Fun Fall Date Ideas with Food!

Fall is here so get snuggly with your sweetheart on one of these local fun Fall date adventures!

Day or night, this rural ranch is open (Every Day, October 1-31, 10am-7pm) to pumpkin seekers of all ages. Stop for lunch or dinner at the family-owned Boccali’s Pizza & Pasta Restaurant just a short distance from the pumpkin patch for some homemade Italian dining inside or al-fresco. FYI: They only accept cash or check payments so come prepared. It really is a peaceful, beautiful place to spend an afternoon or evening. For a longer date, shop downtown Ojai (just 2 miles away) in the afternoon and enjoy a game of tennis at the famous Libby Park courts then head to the restaurant located at 3277 Ojai-Santa Paula Road, Ojai, California  93023 (805) 646-6116 open 7 days a week, Monday - Tuesday 4 - 9 p.m. & Wednesday - Sunday, 12 - 9 p.m. Also note, on October 14,15, 21,22,28, & 29 the pumpkin patch goes haunted after dark on Fridays and Saturdays from 7-9pm. Great food, wholesome fun, and a lot of opportunities to hold hands while taking in the best of thee season.

From experience, we can recommend a relaxing evening of cooking demonstrations, free tea, food tasting, and in-store discounts at SpiceTopia. Located at 576 E. Main St., Ventura, CA 93001 SpiceTopia is a foodie/gourmet’s dream offering free samples of several of their locally produced products. They also sell lots of spices and loose-leaf teas you can scoop yourself. Whether you are into cooking or not, you’ll be sure to enjoy tastes of the menu creations by professional Chef Amy as she provides recipes and insider tips before your eyes. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and afterwards buy items used in the meal prep demo at discounted prices. It is a very small group setting and most comfortable and laid back. A $35 class fee includes a complete recipe book, the two hour class and sampling of all the dishes on that evening’s menu. Each class begins promptly at 6:30 pm and ends at 8:30. Next one is October 20th.  Check their website for other dates and menus. 

Another experience we can recommend from experience is Downtown Ventura Food Tasting Tours. If you like food and a laid back stroll downtown, you’ll like this leisurely tour. The tour lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes and takes you to six different locations in downtown Ventura. The price includes all taxes and tips plus wine tasting for just $59 per person. You can Buy tickets online! Next Tour date is October 29! Note: Food Tasting Tours by this same company are also offered for the city of Ojai. If you go, let us know how you liked it in the comments below!

Geometry Inspired Wedding

A lot of people might ascribe geometry and shapes to a minimalist wedding design but that doesn’t always have to be the case. In fact, our favorite thing about geometry inspired wedding décor is that you can dress it up or dress it down to suit your tastes. Simple shapes can feel super dramatic—like a backdrop for an on-stage performance or they can be bare bones shaped outlines that provide a frame for a natural scenic backdrop. Here are some geometric wedding designs and décor suggestions to get you inspired. Enjoy!  Image Source We love this heptagonal wedding arch. It is such a blank slate that you can make it match any décor by dressing it up with florals of your choice. Placement outdoors could make this piece of décor an especially artistic back drop for exchanging your vows so be sure to play with placement. This arch could also be quite lovely indoors. It is simple and decorative without being over the top. Image Source: Featured on JuneBug Weddings Wedding Blog Another beauti

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
