Vienna’s 1st Birthday


Happy birthday to our darling Vienna! Your are and always will be our sunshine.

“Vienna” crown: – I am so excited to have this beautiful  crown that can be worn for future birthdays!

Classic Cakes: 317.844.6901 – All of our family cakes are from Classic Cakes in Carmel. Our favorite is almond with chocolate truffle filling. Literally, the best!

Gold canvas tent from Target: – I loved having a little tent at the party so the kids had a place to play and have fun.

Decorations from Paper Source: Keystone Fashion Mall – I loved having little gold crowns and gold signs to help decorate the space. I saved all the little crowns so we could use them for future birthdays!

LV Pop-up Shop

During my trip to NYC with the Fashion Arts Society, a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of visiting the Louis Vuitton Pop-up shop! We had the most wonderful curated experience learning about the super cool Jeff Koons collaboration. The Van Gogh was my favorite piece, I couldn’t resist the swirling blue sky!
