Safari-Themed Baby Shower for Jami

I have the pleasure of having such great friends here in Savannah! One of them is expecting a new little bundle of joy, Baby Liam!!! Now there is one thing I LOVE doing and that's hosting showers! All of us rolled up our sleeves and got to work on this fabulous jungle-themed shower for Jami! Her nursery is Jungle friends from Pottery Barn so we only thought this was appropriate! After a couple of weeks of the hubby's growing  honey-do list, we were able to make some of the decor changes to the house in time!

Here are the details!

The invitation

inspired by her nursery bedding from Pottery Barn:

Food signs adorned the delicious dishes our hostesses prepared:

Loved the Martha Stewart tissue ball kits at Michaels!

Of course we had to serve bellinis! Baby bellinis for the mommy-to-be!

The living room ready for guests!

Monogram utensil bands completed the table along with our always fabulous favors from Two Smart Cookies!

The framed monogram that all of the guests signed. Jami was able to take it home in a frame for the nursery! Also, welcome your guests with a sign on the front door!

The fabulous hostesses with the stylish mommy-to-be!

Unique-themed Wedding - East Meets West { Savannah, Georgia }

I had the pleasure of working with Andrea and Jarrod on their Wedding Paper Wardrobe! 
We designed everything from the invitations, programs, wishing cards, placecards, menu cards, paper cones and escort cards. Check out the beautiful photography by Allison Reisz. Her style is very fashion-forward and very dramatic! Check out her website at www.allisonreiszphotography.com 

All of the paper products were inspired by mehndi art and the custom wedding logo using the couple's initials.

Fashion Friday : I'm loving....

his preppy and fabulous BOW RING from my new favorite jewelry line, kate spade.
I just discovered shoes from DVF at BleuBelle Boutique and you wouldn't believe the comfort level. As much as I love a Tory Burch shoe, I have to say these blow her out of the water comfort-wise. I have this one in black and I could run a marathon in them! Leave it to DVF to create a shoe made for the woman's body - that is what she's famous for - hello, the wrap dress of all things!

Many of you might recognize this dress in white on the cover of the SATC2 Posters  on Sarah Jessica Parker. I recently splurged on the cornflower blue version and wow - it's a stunner in person! Dress by Halston Heritage, purchased at BleuBelle Boutique.

Ordered this from kate spade and let me just tell you that the quality and craftsmanship is impeccable.  Definitely worse the price tag if you plan wearing it for years to come.
