Are you still loving the sliding barn door trend? Why not try this industrial chic style with rippled glass panes? They offer privacy but allows the light to filter through!

I took football shaped Easter eggs & filled them with candy.
With Touchdown M&M's of course!
Where are you watching the Super Bowl?
I am finally getting around to posting this sweet sleep over party I created for my sassy seven-year-old client! She wanted to have a sleepover with seven of her girlfriends to watch movies and have fun! She loves popcorn so we made this cute popcorn bar for them to enjoy!
I made a simple banner with chalkboard paper and large silver glitter letter stickers.
We also used chalkboard labels and stickers for the jars and boxes.
The birthday girl picked all her favorite candies and we use them to sprinkle on top of the popcorn.
We chose three different flavors of popcorn for the girls to enjoy.
Such a fun party to style!
For the party favors, we got matching PJs for all the girls.
I had to show how cute the girls all looked in their matching pj's! Unfortunately, I didn't get photo permission from all the parents so I couldn't show their faces. But at least you can see how darling they all looked!

As some of you may or may not know I'm an interior designer and I have my own studio for almost 13 years. I started this blog almost 6 years ago & wanted to showcase my love of entertaining, parties and design. I have always loved parties & all things related & love planning events for clients & friends.
I have to say, I was incredibly nervous & intimidated in wanting to attend the BASH conference. I'm not officially a party girl nor am I known within the industry and I felt I would be somewhat out of place. Still, I gathered up my courage because I wanted to attend BASH to learn more about the industry from the BEST & I am so glad I did!
Before I start my top ten moments, no I don't have any pictures of me & fabulous women ( have to get better at that)! And please let me say that I had to leave early Saturday & missed Jenny Keller's cookie class (tear) Eddie Ross (sigh) & the table top design competition-or else I am sure they would of been on my top ten!
Here are my:
10. Playing blackjack with the California party girls ( they were so super sweet to me during the entire conference).
9. The Anders Ruff duo dancing the white tornado-they're so much fun!
8. Coffee talk Friday & having a "moment" with Jen from HWTM about our diet coke obsession.
7. Coffee talk on Saturday-such talented women!
6. Chatting with the Sweet Lulu girls at dinner Friday.
5. Rachel Hollis-two words, AH-mazing!
4. The social media rock star class-seriously didn't want it to end.
3. Amy Atlas-need I say more? Loved her!
2. Loralee Lewis who was wonderful-so real, honest & truly inspirational.
1. Meeting the amazing & talented women attending the conference & seeing my AZ party girls, Rebecca & Shannon from Petite Party Studio (are they not the cutest?!), sweet Kim from The Tomkat Studio & of course, Michelle who I absolutely adore!
It was truly an amazing experience & so thankful to be able to be a part of it!

My clients have a gorgeous stone fireplace in their family room. We just installed a beautiful, warm wood cabinet to the left of the fireplace (see previous post) and I wanted to tie the cabinet into the space. We added a piece of alder molding onto the fireplace to pull over a little warmth, color and texture. We are also adding paneling to the hearth and wall above the mantel to tie the two spaces together!

We installed my clients beautiful custom entertainment cabinet I designed for her family room this week. I'm in love with the delicate fretwork & antique mirror doors that I designed! We also designed the cabinet to have recessed pocket doors so when the television is on, the doors recess beautifully and are out-of-the-way. I love being able to custom design a piece of furniture for my clients. It gives them exactly all the features and details they desire.
