last week i posted this creative council video showing how to mix two delicious summer-inspired cocktails, and now i’m so excited to share with you where we got to drink them.
there are few things in life more enjoyable than spending time with good friends, indulging in food and libations over laughs and conversation. combine that with a perfect spring night outdoors and it’s hard to top. i was fortunate enough to work with some ridiculously talented friends of mine to make this event happen. i wish i could relive the evening, but luckily jessie webster and arian were on hand to capture all the fun.
(watch the video at the bottom to see the whole thing come together!)
michael antonia volunteered his awesome backyard for the occasion and outfitted it with a bunch of furniture from his company yeah! rentals that specializes in mid-century modern pieces for events. the dude’s got GREAT taste and would make any party look rad.
and of course, the master himself talmadge was on hand with pharmacie to mix us up some of the best cocktails i’ve ever tasted. he made 4 specialty drinks that evening (watch the video of our two faves here!)
the party was small & intimate. only about 20 people that travel a lot and don’t have a lot of time to socialize with each other enough. i had asia illustrate an invitation that i sent out to the guests in their email (keepin’ it simple around here)
she captured exactly what was in my head with these cocktail drawings!
the space was filled with decor from the geniuses at bash, please, playing on the theme of the four elements: water, fire, wind & earth. they handmade these custom hanging mobiles and helped me style the whole thing…i believe they are selling those mobiles, you should email them if you are interested in one for your home!
i chose a vintage bohemian style dress. the party was so laid back, and i wanted to be able to lounge around on the rugs and feel comfortable. it was a good choice!
yasmine floral design created these stunning arrangements for the tables. i love her wild aesthetic & eye for unique pairings and textures…so good, right? they sure make you appreciate the art of nature.
oh gosh, ricky’s fish tacos. i may or may not have eaten 6. if you live in the LA area you have to follow ricky’s twitter to see where he’ll be popping up next. he set up his fish fry table of magic and we all went to town.
all the beautiful glasses for the cocktails were by casa de perrin, who rents gorgeous table settings and flatware (and those sweet rugs, too!) i love how they mixed in some of their black forks with the gold ones. a nice twist…
they have a new online shop where you can buy some of their treasures. they also provided those adorable brass vases for the florals.
the bash, please girls thought it would look cool to use terracotta bases as the plates for our fish tacos. put a piece of parchment paper on top and you’re good to go. festive, right?
a special thanks to all my dear friends who helped me bring this party to life. watch this video that arian made to see the setup of the party…taco eating…rug sitting…friends…drinks and more drinks…
