Fab July

Fab for July

I’m working with Fab again to share my favorite quirky finds from the shop. Clearly I was feeling the geometric designs this time around! I found some classics I was already familiar with, along with a few new-to-me discoveries by independent designers. Below are my picks, but you can also sign up for Fab’s email newsletter to keep up with their newest design sales.

  1. Rhino Box
    It will “guard your tiny treasures.” Need I say more?

  2. Strut Table
    I want to design a dining room around this table.

  3. Bundle Side Table
    Nice legs.

  4. Napkin Stand
    What is this? And why do I even want one? Don’t know, but it’s cute.

  5. Crane Light
    Simple, and good-looking.

  6. Be Kind to Books Print
    A good reminder (and subtle admonishment) for little ones.

  7. White Coconut Pendant
    Classic design. Good lighting always elevates everything else in the room.

  8. Triangle Eco Throw
    Zigzags are on the outs, but I still like triangles.

  9. Blue Tablo Table
    Such a playful table! Could be a great coffee table to balance out more serious furniture.

  10. Infinity Kitty Print
    Meow, meow, meow, meow…

  11. Cant Desk
    A small desk with big style.

  12. Hex Copper Bowl
    I think copper is the next metal to have a surge in popularity. Watch your back, brass.

p.s. Fab has a pop-up Kate Spade Saturday sale starting tonight!

Crafty Like a Fox Party Theme

This is the third and final baby shower theme I created for a Huggies Pinterest campaign. It’s also my favorite and the most ‘me’ of the bunch. Because I’m so foxy.

Kidding! I do love the color scheme though, all based around a floral tablecloth by Rifle Paper Co. for BHLDN. This is the tablecloth I’d considered chopping up for kitchen curtains. I’m so glad I didn’t, because now I’ll be able to take it with us and use it in our next house. (As a tablecloth, not curtains! Imagine that.)

Again, these were shot in Tyllie Barbosa’s Chicago studio. And again, my sister-in-law, Portia, assisted me on set. We had the food styling down by this point.

There was a dessert table, too. I made the little bunting flags over the cake, but the cake itself was an off-the-shelf coconut cake from the grocery store.

This is a baby shower theme, so I originally pitched this as “Foxy Mama.” That is apparently too racy? Thus the theme became “Crafty Like a Fox” instead. Naturally, I had to setup a craft station.

And speaking of crafty, another diaper cake. Never did I suspect I’d make a diaper cake in my life, but here’s my third one. I daresay this is something I’m actually good at! Adding it to the resumé.

Foxy Baby Shower Diaper Cake

My creation graced the gift table. The framed tree print you see here was borrowed from Binth for the shoot. They had a beautiful family tree version in their store with calligraphy, but I wasn’t sure how that would fly for photo shoot releases so I used the plain version. The cards on the table are by Binth as well.

There are more photos of the Crafty Like a Fox baby shower theme on Pinterest, and you can see the other two shower themes I designed and styled for this campaign here and here. This was my favorite, but which was yours?

Welcome to the World Baby Shower

This was the second of three baby shower themes I created for a Huggies Pinterest campaign. Welcome to the World, Baby!

I liked the invitations that I designed for this one a lot. They were based on the look of a topological map.

Brandon’s sister, Portia, assisted me again on the day of the shoot. The baby onesies on a clothes line is one of her tried-and-true baby shower decorations. Portia and I were a lot better at the whole food styling thing the second time around.

All photography was done by Tyllie Barbosa in her studio again. Here’s the sweets table. (Those salted caramels were from Trader Joe’s, and now I want some.)

Another diaper cake masterpiece, if I do say so myself. We also filled a vintage baby carriage with diapers, because why not? (That may have been a strange choice on my part.)

Please take a moment to admire the decoupage here, because that was Brandon’s contribution. I was scrambling to get everything done, and he helped out with covering BABY kraft letters with vintage map wrapping paper and Mod Podge.

Also, I want to thank Yearbook. They’re one of my favorite local shops, and they let me borrow the amazing vintage globes you see throughout the photos for the shoot.

Welcome to the World, Baby

You can find more images from the Welcome to the World Baby Shower on Pinterest. The Comic Book Baby Shower can be seen here, and I’ll be sharing photos from the last of my three themes soon.
