When it came time to plan my daughter Ripley’s fifth birthday celebration, I realized just how much we’re alike. She didn’t want a big party; she wanted to invite three friends for a horseback riding lesson in Brentwood followed by a picnic brunch. As much as I love riding, I was obviously happy to oblige. […]

There are few holidays kids seem to enjoy as much as Easter. I love getting into the spirit, and coming up with ways to create even more fun. The past two years my good friend and go-to crafting guru Amy Blessing helped put on a chic easter egg hunt. They were so successful we decided to […]
I’ve yet to visit Peggy North’s Venice gem, Fire and Creme, and leave uninspired. And on a recent visit, I was so in love with the all adorable cherry items she had in-store, I just had to throw a party for the little ones that incorporated them. To put it all together, I asked Peggy to […]

I was first introduced to Peggy and her shop, Fire and Creme, through my friend Ambre – and loved both instantly. Wonderfully laid-back and a study in effortless cool, she is an endless source of inspiration and a go-to for all things amazing for little ones (especially their parties). Born and raised in Paris, she […]
I’ve been a huge fan of Peggy North’s next-level party boutique, Fire and Creme, since it opened in 2013. Located on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice, this little slice of heaven for kids (and adults) has only become more wonderful with time, growing in leaps and bounds in terms of their product offering and services provided.

As I shared yesterday, the decor elements for Ripley’s princess-themed party were so great, and Annie Campbell’s menu for the day was the icing on the cake.
For her fourth birthday, all Ripley wanted was a princess-themed celebration, and how could I refuse. To put it all together, I enlisted the help of some of my favorite ladies, including decor and design from Fire and Creme, florals from Moon Canyon, thoughtful touches from Amy Blessing and delicious bites and dessert from Annie Campbell. The end result: a magical, modern take on the princess theme, and a day that Rip will not soon forget.
For Valentine’s Day this year – as I’ve shared before, this is one occasion that we definitely prefer to spend at home – we hosted a small get-together with family and close friends. The evening featured simple, sweet touches for a laid-back gathering that felt like the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.
Tanner started surf lessons this past June and was instantly hooked, so all he wanted for his birthday this year was a party on the beach. For this laid-back surf-themed celebration, I called on the amazing Peggy North of the equally amazing Fire and Creme to help me put it all together.
For Ripley’s third birthday, all she wanted was a little girl’s Strawberry Shortcake party, and that’s just what she got. I asked the amazing Peggy North from Fire and Creme to help me in putting together all of the festivities, and it turned out beautifully – and Ripley, of course, had the time of her life.
For Tanner’s 5th Birthday, all he wanted was a circus-themed celebration. This year, I asked Peggy from my favorite, Fire and Creme, to help me plan, which made it all the better. Tanner had the absolute best time, and the party was festive, colorful, and so much fun.
My French friend Ambre always knows all the cutest kids sites and stores, so when she told me that her friend Peggy North had just opened a great new kids store on Lincoln in Venice, I ran! Peggy, also a beautiful Parisian, now lives in Venice with her husband and two stunning sons, and has created a gem for all stylish mothers. Fire and Creme is a little slice of heaven located a block from General Store. In it, she carries all things chic for our little ones – from the most insane costumes for dress up, to adorable baskets that she personalizes herself, to amazing customized cow skulls and irresistable toys and décor.
