Shotgun Floral Studio Does Not Disappoint

There is nothing we love more than talented and creative vendors!

Last week we visited Shotgun Floral Studio to see a mock-up they had prepared for us for an upcoming ocean-themed party.


We had asked them to create arrangements playing off the theme of the Great Barrier Reef and the deep sea.

They nailed it with these colors and textures, everything from the vases to the materials in the arrangements. What they came up with could not be more spot on!

These floral arrangements are the perfect accents to bring our ocean theme from an idea to a reality! 

Stay tuned to see the final product...



A Home Designer's Fantasy

Working with a group consisting mostly of women forces me to look at things a bit differently. Some of our team, plus a good friend of mine, Samantha's son Justin Fatheree, recently went on a site inspection for an upcoming event in Carmel, CA. After a fabulous tour and a good night's sleep at the beautiful Carmel Valley Ranch, we headed back home. Along the way, we came across a hidden gem.

Tancredi & Morgen

is a family-owned business started 27 years ago and passed down to the children of the original owners. They sell everything a home designer could imagine – textiles, soaps, tabletop items, books, furniture, vintage bits and bobs, jewelry, and much more. 

Samantha and Danielle were in their own little linen heaven! 

They were running around the place like they were six-year-old girls on Christmas morning. 

Even for a young guy like myself, Tancredi & Morgen got me excited to own my own home and it definitely forced me to notice the finer decorative options out there and the difference they can make in a home or even at an event we plan.

Next time you are in the Carmel area, make sure you find your way to Tancredi & Morgen. The only thing you may regret is the money you'll spend on all of your wonderful finds!

Thanks for reading and have a nice week.


The Finest Ham in the World...ON WHEELS!

A couple of weeks ago we had the honor of having a


master-carving demo at our office. Chef Teddy Rebollo personally brought his hand-crafted cart and his out-of-this-world


for an experience like no other.

Teddy contacted our team a while back and we checked out his website and instantly saw what a beautiful job he was doing – from his carving station cart to his website. We couldn't let him get away without hearing more. Sure enough, we were not only able to


more about his company, but the best part was that we were able to


what he had been describing.

Teddy took us on his


experience by walking us through all of his steps. First, Teddy told us a little bit about himself and his background in Spanish


and why he chose to share his love for it. Next he showed us how he sets up his cart and how it was made.

After that, he taught us a little bit about what we were eating. "Most of the best chefs worldwide consider Jamón Ibérico de Bellota 'The Finest Ham in the World.' It is considered one of the four finest gourmet products along with caviar, truffles, and foie."

We learned how the


is raised, cured, treated, set up, carved, preserved, and most importantly – how it is eaten!

We poured a splash of white wine for each of us, toasted each other, then sampled the finest ham in the world. Everyone's jaws dropped with delicious surprise. Coming from someone whose favorite meat is prosciutto, this wasn't even in the same league! Welcome to the big leagues ladies and gentleman! Teddy also makes a fantastic, flavorful tomato spread which he put on Spanish baguettes – which are also killer with the



We are so excited to work with Teddy at our future events and we will be jealous of the client who we use him for!

Thank you, Teddy for the finest demo of the finest


in the world.

Enjoy your weekend everyone, and try some


if you get the opportunity!
