My Little Jedi has a {New Look}

Some of you may already know that we have couple of changes as well as few exciting projects happening in the world of {My Little Jedi}.

Having a marketing background has definitely helped me and my brand along the way. I have had a chance to sit down and work on our brand essence and brand personality and as a result we have a clear direction of where our brand is heading and what we would like to achieve going forward. Having said this, we are very excited about what the future holds for My Little Jedi. The first step is working on our brand logo and we have worked collaboratively with Bec from {Ruby Ruby Designs} and she has created an amazing logo for us.

We were going to timeless, chic, dreamy, simple look & feel in the hues of blush/peach and dove grey. I would like to share our new logo with all of our blog readers and facebook fans & I hope you love it as much as we do. xx

Love affair with {Imperial Trellis}

From one obsession to next, I seriously have a crush on {Imperial Trellis} design. It just looks so chic and it adds touches of royal everywhere it emerges! Kelly Wearstler is one of my favorite designers and I will admit her eye for style and design is impeccable. Last month i bought two amazing imperial trellis cushions from etsy and i absolutely love them!

Due to the love and passion for this trend, i have designed “imperial trellis” inspired party printables. I just love the versatility of this design; it can work for all different types of events from birthdays, baby showers, christening, bridal showers and weddings.

Here is our latest collection of party printables. I hope you love and admire this trend as much as we do. Enjoy xx

Chevron perfection at its finest...

Today's vintage/modern bridal shower has captured my heart and I am so excited to share the beauty of it's tailored simplicity with you all. Brace yourselves ladies, this delightful feature is chevron perfection at its finest. This stunning pink, coral & gray bridal shower was designed & styled by Lindsey, D’Lorah and Jessica of Modern Moments Designs.

For those who know me really well, I worship the chevron design is every shape or form and I totally fell in love and when I saw these pictures featured on the {hostess with the mostess} blog I nearly fell of my chair. There are so many divine elements and I don’t know where to start. From the gorgeous pink peonies, milk glass vessels, hanging crystals, vintage frames, suitcases all the way to the finest details like the “bride to be” spelled out in scrabble letters (my latest addiction), I must say every detail of this elegant bridal showers has been executed to perfection.

And if you would like to see more gorgeousness, make sure you click here! Enjoy Lovelies xx

Damask Infusion

Last weekend i had the pleasure of styling this utterly charming dessert table for the lovely Maryellen who turned 21. Damask infuses a hint of elegance where ever it emerges. I just love the versatility of the {damask} theme & when paired with purple infusion, dove grey and onyx it turned into a sophisticated party celebration.

The amazing sweet treats were made by the super talented Catherine of 2Bites and Mary of Couture Cakes. Catherine used her special wand again and created these amazing damask inspired cupcakes which tied in perfectly with the theme and colour palette. The rock candy, cool mints, chocolate hearts, jelly beans, chocolate maltesers and raspberry clouds were a hit on the night.

The lovely purple orchids & our damask party printables adorned the dessert table perfectly. If you would like us to style your next special event, please send us an email ~
