It was such an honor to partner with Operation Shower again at their LA “A Star is Born” themed shower! This is such an amazing non-profit that helps moms-to-be of military families in the midst of deployment celebrate the joy of welcoming a new one. At the party, emcee Sarah Michelle Gellar hosted the shower for 40 moms, whose spouses are deployed members of Naval Base Ventura County. I hope to take part in another fabulous celebration with Operation Shower in the future!

I am desperately trying to get back into the swing of things after basically taking the last 2 weeks off to spend with the family, but the “catching up” is taking longer than expected! I am really going to try to blog more this year, so I wanted to share this baby shower that I was so excited to see featured on On To Baby over the holidays. It was so much fun to work with Larrissa on something a little different. Brandi, from High Society Event Plannning wanted a Jonathan Adler meets vintage vibe. This is what we came up with….
This wall art was a labor of love to say the least. Larrissa and I spent hours wrapping the paper, and the installation took an amazingly long time….but I couldn’t be more proud of the outcome…What a statement, right?
Now off to do more “catching up”….
Found Pieces at the shower: Schubert Blue Settee, Louis Gold Chair, Warner Grey Couch, Sammie Blue Chair, Polk Green Chair, Johnny Blue Chair, Rosa Yellow Chair, Howell Silver Nesting Tables, Powell Gold Nesting Tables, Cooper Gold Side Table, Rod Blue Metal Table, Narcisus Grey Table, Nicholas Side Table, Ames Blue Stool, Jenkins Yellow Bin, Laura Gold Candelabra, Patch Standing Bowl, Waverly Blue Box, Tarkin Wooden Box, and Schmidt Blue Shutter
Thanks for sharing these images, Megan! Everything looked beautiful!!!
I am so excited to show off the fabulous workings of Marie Dannettelle from Sweets Indeed. She did an amazing job bringing her vision for Operation: Sunshine Farm, to life. I was so happy to take part (or at least some of my pieces of furniture) in this amazing charity event. Operation Shower is an outstanding non-profit organization that provides joyful baby showers for military families to ease the burden of deployment. Simply Wonderful! Looks like quite an event…
Love how she used my Bouton Riddling Rack. I’m stealing this idea for sure!
I love that this is outside the realm of the typical baby shower. It is universal enough that I’m sure it appealed to every Mommy-to-be celebrating that day.
Great Job Marie, thanks so much for bringing me on board for this amazing event. And please thank Shannon for sharing the pics!!!

Angel Swanson. How do I describe someone so wonderfully awesome? I have known her for less than a year, but someone I hope to have in my life forever. She makes me smile. Maybe it is because she is so incredibly calm, or maybe it is because she is able to stay calm while creating the most beautiful of things. Maybe its the vintage dresses that she rocks like no other, or the amazing hair pieces that look like they were made just for her? It must just be a combination of all of these things that make me smile when I see her, or even as I sit here writing about her. She is rad, and I need not try to explain why. She just is.
I mean look at this amazing baby shower that she threw for her bestie….she made my things look pretty awesome….I must say!

Never really knew how I would use the ironing boards that I just had to have 3 of! But what better way than at a baby shower! So cute!
I miss my little monkeys being in clothes this small. Now Bailey (9 years old) asks if she can borrow my clothes. Of course I say yes! I’m stoked that she thinks my clothes are “cool”!
I am beyond thrilled that Angel that found was a part of this precious baby shower! Thanks Angel!
