We’re crossing our fingers and toes that my dear friend Erma delivers her baby anytime in the Aquarius zone as we all know Aquarius are the best, creative, artististic, talented zodiac sign ever born (of course, I’m biased to it since I’m an Aquarius myself). Erma is killing us with anticipation since she’s decided not to find out what the sex of her unborn child will be until the big moment actually occurs. 

Susana and I decided to host a baby shower bruch for Erma and since pink and blue were out of the question I was inspired by a Martha Stewart cover and created an Orange and Green table setting.  William of  William Kim Photography came by and shot some of the detail shots for me.  Thank you William I love the pictures.  I wish I could carry you in my back pocket every time I have an event.  I will have to find out how that can be possible.

This collage of pictures was the entrance table.  Initially, we were going to have a garden shower but since Los Angeles decided to dump a lot of rain on us this past week we took the party indoors.  In keeping with the garden theme I set up a table with two topiary as back drop with a string which we later clipped on some baby pictures of Erma.  Each guest was given a clothesline clip and asked to “Never Say Baby” or else you would lose your clip.  Guest with the most clips in the end won a gift.  As favors I framed a picture Susana took of Erma during her pregnancy and gave them as keepsakes for each of the guest.


Brunch was set for 12 with an ‘orange’ theme in mind.  Deanne of Bella Fiore created the centerpieces using roses, tulips, and carnations.  I incorporated candles and white lanterns to fill the space down the center of table.  I wish I had pictures of the amazing buffet table that was set up by The Renaissance Hotel as they served roasted tomato soup, mixed greens salad with chicken and a penne pesto pasta.  Dessert was an apple bread pudding with vanilla ice cream.  I must admit I had seconds.


I can’t wait for the little bundle of joy to come into our lives.  I love you Erma and hope you enjoyed your baby shower brunch.
