This is a v. exciting morning here at 100LC HQ you guys. We get to share this pretty shoot we put together AND offer so many of the products we used for sale in our shop! We’ve got a whole range of pretties on sale starting right now, so as soon as you’ve had time to pin every image below, head over to the Pop-Up Shop and start the retail therapy! We’ll be shopping in there with you.
Backyard parties are one of the great joys of summer, don’t you think? We thought we’d get a jump on the season with a little party for our 100LC family. It was so nice to enjoy dinner with our families, as opposed to how we usually spend time together – which is working on 100LC! We made a fun little cocktail hour set up using Indian block-printed tapestries, a vintage rug, and a few cute poufs. Our cocktail came from a Design*Sponge post – the Cardamom Rose cocktail. Twas highly delicious, and we definitely recommend that you try it!
We bought all of the flowers at the Flower Market in downtown LA and assembled them the day of the shoot. DIY-ing flowers is totally doable for a small party! The secret is floral foam.
Our feather-topped drink stirrers really prettied up the rustic elements of our backyard. (Kits are on sale in the shop right now!) And the solar-powered lanterns from Allsop Garden made setting up lighting in the trees really a snap.
That’s us enjoying a little drink together!
For dinner we set up a communal table on the patio using gorgeous, vintage pieces from Casa de Perrin, textiles from Nancy Straughan, and truly delicious, seasonal food from Whoa Nelly! Catering. Those girls really out-did themselves! J & R Foods provided extremely cute and extremely tasty jars of harissa as favors. You guys, we’ve tasted almost all of their jams and spreads and not one has disappointed! They are divine, and would be such a welcome treat as a take-home from any event.
Those adorable pink Moroccan tea glasses are on sale in the shop right now too. (Hint, hint.)
Um, fava bean puree with homemade flatbread? We’re thinking we should be hiring Whoa Nelly! to cater our dinners every night. The preserved lemon from SQIRL was incredibly delicious too. We’ll be purchasing a jar or two more of those soon!
A 100LC family party wouldn’t be complete without Jillian’s little Liam and Kristina’s little Dashiell! Those boys.
Awwww our snuggly engaged couple! Aren’t they sweet? The Moroccan Wedding blanket couldn’t have found a better pair.
Thanks so much for everyone who graciously offered to contribute to the shoot! Just looking at the photos is making us so excited for summer! Now, 1 – 2 – 3 … GO! The shopping madness in the Pop-Up Shop has begun!
