20th Street Cottage Interior Design – Fairy Godmother Friday

Exciting things have been happening at the 20th Street Cottage, here in Downtown Bakersfield!

After having the 20th Street Cottage Community Room redesigned by the one and only Jamie Urner of Jamie Urner Interior Designs, we realized that a much needed project had landed upon our fairy wings… The cottage needed a complete facelift!! 

Jamie Urner is no stranger to the Fairy Godmother family, after Fairy Godmother Colleen produced her sister’s wedding. 

When it came time to do some revamping at the cottage, we knew just who to call. 

Once the redesign of the Community Room had concluded, we had an itch we just couldn’t scratch… We quickly had Jamie dive into design options for the hallway and kitchen.  

Cinderella’s glass slipper and fairy blue accents added subtle hints to the kitchen, and you know that we are all about the details!

We were completely thrilled with the outcome!  

We wanted a feel that combined our love of our namesake Cinderella, the class of brides before us like Jackie O., Lucille Ball and Grace Kelly, and then added finishing touches from the modern era. Jamie took all of this and created her own magic at the 20th Street Cottage!

When it came time to redesign our office, we let Jamie take the reigns. Taking productivity and elegance to create a functional workspace that would double as an elegant setting when the Fairies aren’t hard at work.   

Jamie absolutely nailed it! Adding in light touches of our beloved “fairy blue” bringing our brand to life in our office, mirrored shelving to showcase our great works, and a new table giving us the chance to gather around the table… literally!

A complete facelift wouldn’t be complete without every room… All that we had left was the loo! 

Jamie added some fur, vintage mirrors and new lighting to bring the room to its full potential!

20th Street Cottage Christmas Open House – Magical Monday


To kick off December, the Fairy Godmother family celebrated at the 20th Street Cottage Christmas Open House!

Invitation designed by Matinae Design Studio.

This Open House was unlike anything that the cottage has previously hosted…

The introduction of a new roommate, the unveiling of a newly designed space, and delicious treats and warm cider called for one thing, a Christmas Open House!

The 20th Street Cottage is near and dear to the heart of Fairy Godmother. From the ground up, we have been at the cottage, meeting clients and friends in our office, brewing hot coffee in its kitchen, and celebrating in the yard… but after a few short years, it was time for some change at the 20th Street Cottage.

Coleen reached out to Jamie Urner of Jamie Urner Interior Design Studio, and she was to our rescue! Starting with just our front room and kitchen, Jamie gave life to a dream we didn’t even know we had.

Marvelous color palettes and gorgeous chandeliers were just the start of the 20th Street Cottage‘s makeover. Window coverings, new furniture pieces and artwork completed the look.

Magdalena of Magdalena Portraits debuted her new office as guests made their way through the cottage. Mingling and jingling was just some of the fun!

As if heaters weren’t enough to give you that warm and cozy backyard feel, the 20th Street Cottage now has it’s very own Italian lighting covering the event space!

What could be better than indulging in some warm cider and gingerbread cookies to kick off the Holiday season?!

How about a surprise chorus flashmob?!

Yep, you read that right!

The Bakersfield Blend Chorus, a chapter of the Sweet Adelines International, surprised guests by breaking out into song while mixed into the crowd. One by one, the chorus joined together before guests and sang only the most beautiful Christmas carols!

 Fairy Godmother is proud to have called the 20th Street Cottage home, and even more proud now that it has been re-designed making it even more full of love and happiness!

Fairy Godmother Open House – Magical Monday

In honor of the upcoming 20th Street Cottage Christmas Open House, we are dedicating this “Magical Monday” to all of our previous events!

Our “fairy” first Open House that Fairy Godmother ever held was at our Truxtun Avenue office back in 2013!

This event was held to thank all of our clients, friends, and team for their hard work and dedication to the creation of Fairy Godmother! One of the ways that Fairy Godmother found to give back to the community that helped build our company that we love so much!

We know that our friends and clients love food just as much as we do!

Fairy guests indulged in sweet bites and treats from De Coeur Bake Shop and Cassandra’s Sweet Treats! Fun and festive names were given for the occasion, and could they be any more perfect?!

Don’t forget the fairy dust!

To make the very first Fairy Godmother Open House even more special, there was a special announcement to be made…

What lies beneath…???

This Open House is where the Fairy Godmother Foundation made it’s debut!

While the Open House was one way that Colleen and Fairy Godmother found to give back to the community that built the business, the Fairy Godmother Foundation was even more so!

The Fairy Godmother Foundation donates one wedding to a deserving couple in need. The couple must be facing life altering circumstances that have caused them to otherwise put their wedding day on hold.

Fairy Godmother Foundation

The Fairy Godmother Foundation was born!

After the Fairy Godmother team outgrew their quaint little office on Truxtun, it was time for a move.

Where could we share our fun ideas and quirks with our clients that would still have that same “home sweet home” feel?

Just like magic, Colleen just so happen to drive by a little corner house that needed a little love.

And, you guessed it, some fairy dust!

Board by board and brush by brush, the little house had transformed into something greater than the original curb appeal… The 20th Street Cottage was born!

Setting up for a Fairy Godmother event is no simple task, but we always manage to have a great time!

Of course, there is always time for a photo to capture the moment!

While we love throwing parties and events, we absolutely LOVE when we are able to entertain our friends, family members and fellow “friendors” and their guests!

We love our silly “friendors!”

And of course we would never want our guests to leave empty handed!

The Fairy Godmother team is always thinking of new ideas that are as unique as the event, so when it came time to get the gift bags ready we knew just what to do!

Sprinkles, everywhere!

Our most recent open house was our Fairy Godmother “Cookies & Cider” social!

Our very own Fairy Godmother Cassandra craved something unique for this event, she had dreams of a Christmas tree, but wanted to keep true to the Fairy Godmother brand.

Cassandra’s creative freedom ran free, and she knew just what to do!

Cassandra dressed up our dress form in the perfect Christmas attire, pine branches, a red sash and completed the outfit with Fairy Godmother pearls!

The Fairy Godmother squad loves to celebrate the many friendships that we create through the year, and is there any better way to celebrate than by gathering with friends?!

To celebrate the new interior design of the 20th Street Cottage by Jamie Urner, we would love for you to stop by this year’s Christmas Open House!

There will be sweet treats by Courtney of GhilaDolci Bakery, and we are so thrilled for you to meet our new creative partner at the 20th Street Cottage, Magdalena Cruz!
