More Heros Via The Party Dress

Create your own superhero like Shim & Sons

Shim & Sons Super Emblem, Cape, & Mask

Amber wrote in & asked for a few super hero ideas for her five year olds birthday party. Create a custom comic coloring book with the birthday boy as one of the main characters. A great keepsake is to have super hero capes for all the kids. Tie each cape around the kids chairs as part of the decor. Kids can decorate super hero masks for a fun craft project at the party. Create a menu named after super heros (ex. "Super" Hero sandwiches, Captain America Chips, Ironman Ice Cream, etc..) And be sure to check out the above posting super hero parties for more ideas-I love the party from Shim & Sons where she created a super hero character inspired by her son. She tied the emblem and color scheme into the entire party & it was "super" cute! Hope this gives you a few ideas to get started!

Mesa Residential Project

I wanted to share another residential design project with you. Here is the fabulous formal living room

The entire room was white when we started, white ceiling,floors & walls. We warmed it up with dark woods,ir on railings & chandeliers. We added beautiful fabrics and furniture for a gorgeous space.

My clients puchased this fabulous baby grand piano. We didn't want it tucked away in a corner of the living room so we placed it in the center of the foyer. Now, it is an amazing centerpiece of the space.

We also designed a billiard room off the formal living room for the man of the house.

For more photos of this project, you can visit my website here.
