Cardi B thanks for Inspiring me!

We recently hosted our Portfolio & Perspectives Style Shoot Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia

As we were busy styling up our main table for seating we were inspired… So here goes my story of Inspiration!

So those who are not familiar with the rap star Cardi B she has been headling blogs, news outlets and she was made super popular  by her authentic style on Instagram. This young female rapper just recently dropped her debut album and when I saw the cover art I was so inspired.cardi-b-invasion-of-privacy

I absolutely love loud colors they scream happiness to me. So with the inspiration of the album art cover, I was inspired to design my recent tablescape for our Portfolios & Perspectives Event Design Workshop around the inspiration of the album cover. Searched my mind and took an immediate inventory of items already owned that I can pull this look together. Just a few basics and we got what we envision the color palette that screams fun!Official Cardi B inspired for blog_ copy

A dream realized one that came through it was a cold winter day in January one day after a major extreme winter weather storm and we were blessed with an appointment with the dream Coach Tiara LaShae Johnson we met we talked and upon leaving the session she assisted me in pulling out some dreams and aspirations. During our session she assisted me in creating deadlines for my goals. Starting with what I plan to do in the next seven days, then on the next 2weeks followed by 30 day deadline and last but not least 3 month goal.

Your Dream gift – Waiting for you…

My Gift To You! DSC_9558

Last year during a chat and chew meet up with a few of my friends I gifted each one of them with a gift box and scallop paper. Explaining to each one of them that I desire to give them a gift of their hearts. Not really knowing what that is for each one of them the small gift box and scallop paper represented that for me. I also gifted myself with the box as well. With careful thought when I think of desires of my heart I write it down and place it in the box.

I explain to the ladies to open up their boxes in about six months to see the manifestation of their gifts.

Remembering Yesterday- America’s Top Model 12th Birthday Pool party

The year is 2010! My niece was turning 12! So what better way to celebrate you then a themed pool party. During this time America’s top Model was one of the top rated shows and we thought it would be great to incorporate this concept in a party collection.

For this intimate party of a few friends and family we created a mini candy bar and small beverage station and baked some cupcakes. Hot pink and Zebra was the exciting new trend for parties and we incorporated that color palette in our tablescape and centerpiece. Collages12 copyCustom Box of Questions favors were given to her friends…
