Caroline and John both grew up in Orinda, CA, where their families still reside, so nearby Napa Valley was an obvious choice for their party.

"It reminded us of Southern France," explains Caroline. To achieve the festive yet elegant look Caroline and John had envisioned, the decor included fuchsia, purple and lime green plaid taffeta tablecloths, paper lanterns and antique chandeliers, which hung from the weeping willow trees.
