Here are some of my favorite local Central Coast vendors..
This is such a classic palette! The colors seem chic and oh-so fresh when its presented in pale tones. It’s like a warm summer day, with fresh cream colored laundry being hung out to dry with a touch of yellow sunshine! Timeless and inviting! Happy Tuesday!
There is always something amazingly romantic about Europe. Maybe it’s because of my colonial perspective, but cobblestone streets, vespa’s and french corner cafes are endlessly chic. Rolling Tuscany hills, rambling château’s, endless gelato shops. and real, buttery croissants seem a lot cooler than large cookie cutter malls and acres of American parking lots.

One of the hottest trend of the season is mini appetizers and mini dessert buffets. Lot of old time comfort foods are extremely popular. I love this chic presentation of our childhood favorite of grilled cheese and tomato soup above!
Comfort food has gone gourmet. Like these mini all angus burgers with artisan condiments below. Plus everyone can sample a little bit of something with a dessert station. Popular mini desserts include shots of peach & apple cobbler, bite size cookies and shots of milk, mini homemade milkshakes and petite strawberry shortcakes!
Where do guests spend most of their time at weddings? Sitting at their table looking at the centerpieces/ tablescapes. Table decor has now become an art form, here are a few of my favorites. Think about colors, texture and height, aka so as guests can see people across the table from them.
Nothing says summer, like fresh squeezed lemonade. This vintage, carefree theme is perfect for an outdoor event. Add yellow roses, if you can it to feel more formal, or add orchids or pineapple slices to feel tropical. Lemonade is like liquid sunshine. This time of year it’s so nice to be outside all day long. Some of the sweetest things in life are the most simple of pleasures. Happy Monday!
