We kick off November with a Friendsgiving shoot that we did with some of our vendor friends. We all came together to show you how easy hosting a dinner party can be. Our setup included food, dessert, table settings, flowers, decor, lounge seating, fall fashion and a photo booth. All while enjoying the ambience of our venue, located in one of the city's most popular areas, Pacific Beach. No more talking...let's get to these photos!
Cheers to being thankful for friends like these.
For this dinner party we wanted to use trending colors with a fresh menu idea. Our color palette included teal, burnt orange, cranberry, gold and rose gold. The menu was created by Chef Summer, who did a non-traditional take on thanksgiving dinner. We went more Mediterranean style with citrus, spice and fragrant dishes. Our friends Raquel + Harry from SD Charcuterie/Shenco Catering Co made a charcuterie board that was out of this world, featuring fall fruits, meats and cheeses. The sweets came from the lovely Anna of Ámame Desserts, who made apple pie crisp + chocolate chunk parfaits, paired with home made truffles. So, so good!
The dinner location was Yard + Sea which is located in the heart of Pacific Beach. This is a very popular spot in San Diego - close to the beach and on the famous Garnet Ave. The lounge was put together by Rachel from Toto + Tess. She had beautiful pieces that complimented the color palette, even adding some velvet accents for a luxe look. What's fall without some updated fashions?

Soirée coordinated + planned this event. In addition we featured: tableware from our Friendsgiving collection, hanging decor, photo booth and custom menu's. The rose gold name cards were created by Rachel from Toto + Tess. Personalized items are a great addition to any party, it makes guests feel extra special. Gorgeous flower arrangements were created by Posies Floral Co.
That's all folks! Wishing you all a month of blessings + thanks.
