As moms, we live for a night out away from our kids … Can you relate? It truly helps us appreciate what we have at home when we get to spend time with other moms (especially when margaritas are involved)! This event was planned for a group of mamas who deserved a night out and a fun theme to go with it …

… How’s this set up for a Mamas and Margaritas party? We gave guests places to sit or stand, plenty of warmth for a chilly February evening, and placed fun themed details here and there (like these pink Serape blankets).

White linen draped cocktail tables were the perfect place to set a plate or glass while chatting with the girls, and these gorgeous pink floral arrangements (created by Mulberry Row) were admired by all!

I am absolutely in love with this white tufted sofa …

… and gorgeous gold bar from Signature Party Rentals! They really made our event extra special. So did the floating LED lights we added to the pool (in pink, of course).

Mr. Bartender was crafting Palomas and strawberry jalapeno margaritas all night long! I mean, you can’t have a Mamas and Margaritas party without these delicious signature drinks.

I couldn’t help but include this up close and personal with these stunning flowers …

… or these insane pink glasses with a gold rim at the top!

Taco ’bout a party! I honestly don’t think a party is complete without a taco cart. Do you?

It’s really not a party without cute sayings on cocktail napkins either!

Tons of candle light showed off every detail like the metallic gold plastic silverware and bamboo plates we purchased …

… and the food was pure perfection!

Dessert is an absolute must at every party too! Churro Boss pulled out all the stops, and every bite was better than the last!

If you haven’t had their churros topped with ice cream, sauces, and other premium toppings, find a truck ASAP!

Aren’t these pink watercolor and gold foil napkins divine?


These delicious lemon and salted lime bars from Katherine pair nicely with tequila …

… and this pinata was the perfect detail to go with the fun party theme!

Guests stayed late into the evening enjoying each other’s company and meeting new friends. It was truly a momentous mom’s event! 


We are so excited to once again share our monthly inspiration with all of you! Each month, we look forward to getting the chance to sit down and really think about what’s inspiring us, make predictions for the month ahead, and reflect on the past month. As usual, we have each selected a photo that represents our overall inspiration and have paired it with two interior shots and two events that coordinate with its color scheme and overall concept. In addition, we have provided you with our designer tips to keep you on trend for the month ahead.

Tami’s inspired: It’s March and I have hit the ground running! No, that is not me in the inspiration picture #abgoals, but my intention was to take a tiny break after my baby was born mid-January, I have seriously not stopped moving. Last week was my first event of the year, followed by three more really quick after and I am looking forward to some fun ones towards the end of March. I can’t wait to share! This girl is wearing my signature color because it sounds like I will be in event mode for most of the month, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

What’s my designer tip this month? Be a girl on the go! Keep things super accessible in your home, so you can always move through life with ease. I love this refrigerated drink drawer for that purpose especially. Having guests over? Keep it stocked! Planning an early morning work out? You’ll love having cold water to grab on the go. Here are some event items to always have on hand: Personalized cards … Just add a note inside! Make sure to have cute placemats or other things to make your table fun when people come over spur of the moment. Why make things more difficult than they need to be!

Lauren’s inspired: Lucky green, this month! I just started a new construction project this week, and this is the inspiration photo my clients gave me for a pop of color in their kitchen. I’m loving it! I am feeling pretty lucky too! I have great people in my life, great clients, and I am ready to take on all that this month has in store for me. 

What’s my designer tip this month? Green gives you life! If you are not daring enough to paint your cabinets or walls this gorgeous hue, why not add some pillows or at the very least a plant or two. Adding greenery to your space makes a huge difference and you will be sure to notice it. 

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from a really fun Mama’s and Margaritas themed party, a look at a gorgeous finished kitchen, and updates from many more projects we have in the works. Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on April 3rd for all new looks and inspiration! Also, check out our weekly Instastories feature “Designer Day!” @sidebysidedesign to see how we fill our days with the things we love.

Every party (big or small) needs a good theme, and I am pretty sure this one was decided before my daughter Joie’s first birthday was even over! Luckily, I didn’t get over it a full year later! It was too perfect to throw Joie a “Two-tti Frutti” themed party to celebrate big number 2! Here are all the details:

I am beyond grateful to Scott and Lauren for allowing us to use their home for this small family party. It is such a beautiful backdrop and really only needed minimal decorations to feel party ready. Shhh … Don’t tell Lauren! I don’t think she has shared this part of the house yet, and I just gave you a sneak peek! 

A couple cute banners and some metallic balloons introduced the party’s theme. I mixed in a black and white striped tablecloth to edge it up just a bit!

I love how these paper pineapples brightened up the space!

Multi colored plates and napkins made a statement on an otherwise white backdrop …

… and this balloon arrangement was more of a fruit “cocktail” than an arch. It had a little bit of everything!

As it was the morning, we set up a little brunch for all of our guests complete with bagels, lox, veggies, juice …

… and fruit of course!

Another perfect cake designed and created by Ashlee of cream + sugar

Joie loved singing Happy Birthday and blowing out her candles, but she enjoyed her guitar session with her Uncle Aaron most of all!

What did I love most? Being surrounded by family on this special day! The last two years have been such a whirlwind, and I know Joie has most likely felt a little less the center of our world since the arrival of her baby sis. I wanted to make sure that this day was especially all about her, and it was!

Happy Birthday to my adorable two year old! Can’t wait to see what this next year in your life brings and what you choose next year for your party theme! 


It’s the end of the month, and we are extremely grateful for all of the design challenges and experiences that have come our way. Today, we continue to show you some of our favorites … 5 things that truly made us happy in the great big world of design this month. This has proven to be a great way for us to share sneak peeks into projects that are in the works (but not quite ready to show in their entirety), flashbacks of projects from the past, and highlight an interior or event vendor that deserves recognition. Enjoy!

#1: This ski home update! This month ur clients got to vacation in their Vail home for the first time! We got it ready to enjoy but still have some work to do, and I am loving all of the details (especially the incredible Phillip Jeffries wallpapers we have throughout). Don’t worry, we will un”vail” this project soon! (Written by: Lauren)

#2: This perfect place setting! One thing I love about my job is getting the chance to select small details that make a big impact! Something as easy as placing patterned napkins within an otherwise simple tablescape can give me so much joy … No joke! Here is an inspiration board Lauren and I put together for an upcoming event we are planning. I think you will love the finished look … Stay tuned! (Written by: Tami)

#3: This eclectic home! This new project we are working on starts construction next week, but we have already started working on the plans and design and they are going to be great! Be prepared for some fun unexpected colors and eclectic details. We will be sharing the process along the way. (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This vendor! A really fun event took place a few days ago in one of our client’s homes. I don’t want to spoil too many of the details as I will be writing a separate post all about this event and you will be able to see them there, but this delicious cinnamon dessert might give you a small hint! What I do want to mention were the awesome people who made these treats. Churro Boss … You did not disappoint! I loved my ice cream and dulce de leche covered churro to the very last bite! Yummy! (Written by: Tami)

#5: This fabulous fundraiser! So many awesome details are being planned for University Synagogue’s annual gala. The committee has been hard at work reaching out to potential sponsors, creating magical experiences for the opportunity drawing, and getting the word out so everyone can get in on the fun! We take our job on this committee very seriously and have been working to fine tune the menu, flower selections, and other details for the event itself. If you haven’t already, purchase your tickets for this awesome event on April 26th. (Written by: Lauren)
