With our crazy schedule of events and weddings, we definitely have to make an effort to get out and about to see new things and gather more inspirations to pass on and share with our clients. So this week’s Fab Find will be a veritable smorgasbord of awesome finds!

This past weekend we got to spend a day at Unique LA – an art and design show with tons of local artists and vendors! From paper products to sea salt soap scrubs to handmade handbags, Unique LA was a bustling mecca of artists, shoppers, and snackers. We were so excited to be able to check out their first ever summer show!

Be sure to visit Unique LA’s site for their full list of vendors – and save the date for their 4th annual holiday show in December!

A few of our personal favorites shops/items – some we thought of our clients, and some we just wanted to ourselves. See what you think! Some vendors we already know and love…

Our past couple Brooke & John had these delicious s’muffins as favors for their guests at their reception at the Bella Collina Towne and Golf Club! They were DELICIOUS – none were left at the end of the night!



Awesome coin purses, clutches, purses… love the vintage fabrics!


Something totally unique for gifts or for the home… awesome beer bottle glasses.

Made from recycled glass bottles. Eco-friendly!

We ran into Immaculate Confections… in the flesh! Well… cake. (Remember our past post on this awesome company?)
They were soo delicious and moist! It was hard to walk away!


Adorable paper goods!! Check out these cute wishing trees for weddings, showers and other parties!

There were tons of great vendors and artists and confectioners! Our wallets did not escape unharmed…
We are always on the lookout for new and unique ideas we can pass on to our fabulous clients! From favors to welcome baskets, we can put it all together with the event design and create a completely special event for you and your guests!

Coming June 4th to a store near you is a workshop featuring ideas from the recently released (and incredible!) DIY book, Handmade Weddings. When we saw it, we had to have it! You definitely don’t want to miss out on such an amazing workshop opportunity!

{Paper Source and Chronicle Books invite you to celebrate A Midsummer’s Eve Affair! Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 4 from 1:00 – 3:00pm.

Whether you are a pet owner or simply an animal lover, nothing tugs at the heart strings more than poor animals in need of basic supplies and care, even at shelters. That’s where the A Good Affair team and other amazing vendors came to participate in an amazing event to raise money, donate handmade blankets, pet supplies (and more!) to help and support local organizations, LA Animal Services and the Animal Assistance League of Orange County.


Sweet treats for the pups (by Simply Sweet Cakery) and for the humans.

Lola… with those puppy dog eyes no one can resist!
