My mom has a sweet obsession with hens and roosters AND polka dots! I can't believe I've never thought to make that her birthday theme this year. The day started with an amazing Jazz brunch over at Nolas in downtown where Sharon Cline was performing her sultry love songs and Diana Krall covers. Some of you that went to our wedding will recognize her name as she performed at our ceremony and reception. Brought back a lot of wonderful memories and it just made my moms birthday a lot more special.
The afternoon ended with coffee and treats at home where I dolled up the table for mom. I used the polka dot hen theme together with black, yellow and red for a pop of color. I designed a cute cake topper for the cake as centerpiece and mini hay adorned with ribbon and cookies. As favors the most adorable and delicious polka dot hen cookies by Eat Sweets Pastry were placed on each plate. My mom absolutely loved the cookies and were her favorite part of the table. It was a wonderful day and I'm so blessed we could celebrate together.

I'm loving this new line of goodies for a super fun and awesome baby shower! I've managed to have some time off despite the hectic summer to work on a few new items such as a little man banner, mustache cupcake toppers, centerpiece that can be used as a photo prop too and a sweet little man diaper cake among a simple inspiration of books and libraries! As many of you know Jorge and I are always surrounded by books and what better inspiration than a book theme mustache bash! I love the idea of combining a sort of new hipster look to a vintage environment such as a library for the perfect handsome and smart little man to come! This theme goes to all the young librarians and moms to be! I think the shoot was a success and again many thanks to Ayumi for being the woman behind the magical photos! Check out the eye candy!

Not only the many remodeling projects still going on at our condo but definitely the inspiration behind my new party line of party decor. Tools are everywhere at our home due sweetie's love for DIY remodeling. I don't mind his hobby at all and I'm extremely proud of his work - Jorge really dives into doing whatever it is, whether it be wiring, painting, building bed frames or staining wood floors! He is truly working hard to give me the condo of my dreams and everyday I'm impressed by his passion and willingness to improve our home. So thanks sweetie for all that you do and along the way for inspiring me in my creative work! I didn't have to look very far to find the perfect props for my photo shoot such as peg boards, wood, toolbox and even diamond plating! The little construction hats made everything perfect of a cute 4 year old. I created a diamond sign Happy Birthday banner with dump trucks as accents, cupcake toppers of signs of construction trucks or little trucks themselves, a cake topper and sweetie's favorite - handy tools as favor tags :) All now available over at my Etsy shop.
