Coral Themed Shower for Baby Elsa

Inspired by a friend’s necklace with coral, seahorse and starfish hanging, Baby Elsa’s shower décor began. We started with a custom invite featuring the coral pattern, graphics of the crib, mobile with a seahorse, starfish, shellfish and the baby Elsa’s name

An “E” made out of starfish was the backdrop of the bar with specialty mimosas and bellinis called “Momosas” and “Babyllinis.” The drink names were on custom coral tent cards and sliced star fruit topped the glasses to resemble starfish.

The dessert table featured red and blue treats with cake pops by Southern Belle’s Cakery, custom cookies from Gumdrop Cookie Shop had the coral pattern and her monogram, seahorse lollipops from SweetLeslie540 on and cupcakes topped with starfish from DD’s cupcakes.

A “Baby Elsa” banner from Party Starters hung above the dessert table. Paper poms from Party Poms on hung above the bar, dessert table and as part of the coral and shells centerpiece. We had a “make a wish” custom frame with tealight candles to float in the pool after making a wish for the mom-to-be.

Seahorse and coral napkins from Pineapples, Palms, Etc. were displayed in a coral piece on the food table. Custom coral patterned picks were in the mini quiche along with other delicious appetizers made by the mom-to-be’s friend.

This was a special day with friends and family to celebrate my sister and soon to be niece.

Jessica Ricci Jewelry Featured on Apartment Therapy Blog

Jessica Ricci Jewelry's new boutique in Providence, RI featured on one of our favorite blogs,

Boutiques are always excellent sources for home inspiration — and this bright shop in Rhode Island's Hope Artiste Village is no exception. Jessica Ricci creates decorative treasures and delicate jewelry inspired by her world travels and displays them in re-purposed furniture, modernized with coats of white and silver paint.

The space is full of clever ideas from window shutters used as hanging shelving to a vintage mirror transformed into a dramatic coffee table. The sparkling jewelry — much of which is based on vintage home goods such as keys and linens — and dainty miniature spoons and forks are displayed humbly in hanging lanterns and on a bed of black beans. The mostly-windowless shop is opened up with loosely painted silver lines around Jessica's travel photographs, that serve as both informal frames for the artwork and give the impression of a glimpse outdoors. See some "before" photographs of the space on Jessica Ricci's blog and visit her website,, to see more of her work.

The signature non-alcoholic drink was “Captain Colson’s Ocean Potion” which was a mixture of pineapple, ginger ale, apple cider and white grape juice. There were also custom “Captain Colson’s First Birthday” koozies and napkins. Photography by Alana Harris Photography.
