard and some gold fish to the bottom of the cake and voila! Ashley also rented this fab table from Found Vintage Rentals!

6475662603_dcf516a7fa_o

We created some ombre blue cake lollipops and added mini shark fins to the tops of them.  For the bottom of the dish I thought it would be fun put the gold fish again.

6475665705_a06d0debb9_o

We then did some mini cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta shot glasses tinted blue, and chocolate dipped ombre rice crispy treats!

Here is the cutie digging into his cake….love these photos!

Carissa’s Space Invader Baby Shower

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

I am so excited to share this next baby shower with you since it is for one of my sweet wedding girlfriend’s, Carissa of JL Designs!  I am beyond happy for Carissa and Brian as they start this next chapter in their lives and to celebrate we did an over-the-top baby shower for them!  Carissa is having a little boy and loved the idea of a space invader themed shower so that is just what we gave her.  I teamed up with a bunch of my talented wedding friends to put the shower together and you can check them all out at the end of the post!

Up first the dessert bar!  We created robot cake pops, cupcakes with robot toppers, “asteroids” (white chocolate dipped donut holes), “flying saucers” (custom sugar cookies), and Kyong did a great Space Invader themed cake.

For the dessert bar we wanted it to be homestyle, but still have a touch of elegance so we went with all cut glass clear stands and even added in some fun domes too!

Full Post: Featured on sTORIbook Weddings!

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Well I have to say that I am very glad I snapped some photos of the gorgeous all chocolate dessert bar we did for the show sTORIbook Weddings!  We were there all day until 1am and even did two interviews, but I guess that all ended up on the editing floor room…welcome to the world of TV :)

Like I said before I was quite happy with how the dessert bar came out though. We used all clear crystal, cut glass crystal dishes, and antique silver for the set up and had the gorgeous rentals from Found Vintage Rentals that we were able to display them on.  On of my favorite aspects was the gorgeous hanging chandelier above the dessert table…so romantic! Here are some photos from the day!

I was also lucky to get some beautiful new photos from the wedding this morning from the photographer Susan Bordelon!

Modern Photo Shoot

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I absolutely love getting to do photo shoots with talented people and this shoot was definitely one of them!  I teamed up with my dear friends Courtney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, Carissa, from JL Designs, and Elizabeth & Karrie, from Posh Paperie for this amazing opportunity!  The fabulous wedding photographer, Jessica Claire, asked us to do a mock wedding set up for one of her photo workshops and I have to say that I think we went to town!  I absolutely love this modern, bold look for a wedding!  I thought it would be fun to start out with dessert photos for a chance, so here they are!
