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.


•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.
