Recently, at the hands of some well-meaning girlfriends, I, Carly, succumbed to what some might call the “I’m-pushing-30” peer pressure to join a local bootcamp. So, every morning I now wake up before 5am, stumble into my kitchen, drink my coffee with my eyes still closed, and head off to camp. There I spend the next hour of my life running, jumping, lifting, and lunging until I can lunge no more, all in the name of fitness. Sounds exciting, right? Well, I honestly have no reason for telling you about any of it, except to help you fully understand just how much I’ve been thinking about cake lately, so this DIY abstract floral pattern cake is no coincidence as far as timing!

Lucky for me, these same girlfriends of mine like to regularly host fabulous dinner parties. Ones where we all gather around bottles of wine while we cook each other all sorts of delicious foods and eat to our hearts’ content. It’s wonderful, for so many reasons, but it also affords me the perfect opportunity to make (and eat) some truly amazing cake.

Now of course, for nights as special as these, I can’t just show up with any old cake. But let’s be honest, who has the time, energy, or talent to make a show-stopping cake worthy of television show glory? Well I’m glad you asked, my friend, because YOU do, and I’m going to show you how…

In case you haven’t had the chance to experience the retro goodness that is Palm Springs in real life just yet, we’re helping bring the DIY version straight to you with this DIY retro Summer brunch or soiree we created alongside Beau Tied Events!

Naturally we had to bring a little DIY touch to it all, so I have lots of how-to details, printables, and even a giveaway for one lucky reader for a seriously amazing goodie bag fit for poolside glamour…

When BHLDN asks you to team up with them to style a tea party themed soiree, you naturally do two things: one being to run a few laps around your studio out of sheer excitement, and the second being to go buck wild and transform your whole studio into a Grand Budapest Hotel inspired wonderland from top to bottom.

Lucky for you I don’t skimp on the details when it comes to get togethers, and thus a tea party with BHLDN is anything but an exception, so I’m going to share alll of the details, how-to’s, and even a few freebies for you to create your own!…

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!…
