Oman, the life and times of the consummate creative-type who wears many, many hats. This month, it’s party planning professional y’all. When you’ve got pitch perfect sunny SoCal weather pretty much every month out of the year, it’s especially festive to throw these events outdoors where lush greenery and vast landscape blend in to become a part of your décor.
Bonus points for incorporating teensy palm trees that look like they came straight from the isles of Hawaii. No longer branded for babies and their respective mothers, modern day showers should celebrate everyone that’s become a part of your growing ohana. After all, the boy is mainly responsible for how you got preggo in the first place right, why not invite him and the entire posse plus 100? More peeps = More gifts! We’re no fools ;D
Beverage sleeves for our guests to take home…
Bright and bold dessert table to cure that sweet tooth…
Aloha Baby Jaxon…can’t wait to shower you with surf and sun!
Yes, it’s ALWAYS about “co-ordinating!”…*cue “Boomerang” hand gestures ;D {Ensemble: DIY maxi-dress, fabric from Jenny’s fabrics in Huntington Beach}
Our gorgeous parents-to-be!
Snow cones and face-painting!
Where there’s booze (for him), there’s happy bellies (for her)!
Every luau’s gotta have LIMBO!
…and of course baby games!…
My girls, my SKITTLES…Cheers!
The gang’s all here!
Congratulations to our besties Annie and John… Can’t wait to meet baby Jaxon!
