I went to my first event hosted by Seattle blogger Cassandra Lavalle of coco + kelley yesterday with my co-worker and had a fabulous time. Additionally, it was my first time stepping foot into West Elm, which is pretty much heaven for a designer. I found myself wanting every little item and dreaming about my future home in which it could be furnished entirely by West Elm. I even came across the popular desk used by many of the bloggers that I idolize. It’s $300, but that’s okay. Someday, it could be mine!
The event was on entertaining guests and setting up parties for the upcoming spring/summer season. I loved this set up above because of the primary color theme and the spice rub takeaways for guests!
After the event, Toby and I decided to continue on with celebrating our Wednesday and went out to dinner at Tilkum Place Cafe – my first time! I actually worked with the restaurant before while in college when I had them sponsor an auction that I was working on, but I had never tried it before. Our first footstep into the restaurant was pretty much what sold us! We shared the clams (the special!) as an appetizer and Toby ordered the Savory Tart while I had the Roasted Vegetable Salad. It was the perfect meal for our Wednesday celebration and…just because!
