Alas, No Sea Glass!

A Beachy Vignette

A hike we took on our recent trip to Sausalito led us on us a long and winding path to a hidden cove and a beach with views of the Golden Gate Bridge – a perfect place to collect sea glass.  Sadly, recycling, though good for the environment, has led to a dearth of these pretty weathered gems so we’ll have to get our fix in other ways.  Perhaps you’ll find us showing up at your next party wearing this delightful dress

our toes painted in this hot hue

and feeling glamorous in these sexy specs.

Our mother taught us that no good guest shows up empty-handed so we’d definitely be bringing you this beautiful bowl – perhaps filled with cherries!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend of beach combing and sun!

Pink + Orange = One Perfect Party

While trying to come up with a theme for a summer birthday bash, we keep coming back to this gorgeous table we saw at Spring Awakening last month inspired by the Broadway show, Flower Drum Song.
