VINTAGE CAMPING BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR BRIXTON'S 3RD BIRTHDAY

We love going all-out for our kiddos' birthdays. Since Brixton is such a huge Beatles and 1960’s classic rock fanatic, I was really inspired to create a celebration really tailored to his personality and interests, despite the fact that we had decided to have the party at a farm! With summer just around the corner I thought it would be really fun to create a vintage-inspired camping party. 

We served a camping breakfast of breakfast burritos, banana-blueberry muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt and granola. Campers sipped on fresh-squeezed orange juice and organic lemonade, as well as cold brew coffee for the grown-ups. Camping wouldn’t be complete without s’mores, so we added a “breakfast twist” by serving S’mores donuts, along with banana birthday cake -- topped with woodland animals, a mini canoe and fresh greens.

I had a lot of fun scouring flea markets and eBay for the vintage camping and summer camp items. We made our own table linens and napkins from various plaid and army green material purchased at the fabric store. I wanted to add a fresh element as well, so we added greens in tin cans, as well as leather-wrapped bunches, to the tables. 

Underwood Family Farms is so beautiful and well maintained. There is so much for kids to do there. It completely takes care of the entertainment and activity aspect of the party, which is why we chose to have it there.

TUTU DU MONDE HIGH TEA AT AU FUDGE

Tutu Du Monde joined forces with Modern Queen Kids to throw a super fun tea party in Los Angeles this month. Founder Andrea Rembeck hosted beautiful mommies (including Rebecca Gayheart and Tori Spelling) for an afternoon filled with sweet treat nibbling and flower crown making. 

Held in the creative space at Jessica Biel's Au Fudge, the feminine and floral decor from Fire and Creme Kids set the perfect tone. Here are the gorgeous photos by Nicki Sebastian.

Too much prettiness!
