I’m so excited to share this party with you today – when I first saw it I think my jaw dropped! Not because it is over-the-top elaborate, but because it is so fabulously chic, and inspiring. This was a launch party designed by Katie of Petite Social and was held in a private courtyard garden. […]

Moroccan themed baby shower

I shared Part 1 of the baby shower here, with the tabletop design, and activities.  Now, I’ll share the food tables and some recipes from our Middle Eastern-Monkey themed shower.
