ESTO SER LOS CARNAVALES? BUT, HOW TO SAY ‟AGUA GUARO Y CAMPANA”?

Friday, February 28, 2014


Carnival, oh sinful day!!  How doesth one prepare for such a feast? When in Venice thou must wear masks, over at Bourbon Street and beseech plenty a jeweled necks, head to Rio and cloth shall be scarce.  Leaving my merchant of Venice speech aside, allow yourself to contemplate what is your idea of a sinful day and pack accordingly... Fare thee well!
A retail therapy stop at BOA Surf House where I intended to practice some restraint and buy just one piece (see blue and white pants above) went a tad overboard.  Especially when after my purchase on my way out, there they were, the cutest cap toe espadrilles. I justified myself as these are an ode to my Parisian style veneration and if that excuse is not good enough, then I am following my own Carnival advice and consider them my Sin.

HELLO KITTY CHIC PARTY

Wednesday, February 26, 2014







































So My daughter loves Kitty and I convinced myself that you can make anything turn up chic with one key focus and that is to keep it simple. Instead of the new color scheme of the stylish cat, I chose to use the classic blue jumper wearing, apple eating, outdoorsy feline. So, the color scheme turned out to be white, blue, red and some yellow.
My mother in law made the delicious and beautiful cake and all the yummy and great looking desserts are from Vanille.
The banner, the sunflowers, and the die cut bows are from Etsy.
Tabletop collection is from Target.
And the tablecloth, oohhh the puffy thousand-layer tule tablecloth, was made at Encajes y Manualidades.
The piñata was handmade by the ladies at the Instituto Panameño de Habilitación Especial located in Bethania. They make the most beautiful piñatas! They are carton sculptures in fact, so much so, that breaking them can spurt a heavy case of mixed feelings.. Oh well, I´ll recover.
