Over the weekend I drove up to San Francisco with my friend Dawn Lucy of Fashion Should Be Fun. We headed up to the city for a rewardStyle class on entertaining. The class was really fun because we were not only there to socialize, we were entertained too!
The event took place at The Cheese School in the Mission district. Who knew there was a school for cheese?!?! We were taught all about pairing wine with cheese, which is very handy when choosing the menu for an event held in your home. Loved it!
In addition to wine and cheese pairings, we learned all about flower arranging. Normally when I entertain, I purchase flowers from the supermarket, put some water in the vase, add the packet, and then plop the flowers into the vase. Now that I have learned how to arrange them, I am going to be more careful, and mindful, of how I create my centerpieces. Love!
Part of the event was social. We were treated with delicious appetizers, bean salad, and beautiful decor. In addition to the atmosphere, the event was filled with local bloggers who were fun to meet, talk to, and befriend! I met so many fabulous, nice people that night! I love connecting with like-minded, local bloggers.
Before the event, Dawn and I spotted this mural a couple of blocks from The Cheese School and thought it would be fun to snap pictures of our outfits in front of it. We loved the composition of the mural. Isn’t it cool! I love the mix of showing artists painting our beautiful city, and children studying. It displays the intellectual yet artistic side of San Francisco which makes our city so fabulous.
The Mission is filled with murals, do you have a favorite one? If so, please share in the comments below!
