When Tuscany Meets The American Riviera…On the Beach

Santa Barbara is well -known as “The American Riviera” and its many beach locations offer quintessential oceanside events which are always memorable.  Many feel because something is beach-side, they must automatically make the meal and decor “beach-themed”.  We love seeing elements mixed up, as in this lovely Tuscan-themed rehearsal dinner we catered at the Santa Barbara Beach Club.  The setting was incredible and the colors just popped!
