Rewind about three months ago when Elaina of Boutique Bites followed up with an inquiry I sent through The Everygirl for an open position they had. From there we talked about my potential employment with Boutique Bites managing their Marketing and Web efforts. After visiting their perfect new, brick and white-walled event space in the Fulton Market, I knew this was a connection I’d always be grateful for.

The fast forward about two months and we reached out to Elaina to use the space for our winter-themed inspriation shoot. And, as assumed, it provided just the perfect backdrop for our shoot. And, as assumed, my adoration for Elaina and her team only flourished. Shortly thereafter, Elaina reached out to me to shoot her mother’s surprise birthday party and I immediately said “Yes!”. With catering from her team, their new space Brique, and florals from Oliver Dogwood, it’s yet another example of collaboration and attention to details we all drool over.

So sit back, get your pinterest button ready for party inspiration and enjoy her mother’s adorable reation to the surprise. xo
