Via candlelit path carved from the desert floor, 20 guests encountered

an intimate dining destination within a remote Sonoran alcove.

Amidst towering saguaros + virgin desert brush, a tonal palette echoed the environment’s

soft sand + blushed ashen hues. As to not disrupt the landscape’s neutrality, the dramatic

king’s table was adorned in complementary shades of buttermilk, khaki + blonde. Canvas director’s

chairs, each blanketed by a hand-woven shawl, evoked a sense of refined desert safari, while tabletop

accents nodded to a casual elegance at-one-with the surrounding raw aesthetic.

As the sun fell, guests were treated to a taste of adventure – tethered balloon rides ascended mere

steps from the dining table. Guests delighted in panoramic sunset views of the surrounding

desert from the basket of the hot air balloon. With the setting sun, a canopy of twinkling bistro

lights + the star-blanketed night sky, emerged. 


Guests arose from their six-course epicurean journey to tuck into a plush fireside lounge while

enjoying coffee, sweets + the ambient strum of a solo guitarist.
