Britney Spears’ Baby Shower Bash

Sometimes the best way to find motivation for the future is to draw inspiration from the past, and that is exactly why we love looking back at past parties and events with which we have been involved. Among our favorites is Britney Spears’ 2005 Baby Shower Bash which left a colorful mark in our memory and will forever have a place in our hearts.

We were honored to work alongside Britney Spears to dream up and design the intimate Moroccan-themed baby shower which welcomed her first son, Sean Preston Federline in late summer 2005, and can’t wait to share all the colorful details with you. To see the details of this blossoming baby bash and get the behind-the-scenes scoop on a celebrity shower, keep reading!

Bursting with color and culture at every turn, Britney’s baby shower was located right in the pop sensations garden, where we transformed the atmosphere to a modern Moroccan-themed wonderland. Upon arrival, guests kicked off their shoes and walked barefoot through thousands of pink, orange, and red rose petals into a vibrant arrangement of tiki torches, tents, and colorful umbrellas which set the scene.

The small collection of family and friends in attendance lounged on colorful cushions in the lawn where they laughed and chatted to the backdrop of traditional Moroccan music. Henna artists and fortune tellers enchanted guests with their skills, while they basked in the late-summer sunset.

As the celebration continued, guests gathered in the tent for a delicious dinner, tender toasts, fun games and heartwarming family time. The pink and orange tent was cozy and glamorous, with dainty blooms hanging overhead and beautiful billowing bouquets by Mark’s Garden tying the table together. After a delightful meal and sweet gift exchange, family and friends ended the night on a sweet note with an elaborate cake that was shaped like a traditional Moroccan pot with a darling baby peeking its head out.

From the barefoot floral entrance to the magical Moroccan music and every enchanting element in between, Britney Spears’ baby shower was one of our favorite events to date and we love looking back on this timeless treasure! To see all the darling details, keep scrolling!

Backyard Wedding Celebration

After tying the knot in a romantic, intimate wedding in Eze, France, 5,000 miles away from home, our bride and groom wanted to celebrate with their closest friends and family comfortably in their backyard. It was our pleasure to make their vision a reality.

In their spacious garden, we created an elegant celebration designed with plush lounge furniture with gold accents, rustic communal tables, and round dining tables draped in cream linen. With the help of Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden, The rustic, Tuscan look was perfected with aged votives and elements of birch, olive branch, herbs were treated with warm floral arrangements in shades of tangerine, persimmon, pink, blush, yellow and shades of green.

For dinner, guests were treated to a delectable meal by The Kitchen For Exploring Foods made of fresh, farm to table ingredients. As the night continued and the drinks were flowing, the “afterparty” moved indoors so the DJ could spin well into the wee hours of the morning. Our bride and groom were thrilled that their wedding dreams came true not only once, but twice.

Designing this wedding celebration at our client’s beautiful home was such a fun experience for us! Thank you to the entire creative team for helping bring this couple’s dream to life!

Intimate Four Seasons Vow Renewal

This intimate Four Seasons Santa Barbara vow renewal was a romantic summer celebration deep-rooted in family and love. This vow renewal was not just about celebrating Shannon + Jon’s love for one another, it was about celebrating the strength of their family and friendships.

Cream colored flower petals led to a stunning bridal arch designed by Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden, which was made of lush greenery with blush, cream and lavender roses. The butterflies, which are a common theme throughout this day, represent the two month old son Shannon + Jon painfully lost in 2008. The intimate ceremony took place overlooking Butterfly Beach, while the bride of 21 years looked gorgeous in a flowing white gown that featured butterfly appliques on the bodice of the dress paying homage to her son.

Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner under a draped wooden pergola, with crystal chandeliers and an abundance of floral and greens hanging above their heads. For the dining table, we introduced low cream-colored florals with touches of lavender and many candles to add ambience and romance. As the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, guests enjoyed a decadent dinner from the Four Seasons on gold-rimmed china, silver flatware and crystal glassware while a musical trio played the couples favorite songs in the background.

With just two months to plan, we are incredibly pleased with this fantastic celebration we were able to create for Shannon + Jon. Thank you to all of our hard-working and amazing vendors for helping to bring this day to life. Special thank you to Joe Buissnik for capturing the details, special moments and the relaxed atmosphere of the day.
