Anniversary Dinner Plans

*I wrote this post last Friday 8/10*

Could it really be a week from my 10 year wedding anniversary?

So what will it be? Aulani Resort Hawaii...?

Sadly, not this year.

W San Francisco...?
W San Francisco

As wonderful as it sounds, we have school starting in a month. $$$! Holy Cow, she's really starting school already?

I thought long and hard about how to spend our special day and, with an out-of-town trip out of the picture, I considered what would be meaningful locally. We used to have a tradition of eating at Duke's Malibu, the restaurant we had our wedding reception, but the food has gone downhill since our last visit. I thought of Morton's or even the rooftop at the Standard in Downtown but we've done that before, it didn't seem all that special. Then it hit me. Our beach where we were married is the perfect place to have a pop up dinner party with close friends! I have to credit Jordan at Oh Happy Day! for the lovely inspiration. Antz made these incredible invitations for me.

I love my husband was kind when drawing my cankles!!
You can't tell but the insert pops up
The dinner will be an intimate group of 10

I went shopping with Aimee today and found some great things at World Market. I fell in love with this cabana but sadly it's not for sale. Maybe one day I can find one for future parties. We are going to use our chuppah from our wedding day.

I have butterflies in my stomach for how excited I am for this party. Tonight we are going to Ikea to pick up the dishes and look at fabric for the tablecloth. I was going to use my new tablecloth from BHLDN *I had to have it the second it went on sale!*

BHLDN Botanical Garden Tablecloth

Isn't it adorable? The bad news is, this guy measures 70"L, 50"W. Well, with 10 people sitting at our 8 foot table, I did the math and it will fall short. I may still use it as a runner because it's soo pretty! This week will be crazy busy. We have Liv's pre-school parent orientation on Wednesday and Thursday we are going wine tasting with Aimee. YAY!
