Our meeting last month was held at the beautiful gardens of Villa de Flores in Rancho Santa Fe.  Guests were greeted at the registration table with heel protectors provided by Heels Above… such a great favor idea for outdoor events!  During the networking hour guests enjoyed coffee hot off the mobile Cappuccino in the Park truck, and oohed and ahhed over the local San Diego Etsy Vendors who were displaying their goodies… They all specialize in hand-crafted wedding goods… garlands, hairpieces, invites, jewelry + so much more.  Hall Weddings + Events, who planned this months meeting, is on the brink of launching their vintage rentals service & they were there with vintage seating arrangements as well as creating whimsical centerpieces on all the dinning tables.  Lace overlays and layered doilies paired with vintage mason jars and bottles… LOVE!  Tiffany of Cali Cards created the most amazing programs complete with envelopes! Once guests took their seats the program began with a panel of awesome San Diego vendors, Paul Barnett, Giuseppe Ciuffa, Victoria Schroeder and Thomas Bui.  We had a delicious lunch provided by Eco Caters and tunes from Steve Hasty of Advanced Entertainment.  And the sweet ending… Batter Up Cupcakes, always so yummy!
