0comments

I was putting together some inspirations for a bride, and I am truly smitten with this color palette. Think soft peaches layered tones of warm greys. Soft, romantic, a modern classic simplicity…aahhh so excited for this one you guys. I can envision a soft color wash with layers of warm grey letterpress and maybe even blind letterpress details…smitten.

Mom Monday {Mommy & Me Yoga}

0comments

We decided to host a mommy and me yoga afternoon with some of Piper’s besties over the weekend. We started with our amazing yoga instructor, that Lisa, my co-host, and I just love. We take her class at our gym, and when we started talking to her after class one day she mentioned that she teaches kids, parties, and even mommy daughter classes. We were so excited about this we began planning right away. On the day of the event, guests arrived in their yoga gear, yoga mat in hand and were met with strawberry mint water, kale chips and crispy chickpeas. After fueling up on power snacks, we made our way to the park next to Lisa’s house, and placed our mats under a tree for shade. We had such a fun time, being silly, connecting, and most importantly breathing. After working up an appetite during our class, we made our way back to the house for a build your own pink rice bowl bar. This was a huge hit with the kids as well as the adults which is always a win. By offering an array of options for guests to build their own bowl, you can avoid having to worry about what everyone likes or doesn’t like. This way everyone could customize their bowl with exactly what they love. The tahini miso honey sauce was an amazing way to finish it off. And who knew the kale chips were going to be so popular! Next time I will definitely make more. All in all, it was such a successful afternoon, and we plan on rotating homes, so we can do this again! It’s super simple to recreate this yoga party, and a great way to carve out time for you and your little one. Ask around at your gym or local yoga spot for an instructor who might offer private classes. Serve up some infused water, and healthy inspired food, and the rest takes care of itself. Give it a try! Namaste.

Here is your friendly reminder, it’s father’s day this weekend! This weeks Friday Faves is full of father’s day ideas. A great idea if you aren’t sure what to do with the father’s in your life, take them to a local brewery. Many are family friendly, and if you are lucky enough to live near San Diego, Stone Brewery is my pick. They have fabulous food and lawn games for outdoor fun! Enjoy the weekend friends! Don’t forget you can shop the post for my father’s day picks at the bottom of the post. xoxo

Emily’s Baby Shower

0comments

FINALLY! I am so excited to finally show you the gorgeous images from Emily’s baby shower photographed by the amazing Andrea Patricia. When we started talking about the arrival of Emily’s second baby girl and the idea of a shower, Emily really wanted something simple, intimate and cozy. Bingo! We decided to gather her closest friends and family and have a cozy dinner party. Nili Stevens Inspired Living, my co-host and planner extraordinaire made all the delicious food which was amazing! She made a puree of white bean soup topped with crispy prosciutto that we tray passed with cocktails in three ounce petite soup bowls. There was a cheese and charcuterie plate (of course) on fabulous display pieces by Vagabond House.  The menu also included an Arugula Salad with Meyer Lemon Shrub Vinaigrette, Pork Sugo Parpadelle with Hazelnuts and Fresh Herbs and Organic Zucchini Sauté with Chili and Lemon. We offered guests blankets to snuggle out by the fire pit as the sun set. The blankets were placed on the most gorgeous Vagabond House tray and the blankets doubled as favors. We showered Emily with love, friends, and fabulous food. It was a success I must say!
