Boho Beach Baby Party

I know what you're thinking, a toddler's birthday party on the beach? That's crazy.  Yes... It is. Kind of crazy. I mean, there is so much sand. You can't bring anything glass--no platters, cups, jars, nothing. But how often do you get to hang out with everyone you know, and all your kids friends, at the beach at the same time? Never. So we went for it. And it was SO fun. ~Snapped a quick pic moments before the guests arrived and the fog burned off.~ A double wide pop up tent provided essential shade and the added bonus of a place to hang decorations. For hanging decor I chose to garnish a dozen embroidery hoops with minimalist florals, pink yarn, and a small gold mylar balloon.  Embroidery...

Camp Stripes

Wall decals including clouds and a harvest moon, which you may recognize it from our popular tank top line, are now available in the shop.See what's new in the Camp Stripes section here.

And tents. Need I say more...

This year's theme did not disappoint. The gowns, the masks, the tuxedos. The Uber drivers did not know what hit them.  Hosted by local NBC and Telemundo talent, the show was highly entertaining. But I have to give it up for the DJ, the music and sound system were amazing, the crowd was pumped and the checks were flowing. Now can I get a drum roll please....

Holiday Hot Cocoa Booth

Last year we set up a sweet family photo-op area at the shop--a Hot Cocoa Booth. It was last minute, we had no time to advertise, but it was such a hit for those walking by. Of course the Hot Cocoa Booth will be making a return in December before the Carol of Lights festival in Downtown Campbell. The BoothWhen my husband built this booth we had no idea how many uses would come out of it. It's simply made of 2 pallets. One split down the middle and attached to the either side of the front pallet to make it stand. 1" square rods nailed into each corner hold up the canopy. And we had some left over pergo...
