So our good friend, Carmen of Sweet Sauce Coffee, calls us up and says “Hey, I have a crazy idea. Let’s do a pop dinner in the desert.” We said “Yup, you’re right, that’s crazy.” But since we are crazy we starting planning it with her! Everyone does always tells us they wish they could be a part of our wedding reception dinners. So we wanted to create that same outdoor dinner experience in the desert that anyone could attend!
We wanted to keep the group small as this was out first go around. So we had an intimate dinner under the stars with an open fire and amazing farm-to-table food, drinks. SweetSauce Coffee providing all the food and drink. And Cactus and Lace in charge of decor and stylizing. We didn’t reveal the location to the dinner guests until the day of the event, but it was a raw desert location that is near Valley of Fire on private land the required a bit of off roading so it was quite the adventure. We intend to do more the future at different locations so keep a watch on our social media for more dinner party announcements, you want wanna miss out on the next one.
