As we close out 2020, we are re-living one of our favorite holiday events from last year at Grand Del Mar in San Diego, inspired by Ralph Lauren and classic Christmas.

Guests were welcomed to a cozy cocktail hour, featuring a stone fireplace-inspired bar, cozy leather and velvet lounge vignettes, tartan textiles, and lush garland and reindeer accents.

Each guest was gifted a custom embroidered Pendleton blanket, displayed in a custom-built storefront.

The store was modeled after a holiday storefront you’d see strolling through New York City streets at Christmastime, with frosted glass windows, wallpaper and presents piled high!

The side loggia on the patio was transformed into a cozy movie theatre with a viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, with daybeds, cozy throws and a concession stand.

The DJ Booth was decked out with vintage snow gear and a lush garland.

The Grand Del Mar features an array of fireplaces in their event spaces, so we opted to accent each with soft conversation areas for guests to mingle and visit.

The tabletops featured classic tartan Ralph Lauren fabric and bentwood chairs–an ode to classic Christmas.

We loved every minute of putting this festive fete together, and can’t wait for events to look more like this one next year!
