A Miho Experience

Party Your Face Off

You know your frands are coming up in the world when they now boast their very own studio/warehouse space. The Romantik Studio is located in Carlsbad, CA and is co-owned by Rachael at Siren Floral Co and Kasia at Plenty of Petals. I'm not even ashamed to admit they got this place in order faster than it takes me to do a week's worth of laundry (many thank you's to Nathan and Garrett for their countless hours too). They had an opening party/fundraiser for The Hendrix's - who are going through a heartbreaking fight with a rare form of cancer. All donations went straight to the family.

The most delicious tapas and libations were courtesy of A Miho Experience and beautiful glassware always from Hostess Haven. Here are a few photos from their opening event. Rico over at Amigo Booth brought the party vibes for sure - and I mixed some of their stellar shots in for good measure.

**DISCLAIMER: I was pretty not sober when I was taking the bulk of these so never you mind the quality. Just know they reflect what a wonderful time I had. :)


Betsy's Birthday

You know it's gonna be a rul good time when Betsy (SMID) and Farra (Hostess Haven) throw a party. And you definitely know your hostess skills will be put to complete shame, but you're strangely okay with that too.

In case you were wondering, Betsy is one of my closest friends, my interior design sensei, and an overall badass lady boss. For her birthday she wanted nothing more than to have an intimate backyard dinner with her closest. The theme she and Farra brainstormed up was 'cactus and crystals' - and it couldn't have turned out more beautifully. I rarely have merry-making envy but I can't help it with these guys - they win so hard every single time.

A special thanks to Juan (A Miho Experience) for the most epic food - way to work an event while under-the-weather where you were also an esteemed guest LOL. Thanks to Tina (Miss Multee) for the calligraphy which will be making an appearance in one of my upcoming dinner parties. And thank you to Melissa (Pow Wow Design Studio) for some of the gorgeous vintage pieces - we were sooo bummed you and Corbin couldn't make it!

Am I lucky to have such inspiring and creative friends? Sure. But am I more lucky to have good people in my life that make me a better person? Most def. Love you, Betsy.

p.s. Jess and Betsy share a birthday and he tricked me into coming out to see Bets while he's sitting at home recovering from an ACL surgery alone on his birthday. You're a gem, Jess Downer.
