New Happenings

 The Seahawks are going to the Superbowl, and Valentine’s day is nearing, and I have yet to post about either topic. This is because I’ve been incredibly busy in life, and with PLD lately. Right now I’m working on launching new products for the shop, as well as planning and prepping for a few upcoming events happening in the next few months. The first is a sponsorship for a West Elm Event in Orlando hosted by Sarah the DIY and Lifestyle Blogger from Sarahhearts. The event happening February 6th is called Meet+Makewhere guests will enjoy a fun evening, creating Valentine’s themed artwork and crafts.

Here’s a look at the product my company will be supplying for each of the attendee’s swag bags.

Bride’s Night Out – Recap

Back in September I had the pleasure of working with Dana Muchow from Spokane Bridal Blog for Bride’s Night Out Spokane, an event featuring top wedding vendors, loads of inspiration, products, designs and an evening of fun for many brides to be!

The Spokane Bridal Blog Marketplace showcase was setup within the event, which was coordinated by Alisa Lewis Event Designs and Attic Rentals, and intricately styled to capture the essence of a Parisian sidewalk market with a mix of vintage decor, furniture and products. Posh Little Designs was amongst many of the vendors who sold products within the showcase.

A variety of my cookie cutter sets, paper straws, baking cups and cupcake toppers were available for purchase, which you can see more of in the lovely images below.

Annual Mammogram Party

Last Friday was the 10th Annual Mammogram Party for a local radiology center, Mt. Baker Imaging. This is an event that they put on every year to raise awareness about breast cancer while also reminding women 40 and over to get their annual mammogram.

This year, I was invited to be among the many fabulous vendors at the party, which was broadcasted live by one of our local radio stations.  The turnout was great! Several women came in to complete their mammograms, and those who did were given free goodie bags and pink flowers. It was truly an honor to be involved! I honestly had the best time designing and styling my display and adding many of my favorite DIY touches for the signature posh feel. This is the first time that I’ve set up as a vendor for a local event, so seeing everything come together was like a dream come true!

Because the focus was on breast health, for breast cancer awareness month, I setup my space using pink related baking and party supplies from my online shop. I had everything from paper straws and cookie cutters to chocolate molds, signature sprinkle mix, charms, baking cups and more, available for sale. All of these items matched my color scheme of pink, silver and white and of course followed the pink ribbon theme.

I used a basic white shelving unit turned sideways to house the majority of my products, with silver trays, apothecary jars, vases and cake stands to hold the rest. I accented with handmade glittered pegs like the ones from my Glitter Clothespins post, and decorated with my Paint and Glitter pumpkins from this post. The finishing touch was the fabulous company sign made by a local printing center.

Cookies for the cure -  BCA Event - Chickabug free prints

When I came across the series of free Breast Cancer Awareness prints from ChickabugI couldn’t have been more excited! Heather’s designs are so gorgeous and this specific set fit in perfectly with my display.

If you’re planning a Breast Cancer Awareness themed fundraiser or event, these prints are a must use. She literally thought of everything with these printouts. They come with paper straw flags and banners, donation signs, folding cards, thank you’s, chocolate bar wrappers and hershey kiss tags, circle tags and much much more.

As you can see, there was much effort and time that went in to this event. Fortunately for me, I had one of my closest friends there to assist with what turned out to be a very successful day! She helped me prep, set up and decorate the awareness ribbon and bra sugar cookies that we gave away for donation. The cookies were a big hit as was the bra cookie cutter, which happens to be one of my best sellers in the online shop.

 I’ll be combining a portion of all proceeds made from the event, along with all proceeds made in my online shop during breast cancer awareness month, to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Visit my shop to check out many of the products seen here. I’ll be adding the remaining items in the coming days!

Think Pink

Fall is officially upon us and I have all things pink on the brain. Not only because it’s a rather trendy color for the season but also because the color pink is the designated hue for Breast Cancer Awareness, and October just happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organizations from all across the US will be participating in the fight against breast cancer by going pink and I’m honored to be participating as well!

This year, I’ve been invited to be one of the vendors at a local Mammogram Party in my hometown. The event will offer mammograms by donation to women without a prior appointment, while also raising awareness about the disease, and helping in the fight for a cure.

I’ll be putting together a display of breast cancer awareness baking and party supplies for sale locally and also in limited quantities in my Etsy shop for the month of October. Not only can we bake for a cure, but we can also celebrate the strength and courage of all women and families affected, while also supporting a great cause.

With the event just a few weeks away, and breast cancer awareness such a huge part the coming month, I’ve put together a board that I can draw from to style and design my vendor space. I hope to also provide inspiration to everyone affected by the disease.

Think Pink! - Breast Cancer Awareness Inspiration by PLD

For the vendor event, I’ll be working with a color scheme of pink and gold/silver. The setup will be all white and clean with a few small floral arrangements and pops of pink in a variety of shades. I’ll be carrying everything from cookie cutters, to paper straws, baking cups, sprinkles and more. As I work on projects for the event, I’ll be sure to share them here, so you can see how it all comes together!

Visit my Etsy shop for a look at the Breast Cancer Awareness Products currently in Stock. I’ll have more to sell in the coming weeks!

A portion of all proceeds from breast cancer related products sold by Posh Little Designs will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Sugar Cookie-gram

My daughter’s 3rd Birthday is only 6 days away and since I’ll be busy prepping the entire week, I’ll be photographing via Instagram and blog posting from my iPhone. Loving technology these days!

As you may already know, the theme for her party is Cinderella and one of the items on our dessert menu among many others is sugar cookies. I always try to do as much as I can in advance so I made these cookies last night and plan to freeze and get them decorated by the weekend.


Glass slipper, ball gown and princess tiara shapes will tie in perfectly!

Check back soon for more!

Posh Gifts ~ Onesie Cupcakes – Etsy

I’m currently in my last week of pregnancy and trying to stay busy while waiting patiently for my sweet baby girl to arrive.

St. Patty’s Pretzel Rods

Chocolate and pretzels equal a heavenly combination of sweet and salty. I am a sucker for both so I combined the two not only for a bit of pregnancy craving relief, but also with St. Patty’s Day day in mind. These chocolate dipped pretzels are in the ‘mini’ version if you will. I made them in minis because I adore anything pint sized, perhaps because they give the illusion of less guilt? Regardless of the reason, they are a perfect treat or favor for your next St. Patrick’s Day Fete, or any occasion for that matter.

To make them all posh and festive, I used a few drops of green liquid food coloring and then decorated them with my sprinkle mix. So simple to make, and adorable too. If you have little ones they will just love to help you make and eat them as well.

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Patty’s Pretzel Rods


1 Bag Rold Gold Pretzel Rods.

1  box Baker’s Premium White Chocolate Squares.

Green Food Coloring.

Parchment Paper.



Line Cookie Sheet in parchment paper and set aside.

Heat white chocolate in double boiler or in microwave for 30 second intervals until melted.

Divide melted chocolate into two bowls, adding the food coloring to one of them until the desired color is achieved (I used two drops in mine.)

Dip pretzels in both green and white chocolate, then decorate.

Place decorated pretzels onto parchment paper and allow to harden in the fridge for at least an hour.


Sunshine Yellow & Gray ~ Baby Shower Inspiration

The due date of my 2nd daughter is fast approaching and I have many projects to accomplish before her May 2nd arrival. A few of my largest tasks consist of designing her nursery and creating items for my upcoming baby shower. Although I am not planning the baby shower in it’s entirety on my own, I tend to be a bit of a control freak so I have more of a hand in the planning process than I probably should. Call me crazy but preggers or not, I absolutely love being involved. I always find an excuse to throw a party so there was no way that I’d be staying out of this one. I must however mention how fortunate I am to have a few special people in my life who will be helping plan and are also willing to put up with me and my obsessive demands for perfection.

The color scheme we decided on for the baby’s nursery is yellow and gray. I drew my inspiration for these colors from the Season of Spring that my daughter will be born in. There is something so bright, cheery and joyous about yellow that warms me like a sunny afternoon. The gray adds in a modern twist, and together they offer the touch of posh that I live for.

I fell in love with the combination of yellow and gray so much so, that I’ve decided to use that color scheme for my baby shower as well. I will be pairing these hues with some of my favorite textiles, decor and delicious treats, which together will embody my vision for a Vintage-Chic celebration with modern and posh touches. I currently live for gated trellis prints & ornate chalkboards. Lanterns, paper straws, mason jars & milk glass will add in the vintage touch I am looking for and the french macarons, and other sweet treats are favorites of mine that would look beautiful on any dessert table.

I couldn’t be more excited about these colors and just love how versatile they are together. Yellow and gray can be both masculine and feminine and would look stunning in a wedding, home interiors, fashions or as the backdrop for any cheerful celebration.

Elegantly wed in British Columbia

I recently had the the honor of preparing floral arrangements and table decor for a beautiful wedding that took place in British Columbia. My objective: to create designs with posh and lavish appeal on a modest budget. This is always a favorite task of mine. Fresh flowers play such an important role in any wedding or celebration and I believe that even with a modest budget, the simplest of arrangements can add a special element to any event.

All of the designs for this wedding were inspired by the bride’s vision of elegance and romance, along with her color scheme of tiffany blue, violet and white. Here are a few of the techniques that allowed me to create the posh floral arrangements and centerpieces, which are further reflected in the beautiful imagery below.

All florals were DIY.

I ordered them through a local wholesale grocer as well as online for overall better pricing.

I chose in season blooms that wouldn’t need to be shipped from out of the Country.

Vases were borrowed and purchased at discounted stores.

The bride opted for simple and less intricate floral designs as well as large blooms such as hydrangea, that didn’t require a lot of reworking.

Using hydrangeas allowed me the ability to create simple and modern bouquets with only a few stems per bouquet, thus allowing more flowers available for the remaining arrangements.

Lastly,  I mixed and matched the reception decor, using a variety of flower arrangements in different sizes on half of the guest tables, while using candle centerpieces on the others.

Ceremony florals were simple and chic in a mix of all white hydrangeas and roses.

I used all white roses for the bride’s dome shaped bouquet, adding in some diamond accents for a touch of posh glam.

The bride’s bouquet stems were wrapped in tiffany blue satin ribbon, adorned with pearl studded pins and an image of her late Father.

Bridesmaids carried simple yet elegant bouquets of white hydrangea with touches of violet statice. Stems were wrapped in violet satin ribbon.

Another shot of the gorgeous bridal bouquets made of white roses, white hydreangea and violet statice. I removed all greenery and leaves to add a modern touch and my signature style to all floral arrangements.

The groom’s boutonniere was made of a single stem white rose, white snapdragons and a sprig of violet statice, adorned with a chrome wire wrap for the final touch.

Groomsmen’s boutonnieres were created using white hydrangea, white snapdragons and a sprig of violet statice, wrapped in black floral adhesive.

Candle centerpieces were hand detailed with diamond studs and violet ribbon with diamond buckle detail. Diamond cut table scatter finished off the look.

Elegant white roses and hydrangeas made for gorgeous mix and match centerpieces.

Billowy white hydrangea, white rose, violet statice and snapdragon centerpieces helped set the tone for the evening, which couldn’t have been more beautiful or elegant for that matter.

You may have noticed that my obsession with hot cocoa continues and with the cold weather outside and Valentine’s day fast approaching I have the perfect excuse to make another one.
