A Boho and Sparkly Friendsgiving for the Girls

Oh, you thought we were done with Thanksgiving posts?!  Boy were you wrong, we’re just starting!  Yesterday’s Friendsgiving was for the adults, today’s is for the little ladies!  I designed and styled this boho sparkly Friendsgiving with the help of a few of my talented friends like Wild Child Party and Blot & Dot.  I had my adorable god daughter Edie as inspiration of course, and let her enjoy with a few buddies!  Keep scrolling to see all of the pretty photos by Meredith of Zoom Theory and see more on 100LayerCakelet today

Let’s start with the invite, because, well, I always do!  I sent Cindy from Blot & Dot my mood board for this shoot and she just nailed it!  I love the copper she used on the invite and how it pairs well with the Erika tabletop collection from Harlow & Grey.  And how cute is little Parker showing it off?!

Let’s start with that balloon installation… I know, I know, it’s kind of becoming a thing with us, but I just can’t resist!  Wild Child Party is just so fun to work with and their balloon installations just make a party!  And when you mix in pampas grass, one of my absolute favorites, it takes it next level!

When I saw this collection from Harlow & Grey, I knew I wanted to make something pretty with it.  A girly friends giving was just the fit.  Here Come the Blooms played off of the pinks and the copper with the florals and they complimented the setting perfectly!  Blot & Dot did the abstract shaped place cards, and we even added more macrame with mini pieces made by Robyn Parker.

Ahhhhh, that pampas!

And the Fall leaves!!!  I love this time of year!

Now, on to the cutest little girlies!!!  These girls are decked out in cute outfits from Sweet Threads, mainly Paush Mini – an in house brand that we can’t get enough of!  Hey Girl!  I’m Thankful!  And like most best girlfriends, we’re all thankful for cute clothes, duh!  Check out all of their cute outfits, seriously I die and want to be them…

You can find Mikaela’s pretty dress here

Freyja’s adorable jumpsuit here…  Which may be my favorite!

Little Parker’s cute romper here

This little jumpsuit is by Harlow & Jade, comes in mommy sizes too… I may have to invest!! But I think it’s probably cutest on Miss River….

And last but not least is Edie’s stunner of a dress here

These girls had such a fun time playing dress up and just being girls together!  Can I do this with my friends?!  Jeez!

Now, you know I didn’t forget about the desserts!  And these are next level, specifically that stunner of a cake!  Beverly’s Bakery created something so beautiful, we really didn’t want to touch it!  But of course, we did!  And the cookies were adorable with our copper and navy detail continued and wording like “friends” and “thankful”.  Needless to say, the girls went nuts!

These cuties are just too much, and it got a little chilly, so obviously they needed their furs…

I need a beret in my life, but will never look nearly this cute!

And that’s a wrap! So much fun with these little ladies!!

A Modern & Simple California Outdoor Friendsgiving

One of the best things about living in California is the fact that we get to be outside all year round. Including the special days like Thanksgiving and Christmas! Often times you can find us barbecuing on these holidays! Each year my friends and I like to get together and have a Friendsgiving, it’s such a great kick off to the holiday season. This year we took advantage of the great weather and my friend Kevy’s newly renovated backyard! It was the perfect setting to gather us all and enjoy some delicious food and drinks.

This dinner is also featured on Style Me Pretty Living today!

Miss Multee created the gorgeous invite, her hand writing is beyond beautiful and set the tone for the evening perfectly.

The night started with the cheese board of all cheese boards from Colette’s Catering.  That is a great way to start a party if you ask me!  One Hope wine helped us pair each course with the perfect wine as well.  Wine and cheese, that makes everyone happy!

For the details we turned to Olive & Blooms for florals and again Miss Multee for menus and place cards. We used the colors of the tabletop and added in some deep berries and copper to finish it off. The beautiful florals lined the table and really brought a fall feel to the event, with a fresh and modern take. And everybody kept talking about the beautiful hand written menus, they were an ombre gold to copper that perfectly shined all night.

All of the pretty pillows and cozy blankets are from The Garage Collective, a local shop in Laguna Beach.  They have an amazing collection of home goods that I want through-out my entire house!

One of the things we don’t like about these get togethers is the clean up. I came across L’Entramise, a beautiful disposable line that was perfect for our table setting. Their pieces have a sleek and pretty look and are so well crafted. The best part was at the end of the night we could just toss everything away and not worry about the dishes!

Now, let’s party!!!  Pop some bottles!!

Love these girls!!  Friend time doesn’t happen nearly as much as I wish it did, but when it does it’s always fun!

Our friends at Colette’s Catering designed a menu with a modern take on Thanksgiving dinner. We had a delicious salad, roasted veggies and squab instead of turkey. They also put together a delicious dessert that had us all happy at the end of the. night.

Each year at this time I get a bit sentimental, it means another year is coming to an end. But ending it with great friends is always a good idea, and that’s why Friendsgiving is so special.

Cheers!!

Hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your friends as well!

Jacquelyn

Let’s Celebrate & Learn about Dia de Los Muertos with Beijos

One of the things I love about raising my kids is exposing them to different cultures.  I was raised by an immigrant, my dad was born in Portugal, and my sister and I were brought up immersed in that culture.  Along with that, my parents would try to expose us to as much diversity as possible, which I always appreciated and loved.  My best friend and business partner Leah is the same way, but was raised Mexican.  With the new Disney Pixar movie Coco,  which is based on the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, we were even more inspired to introduce our kids to this tradition.  Leah, being Mexican, is much more familiar with it so her and her kiddos shared that part of their culture with us!  
 
The holiday, known to most Americans as the Day of the Dead, and the movie inspired a table I designed.  It was bright, colorful and full of life!  I teamed up with some amazing vendors like Wild Child, Rooted & Wild, Prim & Pixie, Sweet & Saucy, The Daydream Republic and The Confetti Bar to make it all come to fruition.  My favorite though, and I think the kid’s would agree, was having each child’s face painted.  Couture Paintings had everyone in awe with the intricate and beautiful creations on each little one’s face, they were each unique and equally amazing!
 
It was a fun party combined with learning and diversity.  Most of the kids are from different backgrounds, Mexican, Portuguese, Spanish, Moroccan, Irish, and German to name a few!  We looked at it as a way to teach and gather a group to make learning fun!  Thank you to Leah and her kiddos for sharing your culture with us!  We can’t wait for Coco and for our kids to learn more about the Mexican culture.

Let’s start with probably my favorite invite ever by Prim and Pixie!  From the colors, to the lining and all of that detail, they just nailed it!  Not surprised, they do every time!  I just sprinkled some custom confetti from The Confetti Bar and it’s all sorts of cute!

How cute are these little ladies?!  Like I said, everyone loved having their faces painted by Couture Paintings!  Owner Sara Sanchez has studied Day of the Dead facial paintings and had something fun and different for each kiddo.  These little ladies are wearing dresses from Gunn & Swain and the prettiest headbands from The Daydream Republic!  I mean, how cute can you get?!

This is sweet Avalon, daughter of Carissa who owns JL Designs, The Daydream Republic and Little Style Collective

How cute is little Emerald?!  Youngest daughter of the one and only Jesi Haack!

Here’s pretty Annie, daughter of our favorite Jolie, owner of Wild Child Party

And here’s the three wild and crazy amigos!  Even the boys got in on the fun!  Edie is wearing a dress her grandparents brought her back form Mexico!

Loving my god daughter Edie Lola, she is growing up and getting better and better!  Leah, you’re doing a good job my friend!

Here’s my wild man Court being silly!  His favorite color is red so he got this fun style!

And sweet Reagan, son of Emily Sims, half the duo of Magic Kingdom Mamas!  This guy got along just fine with my Court, two wild boys!!

And now, for the set up…  I  have to say, I was really excited to do this party, and seeing it come to life made it that much more satisfying!  I love, love, love this set up!!  The colors are so fun and vibrant, it’s just so FUN!!!

If you haven’t been able to tell, we love a good balloon installation from Wild Child, I mean, who doesn’t?!  It just makes such a statement!  I don’t know when this trend is going to end, but I’m fine with it hanging around longer!  Rooted & Wild also killed it with the amazing florals!!  That girl just gets it right every time!  Also… That sugar skull pinata?!  It’s basically the cutest thing ever.

It never hurts to add some disco balls into the mix, every party could use one!

For the place settings I did terra cotta tiles and Prim and Pixie added each child’s name.  Wild Child has these adorable sugar skull plates by Meri Meri that were obviously perfect!  I sprinkled the custom confetti from The Confetti Bar again and some pretty petals and marigolds as well.

This girl!!!  I love her…

Look at these stirrers from Prim & Pixie!  I’m obsessed….

I love the combination for florals Rooted & Wild did, it’s just the best!

I don’t do kid’s parties without desserts… How else would we bribe them?!  Haha… But seriously… Sweet & Saucy Shop does it again!  They took my inspiration and what they did was magic, truly magic!  Prim & Pixie completed it all with the adorable sign – it’s all just so good!!!  Makes me giddy looking at it!

The best!!!

I’m all about these colors!!

I think it’s safe to say these kiddos had a blast!  And we learned and celebrated another culture while we were at it!  These moments are so special with our kids, watching them have fun and grow at the same time.  Even though this may seem silly and little, I know in the long run talking to them and exposing to them to these things will have an impact on them.  I know, because it did with me!

Thank you Leah, Edie & Isla for sharing this part of your heritage and culture with us!  We should all instill a love for our backgrounds with our kids!

How do you share your culture with your children?!  I’d love to hear!!

Alicia + Bryan – San Luis Obispo Wedding

Leah and I have been dying to share this gorgeous wedding for a few months now.  In August we were lucky enough to be a party of Ali & Bryan’s San Luis Obispo wedding.  It brought us back to one of our favorite venues, Biddle Ranch Vineyard.  This place has upgraded since our last wedding there, they now have a gorgeous tasting room and the property’s greens have flourished.  It is such a gorgeous spot in one of the prettiest places in California.

Ali was a dream bride, organized, trusting and had a great eye for style.  We loved working with her every step of the way and her family and friends were equally amazing.  The day went off without a hitch and reliving it through Megan Welker’s stunning photos makes me nostalgic.  Think simple and clean style with a dash of rustic, keep scrolling to see it all, you’ll want to get your pin button ready!

Also featured today on 100LayerCake

One of the many things I love about working with Megan Welker is her attention to detail and the fact that she over shoots.  Meaning, you will not find one thing not shot by this woman on your special day… She covers EVERYTHING!  It’s honestly amazing!  And she gets multiple shots of it all, so you really feel like you’re in that moment.

I helped a bit on the styling, but she shot all of the details so perfectly for Ali & Bryan.  And what pretty details they were….

More on this piece of amazingness later… I am really loving that leather jacket trend for brides this year!

Getting ready for your big day is a big part of the fun!  These are where big memories are made.  All of those feelings of excitement are tingling in your body and all of the stress floats away.  This is your time to celebrate with your wedding party and enjoy the day!  Plus, it’s such a special time with your immediate family.  Ali had her mom and sister helping her get ready, their close bond can be felt through the photos of the day…

There’s something amazing about a groom and his groomsmen in tuxes… They just look so dapper!  Bryan played the part of the handsome groom quite well!

Aww, the first look.  Another aspect of wedding photography that Megan is a master of.  I love the way Bryan looks at Ali in these photos, he is in awe of her!!  We can’t recommend a first look enough, it’s so amazing to have that private moment with your soon to be spouse in private.  It always ends up being so special…

Clover & Branch is responsible for the breathtaking florals through-out the wedding.  Ali’s style was very classic and simple.  We did greenery along with white florals and the look is just so elegant.  This greenery trend is truly amazing, I wouldn’t mind if it stuck around for a while…


Here’s Ali and her beautiful bridesmaids!  

And can’t forget the groomsmen!  I always think groomsmen photos are so funny, guys can never make a straight face when they are all together.  They just are having too much fun!

On to the ceremony!  It was a really beautiful day, not too hot or cold at all, just perfect.  The scene was set with gorgeous garland and guests were given white rose petals for the big exit.  Which, when you see the photo below, you will definitely want to put in your back pocket for wedding ideas… Such an epic shot!

See what I mean!!!

The table design was made for Biddle Ranch Vineyard.  Doesn’t everything just flow so perfectly?!  The greenery, the clean whites, the rustic tables… It’s just dreamy!!  We loved the simplicity of the clear glassware, white china and the touch of metallic with the gold flatware.  Votives were scattered through-out the tables for that romantic touch.  Courtney from Poppy Jack did the calligraphy for the place cards and a sprig of olive branch was placed on each plate for a finishing touch!

I seriously can’t get enough of the olive trees…

Ali’s dad made this escort display board!  Isn’t that amazing?!  He loves both of his daughters so much… Leah and I were so excited for his speech and it proved to be a tear jerker like we thought.  There’s nothing like that father/daughter relationship.  Poppy Jack did the calligraphy again here…

Ok, if you ever plan on getting married in the San Luis Obispo area you MUST use Paper Cake Events for your desserts.  This girl is beyond talented and we loved everything that she created, plus it was delicious!  I mean, those cookies… they are the prettiest!!

Kicking off an incredible night with some amazing toasts and lots of love and laughter!

Sunset photos are key to any wedding, you get such pretty shots!!  And the bride and groom are a little bit more relaxed and ready to party!  Remember that amazing custom black leather jacket?!  Well, here it is in all it’s glory!  Ali could not look more beautiful!

And now for the dance party!!!  Dart DJ’s had everyone dancing all night!!

Such an amazing wedding!  We are so lucky to be a part of these momentous occasions!!  Thank you Ali & Bryan for sharing this day with us!!

A Bright & Colorful Unicorn 5th Birthday Party for Alex

I get so excited when a mom reaches out to us for their child’s birthday.  You can sense the excitement in their voice and you know they want it to be so special.  I relate completely because I want to do the same for my kids!  Alex’s mom Karen, a friend of mine and Leah’s, had been planning Alex’s birthday but was so busy with her three kids she needed some help.  We were happy to oblige!  Especially when she told us the theme – Unicorns!

It’s a theme that we haven’t tackled yet and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on!  Especially since Karen’s number one priority was having a real life unicorn there!  Keep scrolling to see all of the amazing photos by Alison Bernier.

Also featured on Inspired By This today!

It was fun playing with a rainbow color scheme, but we obviously had to go heavier on the pink because it’s so much fun and the birthday girl loves it!

The tabletop had unicorn plates and unicorn wands for each guest, along with the most beautiful flowers by Rooted & Wild.  We had the birthday girl sitting in a pretty peacock chair also adorned with gorgeous flowers.

Courtney from Poppy Jack created rainbow placemats and bright pink signage used through-out the party that added the prettiest pop!

We love setting up fun things for kiddos to do at parties.  I mean, you’ve gotta keep them busy and happy so the parents can enjoy themselves too!  Courtney also created these custom coloring pages for Alex and her guests.  Having something custom and simple like this adds such a great detail, it may not seem big but your guests will notice!
Remember how we said the parents should have fun to?!  Well let me introduce you to the bar… A kid party essential!  Poppy Jack created the unicorn stir sticks and funny signage.  Add in some pretty florals by Rooted & Wild and some delicious margaritas and you’ve got yourselves some happy parents!

Now it wouldn’t be a kid’s party by Beijos without our friends from Wild Child Party!  I swear, this has been the year of the balloon installations!  And we’re not mad about it one bit.  This one just makes me smile, the colors have the best pop!  Pun intended… 

We framed the dessert set up with these bad boys, and wait till you see all of the desserts.  They’re displayed on the most amazing shelf from Witty Rentals also!!

Ok… So, Sweet and Saucy Shop really blew my mind on this one!  They created all the magical treats any kid’s heart would desire!  Major eye candy for you all right here…

More fun details!  A pretty welcome sign by Poppy Jack adorned with the prettiest blooms from Rooted & Wild.  Even more balloons, oh, and a unicorn…

We love Alex’s headband from The Daydream Republic!  She is our go to for all little girl’s parties!!

Baby sister needs to get in on the fun too!

The rest is all just cute things that I can’t get enough of! I mean, just so much cuteness, so so much…

These girls!  Living the life and looking good doing it!

Happy Friday!!
