FARMHOUSE at Roger's Gardens … and What I Wore

Last week the highly anticipated

Field to ForkRestaurant
located in Roger's Garden's
had a soft opening.

I have been anxiously awaiting this opening
like none other!
Roger's Gardens is always a an absolute favorite of mine
the opportunity to have a great meal and wine there
completely gets me excited!

I knew I wanted to wear something special.
An outfit that spoke to the grandness of the long awaited opening
still embrace a casualness
 of a  restaurant that was set inside the iconic nursery.

I chose my new Love sweater from  a lovely shop 
 Sundancer Del Mar
that we found on one of our many trips to San Diego.

I paired it with my ball dress from Beholden.
Those of you who are loyal followers of my blog
might recognize that this is the very same dress
I wore as Mother of the Bride.
Now refreshed into a ball skirt and sweater ensemble.

Platforms from Anthropologie
a straw basket for a purse
my latest shell crown finish the look.

The  Farmhouse restaurant is located on six acres
in a garden like setting.

My favorite part …
it has open air cafe style seating
as well as a well appointed bar.

As a big gardener
has always been a favorite stop of mine.

And now that they've added a most charming restaurant
it's a must stop if you find yourself in the Newport Beach area
appreciate great healthy food and lavish gardens.

Their attention to aesthetics
is always an inspiration.

Like this charming herb garden planted 
in such a charming way
that greets you upon entering.

The setting is at once both intimate and airy.

They were able to refinish and incorporate an antique gazebo
that used to be on Disneyland's Main Street
has been at Roger's since before we had kids.

Now stripped down to blend in with the new restaurant
it's the perfect place to sit with a cocktail!

At Roger's Gardens
it is their absolutely lush attention to detail
that always gets my heart racing!

And the restaurant is imbued with the same glorious
abundance of beauty
down to the fresh and imaginative floral arrangements on every table.

The grape vines were brought in perfectly ripe and gorgeous
has me missing Napa and Sonoma!

Executive Chef and  co owner
Rich Mead
does a wonderful and  innovative menu
at this field to fork restaurant.

There is a sense of peace at the Farmhouse
with it's open concept
set amidst Roger's garden.

A true lushness that seems to envelop ones soul.

Open for lunch and dinner
sunsets golden hour is definitely my favorite time to visit.

Even the restrooms are are beautifully done!
A gorgeous restroom
is always the final touch for me!

It says that every detail
has been checked off
in creating a pleasing and joyful restaurant experience 
for guests.

The Farmhouse definitely gets an A+ all around.

Both inside and out and food as well!
We love it so much we went twice on the weekend …
I can't wait to go back again!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. I absolutely LOVE your blog, Tamera (I haven't been able to "comment" on the last ones - the comments box didn't materialise. I loved your sunset beach picnic - the very same Pacific Ocean as we have breakfast picnics beside and watch the sun rise.) Your posts are beautiful, inspiring, creative. And your dress style stunning (love those photos silhouetted against the sky and mountains).

  2. Just started following your blog, love love love your outfits and hats! After seeing the Love sweater, I called Sundancer Del Mar and ordered one (and passed along that I saw it on your blog). Great ideas and inspiration!

  3. I am dying to get to Rogers Gardens and check that out! Thank you so much for the lovely post. May I ask what color nail polish you have on your hands? I have been wanting a color similar to that! Happy Friday!!

    1. Hello Cindy. It might not show in the photos … but my nail color is a true white, with a gel overlay. Thanks for asking! Enjoy checking out the Farmhouse at Roger's Gardens! It's definitely worth a trip!

  8. Your pictures are stunning Tamara, love the landscape and your beautiful outfit. So smart wearing the sweater on top of the stunning neutral print of your dress, such a feminine look. Enjoyed the Farmhouse flower photos as well.
