If you haven’t already heard, we are so proud to have just launched our Spring Collection of The Mrs. Box–our little wedding heirloom ring boxes made from vintage French velvet. We received an early shipment of some of our favorite colors, which are now available for purchase, with the rest to follow in a few short weeks. We thought you’d love a little sneak peek of what we came up with this time, along with our stylist cohorts, Type A Society. Our dear friends, Jose Villa, along with Joel Serrato, were on hand to shoot these gorgeous images and they always make us look so good. And are you obsessed with those rings as much as we are? You can find them at Trumpet and Horn! And a very special thanks to artists Jenny Sanders of Graceline Art for her watercolor of our wreath and to Lisa Rae of The Dancing Pine for her water color of the lovely Pantone strips. We knew you’d love!

Last spring, I had the chance to work on a project for El Encanto Hotel in Santa Barbara, alongside a super fabulous talented team: Jen Huang, 1011 Makeup and Anna Le Pley Taylor. One of the elements we worked on styling was a surprise birthday party, which we are so excited to share with you today! More to come from this super fun collaboration!
