In keeping with the spirit of yesterday’s post, I’m always on the hunt for fun and interesting venues to host events. My friends recently held their engagement party at Bluxome Street Winery in San Francisco. A winery/ tasting room in the heart of the city? Yes, please. There’s a cozy bar and tasting room near the entrance which is perfect for mingling during cocktail hour. And the masonry warehouse with its high bays, stainless steel tanks and stacks of oak barrels lends itself to a beautiful dining venue.
The couple lives in San Francisco but were getting hitched on the East Coast so they chose the perfect venue to showcase the bride’s roots. They worked with the boutique catering company, Jessica Lasky Fine Catering who specializes in local, seasonal, California cooking with an accent towards the Mediterranean. For an extra charge, they will even coordinate your entire event. The food was delicious!
From the bride-to-be on the florals:
The key to creative florals is to mix color, texture, and movement. Third generation San Francisco florist, Natalie Bowen and her amazing team know how to create modern and innovative floral designs through unique combinations. For my engagement party, Natalie integrated billy balls and kumquats into the flower arrangements for a colorful and fun play of color and texture. A single billy ball was placed on top of b-spired custom Kraft paper menu cards for a pop of yellow.
