Believe it or not Champagne + Linen does more than just weddings. We also enjoy planning any kind of event imaginable (because every moment is worth celebrating, right?). We also have a soft spot for children as well… So when Missoula’s super adorable baby boutique, La Stella Blu, asked if we were interested in helping with their Sunday Streets Missoula festivities we were into it.
Sunday Streets Missoula is a super rad kid’s fair put on by Missoula in Motion
‘’Sunday Streets Missoula celebrates Missoula as a bikeable and walkable community. By temporarily closing one of our greatest public spaces, the streets, Sunday Streets Missoula encourages all ages and all abilities to be active, support local businesses, and rethink how our community can be more livable.”
The gals of C+L came up with Club Blu [Get it? Because of La Stella Blu?!]. Ahem, anyways, we wanted activites that was fun for the whole family. We immediately called our friends at RMF Entertainment because every club needs an awesome DJ to bump some tunes. Later we enjoyed some live music by Toni Nicole Music on her ukulele.
To make the party extra awesome, we invited some buggy friends from the Missoula Insectarium. The Insectarium brought a scorpion, several breeds of Mantis’, and some roaches, which weren’t as terrifying as we imagined them to be.
Ariel’s dear mother, The Montana Bird Lady, also showed up with the very adorable Tink the Saw-Whet Owl! Tink is only three freakin inches tall, and as adorable as they come.
Sticking with the buggy critter theme, we came up with some fun insect crafts and coloring pages to do with the kiddos. Too many bug headbands to count were made (which we helped each kiddo make by hand!). Alicia’s extremely talented friend, Cassie, did face painting for the WHOLE four hours we were there, painting Ladybugs, Praying Mantis’, butterflies, and snails on kids faces (seriously so good). We loaded up on sidewalk chalk and bubbles. While Hop Skotch wasn’t so popular, kids went cray cray with the chalk cause they were literally drawing in the middle of one of the busiest streets in town in the middle of the day. Best day ever, duh. What more does a kid need really?
We had so much fun on this beautiful Missoula fall day! We met so many new friends, learned some things about insects (did you know there are scorpions who are native to Montana?! We have mixed emotions about that...), hung out with Tink the tiny, adorable owl, and blew some bubbles! So many bubbles. We cannot wait to do it again next year! A huge thank you to all the people who made Club Blu extra amazing today!
All our love,
Alicia, Ariel & Mariah

Call me vain but I love my birthday. Some of my fondest memories (or at least what I can remember/what people have told me the next morning over hungover brunch) are from past birthday adventures shared with the people I love most.
The girls of C+L love a lot of things. We love trashy TV, cheap wine, our dogs, and chicken wings. Most importantly: we love brunch. Everything about it. The ooey gooey egg yolk. Warm fluffy biscuits. Sweet syrup. And the mimosas. Boy do we love mimosas.
We all get caught up in the holiday festivities. Between the travel, family get-togethers, and all the shopping it is easy to lose track of time. We all have good intentions and truly want to plan ahead, but sometimes life gets in the way.
C+L wanted to throw a NYE bash that required minimal preparation, but maximum fun! Here are our tips on how to throw a last minute NYE bash:
