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!

Easter Party

Fall in love with this Easter Party that we were delighted to have planned and designed! Held at our client’s private estate, the manicured grounds of their vast gardens provided the perfect setting for this fabulous Easter celebration filled with delicious food, family and fun!

We based all of the beautiful details on the soft colors of Spring. We draped round tables in pastel linens in shades of pink, yellow, lilac and blue and filled baskets with an array of bright blooms, greenery and adorable baby bunnies. Providing shade for guests, we dressed the market umbrellas with hanging roses in groupings of different colors. The Kitchen for Exploring Foods provided a delicious brunch buffet that was presented with floral touches from Mark’s Garden.

For the younger guests, we organized classic Easter-themed activities such as egg decorating, an egg hunt and photos with the Easter Bunny himself! For the Easter egg hunt, each child was given customized wicker baskets to hold their eggs! While the hunt was in full swing, the Easter bunny made an appearance to say hello and offer some assistance!

It was a very special holiday party that we loved putting together for a wonderful family. We hope you enjoy all of these sweet Easter memories!

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.

Ella’s Brentwood Country Club Bat Mitzvah

We loved planning and designing Ella’s Brentwood Country Club Bat Mitzvah! This cELLAbration was a classy, chic and FUN affair that had all of her guests raving!

The room was filled with a theatrical blue glow with architectural lighting projected throughout the space by Images by Lighting. Collections of Revelry’s mirrored rectangular coffee and communal tables filled the exterior space, while white lounge furniture framed the custom monogrammed dancefloor. Hidden Garden provided edgy floral touches that consisted of winter whites with pops of black calla lilies. Other details such as custom throw pillows with Ella’s party logo “cELLAbrate” were placed on the lounge furniture around the room.

Along with the monogrammed dance floor, Hidden Garden added gorgeous blooms of white roses, hydrangea, orchids and palm greenery to the base of DJ D’city Sound’s stage, while our “cELLAbrate” signage in white neon illuminated behind him.

Guests enjoyed snapping fun photos in the MirMir photo booth, sipping on mocktails and cocktails, snacking on churros dipped in chocolate and California Donuts shaped in the letter E. As guests partied on the dance floor monogrammed sweatpants and bucket hats with the birthday girl’s initials were passed out by the DJ’s dancers.

We absolutely loved being part of this monumental day for the birthday girl and her closest friends! Special thanks to Brian Kramer Photographer for capturing the beautiful images of the day!
