FEATURE: Vivi's TWEET Birthday

One of our favorite parties held at the historic and iconic Beverly Hills Hotel!
The thing that differentiates a wedding/adult event from a kiddy party is all the fun themes you get to work with that make conceptualizing ideas for the event so much more interesting and inspiring, and this party was no different!
Baby Vivi's "bird"-day theme was taken from a bedding collection her mom found at Pottery Barn Kids.  The event colors of sky blue, soft pink, and cream, mixed with blue and white polka dots complemented the existing mural throughout the interior of the hotel ballroom and so ideal for carrying out the bird theme.  Guests left personal messages for the birthday girl on die-cut birds hanging from a white manzanita tree.  Painted bird cages filled with wheat grass and bright gerbera daisies highlighted our tables, mixed with lovely French tulips, wooden birdhouses and mini ceramic bird figurines.
The hotel's pastry team did an amazing job with all our mini sweets, including cute birdie cake pops and mini ice cream sandwiches, accented with more bird-inspired props.  And the cake was designed by taking a scene directly from the PBK bedding that started it all.
I can't say I'm a big fan of birds in general, but loved all our themed details for Vivi's party!  It was a perfect combination of classiness to fit the formality of the venue, and simultaneously feminine and whimsical to celebrate a very "tweet" baby girl's first birthday!

Curry House is a Japanese-Style Curry and Spaghetti Restaurant in the LA, OC and Nor Cal areas. 
While originating in India, curry dishes are a staple in many Asian homes.  Quality spices and a variety of vegetables are cooked down till all the components are disintegrated, leaving a sauce rich in nutrients and consisting of several distinct flavor profiles.  

While curry is their obvious highlighted menu item, Curry House also offers many other fusion style food options including katsu, omelettes, spaghetti, and gratins.  Along with a list of a la carte toppings to further enhance your curry dining experience!  

I am pretty loyal to their traditional curry.  My fav is the Beef Curry, which uses very tender short rib meat.  A VERY close second is their Chicken Breast Katsu Curry.  Perfect crunch and texture!  You can select your preferred level of HOT for your curry and all entrees are served with rice and salad.  Their lightly sweetened Iced Green Tea and Tofu Cheesecake for dessert are the ideal meal complements for our family.


The kids meals is what we REALLY love though.  It's all in the presentation and even as an adult, I am impressed!  Kids plates come with soup, corn, fruit, fries, shrimp, and entree of choice.  And they also include a little toy for added fun.  It looks kid-friendly, but food doesn't seem as haphazard, which I sometimes feel guilty about as a parent with other kids meal options.    


So why the sudden blog luv for Curry House?  
Because of CURRY POWER DAYS!  
April 9th and 10th, enjoy 30% off all curry items for both lunch and dinner.  Check out their website for the location in your area and enjoy a family night out at Curry House next week!  You and your KIDS will be sure to love it!  Happy Dining!!!

Baby Avery has arrived and has started to form some juicy thighs and arm rolls, and getting used to life on the other side of the utero like a pro.  Before her grand debut we had a wonderful time celebrating mom-to-be and my sister!  The intimate and very feminine shower was featured on On to Baby and we're excited for you to see all the details!

FEATURE: Addison's Pink & White Stripe Birthday

This won't be the only time you'll be seeing Addison, as her first birthday was actually some time ago and since then we've celebrated her little brother's first birthday too!
But as we recently came into her party pictures, we still wanted to share all the fun that took place at her grandparents' home in Orange County.  Party festivities included a made to order crepe station, a sweets display, a sillhouette artist station, and a kiddy craft station for our little guests to decorate cookies and enjoy personalizing their own canvas backpacks filled with treats.  The very cooperative weather was super ideal for the outdoor event and all guests departed with a custom "thank you" cookie from Addison!

Happy (belated) first birthday to Addison!
