An "Autumn Affair" - Rooftop Dinner Party Celebrating the Fall Season

Take us back to this magical night....

Spring is upon us, but we wanted to take you through a little memory lane to our first event to kick off our project next season.

 Salt and Cinnamon collaborated with the talented Chef Eddie Aguilera to celebrate the Autumn Harvest on his rooftop by candle light. We love to make our guests feel like they have entered another world and leave with a dining experience like no other. So, we set the table for twelve lovely guests overlooking a beautiful coastal city with salt sea breeze filling the air at first. As the food was cooking, notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and garlic floated out the kitchen window and to our eagerly awaiting guests...we'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

Without further adieu, we would like to cordially invite you to the highlights of our rooftop dining experience celebrating the fall harvest with creative, seasonal-inspired dishes, and warm-hearted company. Photos were beautifully captured by Roxy Rodriguez Photography (we cannot get enough of her amazing work). Pure Magic.

Laughter filled the air - best ingredient to any night.

To end the evening, our dapper guests each picked a candle on the table, made a wish and blew the lights out to mark the closing of the evening, and the beginning of a beautiful new season.

 Make a wish!
