1. Layer your color palette on top of one another. I chose four sheets, but if you want it to be thicker add more.

2. Cut your tissue paper to fit to your bowl.

3. Make fringe on either side of the paper being sure not to cut to the middle.

4. Staple the tissue paper together down the middle

5. Ruffle the tissue paper with your fingers so you can no longer see the staples.

6. Tape the garland alongside your bowl.

7. Fill with chips, dips, limes, and more!

Amy Clarke Makeup Workshop

When Amy approached me to execute her vision for her very first makeup workshop I couldn’t be more excited! We previously had worked together, and bonded over our love of desserts and relationship to Jesus. Over the course of a couple months we planned the workshop to be more than an event, but rather an experience where the girls that attended would truly feel welcomed, as well as gaining valuable skills. Check out all the photos by Logan Cole, and more on all the vendors who really made this day WOW!

One aspect that we thought was important was to have a full dining experience, complete with mid century table top additions from Hostess Haven, and gorgeous blooms from Bloomwell! Those faux Sputnik chandeliers I created myself to complete the modern look, and I love the way they really enhanced the tablescape!

You Still Got it Mamma Event

If you missed it on Glitter Guide this month, this “You Still Got It Mamma” event was a labor of love, but well worth it! Beijos Events and myself thought it appropriate to give back to mammas that we work alongside with in this creative industry for a time to let our hair down, and connect with one another! Wayfare HQ, located in Costa Mesa, generously provided their fabulous space for us to create something magical for the mamma’s! They were the perfect spot for hosting this event, but they also do much more than that so check them out for upcoming workshops, co-working spaces, or if you want to throw your own party! It truly was a time to encourage and love one another, as well as to serve as a creative catalyst for future events to come! All photos were captured by Megan Welker, however a very long list of vendors made this party AMAZING! Keep reading to get all the deets and rad people behind it!

Have you noticed all the great “you still got it mamma” prints and fun sayings? My girl Kayla Adams really outdid herself in making special tags for all the swag bag goods, invites, paper backdrop, and many more special details!

HUGE thank you to this team! We could NOT have done it without you and I mean that! Thank you for your individual talents. I am a firm believer that it takes all parts of a body to work together, not just one part! xo
