this post is something i’m really excited and proud of! i love how everything came together, and i can’t wait to tell you all about it so you can have one of these magical floor parties of your own. throw one in your backyard, string up some lights, project a cool saying on the wall and voila!
hosting events and workshops is one of my absolute favorite things to do. so when epson asked me if i could come up with some alternate ways of using a home projector system my mind immediately went to parties. i feel like i constantly have something to celebrate or plan and decorate for and i thought it would be fun to have something that you could throw up on the wall to instantly make it feel like a celebration.
so we created party downloads! four different sayings and phrases that you can download and project on the wall of your own gatherings (pst, you can enter to win one of the projectors after the jump!). we picked my favorite, make your own magic, and threw a little party around the moon theme.
kristen and amy from moon canyon styled the event, from the hand-painted rocks to the perfect centerpieces, they exceeded my expectations as usual. and heirloom la created a gorgeous spread of food and the most delicious cocktails you’ve ever tasted.
they really are creative culinary geniuses! i mean, the cocktail had edible silver flakes in it!
amy painted all of the rocks for the table and made individual mini moon watercolor place cards for everyone. the magic was in the details for this party.
i loved the idea of having a floor party…and surrounding the table with pillows and mini stools for the platters of food to be easily accessed.
we got the most beautiful assortment of pillows, moroccan rugs and tables from found rentals, they have a wonderful selection of vintage pieces that you can rent for parties. in love with all of the pillow textiles…
the colors were straight out of a dream and jesse captured the day perfectly.
we used the powerLite home cinema 2000 projector from Epson to project the saying on the wall. it worked great! we’ve also been enjoying using it in the studio to watch huge episodes of Girls on the wall during lunch time!

are you friends with your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend? i find this topic to be pretty interesting…
eggs and toast is one of my morning staples. but i recently went on a two week cleanse where i wasn’t eating gluten, so i had to switch up my routine. these are a pretty and colorful breakfast option for those days when you want to keep it light…and they look cool too, right??
• red, orange + yellow bell peppers
• red onion
• maldon salt
• black pepper
• green onion
• olive oil spray
(optional: hot sauce or sriracha)
how to make them:
• pre-heat the oven to 275°F. grease a cookie sheet, slice the avocados in half and scoop on the inside of the circle to make room for the egg and place on the pan. crack an egg and carefully place inside the avocado. we propped the avocados up against each other so they wouldn’t tip over and spill the egg out the side. cook for 35-40 minutes, check on them occasionally.
• cut the red onion onion in half at the widest part and then cut each side again to make 1/4 -1/2″ thick pieces. pull out the largest outer rings. place a frying pan over medium-high heat and grease with oil. place the red onion in the pan, cook on one side for 2 minutes and then flip over. next, crack an egg in the center. some of the egg many spill out from under but don’t worry, you can peel that off later. cover with a lid and cook until desired consistency.
• for the peppers, wash and dry them – start at the bottom and move up an 1 1/2″ and cut. creating a cup with the bottom of the pepper. then cut the remaining pepper into 1/2- 3/4″ rings. clean out the seeds and any white flesh. place in a greased skillet over medium-high heat. cook on one side for 2-3 minutes and then flip over. crack an egg in the center and then cover with a lid. cook until desired consistency.
• crop green onion + parsley. serve in bowls along side salt, black pepper and hot sauce as toppings and garnish. delicious!
