It’s the most anticipated garden event on the West Coast, and T.W.O. got a chance to attended this 25th Annual Southern California Spring Garden Show this past weekend. It features more than 75 specialty garden vendors offering exotic plants and unique accessories. Check out the photos below of some of our favorite flowers and displays.
Spring has Sprung!
Decorating. Design. Deals! T.W.O. has been having a great time finding some great items for their home decorating project! This past weekend, we stumbled upon some fabulous items for our coffee table. The color scheme throughout our house is neutrals with some blue accent pieces. Most of our beautiful wood furniture (coffee table, media chest, dinner room table) are all on the darker side, so we needed to tie in some neutral accessories. To do so, we made our merry way down to HomeGoods and bought these wonderful tabletop pieces! We left the store with some lovely treasures – without emptying our wallets!
Thank you HomeGoods!
How would you spend your perfect Sunday? Taking a walk? Going to the gym or movies? Baking in the kitchen? Well, all those are great things as long as you enjoy doing them. T.W.O. spent their Sunday afternoon in Santa Barbara, which is one place they used to call home. It has a special place in our heart – from soccer tournaments, to watching our brothers play summer college baseball, to one of us attending UCSB and most recently a family wedding.
A perfect Sunday in Santa Barbara to us would be brunch at The Boathouse, a stroll on State Street, stopping by Wendy Foster for our hair ties and ending with a visit at Coast 2 Coast Collection.
The Boathouse (formerly known as Brown Pelican) is a great restaurant located on Hendry’s Beach. It’s a great spot for family, friends or even a romantic date! Three out of four times when we have dined at The Boathouse, we have seen dolphins. Let’s hope that we just didn’t jinx ourselves – or you! After lunch – – – on to State Street!
Coast 2 Coast Collection was introduced to us 2 years ago and little did we know that it would be a part of our lives. From candles, home décor, vintage jewelry and most recently a custom made bracelet for a bridesmaids’ gift from our sister-in-law, Coast 2 Coast is a definite stop on our trips to Santa Barbara. This luxury gift and tableware boutique has a wide array of brands – Bernardaud, Chrstofle, Hermes, Lalique and St. Louis. Immediately when you walk in the store, your jaw drops and you just want to buy everything for your home. From the linens to the table settings and frames and mirrored trays to the serving utensils – they all are luxurious pieces.
And what goes well with these pieces…of course vintage costume jewelry! Some of the designers are Chanel, Dior, Givenchy and Miriam Haskell. We didn’t have any trouble finding something we liked – – – that’s for sure! These pieces are classic and original. The person sitting next to you at the charity event won’t be wearing the same necklace. Sounds fabulous, right?
Men – there is also a sports memorabilia section for you – – – so don’t wait in the car!
Next time you are in Santa Barbara, you have to make a stop at Coast 2 Coast. Don’t walk away empty handed; you will regret it later! Thanks Holly for having us!!
