I’m officially SO late to this recap party, it’s not even funny. We actually styled a Kentucky Derby event at our favorite local cocktail bar, Julep, and it was quite an event! Since the Kentucky Derby is long gone by now, we’ll just call this inspiration for a Southern garden party now instead, okay? I hope you don’t judge me already, I swear it will be good!

We were actually planning the decor for this event while we were galavanting through California and also coming home to back to back workshops, with this garden party landing right in the middle, so we enlisted the help of one of our favorite local party planners, Meredith of Cake & Confetti to help us with the details! Meredith is awesome, and it just so happens that all kinds of sweet and pretty things pop up when you Google her company name, so you’re welcome in advance for endless hours of fun with that.

Before you go, let’s talk through the party details!…

As some of you may know, my cactus train has been ready and roaring since this little DIY several months ago, and I don’t plan to come to a screeching halt with it any time soon! Good news is my friends support the obsession, so when I met up with Kelly in Los Angeles last week for work, we decided to go full force with a cactus inspired brunch party with Lowe’s so we could catch up with some of our favorite West coast bloggers all in one place!

I think it’s actually physically impossible for us to cut corners when it comes to a celebration, so we have a jam packed party full of printable placemats, menu cards, budget friendly DIY favors (with some very unexpected Lowe’s supplies!), avocado donuts, and of course, my token macarons with cacti on them…

A Simple Easter Gathering & DIY Leather Chargers

I’m all about holidays, but to be totally honest, I don’t actually decorate too much for any of them just because it can be a large undertaking for such a short amount of time. Instead, I really love the idea of creating small elements with a holiday flair that you can use time and time again, but still make the space yours. To give you an idea of how to create a modern, gender neutral atmosphere for some upcoming get togethers, Brittni and I teamed up with Fossil to share our take on a simple Easter gathering & DIY leather chargers (as just one of the many handmade elements!) alongside some of our Houston friends.

In lieu of traditional Easter items, we opted to add in little nods here and there with ombre egg macarons, unexpected dip dyed egg colors as table accents, simple DIY bunny tail drink stirrers, and gummy fried eggs as party favors. In case Easter isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other ideas for your too, with spiked grapefruit lemonade cocktails, DIY leather chargers, DIY grid print runner, and LOTS of other goodies, cause you know, we always have to have more than one DIY around here!

The studio launch party has officially come and gone, but it was one heck of a good time! We wanted to do something this time around that would let us celebrate with lots of people as opposed to the five hour nap/coma that I took after getting the last studio in gear. We’re not quite ready to share the full reveal with you on the new studio, but we’re almost there!

For now, I will keep you entertained with a poptail recipe, favor bags, photo ops, and macaron ice cram sandwiches… oh, and a giveaway!
