“Hi” from Arjuna! This is a daytime view of our dance studio ATOMIC Ballroom in Irvine. We hope that our kids will someday love to dance. If not? That’s okay. We just want them to “follow their bliss”.

Yesterday I hosted a tea party themed baby shower for my bestie/sissy-in-law Evonne. I hired a fabulous company called¬†Rent a Tea Party¬†to come out and not only deliver tea pots and cups but they also served the tea! It was a lovely party with lots of friends and amazing food by Evonne’s sister Allie who is starting a catering company called The Sassy Dish. It was perfect and Mama-to-be, again, Evonne was glowing.

I made pennant flags to place about the yard. Super simple and really cute!



Food by Allison from The Sassy Dish. Everything was delisious!




Tables and linens are from Signature Party Rentals and I made the centerpieces using thrift store finds and mason jars. The little creamers and honey containers were each 99 cents at World Market. Tissue paper puffs hang from a flowerless tree and large paper lanterns were hung from our tree swing tree.




The tea party had a “baby bird” theme so I hung various bird cages and tea cups to our orange tree for a whimsical effect.




Activities for the guests included a headband making station for the baby girl, a “Wishes for Baby Tree”, a parenting advice Mad Lib and a kids tea table.


Sweet mama to be Evonne.
