Flamingo Inspiration

I’m obsessed with flamingos. There’s something so magical about these pretty pink birds! Here are a few ways I’ve found to include more flamingos in my life.  Which ones would you try? (PS -A Flamingo Baby Shower!)

Our Ribbon Wall!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a rainbow ribbon wall at my studio. I’ve collected tons of ribbon over the years, but up until now it’s just been sitting in boxes in my party closet. When we moved into the new studio last year, I purchased an awesome bottle drying rack at the Alameda Flea Market so that we could start displaying all our ribbon. We hung it up and threw on the ribbon we had, but it was still missing something. I knew we needed some special ribbon to fill in the holes. So, I was super excited when I met Angela Liguori the last time I was in New York. She sells the most beautiful Italian ribbon I’ve ever seen. When my Studio Carta order arrived in the studio, I literally gasped as I opened the box. The colors are so beautiful and the ribbon is perfect and soft. It was exactly what our wall needed. It’s funny because I realized I haven’t bought much purple ribbon over the years. When I put up the ribbon wall I only had one roll! The final result is a dream come true! I cannot wait to experiment with all this ribbon.

A Heart Party

by Casey Baudoin

A heart party is a great idea for this time of year… for your little girl, bride, baby shower, or Valentine’s Day.  The possibilities are endless!  String up some heart garland, add some heart balloons, guests can wear heart headbands, and let’s not forget that cake!
