For weeks I've had the phrase, "Gatsby? What Gatsby?" stuck in my head. The trailers for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby have teased us with scenes of wild dancing, bubbling champagne and confetti. Lots of confetti. A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to participate in a Great Gatsby inspired shoot and get our roaring 20s on! We were excited when the shoot was featured on The Lovely Bay today. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots by the talented Rochelle Wilhelms!
We were so excited to see our Orange Victorian Sofa getting some love.
We're kind of obsessed with our custom channel letter signs. Subtle, just like Baz Luhrmann!

Last month, we packed up and headed out to wine country for an amazing inspirational shoot with Retrospect Images. We spent the day at the gorgeous Annadel Estate and hit a few good antique stores on the way home. A great day, right? Well, to make things perfect we just found out our winery chic inspiration shoot was featured on Ruffled! A take a look below at our favorite shots from the day.

We just read this great article in the LA Times with tons of great tips for those of you hosting guests this holiday season. Why we loved it so much? All the tips were involving the benefit of RENTING during the holiday season for your entertaining. We couldn't agree more! You don't need to be throwing a fête of 100+ to use rental services to make your life easier and your party prettier! Here are some of our favorite reasons to rent from the article:
- Delivery! Rental companies can bring the party to you. And take it away when you're done. (Think of the easy cleanup! Simply rinse and place the items back in the crates and we take care of the rest!)
- Don't have time to polish silver? Rent OUR flatware. It's ready to go!
- Mix and match dishes are a trend. Layer a few different patterns to complete your table.
