G Wine Cellars

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

We threw a party Saturday night for Garrett from G Wine Cellars.  We meet Garrett last October in Napa at his winery and my husband has kept in touch with him.  He called and asked if we would host a party here in the desert where he could serve his fantastic wine.  Of Course!  We are always up for a great party! He and his girlfriend flew down from Napa with their delicious wine.  We had 10 couples for a sit down dinner where he served 3 cases wine.  The weather was gorgeous.  We even busted out glow in the dark bocce ball. I am pretty sure that everyone had fun because our last guests left at about 2:30 am....to say the least I was exhausted but it was worth it.

I was totally into my table decorations.  I wanted to do a spring/nature/seashell combo and I think I pulled it off pretty well.  Potterybarn always has great ideas for table decorations.  I bought sea glass, reindeer moss and drift wood from them. I used tons of candles and votives because I think at night you can never have too much candle light.  I had the lanterns, seashells and scatter crystals (which add a lot when the light from the candles hit them.)  I have collected pretty jars, bottles over the years and I filled them with the crystals or with the moss and candles.  I bought white flowers because I didn't want colorful flowers to overwhelm the tables.  I used twine and white card stock paper for wine glass markers which also double as seating cards and put peoples names on them in pencil.  I even hung white Chinese lanterns in the ceiling over the tables outside. Everything  I used had a nature feeling to it.

 Morning After...Lots of clean up ;) but well worth it!

Holy Moly!!!  I have been M.I.A.  We have been so busy around here I have hardly had time to think.  We have been out of town, Lily had spring break, my parents were here for 10 days, I threw our annual Easter Egg Hunt for 80 plus people, had a sit down dinner party for 10 couples and have been managing the two babes and my sweet man on top of it all.

So I have A LOT to get caught up on around here at LLB.   Misha Lulu Spring 2010 arrived while all this was going on and I haven't even had a chance to add it to the website..but I'm back...well at least for a couple of days bc we have a wedding this weekend ;)

So here's a glimps of the last couple of weeks...Sometimes a photo says 1000's words right !?!?!
