It would be a dream come true if I could always host a party! There’s nothing I love more than entertaining, connecting with my tribe and creating a meaningful experience for them. The past few months have been a wonderful whirlwind for me and The Kachet Life and I have been craving connection at home. In the middle of my travels, I had a week at home and wanted to gather some of my friends and fellow creatives for some wine, snacks, and conversation in celebration of my Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker nod!
It was important for me to have this gathering as a reminder that we all have to stop celebrate more. We can get so caught up in the day to day of life that we don’t stop to take a moment and celebrate our accomplishments, the big ones, and the small ones, too. I have been on the go and almost missed the opportunity to celebrate such a meaningful recognition.
With just a week to put it the event together, but I decided to contact some of my favorite local partners and they helped me pull it off! I am so grateful to have so many partners that have really become friends. Their belief in my brand and the content we work to create means so much to me. Their support of my other endeavors including The Blog Bloc means even more. In addition to inviting some friends, I decided to share it with my Instagram fam because their support helped me achieve some of my goals. It takes a village and I’m so thankful!
I wanted the gathering to feel intimate, so my friends with Fulcrum Property opened the doors to the last Modern at Eames Walk home for sale in The Bridge District. I went there a month prior for a pop-up shop and open house and loved it. I couldn’t believe it was still available, but I was so excited to have The Kachet Life’s first event there!
The design was ultra modern and open. Like with all parties, people mainly stayed in the kitchen. That worked out perfectly due to double sliding doors to the patio!
Because the house was beautifully furnished, we didn’t need to change much around. It felt like home! If I went out on one detail, it was the nametags. I was so excited to have Ashley Baumgartner do some calligraphy for me. I believe that sometimes the tiniest details can make the event a little extra special!
I can always count on Nugget Markets to come through with some crowd-pleasing treats. Their Gourmet to Go menu made it so easy because the food is beautifully plated in wooden rustic serving platters, so you don’t even have to dress about your tablescape. I ordered the Antipasto, Vegetarian Mezze, and California Favorites Cheese platters and they were enjoyed by all. I’ve used Nugget for parties and The Blog Bloc events and you really can’t go wrong with any of their offerings. When in doubt, always go for the cheese. The California one is to diiiiiie for!
My friends at Bogle Vineyards provided some of their Phantom wines for the event! Phantom is their latest label, which is a spooky ode to their winery spirit. I was able to enjoy both during the party and I’m so glad I did. Their Chardonnay has notes of green apple and pear with a creamy finish and it is absolutely delicious. Their red wine blend has Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes. It is full of rich berry notes with a bold spice at the end. It’s rich and every red drinker’s new favorite wine. Trust me!
The event was made fabulous by so many people I respect and admire.
Many are friends of the blog so you should recognize them. 🙂

I’m not sure when, but know that another Celebrate with Kachet is coming your way SOON! While it’s nice to celebrate accomplishments and life stages, it’s important to celebrate the here and now. The air in our lungs. The friends we can hug. And of course, the delicious food we can enjoy with them, too. 🙂 Thank you for showing The Kachet Life some love. <3
