Whenever we have people over for dinner, I get so excited to pull out my Fiestaware plates and set the table! I did this arrangement for our Father’s Day lunch this year, which is why I tried to stick to the typical boy colors of blue and green. Even the lucky bamboo matched!
We had our very first girl’s trip this month with my Mom and sisters and it just so happened to be in Orange County where I live! So before the real party started in Newport Beach, we had a sleepover at my place followed up with a yummy morning brunch! Place cards, striped straws, linen napkins and even a donut tower! I get so much joy and satisfaction out of doing stuff like this – especially when it’s with people I love.
It was my Dad’s 60th birthday this year and that definitely called for a celebration! A surprise celebration with the whole family to be exact. As soon as I saw this tutorial for an awesome vintage marquee sign I knew I wanted to make a “60” and make it the focal point of the party. So I bought the materials, pulled out my exact-o knife and got to work! It was definitely a time consuming project but totally worth the outcome.
For a Mom who already had three girls, a baby boy on the way was definitely a welcomed surprise! When my sister-in-law came to me to with her idea of incorporating California “Cuties” for this baby shower, I just knew the designs would be orange-tastic. I designed the pie bunting, the straw flags, brownie toppers, and gift tags for the take-away gift.
