gender neutral baby shower cake

HWTM Contributor Maureen Anders of Anders Ruff, here – excited to share our new baby shower theme! Ready for a totally do-able and fresh gender neutral baby shower?  Sea breeze inspired hues of mint, aqua, lime, and yellow set the stage for some yummy desserts and soft, yet striking decor!

THEME HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Homemade “Baby Pickles” favors in upcycled glass baby food jars.
  • Decorative monogram “B” silhouette trimmed in yarn!

We {Anders Ruff} love to go overboard incorporating fabulous professional dessert artists, party decor companies and seamstresses.  There is so much talent out there, but there is also the reality of a budget.  This time we Anders Ruff girls did it all on our own {with exception of our sidekick photographer, Becca Bond Photography}.  It was fun to create a realistic menu including easy and beautiful desserts and finger foods that we made ourselves.

Jenn has always been an inspiration and we have always admired her creative use of yarn.  Yarn is such an economical embellishment and while we were trying to show a “down to earth” baby shower, it seemed like it would set the tone perfectly.

“Simply White” Wedding {Elegance + Natural Elements}

elegant white wedding placecard

This “Simply Elegant” White Wedding – designed by YourBASH! and held in the famous Crown Room at Hotel del Coronado – is sure to make any traditional bride swoon!

Sometimes limiting the color palette can inspire and highlight wonderfully creative ideas that may otherwise get overlooked. For example, the gorgeous tables in this wedding reception alternated between beautiful (and very masculine) dark wooden rectangles and standard 72″ rounds covered in a crisp white pleated linens. Such a great contrast dreamed up by Brian Worley! How many weddings have you attended where only half the tables are covered with linens? If you’re like me, then none… but it totally works AND gives you the flexibility to a whole new layer of design to the room!

WEDDING HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Lots of wood & natural textures used throughout
  • Lush white florals & soft candlelight for a romantic vibe
  • Mod minimalist menus & place cards embellished with pearls for a touch of shimmer
  • All-white tier cake adorned in white butterfly silhouettes

A fabulous Posh & Pink Safari Baby Shower!

HWTM on Pinterest + a Note on “Doing It All” Creatively

Sooo… unless you’re like my mom and hardly spend any time on the computer (GASP!), then chances are good you’ve heard of (or found yourself totally sucked into) a clever visual bookmarking site called Pinterest. Never has the abundance of creativity in the world been so apparent*… and so accessible!


Guess what? HWTM is on Pinterest too! And we pin creative stuff from ALL AROUND the web, focusing on fun topics like food, drinks, party fashion, graphic design, inspirational thoughts… and – oh ya – party ideas. ;)  You can find/follow our boards right here.

Hostess with the Mostess on Pinterest


*I know this is off-topic, but I feel compelled to add a little reminder that there are ideas from gazillions of people on Pinterest… and on HWTM for that matter… there isn’t just one single person pumping out all this amazing stuff all the time, so try not to let “inspiration” inadvertently turn into “pressure”. It’s amazing how quickly that can happen. This is a subject I’ve been thinking about a lot lately and could probably write a very lengthy post about it… but for now I’ll try to summarize – it IS Friday afternoon and all... ;) (more…)

Heavenly Little Angel Birthday Party {+ Adorable Bunnies}

pink angel birthday cake and bubbles

This party holds a special place in my heart. Angelina is the daughter of a couple I went to college with, and was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer in October of 2010, when she was only 9 months old. She’s had a rough past couple years, to say the least – chemo treatments and hospitals and multiple surgeries. Can’t. Even. Imagine.

It goes without saying, but her mom and dad have had an incredibly difficult past couple years as well. Thank goodness things are looking brighter now! With everything that was going on earlier, Angelina didn’t have much of a first birthday celebration, so Amy (her mom) really wanted to go all out and make her 2nd birthday extra special.

I was honored to style this party and play a small part in helping to make the celebration as sweet as possible. Angelina loves her pink bunny blanket and is Amy’s little angel (her name even says it!), so we couldn’t resist doing a Heaven/Angel inspired theme with a bunny twist…

  • Crafty angel wings made out of coffee filters, hanging on a pink ruffled backdrop
