We are excited to share photos from a recent dinner party we designed for the Amador Vintners. The annual dinner is held after the "Big Crush" to show the association's appreciation to its thirty-seven member wineries. The Vintners Association prepared the food and we asked one of the private chefs we work with to create a few tasty hors d'oeuvres to complement the evening's hearty fare.
The paper cones, made from brown paper and twine, held handcrafted chocolate.
The wonderful assortment of pumpkins were generously donated by Amador Flower Farm.
Manzanita, burlap, candles, pumpkins and chestnuts were used in abundance.
Two long tables were each set for thirty-five.
We made the gold cake stands from clear glass plates and candlesticks. We simply attached the candlesticks to the plates and sprayed them gold, then we mounded chestnuts on top.
Although difficult to see, this is an 8-feet tall manzanita chandelier. We strung 1,000 clear lights on the branches, welded a hanging apparatus to the base and turned it upside down.
We made two rustic chalkboards, trimmed them with rope and attached them to the rafters. We placed one board over the wine station and another over the food buffet. The food & wine stations were created with wine barrels and antique doors.
We would like to thank the Amador Vintners, E. Peterson & Company, Amador Flower Farm, Mike O'Neill and Chef Jason Clevenger for helping us make the night a success!
