5 years ago, my husband and I decided we wanted to have a party to celebrate all that we loved about the Fall. The food, the decor, the music. This then carried over into Winter and our seasonal party tradition was born. Year after year, it is one of my favorite things to host. Daveed & I love planning and throwing dinner parties for our friends, and seeing this become something that our friends look forward to every season has brought us such joy.
This year, the fall party was wonderful. Our house filled with dear friends, pumpkins, garlands and smells of Daveed’s risotto, sangria and all of the delicious fall themed foods that our friends brought to share.
It also was the least stressful year of prep. We’ve finally got this thing figured out :)
Runner fabric from Jo-anns, pumpkins, leaves and candlelight:
Leaf garlands falling from the chandelier and the walls and, of course, we had to have one of my thankful banners out.
Sangria station, a bit more decor and our littlest guest, my buddy Archie:
The risotto king. Thank you God for blessing me with a husband who can cook :)
I truly am thankful for the community we’ve been given here in San Diego. It’s not where we grew up, but it has become home, mostly due to these people. A few people had already left and I promise there were guys there too, but I am so happy to have a moment captured with some of my dear friends. Thank you Lord for these people.
