Let’s Change the Vibe

When I started this blog my intention was to make it solely about interiors and design.  I know there are so many great lifestyle blogs out there talking about family, food and design…but I don’t want to go that route.  So you may be wondering why would I post party and decoration ideas?  First reason would probably be I love to host parties. And attend them And the second, more related reason, is that it’s all about changing a space.  According to Merriam-Webster, “Interior Design” is defined as:

the art or practice of planning and supervising the design and execution of architectural interiors and their furnishings

So by changing the design of an interior, say for a baby shower, I believe you would be doing exactly that.  Scoff if you will, at some one who compares Candice Olson to David Tutera…but they both create magical spaces that leave me in awe.

So now you know the method to my madness when you find some of my posts jump from furniture re-hab to birthday parties.  My new favorite gal is the Hostess with the Mostess and her amazing party inspirations. Fabulous photos and details, even free downloads for specific events!  I found the perfect decor inspiration for the baby shower of my bestest pal… Festival du Bebe. The shower will be co-ed, so the bright colors and fun accessories will be perfect for a Las Vegas baby.

I started making my shopping list right away, and came up with a plan so that whenever I am out and about, if something catches my eye I can quickly snatch it up.

  • Vases for Centerpieces
  • Ostrich Feathers
  • Small Planters for Flowers
  • Animal Figures (elephant, monkey, zebra, giraffe)
  • Table Cloth or Runner
  • Butterfly Accessories
  • Paper Lanterns (or make DIY tissue pouf)
  • Jewels for table confetti
  • Signs and tags (courtesy of my new favorite hostess!)

My biggest obstacle is that I will be traveling to the shower, so everything must fit in one suitcase…now that’s a fun challenge!
