Historic Downtown San Juan Capistrano .... And A Dinner Party



Last weekend we attended another one of our monthly 'Friends Dinner'  parties.
I have written before about them HERE and HERE.
Our gatherings are made up of three couples
and 
each month we take turns hosting a dinner party.
This month we dined in 
at the gorgeous home  of the Fitts.


For the occasion I chose a dress with a ball skirt
and
 piled on my collected turquoise and blanket wrap 
as a sartorial tribute to one of my favorite areas!



If you ever find yourself in South Orange County California
I highly recommend
not only for all of the history and beauty
but these days it is becoming a mecca for new restaurants as well!



My accessory collections have come together over years of collecting.
Right now I am loving turquoise mixed with hand made wooden bracelets.
I keep a modern flair with updated sunglasses.


How absolutely adorable is this dining space!
Stacey and her husband David built the property from the ground up.
Her choice for  alfresco dining made my heart sing!!


Stacey  has a background of being one of Orange County's top wedding florists
(you can see her gorgeous business feed HERE).
and
 it completely showed with her freshly colored  alfresco table settings
in their fabulous private yard!




Stacey's menu theme was done around blood oranges
including this fabulous appetizer with burrata cheese, blood oranges and basil topped with pine nuts.

It was a magical evening of dining with good friends and good food
all outside with a rising full moon!
An enchanting evening in
 Historic Downtown San Juan Capistrano
to be sure!


As always my my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. I love your idea of a monthly friends dinner. It's always fun to take turns hosting and coming up with creative table settings and delicious food! Your turquoise collection is amazing and must have taken you a long time to accrue. It blends in so well with your colorful outfit.

  5. What an elegant dinner table, and it looks like you had a wonderful night.
    Love your turquoise necklaces and their brilliant blue colouring. I bought some in Texas about ten years ago, and they have gone quite dark and don't look nice at all now. I have wondered if they were inferior or fake, or if there is a way to clean and/or brighten them up.
    Wishing you Easter Blessings Tamera, for you and your family. xo
