A few years ago, we featured this gorgeous, moody 30th birthday and we thought it most certainly couldn't be beat. Fast forward to today, we have the same birthday girl with a brand new soirée and she did it. Anna Wu completely topped her 30th with a genius and oh so creative way to ring in a new year. It's spoon carving made gorgeous at the hands of Melanie Abrantes + Amanda Vidmar + Kayla F Photography. See it all here!
Each year for my birthday, I like to gather a few of my friends and celebrate with a little party. Last year it was a pottery class; the year before, a lovely dinner party in the garden.
This year, I decided to get creative again, this time with a spoon carving workshop taught by Oakland-based artist Melanie Abrantes.
We learned to gouge, whittle, and finish our wooden spoons and each went home with a one-of-a-kind piece. Thank you to everyone who contributed and participated in making this a wonderful celebration!
