Words cannot truly express how incredible it was to have all these people in the same place at the same time. Life works in mysterious ways, and this dinner came together to honor all the people who helped me start Saltwater Threads.
The evening started out with acoustic music by Alex Bodrero on the deck & home of Jen from JEN'S PIRATE BOOTY. With a cocktail hour that included the most artistic setting put on with Henna art by Prashanta of Divya Henna (SoCal) and if you wanted to have your hair braided by our MAKEUP IN HEAVEN team Leah & Laura curating all sorts of fishtails, franch, & loose braids. There was something for everyone.
Once Dinner was served the real MAGIC happened. Ash, head chef and owner of Manchego Santa Monica served a meal fit for a king. A 5 course meal that was as memorable as the entire night itself. From handmade ravioli to homemade short ribs this dinner topped them all with it's charm & new age charisma.
Dinner concluded with dessert by Cynthia Bren of Freedom Farm Malibu a Blueberry, Lemon, & Lavender cake paired with Coffee by Bent Penny Coffee a local and all organic coffee company.
