Vacation Destination: Napa

Wow!! My husband and I just returned from a restful, relaxing week in Napa Valley, California. The trip was through his company- a celebration of top employees from the past year. It was an amazing way to reward hard working employees... and their spouses!


We stayed at a classic resort, Meadowood.


It was quiet and peaceful. Each guest was given a cottage tucked into the hills.





Throughout the week we toured wineries, dined on fresh food, played croquet, and even took a hot air balloon ride.








Everything in Napa was so fresh and beautiful.



 Of course I spied a few design ideas I plan to use at home too.

Tree Stumps: Used to add height and visual interest to wine and food.

 Wine Barrels: Perfect for cocktail tables or cut them in half and use them as side-tables.

Outdoor Chandeliers: As the wind blew, the glass on these lights tinkled like bells. The white linens and glass accents made this outdoor dinner feel so elegant. 


Potted Plants: I saw lots of potted rosemary and other herbs used as centerpieces everywhere we went. Simple terra cotta pots filled with fresh greenery are easy and beautiful. 


 It was such a memorable week!




One of my favorite blogs- Centsational Girl is hosting a great link party this week featuring bloggers' favorite vacations. And since I just unpacked my suitcases, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share my trip. Don't forget to stop by and see the other gorgeous destinations.
