A few weeks ago, a few of my blogger friends, Monica and Jesi, and I hosted a brunch bash for Mommy-to-be Samantha who is having a girl in a few weeks! Since hosting and attending parties runs in my family blood, I knew we needed to start the party planning with a theme. If you read Sam’s blog you know she loves leopard and pink, so that’s where we started. I told my sister, Eleni, that we wanted leopard and pink and she created a custom invite with its own box for the bash. She’s pretty talented like that and grateful she is my sister!
Then Monica and I had some brain storming food and decorations sessions. Monica really is the hostess with the mostest! She always hosts the best holiday parties and her apartment is so cute and it was perfect for the bash. P.S. she also has the best pom pom fluffing skills. Monica and Jesi also made the adorable tulle skirt for the table. Seriously, all my friends are so talented. And how beautiful was Sam’s flower crown that Jesi put together in about five minutes. Let’s also not forget about the cute sign – so good Jesi!
It really does take a village to raise a child, I mean throw a party.. We also enlisted our friend Rachel over at Paris312 for the pretty pink balloons with tassels – a must decoration item for all your parties. Then my mom, Angie, made the floral arrangements pulling in the dark hues from the leopard print of the invite and a variety of pink flowers.
Last but not least, all of Sam’s guests arrived and we had a fun afternoon celebrating Baby Gold Coast Girl. We hope you had a fabulous time Sam and we all can’t wait to meet her! Thank you co-hosts for throwing an awesome bash with me!
P.S. Ladies, make sure to pop your champagne bottle when Sam pops too!

Today’s post is a collaboration with non other than Limani Designs! We’re so excited to both share this pretty and fun Bestie Bash styled photography shoot we did a couple of weeks ago with Eleni, Debi and Marina – the cutest girls ever! This styled shoot was also really sweet because it got featured as the party of the day on Catch My Party (full album). It was so exciting seeing my sister and mom’s custom work featured and my photographs 😉 My friend Esther was also such a huge help because she did the girls’ makeup and even mine when I snuck into a couple of photos (at the end) and handed off the camera to Eleni, my sister. Everything came together so nicely and we had a lot of fun and all those laughs are actually real!! Have a very lovely Valentine’s weekend <3
