BACHELORETTE FEATURE

I have had several people contact me about past content and downloads from CBI, so I will be sharing some of the popular posts and features. They can also be found in the ARCHIVES.

Since it’s Friday and we are heading into the weekend, I’ll share one of my absolute favorite weekends. My Bachelorette in Temecula.

EMILY ALDER BACHELORETTE FEATURE

We rented this (update, the house we stayed in is no longer available) beautiful home in Temecula, a popular Southern California wine tasting destination. The plan was to lounge by the pool, go wine tasting, eat too much food and just enjoy our time together.

Friday night we got all dressed up and headed to downtown Temecula and after drinks and a little wait we snagged a table at Public House. They were so great to us, our waiter was so patient being a 20 something guy dealing with 15 ladies. After several bottles of wine and stuffing ourselves we nixed the idea to go out dancing and headed back to the house to hit the spa and relax.

Saturday, my wonderful sister put together a limo tour tasting at 3 wineries. We started at Falkner Winery, then headed to a smaller tasting at Vindemia (their sparkling grenache is amazing) and finished off a tasting and lunch at Mount Palomar Winery. Each tasting room had their benefits, we each received a free glass at Falkner and our guide was hilarious. Vindemia was a small, romantic, & outdoor tasting area. It was by far my favorite, especially the chilled rosé. Mount Palomar was quite large and fairly busy, they had the most diverse tastings and a delicious restaurant we stopped at for lunch.

After tasting we headed back to the house to lounge by the pool, consume cheese & charcuterie plates, play games and enjoy some cocktails.

I put together Bachelorette Favor Bags and supplies for a custom cocktail.

SIMPLE CHEESE BOARD

a fairly well known fact about me… I am a major fan of cheese and charcuterie. I mean who isn’t #amiright? Almost every time we have people over I use it as an excuse to stock up and serve a cheese plate. I even have a board dedicated to cheese. If thats not true love I don’t know what is.

Okay, that might have gone a bit far, you catch my drift though.

I try to always have a selection on hand in case I feel like snacking through dinner or having some friends swing by. A few types of meat, cheese, fruit, and a baguette and you’re good to go.

We recently had some friends in town and I threw together a simple plate of cheeses & meats.

A SIMPLE CHEESEBOARD ON EMILY ALDER | put together an easy cheese board for last minute guests. these are my favorites | www.EMIYLALDER.com

a wedge of President Brie, Columbus sliced Calabrese Salami, Sliced figs*, crumbled Bleu d’Auvergne Roquefort, Savannah Bee Co Honey for Cheese, Old Amsterdam Aged Gouda, Columbus sliced dry Coppa, and a sliced french baguette, toasted to give it some crunch and warmth.

With the exception of the Cheese Honey, you can find all these items near the deli section of your local market. I can’t tell you how delicious Savannah Bee Co Honey for Cheese is. It goes with each of the cheeses on the plate. It’s definitely something to have in the pantry.

*figs are seasonal so you can always replace with a bunch of grapes or crisp apple. i also like to cut up some figs and top with crumbled Roquefort and honey and pop in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes.

Don’t forget the wine as well. That would be a travesty. This is one of my favorite bottles. Don’t forget my invitation either 😉

BRANDING EMILY ALDER

EMILY ALDER BRANDING STYLESHEET SIMPLE

When I started working on the logo for EMILY ALDER I knew I wanted to do something simple. I sat down and doodled my name a few times and went from there.

The result being very similar to my signature. Well a very neat version of my signature. I incorporated the textures, inspiration, and colors I wanted to go forward with.

I created a branding stylesheet that would make it easy to implement the branding throughout my website, designs, and print.
