So mega excited to finally share my latest project for HGTV !!!
My inspiration for parties and printables usually comes from my kids, and so naturally; I've always gravitate towards all-things-geared-for-little-ones. So it was mega refreshing to be tackling a subject that I don't often get to work on - Weddings!! ♥

In honor of the little British prince, I designed these Keep Calm signs - one for BOY and one for GIRL. Because all babies are princes or princesses in their mommy's eyes! ♥
They'd be perfect signage for a baby shower, gender reveal party or even as decor in the nursery! You can print them on white card-stock and frame them, or on fabric transfer paper to make your own bespoke t-shirts. How regal is that?! :)

According to Marie Claire Magazine, "Monochrome - it's this season's it word." - And often, fashion spills into the every day life. Including our party tables!

They'd be perfect for those lazy summer evenings - Imagine how they'd flicker and glisten on your tabletops or patios. Pretty picture, right?! :)

A party blogger's life dances to the tune of seasons and holidays. Much like a fashion designer, we have to channel the latest trends in the party-o-sphere and be seasons ahead for any blog content, designs and styled parties. Christmas is done in May and Summer in December. Yes, crazy but that's how we roll! ;)
The party featured is her "Flying High" to a new school year by our darling, mega talented contributor Jennifer Carver from Banner Events!
Girl Parties Strawberry Parties Tablescapes 10:22 AMC Riches
I styled this mini desserts table for the July/August edition of the French national magazine, Créative. And when choosing a theme, strawberries just seemed the perfect match for a seasonal and super sweet table!
Needless to say, I LOVED styling it - not only did I get to design and shoot a brand new printable party theme in another language, but I also got to play with fondant. A lot! And fondant is kinda like modelling clay for grown ups ;)
Another fun aspect is that I had baked all the desserts myself (yes, that is fun for me..), from the cookies to the marshmallow pops, the strawberry cookies, cake and cupcakes !! (scroll down to see the recipe links).
The cake really is so simple to decorate and I've already showed how I made the fondant strawberries here. So all that's left to do is the fondant pearl border and the ribbon bunting.

I do have to apologize, but my brain is really into anything "Under The Sea" at the moment. It's totally Crissy's fault, for sparking the madness with her GORGEOUS magical Under The Sea party we showed you last week!
So I couldn't help myself when it came to choosing a party to feature form last month's link party. Besides, this blue-hued 12th birthday party from Events Inspired by Love really caught my eye, and I LOVE all the cute and yet very elegant details.
I know most of you will have your parties prepped and ready for the 4th of July, but I also know there's always a little procrastinator (like me) searching for last minute ideas, so this one is for you! ;)
Head over to Prime Living Magazine to check out the STUNNING 4th of July Party from our Mindy - Creative Juice, which has some super incredibly fab, but also really easy recipe ideas!!
Nearly a decade ago, I (Tess) enrolled in a watercolor class during summer school at my university. I've always considered myself to be a fairly crafty and artistic person, but let me tell you - watercolor painting is HARD!
Making simple designs and blending colors was fun and sort of relaxing, but the detail and artistry that my instructor and some of my fellow classmates used was phenomenal. Needless to say, I knew I was not going to improve all that much in just a short amount of time. However, I definitely left inspired and with a tremendous amount of respect for those that could create beautiful imagery with only a few tools.
Today we're hosting our July link party and again teamed up with the fabulous Celebrations at Home and The Celebration Shoppe - So that means when you link up an idea on this blog, it shows up on theirs too, and of course you have more chances to be featured! Woo-Hoo!! :)
