Joyeux Anniversaire

This past weekend I hosted a dinner party for the Frenchman's birthday.  I think it's been about 3 years since I've had the space to do a legit party so I went a little crazy ironing the napkins, but it was a great night of tequila shots, tacos and water balloons. 




Dining chairs from my childhood get a new life


Happy Birthday balloons in every cup turned into water balloons


Ikea dishtowels doubled as napkins


A bar by the front door for easy libations


The table is set


Birthday Banner made from wrapping paper and lots of glue







Bar cleanup the next morning


Lonely limes leftover

Welcome Home

After a year in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn with the cat and the Frenchman, I am feeling so at home in our significantly larger place in LA.
As a designer I was ready for the challenge of unpacking all of our 50+ boxes and getting to work, but at some point in that process I let go of what I wanted our home to be and let it just be home.
