We used our own Jacquelyn Kazas’ husband Nate’s surfboard creations for our shoot!  He shaped these boards and they just happened to be the perfect Summer colors for us…

IMG_2847 Shop Bando has the cutest little goodies for any time of year, we loved this beach bag, it’s girly yet practical – hello, it keeps your drinks cool!  Perfect for any lady!!  We stocked it with a few goodies – more on that tomorrow – but here we have it with our favorite Gunn & Swain blanket and Salt Sunnies!

We also love us some Bando tumblers!!  These are good for any time of year but especially in these HOT Summer months it’s great to stay hydrated all day long…  This print is one of our favorites!!

Of course we are all about style, and a beach outing with your girls is no exception!!  We turned to our favorite local shop, Prism Boutique for these sweet ensembles!  The theme was boho meets California cool, with a bit of a retro touch…  All girls wore Salt Optics Sunglasses to complete their looks!

So in love with this Flynn Skye romper… Such a fun Summer piece!  And I think I need that Cleobella leather fringe bag ASAP!!

My Dad is Rad because….

Ending our fathers day week with one rad gift that all dads will love. TRUST us! Careful…. they might shed a tear or two. Father’s day is the day to shout from the rooftop how much you love your dad.We sat down with our little ones, and asked them why is your dad rad? The kids loved telling us why they have the best daddy….

Brown Fox Calligraphy turned their answers into an awesome and RAD wooden sign for our little beijinhos to give their daddies for fathers day! Check it out, and check out all those proud daddies! This is a great DIY idea that you can do with your kids on any element to gift up.

Happy Father’s day to the three most patient, understanding, loving, dedicated, and RAD dads!

It doesn’t get any better when you have a song written for you… Critter is one lucky little dude.

meganwelker-beijos-raddad-20

Don’t just stop at dads…. grandparents are just as rad… if not more!

meganwelker-beijos-raddad-25

We brought in proud Avô to show off his gift from the his little Critter. How cute are these two!

meganwelker-beijos-raddad-7

Critter wants his sign back! he forgot a few things to tell Dad!

Here is how you can create one!

yasminsarai-beijos-fathersday-40

Buy a piece of wood from your local hardware store. Cut to your desired size. We did a 12 inch square.

Stain with your color of choice, we did a semi-transparent slate color and water it down to have it be light so you still can see the natural grain of the wood.

Do a couple coats to achieve the color you desire.

Then you are all set!

We brought in Brianne from Brown Fox Calligraphy to create our wooden gifts, we went with a retro style handwriting since this for the dads. It gives it a masculine look, not so girly. She did an awesome job!

Thanks Brianne!

Father’s Day Brunch

Continuing our week dedicated to Dads, we recently styled a Father’s Day brunch full of succulents, air plants, indigo and copper touches!!!  It’s featured on Inspired By This today, but here are some more details…

Our tag line for the day is Dad You’re Rad and it’s our exact feelings to our husbands & Dads, thank you for all that you do to support us!!

All Photos by the lovely Annie Vovan

We were inspired to throw an at home family brunch to celebrate all the Dad’s in our lives and started with that popular color of choice lately… Indigo!!  It’s no secret as to how we love Boho Pillow, so we thought, why not do placemats with her amazing fabric!?  We fell in love with this mud cloth fabric that was the perfect indigo and the design process went from there…

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-012
I threw this brunch at my home which is close to the beach and when your hubby loves to surf, you tend to get some inspiration from the ocean…  That’s the direction we went when we described what we wanted for paper goods to our friends at Prim & Pixie, and we love what they created!!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-021

We turned to the gorgeous Bloom Babes for the florals… Father’s Day florals can be tricky… You don’t want anything too sweet, you want the right touch of masculine but still pretty to look at, we think they nailed it!!!  We love how the white florals mixed with the air plants & succulents look!!

And the china + glassware is from our girl Cassandra of Borrowed Blu… We used woods, indigos, whites and coppers to create the perfect tables cape any Dad would love!!!

FullSizeRender Little details are everything ;) IMG_2799 AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-080 The Duo Studio created this amazing board with our tagline… They also created these amazing wood serving boards!!!  We love them and plan on using them for basically every gathering we plan on this Summer!!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-035 Daddy’s need their coffee in the AM!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-040 AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-075 We love these wood boards so much you guys!!!  The Duo Studio really nailed it on them!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-082 AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-062 AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-058 They also created these stunning marble coasters we had at each place setting!! We are obsessed!!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-077 Prim & Pixie created this sticker signage for us to use on our wall, another little surprise for Daddy and a reminder as to how much we love him!

AnnieVovanPhotography_BeijosBrunch-005 Now time to eat!!! Yummy Waffle BLAT’s for Dad!

Beijos Families on Fathers Day

Since it’s the week leading up to Fathers Day, we thought we’d share these fun little shoots we did for the special day with our families last year.  We each brainstormed on what our hubbies would love to do, and here’s what we came up with…

For the Kazas Family, it was an intimate little picnic on the grass leading up to the beach.  They have lunch here often in the very scenic Corona Del Mar.
