The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Happy December!

The holidays are often considered “the most wonderful time of the year”, and this month you’re likely to hear songs of the season such as White Christmas, among other holiday classics.

From all of us at The Huestudio + Company, Season’s Greetings from our family to yours!

…………..

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you “Be of good cheer”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow

There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistletoeing
And hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time
Yes, the most wonderful time
Oh, the most wonderful time
Of the year

Luscious Lavender

Inspiration is everywhere! Spectacularly blooming from June to August, we are inspired and in love with fragrant lavender fields in the Luberon, around the Mont-Ventoux and in the region of Sault.

Bright and bold hues of orchid, lilac, amethyst, purple [and The Flower Studio’s elegant lavender wands from Provence] came together to create a breathtaking showcase for a bridal shower styled photo shoot!

Designed and styled at The Flower Studio, a preferred floral partner of Huestudio + Company, elegant Tile Lilac linens from Over The Top, Inc. anchored exquisitely-curated tablescapes and were abundantly adorned with luscious floral creations by Karen Meeske-Cook and Jerry Lyons from The Flower Studio.

Pam Rose and her team of cake artisans at Swirlz Cupcakes created a spectacular bridal shower cake iced asymmetrically in lavender and ivory buttercream with 18K gold accents.

Pastel rose petals were placed lightly around the base to create an ethereal, elegant effect.

“Lavender is the soul of Provence”

– Jean Giono

Elegant lavender custom calligraphy menus by Paige Targosz of The Blank Paige perfectly accompanied fragrant lavender wands from Provence.

Miniature orchid, rose and hydrangea floral posies were created by The Flower Studio to complement watercolor and modern calligraphy menus by Audrey Ko of Things Unseen Designs.

“I love lavender – both the color and the smell. And the sound (be quiet so you can hear it).” 
– Jarod Kintz, Whenever You’re Gone, I’m Here For You

Showers of Blessings

We are honored to salute and support our cherished friends and preferred charitable partner, Operation Shower! 

The Huestudio + Company celebrates their amazing 10-year success to ease the stress of deployment by hosting joyful baby showers for military families across the country.

Operation Shower’s baby shower events provide expectant military families with high quality products for their babies while recognizing their extraordinary sacrifices and personal efforts for all that they do for our country.

These delightful events are a unique and special opportunity for military families to come together and celebrate! 

After all, the military moms who hold it all together at home deserve a party and special recognition.

In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, delight in learning more about Operation Shower!

  1. Operation Shower is in the business of JOY! 
  2. We are based in St. Louis, Missouri.
  3. We started as a passion project in the basement of LeAnn Morrissey’s home in 2007 and have now hosted over 100 military showers + honored over 5,000 military moms!
  4. We are a proud Homefront Group of The PGA TOUR’s Birdies for the Brave® + supported by PGA TOUR professionals Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan.
  5. We believe that love really is in the details. 
  6. We know that there isn’t a day that can’t be made better by giving back to others.
  7. We were incredibly honored to have former First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden reach out to host an event as a part of their Joining Forces initiative. *Bonus: We were invited again by Mrs. Obama’s office to host a shower in Italy with the First Lady while she was visiting a base in Vincenza! 
  8. Our signature item is our “Shower in a Box” which Operation Shower provides to every military mom-to-be so that they receive a full baby shower’s worth of gifts at their shower – packaged especially for them! 
  9. Our goal is to let every one of our military moms know that we see them, we appreciate them and we celebrate them!
  10. We may be biased, but we think we have the most talented and loving volunteers and supporters on the planet + feel so honored to work with many great designers…like the team at The Huestudio + Company!

To show your support of military families all over the country, please consider a sponsorship in the form of cash, products, service donations and corporate sponsorships.

Celebrate with some happy moms in this special video + learn more about Operation Shower and all the good it does!
