Dreaming of sunshine & sofas


This year has been so busy that today we are daydreaming up our idea of a perfect weekend... Cozy coral pink sweaters with reading glasses for lots of good books curled up on a fabulous mustard damask sofa. Indulging in homemade buttery lemon cakes and sipping on crisp cocktails at the park on a chevron picnic blankets.

The canvas colors of corals, soft pinks and shades of yellow are the perfect glorious summer shades. They evoke feelings of pineapples, happy carnations, and sophistication. Mixed together they feel like Summer popsicles.

Part II: Modern wine country dinner


Yesterday we posted about Modern/Rustic Winery Dinner we did in the beautiful wine country of Los Olivos, Ca. To see how we infused a contemporary vibe into an otherwise rustic setting see our Part I post. Petros at Fess Parker did an impeccable job preparing the feast.

A variety of vases were propped upon overturned crates that served as risers and easy access to the food once it was served as well.

The food was served family style for everyone to enjoy a large variety..

There was taste for every meat eater and vegetarian palate.

As the sun begins to set, the dessert is served.

There were lots of small bites so guests could sample from lots of delectable desserts
