my color theme this year was: gray, silver and orange - throwing in white accents to keep it fresh and modern....
my tablecloth was fabric from IKEA that I had my local dry cleaners hem and sew according to my table size when extended
i went to the SF flower mart and bought mums in fall colors to make the individual vases for everyone to take home....the maple leaves were also from the mart
vintage bow napkin rings
i made little notecards for everyone to write individual thanks for all the guests......implementing Neutra's font on the front to again nod to the modern
my other helper aka my sissy
the helper staying cozy
and ping pong
the helper is done
having guests is a perfect excuse to visit san francisco's best spots - there are so many:
Bernini's Medussa......simply stunning.
