GRATITUDE COLLABORATIVE MOTHER'S DAY AT AU FUDGE

We had so much fun creating this tablescape for the Gratitude Collaborative Mother's Day gift box launch. Baby Boy Bakery chose her favorite mom must-haves, and Oh Joy! designed the box, for this gift that benefits No Kid Hungry.

For the playful centerpiece, we curated a collection of tropical, jungle and desert in a sea of pinks and gold. Marnika Weiss did all of the custom painting and Clementine Floral Works provided the flowers. Hope you enjoy the photos by Billye Donye at Au Fudge!

Sisters! [We may be partial to sisters.] Genius sisters Chloe and Olivia started Olli Ella as a happy accident. After not being able to find a nursing chair to fit the eclectic feel of her first childโ€™s nursery, Chloe Brookman, and her sister Olivia, designed a chair themselves. Since then they've turned the endeavor into a beautiful, modern home decor line, with a focus on the nursery. We especially love their baskets and wanted to share a few of them here with you. 

So cute for home or a trip to the farmers' market! 

GOLDEN PINEAPPLE COSTUME

I'm obsessed with Studio DIY and her genius Halloween costumes. She's had some amazing ones this year -- my favorites include kiwimilkshakescactus, popcorn and today's gumball machine.  

My first attempt at a Studio DIY costume for Mila was last year in the form of a pineapple. I followed the Pineapple Costume DIY and paired the green topper with a dress from American Apparel. I love that this costume can just go with anything yellow in the closet!

A year later and I'm still so in love with this pineapple costume situation! So I went for a gold version, using shiny gold card stock and a white plastic headband from Michaels. [A few notes: I glued the leaves together so they were gold on both sides. The shiny side of the paper wouldn't hold the glue/more leaves. Studio DIY calls for about 20 and I was only able to do about 5 so you're certainly getting a different look going this route.] Mila is wearing a Wovenplay suit and holding a brass pineapple from Borrowed BLU

P.S. Wanted to share this sweet photo of the kids taking a break at our Halloween table. Here's the "Sophisticated Halloween Dinner Party For People Who Hate Orange" on ELLE DECOR.

OPPOSITE OF FAR + THE WISHING ELEPHANT FOR HALLOWEEN

I first fell in love with Opposite of Far at the YEAH! Furniture Pop-Up Family Brunch. The adorable felt masks are all designed and made by creator/owner Jessica Near in her small town Central Indiana studio.

Then I was so happy to discover The Wishing Elephant through their Opposite of Far  collaborations. They really have some genius costumes. Did you see that Bjork Swan dress we had in our Halloween Costumes for Girls? Incredible!
