The Engagement Party: M&V

January 15th, 2014

Starting our new year off right with a blog post highlighting our very own Valerie Jen and her California engagement party. The event was hosted by the lovely parents and grandparents of the groom at their home in Ladera Ranch, California. Sophistication and elegance are two words that come to mind when describing this dream engagement party. A truly remarkable evening filled with love and warmth – what a better way to celebrate this engagement than in V&V style!

Think you make the perfect pair?  (You caught us, pun intended).  What could be more beautiful than a wedding theme filled with lovely shades of green?   Tie in the theme with a pear flavored signature drink, pear accents on the cake, centerpieces, place settings, or pear place card holders – the possibilities are endless and ensure a wonderful wedding theme unique to the two of you!

Party Pants: Presley’s Birthday Bash

November 1st, 2013

Polka dots, pink and black make for a sweet twist on this “Minnie Mouse” themed first birthday bash. We were delighted to work with Heather Walls, owner of  Sweet Salon in making her daughter’s first birthday as trendy and fun as her Uptown salon. One of the highlights of the party featured a candy station complete with kid friendly sweet treats and goodies bags – here are a few of our favorites!

Dotted Love

October 21st, 2013

Ladylike and inherently feminine, it’s hard not to smile when wearing this preppy print. We love the way these tiny dots can make any outfit, wedding or home light-up with playful sophistication.  This print got its fame back in 1926 when Miss. America was photographed in a one piece polka dotted suit. As the LA Times would note -”You can sign your fashion life away on the polka-dotted line and you’ll never regret it.”
