Dinner Party on the Beach

It’s not often I get to share a party that I was not only lucky enough to style, but also lucky enough to attend! So naturally, I’m especially excited to share today’s dinner party on the beach. The celebration? My lovely friend Jenna of That Wife‘s 30th birthday! The setting? One of the most picturesque places in the Bay Area, the Carmel City Beach. We set out to create a celebration with florals that complemented the natural seaside landscape, a healthy dose of metallics, and a bit of a Middle Eastern flair. We had such fun choosing flowers from the wholesale market and arranging them in a mismatched vessels that we collected from Home Goods and local thrift stores. Gorgeous pale green and copper chargers, rose gold flatware, and Moscow mule mugs set the table, which was completed with wooden bench seating, all from Classic Party Rentals. Sand-colored linens and a patterned runner from Napa Valley Linens echoed the beach setting. Pretty pops of Jenna’s favorite color, kelly green, were peppered throughout, including on the gorgeous calligraphy place cards from JM Paper & Ink and serving trays from Anthropologie. We all had the best time getting glammed up by Dolce Vita Beauty and putting on our pretty frocks for a fabulous party, which concluded with blankets and a bonfire on the beach. It’s so wonderful to relive these wonderful memories in the beautiful images from Majesta Patterson!
