I got the idea for this Butterfly Garden bridal shower theme from my good friend and sis’s, Think Poppy, bridal shower. The decor was so stunning that I decided to re-interpret the look for bridesmaids who are inspired to re-create their own butterfly gardens for their lovely brides.

Sade Oyinade of Yemi’s Dilemma
When a fellow African blogger, Clarissa of This Afropolitan Life, asked me whether she could re-post this post on her blog, I was started my happy dance. #bloggoals. What I didn’t anticipate was getting a like and a follow on Twitter (you can follow me too!) by an über talented Nigerian-American television producer and director. After studying her page, researching every link and wondering why I haven’t come across her before, I knew I wanted to pick her brain about the TV & Film industry and being Nigerian-American.
Sade Oyinade is the co-executive producer of the TV One series Unsung & Unsung Hollywood. Drawing from the knowledge of TV production, Sade started an independent film production company, Flower Ave. Films. In her debut film, Who Do You Know?, she exposes the misconceptions of how to contact HIV/AIDS. For her current film, Yemi’s Dilemma, Sade taps into her cultural background to address sensitive issues like inter-cultural marriage and family loyalty. She and producing partner Deshawn Plair, are currently raising funds through Indiegogo to produce the film, which will feature actress Sheryl Lee Ralph and Akbar Gbajabiamila.
Father’s Day is quickly approaching and I haven’t gotten my dad a thing yet. Well, at least I have his card, so half of his gift was planned in advance. But it’s not too late. In times like these, busy times when I forget a holiday is coming, I rely on my trustworthy Amazon Prime membership to quickly receive items. Here are five gift ideas I admire on Amazon. I love you dad!

Please, please, please pardon my absence. I didn’t intend to be away from the blog for over two weeks. I recently traveled to Nigeria for Lola of Think Poppy’s wedding and life got the best of my intentions to plan ahead and create posts before I left. As you can see, that didn’t happen. Now that I’m back and eager to connect with you guys, I’m working on content to post. There is a Gidi Girlboss interview coming your way, wanderlust posts on Nigeria and more bridal shower tablescapes.
