We had the pleasure of planning and designing GQ’s Grammy party which also celebrated the birthdays of one of my friends, The Weeknd. Abel won 2 Grammy’s so it was definitely cause for a huge celebration. The private party was held at a mansion in Beverly Hills and didn’t stop until 4:30 AM. Diplo, Skrillex and A-Trak provided the music for the evening and the celebrity guestlist included Justin Bieber, P. Diddy, Travis Scott, Zendaya, DJ Khaled, Juicy J, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Belly, Machine Gun Kelly, Bella Hadid, Stephen Hill, Jamie Foxx – to name a few. I had to take one of my favorite elements from one of The Weeknd’s music videos and park it (upside down) at the entrance of the party. We took the same model, make, and year car that was featured in “The Hills” video, — we flipped it,…

Quite possibly one of my most favorite designs, this circus themed party editorial blended child-like whimsical elements with a playful bridal look and everything that sparkles in between. I can see this colorful design working for a birthday party, baby shower, a fantasy filled summer soirée, or a unique wedding theme for a couple who likes to get creative and keep things different. I wanted to create something without any traditional wedding elements that was so beautifully detailed that adults and children alike could appreciate it. We sourced really rare elements like the old carousel horses, but also blended new elements in that can be readily sourced today, like the anthropologie plates. (Link to plates below like we do with the clothes). I’ve had event planners and designers all over the world reference this piece from my portfolio when they reach out to me so it makes me so thrilled…

When we were first approached about designing this 60th birthday party, we were given references of cherry blossom trees and navy fabrics. Somehow, through endless rounds of edits and some ideas I was dying to try, we ended up with one of my favorite installations of all time. It was one of those parties where the reveal of the space took about four times longer than we expected it too, because it really took everyone’s breath away. Our client Victoria knew how throw a party! She loves all things design-y, romantic, whimsical, and could gush at every beautiful detail at the exact same pace we were. This one was definitely an ethereal fantasy I will never get tired of revisiting….

Hi Everyone, This holiday season I’ve partnered up with Stella Artois to share with you some of my favorite holiday hosting tips and tricks. I know the holiday season can seem like a whirlwind, and to help keep the stress at bay I’ve listed four hosting tips below. With all the hustle and bustle at this time of the year, I want to encourage you to enjoy time with great company and create memorable moments this holiday season. Tip 1 -Metallic Accents: Nothing is more eye-catching than holiday décor that glows and illuminates a room all on its own. Dazzle your guests by incorporating dazzling gold and metallic accents into your holiday color palette. From bronzed candle holders and cutlery, to gold-trimmed Stella Artois glassware – a touch of gold, will leave a lasting impression for your guests. Tip 2 – Store Bought vs. Homemade Perfecting the art of hosting during the…
There really is nothing better in my professional life, than collaborating with a brand I love on a successful design. When The Weeknd approached us about doing another party to celebrate the birthday of his creative director, Lamar, we wanted something that felt edgy but special with birthday touches that didn’t feel too obvious. We achieved it with the mix of hanging neons tubes, some really great graphics and a neon sign that I gifted the birthday boy with, featuring one of The Weeknd’s iconic lyrics “You wanna be high for this”. Hope you love it. Celebrate Beautifully, x, m
I wanted to compliment the playful aesthetic of our Santa Monica Inspired Party with miniature versions of all the treats you’d find at the pier– with a few elevated touches, of course. Food styling is one of my favorite things to work on and these tiny pairings and sweet treats were the perfect way to carry our look and feel through to the very last bite.
