Having been trained in hospitality design all these years, I’ve grown quite accustomed to months upon months of developing interior spaces to meet their fullest potential.

It often takes years to complete an entire project so when opportunities arise to design mini-events like birthday parties and baby showers for my gal pals, I often delight at the chance and dare to dream BIG! A few measly weeks of planning sure beats years in the making y’all!  One of my best friends, Mary is having a baby girl so what better way to welcome our little Blake into the world than with a spring-inspired fête fit for a blossoming bun in the oven!
Buds of moss and succulent terrariums filled the space with garden adventures and gifts from Mother Nature.
{Asos dress, CZ Swimsuit cover-up (worn as kimono, similar here and here), Aldo sandals (similar HERE), vintage quilted bag (similar HERE), Arden B. earrings, Forever 21 necklaces, YSL arty ring}
Dangling DIY-yarn spheres and wicker balls blend with the table scape to create an earthy environment grounded with sweets and treats.
Guests are entertained with food, photo booths, and face-painting fun…they’ll never have a minute with nothing to do!
Potted pint-sized plant gardens to take home and relive the memory of this magical celebration!
Congratulations Mary and Van, cheers to my newbie niece Baby Blake! We can’t wait to smother the little angel, T-minus 3 weeks Mama! Love you forever!!!
