Have a happy Memorial Weekend!

The theme has been decided and the plans are well underway. Yes, some might think I'm crazy to be planning my daughter's 1st birthday so early (she's 9 months old). I honestly think I started planning her party when she was in utero! But, there is a method to my madness!

I'm really excited to share with you details of her party in the coming months. Here are some clues to the theme...see if you can figure it out!

I was chomping at the bit to make my first purchase from Shop Sweet Lulu. I think I could've bought everything, but I had to control myself.

So, what do you think? Have you figured out Drew's birthday theme???

A few updates around the house

Happy Tuesday! I was able to do some painting this weekend....that means the kids took a long afternoon nap! Here is the new one I did in my living room. Nothing too fancy, just love the color combo. I was so excited to get all my dining room chairs back from the upholsterer over the weekend. Here are my $20 Craigs List chairs transformed. I love them!

Here is a good before picture of these chairs:

Here's Pemberly quickly breaking in the new chair. I have since had to cover all the new chairs with towels and blankets to keep these cats off!

More pictures coming soon as my dining room is almost complete! Yippeee!

Rachel & Mike's Wedding

Rachel and Mike got married on a beautiful day is sunny La Jolla. They were married at Mary Star of the Sea. Rachel was so sweet and a dream bride. They were having a very intimate, small reception and decided to do the flowers themselves, but really wanted special bouquets. I love when a bride can recognize that your bouquets really can enhance your wedding pictures.

We wanted a whimsical, fun bouquet that went well with Rachel's gorgeous dress. We used white roses, gardenia, lisianthus, and a hybrid baby's breath that went beautifully with the lace in her dress. We accented the bouquet with an antique broach to tie in her sash. Lastly, we used a few of these delicate white feathers to coordinate with her bridesmaid's, but made sure it didn't over-power her bouquet. I was so happy with the finished product...what do you think?

How stinkin' adorable are these bridesmaid's dresses? I love the color and the neck-tie. These bouquets consisted just of white lisanthus and the same white feathers we used in Rachel's bouquet. They were literally, light as a feather! Enjoy the wedding...

Hope everyone enjoyed this wedding as much as I did! If you have any need for florals for your wedding or event, email me

I'm pretty sure I just died and went to heaven. BHLDN is Anthropologie's bridal line and they just came out with party supplies today on their website. There are so many great pieces on their site, it was hard for me to narrow down my favorites!

I am SO loving this dress. My husband and I recently celebrated our 5th wedding, that would've been a great excuse to throw an anniversary party and get myself this beauty!!!

This is a bouquet made of paper. I can't imagine how much time it took to make, but that sounds like a fun project...hmmmm, the wheels are spinning....Drew's table with the felt tea set could use a centerpiece....

There is a growing trend for guys not to wear flowers as boutonierres. This one might be a little too frilly for some grooms, but I love this trend.

I recognized these cuties immediately. I have been a long-time follower of Ann Wood. She always sells out of her little birdies. Check out her website when you get a chance...I think Drew needs the Buttercup Girl for her room. If you're having a more whimsical wedding, these two would be adorable on top of your cake.

I'm dying over these notecards. I think I must have them...immediatley.

Where were these 6 years ago????

Chalkboards are all the craze interior design (mostly children's rooms) and definitely for parties and weddings. I really like the shape of these and the fact that you can hang them like gift tags...brilliant!
Glitter numbers? So fun. It would be really cute to make a banner of your wedding date hanging on church doors, aisle, or anywhere at the ceremony. It would also be really unique to have your child's birthdate hanging in their room. Too bad they don't have a dash!!! They also have glitter alphabet.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of garlands. The dot garland is so fun. The pennants are made of velum, which are very light-weight and semi-translucent. Both come in a few different colors.
I am just now getting into the tape craze. I love these black/white/silver combos. Check out Happy Tape many to choose from. I haven't bought any yet because I'm afraid it will be like my favorite candle...It's just too pretty to burn it. Does anyone else do that? But, I know I'm going to use some for Drew's party...just haven't decided which one I want just yet.

This is thick twine. I love this color combination. Baker's twine (they also sell) is big right now for parties, but these are thicker and could be more useful for wedding decor. I could see these twisted around a glass vase or used to hang vases. They also come in several color schemes.

Wow, one could go broke very quickly, right?!?! Check out BHLDN's full line of gowns, shoes, jewelry, and party decorating on their site. Maybe you'll find a perfect piece for your next event!
Let me know what items are your favorite!!!

Cardboard Box 1st Birthday Party

For those of you who have kids, you know one thing - you give your child a brand new toy and they are more interested in playing with the box or wrapping paper than they are with the new toy. Anything that is not a toy is more fun, so when I stumbled on this cardboard box 1st birthday party, I thought it was truly genius!!!

The ladies of hello! Lucky stationary & invitations are the brains behind this theme. I have on several occasions used their stationary...most recently I bought these as my Thank You cards when I had Drew. Adorable, right?

Back to the are some pictures, but be sure to check out the full post on the hello!Lucky blog. A theme with built-in entertainment for the kids all in one. So creative!

I love the B.Y.O.B. on the invites! If you have a guy in your life who likes to get involved, this could be the perfect theme....give him an razor blade and a few ideas and he could really help out and be a part of the creations! Maybe he'll think your less crazy if he gets to participate! Smile.

This party got me really excited for Drew's 1st birthday party. I've been gathering a few items here and there. New posts and details to come soon!

Katie & James

Oh La are so beautiful! Yes, I'm a little impartial because I got married outside in La Jolla, but there aren't very many better places in San Diego to get married outdoors. One of the best venues in La Jolla is the La Valencia Hotel.

Take a look at the wedding of Katie and James. Katie is so sweet and I had so much fun working her. Take a look...

Katie's bouquet consisted of white mini calla lilies, roses and roses. This simple white bouquet looked perfect against Katie's intricate and beautifully beaded gown.
