A Baby Shower for Isabelle Bridges Boesch~

After doing the beautiful wedding for Jeff Bridge's Daughter Isabelle, we helped welcome his first Grandchild too by doing this very fun baby shower.  Grace Louise is due in April and we cannot wait to meet her.  This fun inspiration of classic, black white and honeysuckle pink with mini polka dots and anemones was our theme.  17 women came and enjoyed the luncheon last Friday.  Thank you to all those that helped make this event so beautiful. Camilla Svensson Burns provided the themed florals and candles, she also made the dupioni white and black ribbon table runner for us.  Tracy Lazaro designed the little booklet style invites and our menu and place cards for the chair backs. Rentals by Town and Country   Linens by  Wildflower Linens   Photography for both the wedding and the shower were by Melissa Musgrove Photography.  Anemone cake: Claudia's Cakery.

featured on- Junebug Weddings~Santa Barbara Estate Wedding

 This table we used as our pre~ceremony cocktail table as the guests arrived off the shuttles.  During cocktail hour it then was perfect for our sushi station. 
 Besides serving Lemon Grass Soup with Lobster Potstickers as our first course. We also passed warm malasades to the guests~ Duo Catering was amazing!

 I loved the flower arrangements designed by cody floral design~so tropical and went beautifully on the twitter pattern from la tavola linens  The two shades of blue tuscano linen runners and linens, chair pads and napkins were perfect with the bright orange flowers.

Barnaby Draper was so much fun to work with~he and his team of photographers really captured this event for us.  He also photographed the Brunch we did for this client the next day.
The pool decor by Cody Floral looked so gorgeous both in the daylight and then again at night with the lighting provided by Ambient Event Design
This was such a fun wedding with a fantastic local family in Santa Barbara.  For more images and the full story click the real wedding section on Junebug Weddings  or the link below.

Break Away From Red and Pink!!!

Lets face it, we are all a little bored of the traditional red and pink roses and decorations for Valentines Day. So I thought, why not create an inspiration board that breaks out of that shell, but still remains extremely romantic, elegant, and classic. Since neutrals are so popular right now I decided I wanted this inspiration to be blush pink & champagne. With touches of lace, a little sparkle, and hand-painted custom invitations my look was brought together. Now all I need is a bride who wants this look, I'm dying to bring it to life! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and a very Happy Valentines Day on Monday.

The Wedding Luncheon - TSE 2011 - WIPA Gallery - Blue Heaven


This was my favorite gallery from the Wedding Luncheon I attended in Phoenix.  We are noticing decor is much about lighting this year.  Many clients forget how lighting adds so much to the decor, mood and theme.  I loved how classic this area looked~

The framed cow is so unexpected, yet so creative and fun!

The menus and placemat were made out of lucite.  The menus opened up to a long flat card.

                                I love the chairs at this table too.

                              This wasn't a cake, it was all different cheeses stacked and tiered.
