Guthy Renker Holiday Party!

I had the privilege of attending the Guthy Renker Christmas Party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills!  It was sooo fabulous!  I took pictures of the amazing decor and some of the fashionable guests.  But first... below is a photo of Ms. C., me, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Marylin Monroe and Frank Sinatra on the red carpet.  :))

floral arrangement/reception table

lounge area adjacent to the main ballroom

My absolute favorite part of the decorations
 are these illuminated eucalyptus branches

The floral center pieces were illuminated with LED lights
 and trimmed with various sizes silver candle holders
Love the placement of the napkins!

Sequence table cover!  Who knew!!

Below are "a few photos" of fashionable guests. 

My photo doesn't due his suit justice.

I hope you enjoy these photos and that they are a
 decorating and fashion inspiration!

An Easy Children's Holiday DIY

Infinity scarves are an easy DIY project for children to make and give as this holiday season.

To begin:
cut approximately 15, 1" strips - 12" long, from stretch (knit) fabric.

stitch the ends of the individual strips together to create a circle.  Beads and other baubles can be added to the strips before stitching if desired.

cut a 3" X 2" piece to cover the stitched ends.

*a tee shirt is an excellent choice for this project.  Lay flat, cut off the bottom, measure and cut 1" strips from the bottom of the shirt until you reach the sleeves.

Below are "a few photos" of some of my students finish projects:


 If you have any questions about  this project, please leave me a comment.

D.I.Y. Bridal Shower

 Ms. J. and Ms. N gave a bridal shower for Ms. C at C & O Cocucina Italian Restaurant.   The bride's colors were coral and grey.

This was Ms. J's inspiration for the decorations.

Below "are a few photos":

Ms. J used 2 different size gift boxes- 
taped them for security and cut a hole in the top

 Ms. J used this beautiful silver/grey gift
 wrap and coral satin ribbon to wrap 
the boxes.  A small vase was placed
  inside the box to hold the flowers


Love the coral and clear nailpolish party favors!

Ms. J & Ms. C
