But regardless of the present climate, Thanksgiving is a mere five days away and the preparations to welcome families and friends for upcoming dinners and celebrations are in full swing.

It’s a Small World: A Tribute to Children from Rio!

A few months ago, I was contacted by Yanira Anglada from Cake Therapy who so graciously invited me to participate in a sugar artist collaboration to celebrate Universal Children's Day in the form of cupcakes!

Gobble Up This Sweet Turkey Fondant Topper Tutorial!

Thanksgiving is coming up in just a little over two weeks {how is that possible?!} and we'll be packing up to do our traditional travel to Northern California to spend the holiday with our family. I remember my daughter's very first Thanksgiving at seven months old, which incidentally was also her very first plane ride.

I'm super excited to share the details of my daughter's Endless Summer surf party for her 7th make-up/unbirthday! Ever since Anabelle was born, we've been throwing big parties when commemorating her special day. The celebrations, as well as my party planning skills, have evolved and developed throughout the years, from her very first Poodle in Paris party to her 4th Finding Neverland birthday to last year's Vintage Hawaiian Luau. Due to work commitments and all the craziness from the release of … [Read More...]
