A unique event planning and design service in California Wine Country and beyond
I curate designs from every day, organic, natural surroundings. As I grew up in wine country, I discovered treasures outside my home that I still find today. Mother Nature and the seasonal changes that take place in the Napa Valley, allows my designs to evolve throughout the year. I forge nature’s treasures: I find the perfect mossy branch in winter and collect wildflowers in spring. I am a searcher of wild plum blossoms, a hunter of unique wood pieces, a gleaner of my grandfather’s abalone shells, and a hiker in search of whatever crosses my path. You may also find me at the local artisans, boutiques or the surrounding antique stores in search of those rare one of a kind pieces that completes my design.
From nature’s bounty, hidden treasures and your vision. I will design a memorable event for you.
