Honest Company Shower Collaboration

About a month ago we had the honor of collaborating with The Honest Company and some amazing wedding vendors to create the ultimate baby shower inspired by a new Hippo pattern diaper Honest launched. It was such a fun project and working with Jeannie of Details Details is always a dream. Photograpby by Jessica Claire.

Mom Monday {summer essentials}

0comments

With summer in full swing, and trips to the pool becoming more regular, I thought I would share with you my summer essentials for Piper. Most are things that are tried and true, a few are things I am dying to try.

1.With sunblock being the new hot topic for “is it safe for my kids”, the Honest Company is my sunblock of choice. I know I can trust the safety of the product. Piper’s has super sensitive skin and the fact that she has no reaction to it is huge!

2. Sunglasses, or sunnies as we like to call them, not only protect Piper’s eyes, but they have a super glam look that she seems to really love. LOL!

3. This is something I have not tried but am dying to. Anyone out there use reusable swim diapers? I am so over buying the cheesy looking, expensive swim diapers, and these seem so fabulous. Eco-friendly AND stylish=perfection!

4. Flip flops are my shoes of choice when going to the beach or the pool. These adorable ones from Old Navy are 2 for $5 which makes a lost shoe much less painful. Plus, how cute are they? Piper has a few pairs and loves them. The ankle strap helps keep them on.

5. Between the heat and the chlorine, Piper’s sensitive skin seems to flair up a ton right now. This all natural, organic ointment from Mother Love is amazing. I wish I knew about it when she was a baby too. It works miracles.

6. I blogged about the amazing pops I made with my new Zoku popsicle maker the other week. It has now officially been put on my must haves. It’s so great! Perfect for the hot summer days.

I could not wait to share these gorgeous photos that Braedon Photography took of a recent project we did. We worked with the amazingly talented Desiree of Desiree Spinner Events to create custom invitations and day of pieces for her son’s birthday party. Check out the results!

We hand letterpress printed the invitations on a cotton paper. Then flat printed the rest of the pieces which included circle gift tags, menus and cookie tags!

Thanks Desiree for such a fun project and Braedon, thank you for capturing it so beautifully!

Squash Blossom Inspired

3comments

Ok so if you are familiar with Squash Blossoms, you know what I mean when I say they are absolutely gorgeous and so yummy! Fried, stuffed squash blossoms are definitely a popular item on menus these days, so I got to thinking, what if there was a wedding that was just completely squash blossom inspired!? From the color palette, to the cocktails (maybe use a blossom as a garnish) to the bouquets and boutonnieres, appetizers…the skys the limit…who’s with me!?

I absolutely love Don’t eat the paintings‘ work, and this illustration of a squash blossom frittata would be so pretty displayed during the reception. Maybe even the entire menu done this way!?

Don’t forget a custom Wiley Valentine monogram.

Forage Bow Tie’s, jcrew bridesmaid dresses and yellow shoes! What gorgeous touches. Ok now which one of your brides to be is going to take this on!? Let’s make invites together! xoxo
