Gone All Red 🍒

…for Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas everyone! Remember that divine beauty is often around the corner and all you need to do is look closely and emphasize it… If you’re not able to find it, remember that you yourself are a miracle and can create beauty with a little thoughtful touch through pause, contemplation and love…

russian doll

I’ve always had a weakness for russian dolls… they are a fun symbol of maternity and I thought they would make the perfect party favor to embody the close bond I share with my two daughters whose initials are featured on the medium and small dolls. On the large doll I chose to feature a bouquet as my daughters’ names are floral.  Those Matryoshkas are also pretty cosmopolitan themselves as they were designed in the US (per my guidance), the wooden dolls were made in Russia (by Golden Cockerel), while the packaging (the printed boxes and stickers) were made in Lebanon (by DELF / Dar El Founoun).

My sister’s baby shower by Art-Monit event & wedding planning

Looking to plan a baby shower party? Here’s one stylish yet classic idea to get inspired from for a refined and sweet baby shower. It’s a Victorian-era themed Tea with a country feel. For such an impeccable setting both the location and the decoration are equally important.  Look for a venue with a classic, historic and elegant style to start with. Add delicate decorations: Flowers are a must; candles, kerosene lamps or lanterns can also add a romantic, vintage feel. For the table décor, use a flower centerpiece with soft colors (roses are particularly great to emulate an old english country ambiance) and an old-fashioned lace or crochet tablecloth. Fine china and antique or vintage inspired tea cups can also add a great effect if available. Use soft colors (white and pastel) in cake, cupcakes, cookies and party favors’ decoration. For party favors, marmalade jars and softly scented baby soap bars are chosen here for an old country touch.
