I am also honored to be decorating a Christmas tree for the Dominican Hospital Foundation Guild fundraiser “Holidays d’Eleganz” at the Cocoanut Grove, http://sites.google.com/site/dhfguild/ . This is a 2 day event with a fashion show and lunch on Friday, November 21, and dinner and grand ball with an auction on the 22nd. It will be fabulous with wonderful donated gifts and you can purchase raffle tickets to win one of the amazingly decorated trees, all done by local florists and designers. The theme of my tree is natural history, so you know I'm going to have fun with it.
Also, the Sunset Idea House in Monterey is open until December 7. Hours are 9-4 Friday, Saturday and Sundays. http://www.sunset.com/sunset/marketplace/article/0,20633,1708721~844996,00.html I’m thrilled that they chose to use quite a few of my antiques in the home but besides that it’s just a pretty fabulous piece of land and home filled with great ideas.
