Princess Party Extravaganza

I wish I could take credit for all these amazing princess party ideas but alas I cannot. My friend Jill Green who writes the blog Homemade by Jill  is responsible for all this cuteness.  Her daughter Ruby (above) was the reigning princess and everything from the handmade princess dress to the fondant princess castle literally took the cake. I just took the pictures. Also, I couldn’t help but put in a few of my little Georgiana so sorry for her photo bombing through out this post. Enjoy!

A little hidden gem in  Santa Barbara is the Four Season’s Coral Casino. Its basically a private club across from the Four Seasons that does spectacular events right on the ocean front. Here’s little window into the Coral Casino’s epic entertaining spot.
