Celebrate In Style

Baby showers. Get them right and the mama-to-be can feel like the queen she is but opt for cheesy games and tacky décor and it’s a whole other story. Stylist Jessica at Lace In The Desert (check out her Instagram page for plenty of inspo) used her skills to create a beautiful baby shower with not a plastic pacifier in sight…

It was an absolute joy to style and plan Katherine’s baby shower; an intimate garden soirée. I wanted the table to be elegant and chose a muted colour palette with gold accents. The Lace In The Desert brand new golden edged plates from Bali were the first piece of tableware to be chosen and it all flowed out from there. Using our brass planters and bud vases, Bliss Flowers did the most wonderful job of bringing my floral vision to life – whimsical, natural and abundance of textures.

I designed some simple menus and name cards, finishing off the name cards with gold leaf which was so much fun but oh so messy! Innovative Hiring have a brilliant selection of furniture hire and I especially loved their new hairpin tables and directors chairs which fitted the garden location perfectly.

As finishing touches, I designed some signs and used some of the brand new collection from White Moss for some final accents. Yummy catering from Picnic Basket ensured everyone was well fed and The Party did a wonderful job at bringing my cake topper idea to life.

Psst… If you have a special occasion that needs an extra gorgeous touch then Jessica can style everything from weddings to baby showers, dinner parties to kids birthdays and all in-between!

‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.’ You’re probably aware of the social media campaign that’s tearing its way around the world - women have encountered harassment in all forms  and suffered in silence for too long. This is the time to confront the belittlement and stand united. For ourselves, for our friends, our sisters, mothers, daughters - for anyone we know who may be suffering. #metoo
Dubai’s latest beachfront destination @lamerdubai opened today and it’s gorgeous! Currently only first phase open (with more to come) but there are already kids playgrounds, restaurants, cafes, activities, in- waster hammocks, space to scoot and loads more plus it’s so pretty! Had such fun exploring- more on stories! 🚣
Friday night feels... #moveoverbeyonce
Our Editor and her fam headed out to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve early this morning for an @arabianadventures desert safari - a great way to get that all-important dose of nature and see all sorts of creatures, from camels to sand fish, oryx, gazelles and more in a pristine desert environment, and a yummy picnic brekkie too - perfect for when the weather cools or if you have visitors in town! 🐪🐪🐪🐪
