My friend Yasmine invited me over for a special dinner on Saturday to celebrate her birthday – just four ladies, champagne galore, and amazing food. Walking into Yasmine’s Sausalito home feels like I’ve walked into a French cottage (don’t you just love those dog statues at the foot of the stairs?). With a perfectly distressed farm table, mason jar glasses, and a giant chalkboard menu (written in French no less), Yasmine has great style – it’s the perfect combination of the rustic and the refined. This style is also reflected in her fabulous online boutique Maison Rêve, by the way.
Being the fantastically creative hostess that she is, the birthday girl used very cute block letters as place settings. Such a fun and unique way to indicate your spot at the table. The four course meal was delicious and prepared in precise and delectable portions. We topped off the night with a decadent birthday dessert of honey tuiles and strawberries.
Thanks for a great evening, Yasmine!
