An Evening of Recognition

Yesterday we headed to sunny Southern Cali for an awards dinner. Having grown up in Orange County, it was fun to be in my own backyard at Fashion Island’s Fig and Olive Restaurant in Newport Beach!


After a week of rain, this event marked the return of sunny days – getting me (and probably many others) excited for summer beach days. If only I had a tan . . .


Anyway, we held the event in the wine room, which was wonderful. Clean, bright, and filled floor-to-ceiling with wine – can you say heaven?


We added some elegance by pairing white with cool grey menus and floral arrangements that incorporated different textures with a pop of pastel orange. Oh, and don’t forget the clear glass box candles! We also added a sweet touch from Woodhouse Chocolates.

It was all smiles all around – literally. They had such a great team at the restaurant supporting us. From waiters Carly and Adam to Chef Mark. 


Can’t wait to return!
