Sunset mag Weekend Celebration

My sweet friend M. invited me to go to the Sunset Magazine Celebration Weekend this past Saturday – we had such a good time!

The Sunset Home exhibit was interesting – the style reminded me of Mad Men and wasn’t something I’d replicate at home but there were some gorgeous touches such as this light fixture, which I want in my home. Now. Immediately.

I would LOVE a reading nook looking out onto the backyard and I have the perfect place for it. Unfortunately, that is where my children play ;D so, not happening for now.

Loved the idea of having a lit up map of California!

How sweet is this little stool with its nail head detailing? Also, need one stat, please!

What I really, truly, absolutely wanted to bring home with me were these two beauties:

Seriously, how gorgeous are they?

This lovely lady shared some of Susan Feniger’s AMAZING pork tacos. Holy crackers, those were so good. We also got a recipe card so both M and I will be attempting to recreate them.

How about THIS for a true glamping experience?

This company sets up these divine tents for your enjoyment – I’d like one in my backyard, please!

The food truck selection was amazing – including my favorite, Peruvian food truck Sanguchon – both M and I enjoyed our lunch there, even though it was a little spicy.

There was also a booth for a truck that only does Creme Brulee, my husband’s favorite! So M and I bought three, because she came over for dinner that night 😀

Putting the final touches on mine!

This being a Sunset magazine event, there were some lovely displays of plants and I got a lot of ideas for plants that will do well in our environment.

This tree basil was adorable! And yummy 😀

Of course, we partook of some wine tasting – these lovely ladies from Lola Kay had a great, easy-to-drink red wine that I loved:

I am so glad M called me to go to this event, and I am also glad my husband was able to hang out with the boys so us girls could bond over wine and window treatments and pretty plants. Lots of great ideas and now my project list is about 7 items longer!

One thought on “Sunset mag Weekend Celebration

  1. Looks like a great day! I went last year and enjoyed it, but wouldn’t want to visit every time (it got kind of packed). I, too, adore the reading nook and the CA map is really fun. The Creme Brulee options look wonderful.
