Haute Couture for the Kitchen

Who wouldn’t LOVE getting one of these sexy, chic apron’s as a bridal shower or bachelorette gift. Elizabeth Scokin created these adorable Haute Hostess Aprons and offers them in a variety of styles, colors and prints starting at only $62.00 (sale price). Any of these aprons would add a bold pop to your little black dress when in the kitchen, and I guarantee all of the women at the party will be asking you where you got your apron! 🙂

Tropical Wedding Romance in the Desert

I’m excited to be working with a really fun-spirited couple and their families to plan a beautiful June wedding in Arizona. Our vision for the event is to create a sophisticated outdoor evening affair that embodies the lush colors of the tropics, paired with romance and lots of laughter. Their colors are: bright pinks, yellows and whites with the hint of orange. Check out some of the inspiration boards I created for them.

Celebrate with Bubbles

I’m in love with Lollia’s bath and body products. They are so elegant, pretty and make wonderful gifts. One of my favorite products (and Oprah’s too) is the “Relax Evening Bubble Bath” that comes in a beautiful champagne bottle and is topped with a silk rose. At only $32.00 this makes a great bridal shower gift!

Memory Journals…The Perfect Baby Shower Gift

I love the idea of giving baby journals as a shower gift to new moms. Although, it can often be hard to find ones that are modern, cute and practical. Which is why you have to check out the adorable journals from Essential Organizers available through the modern online baby store, Fawn & Forest.

Each book is only $19.95 which makes it an affordable and extremely thoughtful gift.

Above: 40 weeks + pregnancy organizer, would be great to give as a “we’re having a baby” gift.

Above: Birth to one year organizer, would be great to give as a shower or “we’ve had a baby” gift.

I also love the Binth Baby Book from Fawn & Forest priced at $110. The entire book is handcrafted and screen printed with beautiful woodland illustrations.

A Tasty Twist on the Diaper Cake

You’ve probably seen your fair share of diaper cakes which make their debut at almost every baby shower, and consist of layers of rolled diapers topped with colorful ribbon and toys.

As an alternative to ‘diaper cake tradition’, check out this adorable and unique “cupcake diaper cake”. The ‘frosting’ is a sweet handcrafted pink cupcake mini blankie from LuLusWoobies. The underside of the blanket consists of a delicious cupcake print, perfect for any sweet little girl. Also, check out the bright red felt cherry on top which can be a fun addition to a play food set in a few years. The cupcake wrapper is hand-folded vanilla cream paper and contains 20 premium diapers, size 1 (8-12 lbs). Very Cool!

This boutique-style handmade gift is practical (what new mom couldn’t use a few more diapers) and the cute blanket is sure to be a hit with the baby.

Interested? Elements of Entertaining will be carrying these baby shower gifts when we launch, so stay tuned.

Accent Your Next Party With Modern Decor

At a recent tradeshow in Dallas, I came across a brightly lit store called Accent Decor, with lots of modern vases, pots, candles and fun accent pieces that I thought would be great (and very versatile) for many of the parties I throw. Since I’m still in the process of building my inventory for Elements of Entertaining, I’d love to know which items on their site you’d like to see me carry!
