Recently, my longtime buddy Laura gave an elegant white orchid and Champagne dinner party for her mom, Fran’s 90th birthday. Laura and her husband Jack hosted it in their new (to them) mid-century modern home on the Newport Beach Bay. Come see…
Nice place to have breakfast!
This is so great how the mirror panels reflect the bay.I spot our friend, Debbie.
Who is that person in the mirror? The finish on the sputnik chandelier was custom. The lamps in the background are vintage Murano glass.
Jack and Laura have an extensive artwork collection.
What a cool idea to use an iron chain in the fireplace… nice nautical feel! And it gets hot! I made Laura turn it on for the photo. Their talented interior designer is John Wooden.
Look at all the “Champagne bubbles” as you enter their front courtyard… They are above a koi pond and Laura said they kind of spooked the fish. But sure fun for drama when entering Fran’s party!
Happy birthday, Fran!
You are a thoughtful daughter, Laura.
