Our baby shower, part 2
Well folks, you can call off the search, take down the posters, hang up your 911 call because you have officially found the best ‘parenting party’ (co-ed shower) that’s ever been given … and it was ours, thrown by Scott, Corbett and Orlando – 3 of my very best friends in LA. Naturally they are also the people who I think have the best style and know me the most, stylistically, too, so thats awesome. Last week I blogged about the party but not the decor – check out those photos here.
It was totally fantastic and just generally amazing in every way. Let me walk ya through it.
They chose a triangle theme. Everybody kept trying to guess that the triangle was symbolic for something fertile or infant or something, and while it is the shape of ones, ahem, lower region area, I think they chose it because its super on trend and visually very fun.
Scott hosted the party at his new beautiful house in LA. In case you don’t know this man he is one of my very best friends in the world (like family, this man). We met on set years 12 years ago, both assistant stylists. He went on to work for Martha and has been a freelance (and very sought after) stylist for years.
So he got his DIY on to make some much needed confetti.
When I walked up to the house I was shocked at what I first saw. These awesome DIY brass pendants that Corbett just whipped up. Just like that. Leave a comment if you want the DIY – I’ll have her recreate it for the blog. They were awesome.
But that wasn’t good enough, nay. We also got to walk through this threshold of triangle ribbons. This was also around the holidays and could double as SUCH a cute holiday decor idea, too. It’s strangely fun to walk under a bunch of ribbon – it’s like life just turned up the silly and festive on you. And while I would have had a good time if they had just shoved a bunch of themed straws in my face, I have to say that Brian and I both had so much more fun having it be so decked out.
Then Kristen from Moon Canyon made this awesome triangle wreath that was just stunning. Thanks, Kristen!
Here’s a sneak peek into Scott’s house which is just ridiculously beautiful.
Even the ceilings had triangle banners … Because ceilings are people, too.
Oh and there was a teepee, naturally. What triangle themed party would be complete without a teepee serving as the bar? So beautiful.
They even had this pinata custom made for me which of course I’m still hoarding in Charlie’s room for his 4th birthday. And in case you are wondering how much a custom pinata of this size is, the answer is either $18 or $28 … I forget, but definitely not as expensive as I thought it would be.
Check out the other party post to see that triangle light fixture in action. It’s awesome, served as a focal point in the space and drew people to the other side of the pool.
They painted on these floating candle holders which tended to want to just hang out at the edge of the pool, but looked chic regardless.
The thought, effort and love that went into this party is truly remarkable. I stayed up til 12 on that Sunday talking with everyone while they kept drinking wine and I wasn’t even jealous this time because I had such a good time.
I mean, that’s a ridiculously fun, festive and modern baby shower/party. Scott, Orlando and Corbett KILLED IT.
They are three of my favorite people in the world. Three people who I’ve never gotten sick of no matter how much time I’ve spent with them (which is A LOT) plus they all love each other, thank god. We all go flea marketing, thrifting, shopping and then many a happy hours drinking. Thank you guys so so so so so much. Without sounding too cheesy and hormonal, it truly was one of the best nights ever. Brian and I felt very, VERY, special. I love you. (To see all the party photos, click HERE).
