Honest Company & Operation Shower

0comments

We were so honored to work with Details Details and Jessica Alba’s  Honest Company on this very special event. A baby shower for some well deserving military moms and moms-to-be. We created everything from invites, to menus to overall branding for the event. Here is a peek at the design board as well as a few pics from the event. Hop over to our newly updated eye candy gallery for lots more details of this fabulous event and all the amazing people involved.

Where have I been?!

Hey friends. Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. So sorry for my sudden absence. I decided to get LASIK eye surgery last week and my recovery was a little longer than expected. But I am back in action today. Just to give you an idea of my vision prior to LASIK without my contacts or glasses, see this photo below…no exaggeration. So cheers to clear vision!!

Chic No Cook Fourth of July

0comments

Here are some of my favorite ideas for having a chic Fourth of July with minimal prep and zero cooking!!

FOURTH-OF-JULY-NO-COOK-CHIC

Begin by serving a color appropriate drink like Rosé, Vie Vité being my Rosé of choice. No mixers, no hassle, simple and chic. Oysters on the half shell are so fabulous and especially with a simple mignonette and fresh lemon wedges.

Get creative with a Red White and Blue cheese platter like this one made up of organic Cow Girl creamery cheeses.

Finish off with some homemade pops made of fresh fruit and yogurt (spike them with vodka for the adults), and voila! Stress free chic and fabulous. Hope this inspires some of you for your celebrations this weekend!

I am sort of obsessed with dining alfresco now that summer is upon us. I love these ideas for a simple dinner party but also on a grander scale for an outdoor wedding!

Love this unique statement making presentation for oysters on the half shell!! Just pour a pile of ice, scatter your oysters and lemon slices and voila!

Use what’s around you like these adorable leaf details placed on each place. I love that there is a variety of leaves used too.

Don’t forget the candles. These mismatched candles are placed down the center of a long table providing mood lighting and the most magical touch.

Love this simple but brilliant idea to place a throw pillow on each chair. So pretty too.

How great is this casual yet chic setup. A low to the ground table is placed in the grass and guests sit on the ground upon blankets. Love the twinkle lights too.

Loving these rustic kraft paper plates used for an outdoor pizza night!

Individual baguettes wrapped in kraft colored parchment paper look so fabulous!

How to | Host an outdoor movie party

Now that you have the inspirations to create your very own outdoor movie party here are some simple steps to make it happen. We tried out the projector over the weekend and it was so much fun!! Think comfort by providing guests with overstuffed pillows and cozy blankets or bring your indoor furniture outdoors. I love the idea of having a popcorn bar or serving homemade chocolate date bars.
