OAKLAND BABY SHOWER

This is a baby shower I photographed in the crafty Oakland home of Catherine Weis of Local Social. It was such a fun shoot for me & it got published on 100 Layer Cakelet!  Catherine and Terry hosted the party and made all the decor themselves for their friend Amelia. It turned out great & I so wanted to hang out with all the creative gals! I’m inspired to put more effort into my next house party.

Decor:

•The Welcome garland was made by Terry, using this tutorial from Catherine’s site.

•Olive ice cubes for the bloody mary bar & beautiful flower ice cubes.

•Beautiful tarts came from La Farine, and flowers from the Oakland flower market.

•Catherine made her own seed bomb bags, dip-dyed pink fabrics & invitations.

I’m in love with this dining room wall, so vintage & Anthropologie. It reminds me of the last house I worked on where I removed 3 layers of wall paper underneath many layers of paint. Each layer brought me back to the 70′s, 60′s then 50′s.  I can’t wait to start refurbishing my Oakland house!

You don’t see much of Catherine’s painted floors here. It’s really neat, check it out here, featured on Design Sponge.
