Sip & See

It all started with my friend Whitney from Whitney Hartmann Photography who was looking to photograph a baby shower.  I didn’t have a baby shower planned but I wanted to help her out so I offered to create a mock baby shower.  She asked me why I didn’t just plan a real baby shower for myself.  I said I didn’t feel it was appropriate for me to invite people to a baby shower – basically saying, I’m having a baby, buy me a gift (…please).  So as we continued to talk about the photoshoot, she had a brilliant idea.  “Why not have a Sip & See?  That’s a REAL event and parents throw the party.”  I was confused and had no idea what this was.  She explained that it was a Meet & Greet.  People want to meet the baby and parents do this to show off their baby.  WHAT A FANTASTIC IDEA!  So, now I’m planning a Sip & See and I have my inspiration board put together.  Of course, we’re so far out (4 months) so I’m sure my ideas will change but at least I have a starting point.  Inspiration boards are allowed to change.  🙂

Inspiration Board for Sip & See

I know where I want to rent/buy all of the items for the Meet & Greet.  Who better to get the items from than my trusted vendors?!  So, be on the lookout for some orders Petite Reve Chocolates/Petite Reve Cafe, Dream Maker Floral, Ventura Rental Party Center, La Tavola Linens, Tiny Prints, and some of my favorite shops on Etsy.  Super excited!!!

It’s a Beautiful Day

It’s a beautiful day and I hope you all had a great weekend.  I was finally able to figure out how to change my password (thanks, Molly!) on this Blog which will hopefully mean more posts! 

Belle Journee

Belle Journee was a successful event even though it was an overcast day.  The venue looked absolutely amazing because of all of the vendor booths and the displays that were presented by Ventura Rental Party Center.  I love those ladies there!  They are so creative and friendly…they make my job easy.

Look for some pictures on our Facebook page ( and soon to be posted on our website.  Thank you to Lavender & Twine for the wonderful pictures.

What’s Next?!

Our next big event is decorating the gazebo at the Ojai Film Festival on 6 November for the No More Nylons Women in Business Social!  Thanks, Jodi for asking me to do this challenge.  I’m still coming up with some ideas and I’m hoping to have my inspiration board together soon.
