We Heart... Reclaimed Wood

We love the look of reclaimed wood! Its dusty grey hues, warm or cool, bring texture to any space. We use it in event decor, in our studio and in our homes. Pair it with sleek stainless steel for a modern approach or flaky whites and creams for a soft romantic look.  Check out local lumber yards and architectural salvage shops in your area for large quantities. Reclaimed wood is being used in new restaurants, cafes and homes all over... its a beautiful new way to repurpose old materials... and of course, we love that!

It is so fun to throw a baby shower! We love the whimsy and bright colors that come to play in a party for a little one to be. Even better, we love throwing a party when mama has a great eye for color and design! This shower we threw for one of our closest and most talented friends... Viola of Chewing the Cud. Her little girl Maika is now a toddler, but we love the look and detail of this shower. Its bright pinks paired with pops of orange and modern patterns will excite and entertain all your guests... its definitely not the kind of shower our moms had for us!!!!

We played up the idea of the circus for the theme of this event... from shape and color to elephant silhouettes, the inspiration for this was fun and a little wild! Check out more pics and the original post on Hostess (with the Mostess) Blog.

... and here's our bébé... Maika :)
