For anyone looking for inspiration for a Wizard of Oz-themed birthday party, I hope my amateur pics of my daughter’s 4th bday celebration help you out. Ideas: MoM. Lifesaver: Etsy. Cake: Something Sweet.
"Somewhere over the rainbow" birthday hats
"Follow the yellow brick road" up the chocolate and vanilla cake. Look, ruby slippers!
"I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore" sunflowers*
*Did I mention I hate sunflowers (under normal circumstances)? But the state flower of Kansas makes a perfect easy centerpiece for any Wiz of Oz bash.
Kid-friendly rainbow-themed food
There’s no place like home (ok, technically grandma’s house). Why grandma’s house for the party locale, you ask?
I couldn’t resist doing this to the play house in her yard.
Ding dong the witch is dead! And happy birthday party planning to all.

More of Me made it to Charleston Fashion Week. Front row, worn on the stunning mom-to-be and fashion week judge, Andrea Serrano.
Andrea is the costume buyer for the Lifetime TV series Army Wives. I met her when she was dressing the lovely Catherine Bell. She is also a stylist on ad campaigns for Maybelline and Nautica; stylist for Maxim, Stuff, and Blender magazines; stylist for celebrity clients such as Ludacris, The Rock, and Sienna Miller; former co-owner of B’zar, a Charleston streetwear boutique that was featured in Lucky, Time Out New York, and Travel & Leisure. We are honored that she chose so many of our looks.

Andrea again in MoM’s Momshell dress. This dress was featured in Fit Pregnancy:
Looking gorgeous. This dress was also featured in Fit Pregnancy magazine. Fashion editors and fashionable women clearly love these two styles as much as we do!
We are all sold out but bringing this maternity classic back for Fall 2011:
Andrea at center wearing the MoM Bib Dress that sold out on Gilt Groupe in a few hours. Love how she accessorizes it.
Other Charleston Fashion Week panelists included Alexis Maybank, Co-founder of Gilt Groupe, Anne Slowey, ELLE magazine fashion news director, and many other names in the fashion world like Derek Blasberg and Fern Mallis.
To my knowledge, the fabulous Liz Lange is the only maternity designer to have shown at New York (or any) Fashion Week. Time to change that?
