the coolest baby shower ever

IMG_4051 my wonderful friend, molly, is about to welcome a new little boy into the world any day now. a few weeks ago, her talented coworker tiffany munster, of soiree weddings and events, threw her the most well-styled, deliciously catered, fun and hipster-inspired baby shower at the beautiful headquarters of stem line creative. in attendance were some of the coolest people in the chicago wedding industry - including naomi from tipsy cake, who brought over a blue velvet sugar-dinosaur topped cake for the mum-to-be.

i wish i had some photos from the actual night; here are the menu signs and place cards i put together for the shower. i can't wait to meet molly's little boy, and if he's anything like his mum, he'll have excellent taste - in friends and design.

i am so pleased and thrilled and excited to be leading a terrarium-making workshop at the both sides gallery space on tuesday evening, august 6th from 7-9pm. i'm envisioning little work stations, the materials clearly marked with calligraphy signs, beautiful glass vessels in which students will be planting vibrant succulents. not to mention some delicious neighborhood snacks, candlelight, and good company.

if you're a chicago resident (or know you'll be in chicago that day), and you'd like to reserve a spot in the class (only 20 spots open), send me an email at jilly.ink@gmail.com. class is $45 and includes all materials. what a beautiful way to bring some easily-managed life into your home or office!
