Auree's Modern Woodland Themed First Birthday. For moms who want to create an affordable DIY teepee: You can get 4 long wood dowels from Home Depot. Use thick twine or rope to tie the top after you position it. I bought a few yards of chiffon fabric and draped it over. Super easy and i probably spent less than $20. 🌿Styling and Florals by @madebydavinakim Photography by @alissanoellephotography Name Sign by @letterstou Table Top decor rentals @etablirshop Cakes by @candyapple_cakes Cake stand rentals @sweetleemade

Giving floral arrangements a try & it is not as easy as it looks. I have the utmost respect for all florists (esp, the planners who offer floral services) who have to deal with flowers that are perishable. Not only does it require a lot of labor to keep the flowers fresh...but I also learned by watching @theflowerbyyoori that a florist has to be good at balancing on a ladder while using both hands to hang stuff. πŸ˜… Thanks to her I'm getting better at climbing and covering green foam parts. Love you Yoori!! A small sneak peak from @haleigh_ji Auree's #firstbirthdayparty back in November.

Isaiah's First Birthday - so much fun bringing @ngeepak 's children's book themed party to life! Loved how the pretty decor pieces at @twentyeightoc gave it a very cozy cabin feel to it. So we decided to add old books, plaid details and Isaiah's name sign made with old pages from vintage books to complete the look. Thanks to @lauranumeroff and her books - we were able to come up with the cutest desserts by @sweetleemade @keeks319 / Cakes and desserts by @sweetnsaucyshop / πŸ“· @mamazcookn / special thanks to @audreywon for all your help!

The most perfect cake for a Children's book-themed #firstbirthday party at @twentyeightoc - topped with a must-have @letterstou "one" topper in my favorite metallic shade, copper. Quote by Winnie the Pooh / Cake by @hello_cakesy @sweetnsaucyshop

Davina Kim - Irvine, CA (@madebydavinakim)

Yes, this is a smash cake. πŸ’› I can't get over how perfect this cake was! I am obsessed with this shade of royal hunter green these days. A little sad it had to be smashed into but baby Arden enjoyed it so much. And seriously in love with those watercolor sugar cookies. @sweetleemade

Yesterday, an amazing team of vendors came together (went above and beyond) to create this whimsical, romantic Neverland themed #firstbirthday at @figandolive. Big πŸ‘ to Arden's mama, who was a mastermind behind this party and also spent sleepless nights crafting some of these beautiful details together.

Every detail of this wedding had its place and a special meaning to my dream clients Jennifer and Ben at @smokyhollowstudios The different foliage placed on each plate were carefully hand picked by the bride and groom...at their favorite date spot.. Central Park NYC. I still can't get over it! Not to mention the amazing @freepeople installations recycled and suspended from the ceiling. Most importantly, I felt so much love between the bride, groom, & close friends and family. It was an unforgettable night. As crazy as it sounds, I would do it all over again. #wedding #weddingstyle #chalkart

These stained wood goodies to go on a ✈️ to Seattle. Special thanks to the moms who have been supporting my work over there. ❀️ Plans to open up my #etsy shop to sell custom made welcome signs in a couple of months. #firstbirthday #woodstain #moderncalligraphy #handwritten #handpainted #acrylic #woodland #kidsparty #welcomesign

I am so in love with this #firstbirthday #letlovegrow #invitation by @thethingshannahloves & ended up framing it for the event. Not only was it pretty, but it served as a main design template for everything! #imafan

A sneak peak to all the beautiful photos By @shootsandgigglesphoto that I will be posting all week long. Can't wait to share the creativity of all the vendors who helped make Nathan's 1st Bday so special!
