The Daly’s Ale with Owl’s Brew Radler


I don’t know about you, but this week went by soooo slow! Maybe it’s cause the hubby is gone, we are in full swing of back to school, and I have a sick one on hand but this Mama is so excited that it’s Friday! Tonight it’s all about relaxing, hanging with the little ones, and treating myself to a cocktail. With Fall officially here, I like to enjoy a beer cocktail every once in a while. I’m a big wino, but fall just screams beer to me. Maybe cause it’s the start of football season? Especially with my recent date with the hubby beer tasting, a beer cocktail is what I’m craving today!

I recently discovered Owl’s Brews Radler, and they are officially in my Fall cocktail routine. Not only is their packaging on point, but their beer and tea are real ingredients and none of that processed and concentrated crap you see. Yes, beer and tea all in one drink! Check it out tea lovers, this is so meant for you.  Sticking with my blondie fam, I’m loving The Blondie, its a wheat beer paired with organic English breakfast, lemon peel, lemon and lime juice. Oh, and two hot babes are behind this beer company which I love!

Simple. Yummy. Pretty.

Beer Tasting with the Hubby at Fieldworks Brewery

To keep a marriage solid and healthy, it needs to be worked on, and the best way to do that is date your hubby! You gotta keep that spark alive, right?! These days, that seems nearly impossible with our schedules. Between traveling, and all the kid’s activities, where do you find the time? Plus, moving away and losing all our sitters, how the heck are we gonna do this!? What did we do to ourselves!! A day date is what we were able to work out. I wanted to do something that would excite my husband, and beer tasting would give me major wifey points. Luckily for me, there are a ton of craft brewery places around our new stomping grounds. I discovered Fieldworks Brewery on Instagram and fell in love with this fun hip place.

Being spontaneous and skipping out on work creates this fun, romantic, and impulsive time spent together, kinda like it was before kids. I mean don’t make a habit of it, but once in awhile is totally doable. We headed to Midtown to see what kind of trouble we could get ourselves into. I immediately fell in love with Fieldworks Brewery. I mean cmon just look at that wall! Then, I discovered they had a tropical pale ale called Island Time, and I was sold! If I was gonna drink any kind of beer, this would be the place to do it at. 

Fieldwork Brewing Company is a craft brewery founded in Berkeley, CA with a focus on exceptional, honest beer-making. Fieldwork brews are served in Berkeley, Napa, Sacramento and San Mateo Taprooms, and at the finest craft beer-focused establishments in northern California.  If you are in the Northern California area, you will definitely want to stop by one of their taprooms, check out all their beers here.

We had the best time chatting with each other, tasting some new flavors, and getting to spend some alone time without being interrupted every 10 seconds. We made a promise to each other, to try to do this at least once a month.

Now, back to reality…

Heaven Sent – A Baby Boy Shower for Speidi – Featured in US Weekly

Lucky us had the pleasure of planning and designing Speidi’s baby shower.  Yup, that’s right, Spencer & Heidi Pratt.  We were contacted in July to work with Heidi and she told us she wanted the theme to be Heaven Sent.  Immediately I thought of whites and baby blues, a very ethereal feel.  On her must have list were cotton candy, a photo booth and games for her guests.  It was so fun to plan a celebrity baby shower and we are so thrilled that we were featured in US Weekly for it!!  Like seriously, pinch me!!

Keep scrolling to see the details…

Heidi was really a dream to work with and beyond sweet.  You can tell her and Spencer are so excited to be parents.  All of her family and friends were beyond excited for them as well.  It was awesome to see the support they have around them!

We had some great support from our fellow vendors that made this event happen with us!  We couldn’t do it without them!

Adore Folklore brought all the pretty rentals, they seriously transformed the entire space!  Wild Child Party did the amazing balloon installation, of course!  And our friend MV Florals did the beautiful floral arrangements.  I stuck with that ethereal vibe through the colors and florals, and I really love how it turned out!

The bar was one of my favorite elements of the party!  The ombré sign is by Meghann Miniello, she also did all of the calligraphy through-out the party.  I’m still obsessed with that tile bar from Adore Folklore too, so so good!!!

All of the tabletop is from Borrowed Blu, their marble collection is so insane, I have been dying to play with it!!  All of their pretties pair so well with MV Florals arrangements, right?

Yup, that’s another iPhone shot below, one of the three photos I took that day, but I love that angle ;)

Colette’s Catering always goes above and beyond for our events and this was no exception!  Guests were treated to delicious and beautiful food, along with cute waiters, haha!

Desserts were obviously a must!  Sweet & Saucy made our baby boy dreams come true right here!  We also had cotton candy but unfortunately, no photos of it!!  Swoonful Cotton Candy had the sweetest set up though, and we loved their fun flavors!

The photo booth was definitely the high light of the day though!  Foto Vibe Photo Station had the prettiest backdrop that MV Florals added to, and the cutest props for a baby shower!!  They even do GIFS of your photos which everyone loved!!  It was definitely the hot spot of the party and we think every party should have a photo booth – they’re not just for weddings anymore!!

You know we had to jump in there as well!  We can never turn down a good photo booth at a party!!  Here we are with our main girl boss Sarah from Colette’s Catering, she’s the best!!

It was such a pretty event that we feel honored to have been a part of!!  Head to US Weekly for more of the details!!

Treat Yourself 2nd Birthday Party for Zizi

Today I am sharing the cutest 2nd birthday we designed and planned last month.  This party will have you very envious of Miss Zizi, our birthday girl.  Her mom wanted a day with all of Zizi’s favorite things.  Swimming in the pool, getting pampered and eating ice cream.  Talk about a dream day for any girl, no matter what age you are!!

We mixed in some of Zizi’s favorite colors – rose gold!!  A girl after my own heart!  And butterflies of course, because what Zizi wants, Zizi gets!!  The theme turned into “treat yourself”, as in treat yourself to some spa time and then treat yourself to some ice cream.  Are you jealous like I said you’d be?!  I am, and for those wondering, this is exactly what I want to do for my birthday next year!  Ha!

We’ll come back to those ADORABLE lounge chairs, but first let’s start with the invite!  Courtney from Poppy Jack took Zizi’s love of butterflies, mixed it with pretty pinks and a romantic feel for the perfect invitation sent to each little lady.  And how about that cute little custom stamp of Miss Zizi herself enjoying some spa time!?  Just a little taste for our guests to see how much fun they were going to have!

Now let’s take a look at the table…  When I first designed this party for Zizi I began with the color scheme.  Her mom Mahsa had great ideas as far as colors like black and white and pinks, but I also brought up using navy and rose gold and she loved it!  From there I started looking at rentals and found the perfect black table along with baby ghost chairs.  Then I practically died because they were about the cutest thing ever!!  Thank you Teak & Lace for having such cute kids inventory!!!  I have been wanting to do place cards as stickers on ghost chairs and this was my opportunity!!

Poppy Jack made the adorable butterfly wooden placemats and drink stirrers, and the rose gold tabletop was all from Meri Meri!  The gorgeous watercolor floral napkins are by Hostess Haven and the amazing florals were by Palms & Petals.

You may have noticed the insane balloon install by my favorite friends Wild Child Party.  That’s another place I added that rose gold, how amazing are those balloons?!  Adorned with pretty blooms by Palms & Petals of course!!  

They also brought their mad balloon skills to the backyard for our dessert set up and beauty station!

Speaking of beauty… Each of our lovely ladies were greeted with a custom robe to wear after their pool fun and for pamper time!  We were obsessed with the lounge chairs Mama Mahsa found on Amazon!!  We just had Palms & Petals adorn them with some pretty florals to make them even better!

Last but not least, a fun ice cream set up for the girls to make their own sundaes!!  We had custom cups and ice cream cones full of flowers for decor!  Plus loads of toppings to make any ice cream lover happy!!  Then there was the amazing ice cream cake by Great Dane Bakery to top it off!

Everyone had so much fun and were serenaded by the beautiful Victoria Bailey as well!  She is such a talent and so great with kiddos, you should reach out to her if you ever want some musical entertainment for your littles!

Hope you like this one as much as us!  Special thanks to all the vendors who helped make it pretty!!
