Last month, I joined 10 of my peers for an amazing 2 days at the world renown Pebble Beach Resorts. It was an honor to be invited, and the extraordinary executive team there pampered us like there was no tomorrow. Every detail was incredibly well thought-out and beautifully executed, from the menus to the design to the lovely quotes and gifts that were left in our suites throughout the day. Let me start from the beginning...
We arrived individually to Casa Palmero, one of the three beautiful properties at Pebble Beach Resorts, to check into our suites. I especially loved the fact that there was no 'front desk' at this Mediterranean-styled estate. I was greeted by one of their staff, who checked me in right when I stepped out of my car. No lines, no hassle. Within a few minutes, I was settling into my spacious suite, and my luggages were brought to me. I love efficiency without the loss of personal touch and superior service. Casa Palmero definitely mastered this skill!
After settling into my suite a bit, I joined the other planners in the bar area, before we were escorted off to The Lodge at Pebble Beach for a decadent hour of cocktail and hors d'oeurves. It was wonderful to reconnect with old friends and to be acquainted with new ones!
When the doors to the Library were opened, it revealed a stunning room designed by Shannon Gurley, Floral and Event Design Manager at Pebble Beach. Together with the talented crew over at Blueprint Studios (we love them!), Shannon used a variety of uniquely designed furniture and elements to create a warm, inviting, and posh environment for our dinner.
