MINGLING AT CHURCH ESTATE VINEYARDS

Rolling vineyards surrounded by magnificent gardens modeled after Monet’s estate at Giverny provided the perfect backdrop for WIPA’s monthly networking mixer at the Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu.

Ellen enjoyed the Vineyard Cocktail made
by Good Gracious! Events' Mixologist Dan Smith. The vodka was donated by Stockholm Vodka, Stockholm Imports, Inc.

Artful flower arrangements were scattered on tables throughout the estate. It was the perfect touch by Bound, A Floral and Event Studio and Floral Sense LLC.


We were served festive beverages and a buffet of cheeses, artisanal breads, crackers and summer fruit.  The event was hosted by Good Gracious! Events who did an amazing job in the presentation, service, and taste!
Fresh water made special with ripe summer peaches and fragant thyme.



After the cocktail hour we strolled through the gardens down to the presentation area which was setup with exotic tents provided by Raj Tents and decadent white leather couches provided by Form D├ęcor.





After an informative presentation, we were all anticipating a fabulous luncheon by the lake from Good Gracious! Events. 
The luncheon setup was luxurious and the food was sumptuous.  Wonderful, local, fresh ingredients beautifully presented and delicious to eat! 
Grand Soirees Event Design and Coordination produced the adorable menus in little gift boxes. They also created all the printing for the event. Everything was well thought out and skillfully executed.

The perfect touch was the cappuccino station by The Cappuccino Club, Inc., and the delectable mini doughnuts with assorted toppings offered by The Fry Girl Inc.


This fairyland venue made us feel that we had flown to Europe for a mini vacation somewhere in Italy or France.  It was the perfect afternoon getaway.  We could all imagine catering a magical wedding at Church Estate Vineyards.
