Go Glamping – Posh Play date

I LOVE kids, fashion and event planning so when I had the opportunity to combine all these passions with this white-themed glamping photo shoot that I produced and styled in partnership with Mialandyn  I got SOO excited!   With a mix of fashions and accessories from Juliet’s closet and what the models brought to set, I styled each of these cuties in the outfits shown below.  Using just white and metallic accents, each girl looked so sweet in their head-to-toe whites, didn’t they?

Sofia, Madelyn, and Winter were such precious dolls to work with!  Check out their other photo shoot with me for our fab_fourth here.

For this shoot, we wanted to offer a preview of the upcoming Fab Kids Summer Glamp that has been in my head for half a year.  I envisioned white teepees (these are rentable and owned by Mialandyn Events), smores sets and a glamping atmostphere and I think this shoot really brought those ideas to life!

kids parties, how to plan a kids party

If you want to style a picturesque glamping play date or party at your own home, here are the elements I suggest you find:

  • greenery (whether it be plants as shown here, or faux grass decorative placemats and balls, or fresh flowers what would a glamping scene be without a little bit of the outdoors brought in)?
  • teepee or tent
  • smores (everything from smores flavored Chips Ahoy cookies, to cake pops, to rice krispy treats and cereals are available at your nearest grocer now)
  • lots of pillows which make any lounging area more comfy and isn’t that what we’re all trying to achieve when glamping?
  • decorative mat to sit on.  We chose fur ‘cuz what is more luxe than that?  white fur blanket for underneath the teepee and a real pony-haired piece for the smores making area.  But any pretty blanket or rug will do!
  • wild animals – I brought out white stuffed animals for this all-white shoot but for your glamping scene, any stuffed animal will help bring out the outdoors in while giving the kids a cute prop to pose with.

The snack area featured these pretty little baskets, milk bottles and party straws, pretzels and popcorn, and even chocolate covered Marshmallows! Special thanks to Brooklyn Cake Pops who specially designed and created these sparkly desserts just for our shoot!

Fab Kids 4th of July Party – Indoor play date


If you believe in celebrating in style, and you look for excuses to throw a good party, having kids won’t stop that party planning perfectionist in you.  At least that’s what I’ve learned.  I’m THAT mom who offers to host a play date and then surprises everyone with a full-out professionally coordinated, themed event. This July 4th have a Fab Fourth!  It’s is an easy time to decorate and really jump into a theme.  After all, everyone has some form of red white and/or blue in their homes and closets! Here is some inspiration for you to host a Fab 4th of July party or play date indoors.

I encourage you to have a Fab Fourth with kids in the comfort of your own home!  Simply stick to a strict color theme of red white and blue, use what you have and ask everyone to dress in theme.  Here, in partnership with Mialandyn Events, we decorated her rental teepees with fringe and taped-on star cutouts.  (Taping on additional decor is such an easy and clever way to temporarily transform a plain teepee to match any holiday or theme!) Next we added some matching fur blankets and patriotic pillows to complete the luxe look.  We also added fun toddler toys and balloons inside which invited kids to explore and play.

Encourage a pretend picnic with gingham red picnic blanket laid out and kid-friendly finger foods like healthy snacks from Fresh Kids, blueberries in a star dish, star-shaped cake pops from Current Mood, sparkly red marshmallows and 3D chocolate covered Oreo cookies from Brooklyn Cake Pops!  Red white and blue napkins, cake platter and star-shaped dishes help carry out the theme.

Ask play date guests (moms and kids alike) to dress head-to-toe in red white and blue and you’ll be surprised how they take to the fashion challenge. Having the kids match REALLY makes for some adorable shots and brings out the momarazzi in all of us!

I had so much fun styling all the kids for this shoot with pieces from their closets and my daughter’s combined.
