Top 10 Tuesdays: Totally Unique Baby Shower Ideas for Baby Boys

February 3rd, 2015

We’re Baaack!

On our last post we collected our favorite baby shower ideas for baby girls. We loved the concept of planning themed baby showers that we thought we’d give it one more go with baby boys. There are just so many creative ideas to choose from it was difficult to keep it at only 10, but we did it!

We’re so anxious to share with you what we put together so without further ado…

Top 10 Tuesdays




This idea is so much fun and allows you to get very creative with it. It’s so colorful and there are so many game ideas it’s hard to contain oneself with the entertainment! If you think outside the box you will see there are a hundred and one ways to make this theme your own. For favors our favorite things are the Big Top Themed boxes that you can fill with peanuts or animal crackers to stay within the theme.






Bring a little country nostalgia to your baby shower with this adorable and simple theme. It’s great especially in the summer and it’s so easy, you can add any agricultural element to make every small detail count! Sunflowers, haystacks, produce, gingham, burlap and farm animals are elements that you can play with to make it feel like a real barnyard bash. For favors our top picks are personalized burlap bags that can be filled with candy corn, the egg shaped kitchen timer, or mini picnic baskets that you can fill with treats and use red or gingham patterned fabric as an additional decorative element.





Just like the barnyard theme, the Jungle Safari lets you get wild! Bring in exotic animals to be the centers of attention, make the party feel like your guests are going on a jungle excursion and let everyone’s imagination roam free. For favors we suggest our King of the Jungle Lion Candle, exotic animal brownie pops, or the animal friends frame.





Nothing is as synonymous with babies quite like the ubiquitous rubber ducky. We see a rubber ducky and immediately we think, “Awww.” Bring this sweetness to your baby shower and get creative with blues, yellows, towels, and bubbles! And all these elements are so easy to find that you can throw a great party even if you’re on a tight budget. For favors our favorite choices are our rubber ducky soap that comes prepackaged and ready for display or our rubber ducky candle.





The nautical baby shower theme is so unique because very few things represent masculinity the same way the open ocean does. Use elements like anchors, rope, boats, nets, and fish to make your party décor a hit. There are so many adorable ways to bring this theme to life you’ll be unstoppable and your guests will love it.  For Favors we loved the elegant sailboat tea light holders, or the anchor shaped bookmark.




For some reason, everyone loves monkeys. They’re cute, they’re silly, they’re loud, but most of all monkeys know how to have fun. It’s their “monkey business!” Bring this silliness to your own baby shower with adorable swinging monkeys, palm trees, bananas, and vines hanging from your ceiling. You’ll find yourself “monkeying around!” For favors we have the cutest monkey candle, monkey place card holders that your guests can take home and place their favorite photos of the shower on display, or the personalized monkey design jelly bean pack that’s easy and ready to go.




One of the absolutely most popular themes for baby showers or even children’s parties is the “Little Man” theme. Hands down. Everyone seems to gravitate toward this theme because….well, how can you not! Every baby boy will eventually grow into a gentleman, so why not use these elements for a baby boy that’s on the way. Mustaches, top hats, bow ties, and glasses are all so playful and whimsical it will be a hit no matter what you do. Our favorite favors for this theme are the personalized travel candle and the mustache cookie cutter.





Congratulations to the “Mommy to Bee!” One of the reasons why we love this theme is because it can be gender neutral with these bold and bright colors and its easy to execute. We love using beehives, bees, honeycombs, and bright yellows to bring this party to life. For favors we loved the honeycomb soap and the beehive box that can be filled with goodies. Either way, your guests will love it.





Who doesn’t love teddy bears?  Teddy bears are so sweet and tender, they bring peace and happiness with each hug no matter how old you are. Even as children, our teddy bears always held a special place in our heart and how perfect is this theme to welcome a baby boy? You can use soft blues, creams, and mochas and teddy bear décor to make this party so adorably sweet for everyone. Our top picks for favors are the super cute teddy bear towel, the bear bookmark, and for cupcake wrappers you have to go with our cream colored, laser cut bear wrappers. They’re “Bear-y” beautiful!






Last but not least is probably our favorite theme on this list, the black and gold color scheme. It’s modern, it’s elegant, and it’s chic and we just love it to welcome a dapper young gentleman. Treat the mommy to be with a sophisticated and elegant party that she will never forget. Gold is all the rage this season so go crazy with it! Black stripes and chevron, gold accents everywhere are the perfect way to decorate for a party as elegant as this. For favors we loved our metallic gold foil personalized lollipops, goody bags, and the always elegant black scroll frames. You can’t wrong with these!

You didn’t think we’d forget to show your our favorite gifts and keepsakes, did you? Of course not. Baby Showers are about more than just cute decor and favors, the parents to be also need to have some essentials and some keepsakes to be ready for the baby’s arrival! Here are some of our favorite gifts, both practical and whimsical!

Baby Shower Clothesline Keepsakes

The Clothesline keepsake is a perfect way to keep your guests busy by having them fill out some parenting tips and hanging them on the clothesline and will be beautiful hanging in the baby’s room!







The New Daddy Toolbelt is a perfect gag gift for new daddies who need diaper change training! Seriously though, all these tools do come in handy!

It’s nearly impossible to have a Top 10 list without including the “Little Princess” theme! It’s so girly and lovely, it’s almost impossible to overlook.

Bridal Beauty 101

July 8th, 2014

Hello Lovelies!

One of the details that’s so important to not overlook on your wedding day is your bridal makeup. On your wedding day everyone’s eyes will be on you and there will be lots and lots of cameras in your face documenting every. single. moment. Of course you want to look and feel your absolute best!  So now more than ever is the time to put your best face forward.

We have collected some ideas to help you achieve the perfect bridal look!

Briday Beauty 101


• Know your face shape so that you know what areas needs to be accentuated and where to apply product so that it will best enhance your features.

• Don’t forget the eyebrows! Eyebrows are the key to framing your eyes and face. Find the brow shape that best fits your face, fill them in, and take good care of them.

• If you have under-eye circles, find a concealer that covers them up the best, apply it in an upside down triangle under your eye with a concealer brush or beauty blender sponge, and set it with powder.

• Lashes! Lashes take your best eye makeup looks to the next level of glam! Try them on and you’ll see how much of a difference lashes make.



• Proper Skin care goes a long way in giving you the perfect canvas to work with. Take care of your skin with moisturizer, sunscreen, serum, or whichever products give you that natural, radiant glow.

• Stay hydrated! On the weeks leading up to your wedding drink lots of water every day to help your skin look its best.

• It’s best to skip on trying new products right before your big day. You don’t want to be dealing with irritated skin or breakouts.


•  Balance – If you’re going with bold brows or smokey eyes, pair them with a nude lip. Or if you’re more inclined for a gorgeous, plump lip color, go with soft and romantic eyes.

• Invest in a good set of quality brushes- they make a big difference in application and blending. The best brushes are designed to prevent product fall out and give you a smooth, effortless, and flawless application.

• But most importantly, spend some time  learning how to enhance your most beautiful features through the magic of contouring. The key is in learning the techniques and finding the right mix of products for your face.

Here, Nur from HSN shares some great tips and tricks to achieve that polished, contoured face:

You can achieve that stunning, flattering, makeup look you envisioned for your wedding with simple tips and tricks that you can do yourself. If doing your own wedding makeup is out of the question, these are good ideas to bring up to your makeup artist so that they can perfect your already beautiful face for your big day.

Remember, you will be looking at your wedding pictures for a lifetime and you want your makeup to be “picture perfect.” If you live in the Los Angeles or Orange County, CA area we highly recommend Georgette. You can find her at

“Top 10 Tuesdays” – DIY Treat Stations

June 10th, 2014

Happy Tuesday Friends :)

Today we’re in a creative spirit so we put together a post to inspire you for your next party!

Top 10 Tuesday - DIY Party Stations


Everyone has been to a party where there was a Candy Buffet. It’s such a great idea to be able to give your guests the chance to put their own favor bags together of their favorite sweets. Today we want to give you ten new ideas for your treat station!

But first, some tips and tricks on how to set up your party station:

• To start off, you’ll to pick a location in your venue to set up the station. Pick a prominent wall or corner that will immediately grab your guest’s attention. It doesn’t have to be focal point of the venue but it needs to be in a place that’s easy to see and access from anywhere in the room.

• Decorate the station starting with a backdrop and a banner announcing to your guests what the station is serving. And you’ll want to go with the colors or theme of your party to bring cohesion to the decor. Add some tall flowers, votive candles, cute quotes, sayings or instructions in frames, or anything else that might make your table come alive with color.

• Set up a large rectangular table with all the elements you’ll need to complete the station and make sure you have provided plates, utensils, cups, or whatever it is you’ll be serving on.

We recommend hitting up it your local dollar store or crafts store for inexpensive serving platters, glassware, and tableware.

You’ll want to choose glassware of different heights and set them up to bring symmetry to the décor. The tallest platters look better if placed in the back and smaller ones in the front. Place the cups, plates, and utensils on the sides for easy access.

• Depending on the station you’re making, you might consider “DIY-ing” or renting taller serving “towers” to add more space to your table for other tasty options as well as for decorative purposes.  Remember to offer a variety of options for your guests to choose from!

• If you’re planning on creating a station that offers something that needs assistance, such as panini station that needs a grilling or a DIY signature cocktail station you might want to have someone man the station to help your guests put together the tasty treats!

DIY Treat stations are so much fun for the entire party for many reasons. They let your guests create something that they’ll enjoy, it’s a great way to decorate your space, offers a way to break the ice among your guests, and it’s a great idea to keep the guests entertained in between activities.

So without further ado, here are our favorite station ideas!


Make your own S’more Station

For a cozy winter themed party, a S’more station is just the thing you need to warm you up!

Creamy Hot Chocolate Station

As with the S’more station, a hot chocolate station would be perfect for a party in the wintertime. It’s cold outside! Let your guests warm up to each other with a hot chocolate in hand!

Decorate your own Cupcake Station

Our personalized twisted stem champagne flutes are ideal for the mimosa bar!





Veggie Station

The store bought veggie serving platters are a healthy and yummy alternative to sweets, but the platters lack a certain…pizzazz! Make your own station from inexpensive glassware from the dollar store and bring some extra oomph to the Veggie station.



 You can use these personalized, adorable glass jars and pre-fill them with ranch dressing so that your guests can just grab one and fill them with veggies of their choice!




Make your own sliders Station

This is one of our favorite ideas for the summer! If you’re having a summer get together, have guests make their own sliders! Just be sure to have plenty of sizzling hot slider patties always available.


Sliders Station IMG_26481/2/3

 Choose your desserts Station

We all love the candy buffets, who doesn’t! Here’s a different way to satisfy that sweet tooth!

The gorgeous scenery offers an incredibly romantic and intimate vibe, especially if you escape to Passion Island that’s removed from crowds. This is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for more privacy.


•  Riviera Maya


Also located along the Yucatan peninsula is the Luxurious Riviera Maya. This region is “comprised of a number of smaller resort towns and villages, including Tulum, Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, each with their own vibe.” With an endless list of activities, tourist attractions and white sandy beaches, this is definitely paradise on Earth.

Use Blush and striped linens for the chairs, black pom poms and an overabundance of pearls and sparkly brooches. Lush flower arrangements would look so perfect in square shaped vases with Chanel’s signature scent label as table numbers.

“Top 10 Tuesdays” Vintage Blush Wedding Decor & Favor Ideas

April 15th, 2014


Happy Tuesday Lovelies!

Every Tuesday we bring you our top picks for what’s hot and trending in the industry. Today, we’re sharing with you 10 Decor and Favor Ideas for a Vintage Blush Wedding.

Right now the Vintage and Blush wedding theme is incredibly hot and if you’re excited to go with this gorgeous theme for your wedding, here are some ideas to inspire you!

Top 10 Tuesdays - vintage blush




One of the best ways to really pull off the vintage vibe in your wedding is by choosing the right venue. Try to go with a barnyard or a even a woodsy area to host your big day!


Relish the Vintage Details

They say that the smallest details have the biggest impact, and nothing could be more true when it comes to the decor of your wedding. Transform the space with lace, burlap, wooden crates, beautiful antique furniture, and even hang vintage dresses to give the decor a charming, rustic feel.

vintage details1/2/3/4/5/6


Color choice is important, and flowers are a great way to bring some color into your decor. Some of the most beautiful flowers to use for this theme are white and soft pink roses, pink peonies, hydrangeas, rhododendrons and camellias.



Candlelight offers a soft, warm, almost golden romantic tone to the wedding. Use it in the tablescapes, buffet tables, escort tables or anywhere you can place a gorgeous candle or tea light.


Blush Backdrop

Bring the glamour right to the front of the show with a gorgeous blush backdrop. Get your DIY on and tie strips of fabric of different lengths to a long wooden dowel or rope to tie to a couple of trees. Use cream, blush, white, and soft pink color  to create this gorgeous look. The backdrop can be used during the ceremony, behind your head table, or even photo booth for the reception.



Here are a few of our favorite favors for this romantic day! You can personalize them to make them extra memorable, they’re adorable and practical!


This theme gives you a chance to indulge in another popular trend… Chalkboard! Use Chalkboard signs with a nice, script font to help your guests navigate the reception.

Use your Mother’s or Grandmother’s veil 

Wearing your mother’s or grandmother’s veil is such a loving and sentimental gesture that everyone will love! The veils they may have used are sure to have a vintage look, and you can add antique brooches, lace, or even a feather here and there to give it your personal touch.

Old Books as centerpieces

Old, hardback novels can make whimsical and lovely centerpieces. Dress them up with twine, lace, or even strings of pearls and top them with blush flowers in mason jars or vintage teapots to make it a unique centerpiece.




Old Photos Display

Since we’re going with a reminiscent vibe, a longing for the old days, why not have a wall where you can display old black and white photos? Gather some old photos of the families and hang them on twine with clothespins or showcase them in vintage frames for a perfect finishing touch.

5 Bachelorette Party Ideas That You’re Dying to Try!

April 4th, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 7.09.56 AM


When planning the Bachelorette Party the Million Dollar question is “What Should We Do?” And the typical answers are always Las Vegas or a night out on the town. Fun? Yes. New? No. How about trying something completely new for a change!? Capitalize on the bride’s personality and choose an activity that suits her and is exciting and adventurous for everyone. We’ve also selected a few gift ideas that are unique and memorable for the bridesmaids to go along with each of these exciting outings!

DIY Lingerie Party

5883103858_9ccf418d05Image via: 1


You know you want to try this!

This is a perfect chance to bring the girls together and make something gorgeous for the bride to wear on her wedding night. Plan a night where all the bridesmaids meet to hand make cute little under things. It’s a fantastic way to get your DIY on, bond with your group, and have fun making something beautiful! Each bridesmaid can bring sequins, beads, or special fabrics, use catalogs for inspiration and the internet for “how-to” tutorials. You can even get silly and help the bride find ways to model each handmade under-thing for the groom! The bride will have handmade gifts by her bridesmaids and the girls will help make her wedding night special. Just don’t forget the wine. Or the chocolate.

A perfect gift for this sexy occasion is our Bustier Cookiecookie_boustier This is customizable to suit  the colors you wish and we can personalize it for you to make it more memorable. Wrap them in cellophane bags and tie them with ribbon to make this a super cute and delicious gift!



 glamping41Image via: 1

“Glamping” is certainly an unconventional idea for a bachelorette party. But that doesn’t mean it has to be rough! The latest craze is “Glamourous Camping” or “Glamping” for short.  It’s a luxurious way to experience the outdoors without sacrificing the comforts you can’t live without. Glamping is a fresh and creative way to celebrate the last days of being single, so for the offbeat bride who loves the outdoors, this is the way to go.

For the bridesmaids joining on this excursion, an exquisite gift is the “The Cosmopolitan” Monogrammed Cosmetic Travel Bag


Fill it with necessities such as hand sanitizer, facial wipes, bug spray, small water bottle, sunscreen, lip balm, a mini hairbrush and a compact mirror to complete the surprise for each bridesmaid.


At Home Spa Day


So everyone loves a facial, right? How about hosting an at home spa day for the bridesmaids! Why spend hundreds of dollars on fancy facials and manicures when you can do the same at home? Make a relaxing playlist to set the mood, gather some DIY facials, scrubs, and manicure ideas to pamper each other and get going. If you have access to a pool where you live, lounge by the pool to soak up some sun and get a nice tan before the big day. As the day progresses turn the at home spa day into a sleepover! Reminisce about the old days, watch scary movies, order take out, make some cocktails and enjoy each other’s company. It’s a great opportunity to relax and unwind and bond with the girls.

A great gift idea for this home retreat would be a gorgeous clutch filled with goodies. Hit up Forever 21 (or your favorite boutique) and grab a clutch for each bridesmaid and fill them with some of our Beauty Essentials!

Winery Tour

 Touring wineries and spending the weekend in a Bed and Breakfast sounds like such a fun and relaxing idea for a bachelorette party for the Bride who loves wine. We all know her.

Some wineries offer a wide variety of activities for groups besides wine tasting and touring so there’s always something to do. Enjoy the local cuisine and experience the local culture while you’re bonding with your group and make it bachelorette party to cherish forever.

For the bridesmaids enjoying the wine country the perfect gift is the Personalized Stemless Wine Glass


Personalize this gift with the date of the bachelorette party and choose from a wide variety of designs to suit the bride’s personality. They will always remember their time with you in wine country each time they pour a glass.




How many times do we have a chance to be tourists in our own cities? Gather the bridesmaids, rent a swanky hotel room in the nearest big city and tour the town as a tourist would! Take tourist photos at all the town’s popular hotspots that you always overlook, eat and drink at the town’s hottest bar you keep saying you’ll go to, take that bay cruise you’ve been dying to get on, and take advantage of the hotels amenities! Play drinking games and guessing games in the hotel room, and give the bride advice to keep it hot and sexy with her new hubby. It’s a chance to enjoy your city in a new way.

A perfect gift for this getaway is our Martini Design Bottle Stopper for all the bottles you’ll be taking to the hotel!
