Garden Party GatheringRead More
You can now find my work in Harper's Bazaar! Eek!
I was so honored to be featured on Camille Styles and show off a recent bohemian themed dinner party I had hosted for an intimate gathering of 15 of my closest friends in the comfort of my backyard. From dahlias to designs, I hope you enjoy the intricate details of this special dining experience.
#BackyardGoals came to life! The low dining tables were an eclectic mix of fabrics, textures, vintage pieces, French plates, and more alongside white fur covered cushions as the seats.
Each invitation was unique. Letterpressed rose gold foil in 220# Lettra were printed and then stained with an Argentinian Malbec. The stains tied in with the fare, flowers, and decor, and added a nice touch to the overall casual vibe of the dinner.
From the menu to the place settings, warm coppers, bronzes, and autumn colors were the theme to the color scheme. A Fare Extraordinaire catered the dinner and helped me pull of the intimate family-style dining experience.
A perfectly paired earthy and bohemian set up. A little background on these glasses, they were actually my grandparents' glasses from their Puerto Rican wedding nearly 63 years ago. I loved bringing in this element to the party as a piece of my family history.
Handcrafted signs were created for each display of food. Small bites before the main course included gloucester, port wine derby, triple cream brie, crudité selections and homemade red pepper hummus. In-between small tastings, guests sipped on my signature drink of blood orange margaritas.
A big thank you to A Fare Extraordinaire, Maxit Flower Designs, and Ashleigh Amoroso Photography for helping me make my creative dreams come true. This dinner was so special to me because I was able to host my dearest and closest friends, but what made it even more special is to have my work featured in this article. Thank you Camille Styles for letting me share with you and your readers a little snippet of my story.
