From Amber... As a Santa Barbara based Event Designer, I realized that I had never had the opportunity to sit down to a table that I had designed. Having an upcoming birthday, I decided to pull together an all star team of local vendors to treat my girlfriends to a decadent brunch, highlighting local food, drinks, and style.
I wanted my guests to feel pampered the moment they walked in, and gave each a chic floral corsage, Municipal Winemakes Sparkling Shiraz, and a Graperfuit Sage Cocktail. Seasons Catering put together a menu highlighting local farms and fresh seasonal ingredients – vibrant in taste and color.
We sat down to seasonal berry bowls with honey ricotta and homemade granola. We then brunched on a buffet of Grapefruite frisee salad, Dicken’s Bread toast with Pea Puree, frittata of mushrooms, leeks and goat cheese, asparagus with smoked salmon bundles, and rounded out by homemade muffins and scones with marmalade and whipped cream. The food was not only delicious but visually stunning.
For the overall design, I wanted to the space to feel fresh and modern with a balance of masculine and feminine details. I paired leather butterfly chairs with indigo mudcloth, geometrical print tablecloths with rich abundant pink tone florals. Copper, leather, and terra cotta elements rounded out the look.
My design would not have been complete without thanking my guests for their love and friendship. Thank you notes done in hand calligraphy were tucked in each napkin and individual place cards adorned each fork. The brunch was truly a celebration of love, friendship, and the city we call home!
