    It's pretty obvious that Jeanne Chan, curator of ShopSweetThings, has a keen eye for cool. But, when she's not searching out new, must-know shops in her native SF, the bona fide Pinterest whiz — and mother of two — plans playdates with her equally stylish mom friends. The good news?

It’s the best because they have a little kitchen to serve drinks, coffee, (and even booze if you want), and they cater food in from reputable vendors. The space is already so cute so there’s really not much decoration needed. They also have a staff on hand to help out before, during, and after the party so all we needed to do was show up and enjoy!
