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!

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?

FAVORITE TROPICAL PARTIES

Yesterday, we threw a tropical birthday party for Mila and Brixrton. So today, I thought we'd take a look at some of our favorite tropical parties. You'll notice a few come from wedding/showers, which lets face it, is where we get a lot of inspiration from.

FAVORITE PARTY IDEAS

I could just gaze at pretty party pics all day… sigh. But who has the time? So here are five our favorite party ideas to give a short, fun sample of inspiration.

I can safely say, I never wanted a bachelorette party until I saw what Geronimo Balloons created for this bash featured on 100 Layer Cake. The explosion of pink frill and gold balloons just makes me so happy. Now I need to have one!

I need this fiesta-inspired decor in my life, all day everyday. Beijos Events was at the helm of this gorgeous inspiration on Green Wedding Shoes.

The balloon arch to end all balloon arches. I mean, this just makes me want to cry. It's so incredible. Created by The House That Lars Built for BHLDN.

These pretty donuts get me every time. So perfect for a baby shower. They're from a pink & gold sip n' see by Melissa Baum Events on 100 Layer Cakelet.
