Sunshine + Lemon Petite Styled Shoot in Andover, New Jersey

Before the upcoming cooler weather and the end of the season, V and I collaborated to produce a styled shoot inspired by the citrusy lemon. We wanted to capture the essence and spirit of an outdoor soirée for my littles and their besties on a perfect summer afternoon.

V visited the Hunts Point Flower Market to purchase the flowers to achieve these centerpiece looks. I added my two-sense with a halved fig ;-)

We wanted to use lemons as the focus point of our shoot, but not in an over done way. White with shades of yellow and pink were used to show the vibrancy of the season and to add more dimension.

V styled each place setting with a yellow gingham cloth napkin as a place mat, as is her signature design element for kid's’ tablescapes only one piece of cutlery was used.

Now let’s get into the awe-inspiring desserts, especially the cake. Kedby outdid herself with these treats. Our cake was made with a lemon infused buttercream with vanilla bean filling. The cake was decorated with lemon macarons, gold leaf, a sprinkling of pistachios and dehydrated lemon slices. The dehydrated lemons were also used in the caksicles and the lemon curd tarts. All were beautiful and tasted even better.

THE perfect addition to any kid’s event are concession stand food carts. Tasha of All About Play brought her Puffection cart to give the kids a taste of her organic lemon cotton candy.

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll remember these chairs were found on Craigslist. Sorry they are not for sale, they are used in my little ones’ toy room.

Summer BBQ feature in Whisk by Ami

I made the journey to Monsey, New York to deliver our newly designed low table for Rachel (@Rachel.Ostroy). D and I are constantly looking for inspiration for kid sized tables. This design was a 15” high Japanese inspired kotatsu. The table is 40” wide and 7’ long, perfect for kids and adults to share a meal or just relax around. For Rachel’s shoot she used two table (long side together) to create a massive setting for a BBQ celebration.

Rachel and her team took bar-b-quing to a whole new level. Everything from the boxwood centerpieces to the galvanized steel serving platters was thoughtful executed. Rachel partnered with the Ami Food Magazine for execute this shoot.

Upsherin In Brooklyn

Partee Perfection contacted us with the need for a black kids table. D had just built the white trestle tables, so I decided to make the table have a interchangeable top- black on one side, white on the other. The tables, ghost, and gold chiavaris were used for a Hot Like Fire upsherin in Brooklyn.

New Inventory: Cart

We decided to add to our product line and the most logistical (space friendly) items were carts. Not being a fan of the larger carts with canopies I settled on a design that was a semicircle shape. 

What do you think? I commissioned three to be made. Still deciding which colors to paint them.

Tables + Chairs

You have your party theme, purchased the invites, and now you are thinking about what is needed for the day of the event. Are you torn on your tablescape design? Do you like the mix of the traditional Charivaris, but love the funkiness of the Bertoia chairs? Or it is rustic all the way with our cross-back chairs? The perfect way to show your style and design is in your tablescape setup, the focal point of the party. Check out some of our favorite product combinations. Which are your favorite?

Lol Surprise 5th Birthday In Maywood, NJ

From Ari (@Ari_Says):

“How many of your kids are @lolsurprise fans?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Clover’s been a fan since Series 1! It’s been quite a fun journey of loving these little dolls. (I’m guilty of being just as obsessed + pretty much know all the dolls she has! That said when she kept asking for a party, she’ll get an #lolsurpriseparty even though it was last minute! 💞 it was so fun to see her reaction! She wanted to be Unicorn LOL doll from Series 3 + I think I did a great job delivering! 💓Thanks to the vendors that worked with me!”
