Our weekend recap
A weekend full of celebrations, love, and of course balloons! Wrapping up another weekend full of amazing families and parties! A busy weekend for us as we were so lucky to be apart of three special birthdays as well as at home styling!
Kicking off the weekend was a gorgeous balloon bee themed install. Filled with bright yellows, florals, and custom made elements to make this extra special! Saturday we were apart of two special occasions celebrating huge milestone first birthdays! From a uniquely adorable red ball themed party, following a magical rainbow and cloud theme we had so much fun putting together the details for these amazing families! Sunday followed with another special celebration filling our space with loved ones and the sweetest birthday girl. It is such a pleasure to be apart of making memories for others and bringing them joy on special days!
Happy Valentine’s Day! There’s so much love going around, I’m loving it. Penelope went off to school today decked out in pink and purple, whats new? We took snacks today for her little class party and everything was cut out with a heart shaped cookie cutter. She took heart shaped cantaloupe, heart shaped mozzarella and carrots and hummus. So fun!
To get in the Valentine’s Day spirit, although this isn’t difficult to do; Penelope and I went to a mama and mini floral workshop a few days ago. This adorable workshop was put on by Vlogger, Ashlyn Carter and Liz of Wee Gather boutique in San Diego. Wee Gather is the cutest space designed for hosting your most intimate social gatherings. There’s always a great photo backdrop that’s decorated and the bathroom has sprinkle wall paper- does it get any better!?
Penelope and I made our floral arrangement and had so much fun creating something beautiful together. She also decided to maker her own little arrangement out of the fancy champagne glass, a girl after my own heart! Wee Gather has a little tree house inside and other fun things for kiddos to play with while the mamas are working on their arrangements. Penelope might of had two or twelve little heart shaped shortbread cookies. We came home with a beautiful floral arrangement and enjoyed spending the morning together.
Derek and I are going to the Miranda Lambert concert tomorrow night to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing her and Jon Pardi in concert. I hope you’re all having an amazing Valentine’s Day filled with lots of love!
We knew when we first stepped into Wee Gather, it was friendship at first sight.
Their bright colored balloon garland warmly welcomed us into a world of color and whimsical decor for their annual summer social and One Year Anniversary party!
Just a few days before the party, we had the opportunity of bringing our bakery-themed playhome to partake in the festivities. And come on – when you see custom playdough stations and a sweet cotton candy cart – could we have said no? No way!
Wee Gather is a boutique event space that hosts workshops, pop-ups, private events, and play dates throughout the year. Pair the space with superstar mommy fitness blogger Sydni Hambsch of Yay For Today co-hosting the fete, and we knew we’d be seeing pops of color and a labor of love!
We were so thrilled to see just how much the little ones (and their moms!) doted on our little playhome tucked into their cozy back lawn. At one point we counted about 8 kids inside! An endless amount of pretend play with their very own backyard bakery.
An extra special thank you to @johannakitzman at @studiofreyjaportraits who captured all these sweet moments!

The perfect San Diego birthday partyA couple of weeks ago I had the immense pleasure of visiting a new-to-me location in Point Loma. Wee Gather is the ultimate event center in San Diego if you're looking for a place to host your kids birthday parties.
Situated on Cañon Street in Point Loma, Wee Gather is the cutest little shop on the street. Instantly as you walk up to the door you are greeted by the colorful and adorable "Wee Gather" sign on the window. Right away you know this will be a fun and adorable venue. And as you walk through the doors you are greeted with even more color. Colors in the shape of stunning balloon installations, handmade by the owner herself.
With a wide open space on the inside, and a perfect outdoor space, this place is ready to be decorated for your very own special birthday party. Pick a theme, pick a color and let's get partying!
Did you know we sometimes open our space up for photo mini sessions? This most recent session with Deena Cormier was so much fun. Check our calendar for other sessions!

My baby girl turned 3 in December. She is a spunky, sweet, girlie girl, and had never really had a special birthday party before. We invited all her preschool friends and family to her very own Care-a-lot for a Rainbow Care Bears Bash. She loved the day, and still talks about it. One of my most special events. She's my rainbow heart, after all.
We were so honored and delighted to host a dinner with ErgoBaby x The Village Magazine last December. Our kid space, transformed into a beautiful sit-down dinner setting for 35 beautiful local Mamas. Dinner, sweets, and amazing swag bags made for an amazing evening. Beautiful photos taken by Meghan Nicole Photography.
Brady's SING Party has to be one of our all-time favorite events. Brady's Mom came to us with this amazing theme and we knew it was going to be so fun. (My kids are huge SING fans and I was very familiar with it and the amazing soundtrack.) Guests sang karaoke and nibbled on popcorn while celebrating 5 year old Brady. The cake, the balloons, the singing. It was SING movie perfection!
