Throwing a party in San Francisco is unlike throwing a party anywhere. There are shops upon shops to explore when planning an event in San Francisco, with flagships looming above and gorgeously styled independent boutiques lining many of the city’s streets.

There is one place though, that beats them all for planning the perfect party in this city. Take a leisurely stroll down to the Ferry Building Marketplace to find anything you could need from flowers, to cheeses, gorgeous dessert stands, balloons, even a shop solely dedicated to the selling of pig parts. It is a party stylist’s dream and a wonderful adventure to happen upon no matter your reason to visit.
