EASTER PARTY

Our Easter party checklist includes carrot cake, crudités with spinach leek dip, deviled eggs, watermelon bunnies, fresh flowers, confetti eggs, surprise bunnies and lots of fun partyware.

Love the way that tulip opened.

Sweet little birds sweeping over the flowers.

The Meri Meri surprise bunnies and pinwheels help to fill empty space on the table.

The kids welcome the Easter Bunny (cake topper).

And then dig into the treats. 

How cute are the little quail eggs in the crudités box from Joan's On Third?

MILA'S PEONY PICNIC BIRTHDAY PARTY

It's Mila's birthday week! So I'm reminiscing and looking back. Here's a peek at her 2nd birthday. You may remember it from 100 Layer Cakelet (and as one of their favorite kids birthday parties of 2014). Hopefully, I've included a few here you haven't seen before.

I had planned an elaborate balloon overhang, à la Geronimo Balloons, but my helium resource fell through. So I went to plan b by criss-crossing twine amongst the trees and hanging the balloons from there.

These were literally the last batch of coral peonies for the season.

I love this gold twine for the cutlery so much. I hope I can figure out something as good for Mila and Brixton's birthday party this weekend!

FIVE THINGS TO INSPIRE YOUR LABOR DAY CELEBRATION

When I think Labor Day, I think hot dogs and hamburgers at the beach. Right? But what about things like popsicles and lemonade at the park? We've got you covered! Here's some "non-traditional" Labor Day inspiration.

Popsicles are a great dairy-free alternative to ice cream. We loved Sweet Clementine's strawberry-rose treats at the Hedley & Bennett mini apron launch.

And lastly, I could be a vegetarian if it came with farmers' market crudités and homemade ranch dip from Heirloom LA every day. Yeah!
