Ever since we bought the beach house in Ventura I have wanted to host a dinner on the beach. As in “toes in the sand, practically in the water” dinner on the beach. This past weekend my dream came true and it was truly magical.
I was lucky to partner with Sonnenglas as they are the ones who make these amazing mason jar solar lanterns! They have a solar cell in the lid so all you do is charge the lid in the sun, and your lantern will light up for twelve hours!
Is this just the most incredible setting you have ever seen? We had warm weather, no wind, and a gorgeous sunset.
I bought some poles at the hardware store and pounded them into the ground. Then we used stakes and supports to keep the poles taught and strung wire diagonally across the top of the poles.
I put my sea glass (that I have collected on the beach in front of our home) in the Sonnengals jars and then hung them from the wire.
I probably could have served fast food and my family wouldn’t have cared. Our view was that good! But we had tri-tip and a fabulous gourmet meal.
The setting was absolutely perfect for dinner on the beach.
