Post-elopement party

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Napa Valley where we eloped. We want to have a party for about 50 to 75 friends in Northwest or Capitol Hill. We would prefer to carry the wine theme, so maybe a wine bar, and some hors douvres. We also have some macarons coming in from Bouchon in Napa, so we would like to serve those too.

We are hoping to spend a maximum of $3000 for food and drinks. Is this reasonable? Suggestions for locations?

  1. Sonoma on the Hill would be a good carry-over of the Napa theme. They have private event info on their website ( It looks like $3000 would be doable for the lounge. The space is really nice and their wine selection is fantastic.
