rock star momma book release party & BOOK GIVEAWAY!

rock star momma book release party & BOOK GIVEAWAY! This past Thursday, Joely Fisher hosted the official book release celebration for Rock Star Momma – a brand new pregnancy fashion and beauty guide by maternity/kids fashion designer and author Skye Hoppus . The party was held at The Treehouse Social Club in L.A. – a very fitting location seeing as it caters to hip moms and kids! Treehouse closed to the public at 3:30 and the event started at 5:30 – so getting the entire party put together in a 2-hour timeframe was more than a little nerve-wracking! Especially since our tasks within that timeframe included moving furniture, removing a chandelier from the ceiling, setting up lighting, and clearing off tons of merchandise from the store shelves! Talk about a workout… But I’m happy to say that in the end, just like Rock Star Momma – the party went over very well! Here’s a little recap just for you…

He looked more than a little exhausted when he got home but rallied for the party…good husband!

rock star momma book release party & BOOK GIVEAWAY! The tray-passed hors d’oeuvres were provided by Treehouse and so delicious! My husband and I especially loved the mini star-shaped tostadas and chicken skewers with peanut sauce…yum! Specialty drinks included pink pomegranite martinis and citrus margaritas featuring Gran Centenario tequila.

The RSM goody bags included everything shown below and more…too much in fact to post everything here, but a few favorites include: sling totes by Fleurville , lip gloss by Stila , gift sets from little twig , super soft chenille baby blankets from Little Giraffe , "love" necklaces from LilyGirl , jeweled tanks and tees from Ankh , Peanut Shell baby slings, and a $200 shopping spree at Childish !

Is it obvious that I jumped into my dress in the women’s bathroom stall at 5:35 and barely had time to run a brush through my hair? As you may already know, sometimes party planning means spending more time fixing up the room than yourself. When that happens and suddenly the guests are there, all you can do is take a deep breath, move away from the mirror, grab a glass of wine – or in this case, a pomegranite martini – and enjoy the party. That’s what I did :)
