You know the old woman's trash is another woman's treasure? Well, this weekend, after a few weeks of planning, I put that old saying to the test when I hosted a Paris themed swap party at my place.

Because I knew my friends (and myself included) had tons of items sitting in their closets (purses, jewelry, shoes, clothes, wallets, beauty products, etc.) they no longer use or wore, I asked if they would graciously donate them to me for a swap party. I mean think about it, just because you no longer use or want those items, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t want them either. And besides, what could be better than shopping in your friend's closet?

So, instead of throwing out those perfectly good items, I gathered them up for the Day in Paris, Swap ‘til You Drop event. And what a success! We ate, drank and swapped the entire night...we were even able to get in a few rounds of Taboo! It truly turned out to be an amazing event.

I would like to thank all of the ladies who participated and helped make the swap party a success. It’s because of you I was able to pull it off.

Check out a few of the pictures from Saturday's event!

In preparation for an upcoming baby shower, we’re using this beautiful diaper cake as inspiration for the celebration of a new arrival.

Originally designed to welcome another little lady into the world, this diaper cake is full of elegance and loaded with charm...and that’s exactly why we love it! And the color scheme is perfect for the early Spring shower we're planning.

As we begin planning, designing and gathering our ideas, we’re taking a moment to share a few of the most adorable diaper cakes we’ve ever seen. We especially love the diaper cupcake!

They’re the cutest thing ever! Wouldn’t you agree?

In preparation for our upcoming A Day in Paris, Swap ‘til You Drop event, we’ve put together a fabulous inspiration board.

Filled with ideas for our swap party, we’ve decided to use different shades of pink (our absolute favorite color), and a black damask print to add a little elegance to the d├ęcor. We also love the idea of pairing black and white polka dots for a little extra fun.

But what’s a Swap ‘til you Drop event you ask? Well, there’s the idea.

As ladies, most of us have a few items sitting in our closet (purses, jewelry, shoes, wallets, blouses, scarves, etc.) we no longer use. And well, just because you no longer use or want them, doesn’t mean someone else won’t want them either. You know the old saying -- one woman's trash is another woman's treasure. So instead of throwing out those perfectly good items, why not swap them for other fabulous items? We know there's nothing better than shopping in your friend's closet; with a glass of champagne and delicious hors d'oeuvres in hand of course.

Those who have donated their items will attend the event, meet some fabulous women, have cocktails and hors d'oeuvres and then swap, not shop (cause it’s free) for items others have donated. Cool huh?! We think so too!

Take a look at what we’ve got in store! We can’t wait until the big event.

Last month we planned a One-derland celebration for a little girl named MJ who was celebrating her first birthday. Well, we're long overdue -- but here we are, finally sharing the photos from her adorable celebration.

Taking advantage of her December 28th birth date, we used winter as the theme; decorating with snowflakes, pink and silver ornaments and a gorgeous white "snowball" fabric table cloth.

The tiny guests even got a chance to make their own snow!

Check out a few pictures from the event.
