Yes, we love big production super detailed, over the top birthday parties. (As evidenced by our party archive here.) But we also just LOOOOOVE a casual gathering in the backyard full of beautiful food, a handmade cake, and lots of love for the birthday boy. This party for little Juni Cruz is the most perfect mix of pretty, mama-friendly details and amazing food. No surprise since his padres are Farra and Juan.
Remember Juni’s beautiful nursery we posted in January?! That wallpaper still kills us.
Farra was in charge of cakes and desserts, Juan was in charge of the feast. Nice pairing, you two.
GIMME that elote. Now.
Get it, little dude! Happy Birthday Juni. Thanks for sharing this celebration with us, Farra and Juan!

Our friend Catherine just finished redesigning her son’s room and we’re so excited to be able to share it with you! She worked with Land of Nod and Schoolhouse Electric for some of the items and DIYed other pieces, including that amazing room swing. Holden’s new room has a nice woodsy-modern feel, perfect for a boy growing up in the East Bay.
She mixed in family photos and artwork on his gallery wall, including that lion piece by Catherine’s mom, Carole Weis.
How amazing is that map wall!? So perfect for this room. So are the DIY rope shelves.
Such a perfect little corner.
Love that little green lamp from Schoolhouse Electric.
Looks like this big guy is pretty darn happy in his new room. Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Cat! We love it.

We’ve featured this little doll on our blog before in a little portrait session her mama took, but today we have the entire family photographed by To Live To Love Photography. They’re super sweet and the colors are just gorgeous against all the green of summer.
What a lovely little memory of summer for this four.
