Christmas Tea 2011

It has been a tradition for many years to gather a few friends around the table for afternoon Christmas Tea, and this year wasn't any different.  It is a time to reflect, share our hearts together as busy women, relax and enjoy each other's company.  We laugh, cry, eat, drink champagne, and enjoy a few hours of refreshment together.   Preparing the tea, sandwiches, scones, cookies as well as setting the table has made such fond memories for Kaitlin and I.  This year we had fun finding all the flowers and putting the centerpiece together,  buying the ornaments, glassware and designing the table with the eggplant lamour linen and napkin from Creative Coverings , and the pretty topper by La Tavola called Paloma in Platinum.

 It is a special time to say thank you to a few friends that we work so closely with.  
It has become the highlight of the Christmas Season for us both.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Healthy and Happy New Year!  
See you in 2012~
Colette & Kaitlin

Sneak Peak- Intimate Romance at the San Ysidro Ranch

We wanted to share our table top design from an elaborate yet small & intimate wedding at the San Ysidro Ranch. This enchanting wedding reception took place inside the wine cellar, and the ceremony was held right outside in the garden in front of the fireplace. We designed chocolate menus for each of the 32 guests, as well as custom lace toppers for each of the 3 tables. We can't wait to share more images from this magical day!

We are so thankful to be supported by one of our local magazines who has chosen to feature us again in their wedding section called "Montecito Matrimony." There are some gorgeous events in the magazine and  if you live here in town please make sure you grab a copy off the stands!
Here is a sneak peak of the Michelle and Michael's wedding that took place in the gardens at the historic San Ysidro Ranch. One of the most stunning and romantic places in Santa Barbara!
