The blessings of California farmers markets. Produce picked fresh in the morning and on your plate in the evening.

Our 2013 began with a beautiful All-White Baby Shower Tea Party in January. The white color scheme was very specific, as the couple had not yet revealed whether they were expecting a boy or girl. Guests were let in on the secret in the form of party favors from Tiffany’s in their signature blue boxes.

Thanks to Sharon Sacks for thinking of us!

We were also contacted to cater a cocktail party benefitting the Malibu Boy’s and Girls Club at the home of Michael Lee, where we were treated to a performance by special guest Skylar Grey.

And lets not forget about all other the beautiful weddings we were a part of this year! Here are some of our favorites:

This creative couple made a puzzle out of all the places that were important in their story, and had guests write messages on the back of the piece that they added to the puzzle. So sweet!

One of our culinary highlights of the year was creating this spectacular poke bar, with the bar itself made entirely out of ice!

We found this spanish-influenced venue particularly inspirational, not to mention beautiful.

We created two signature cocktails for the Bride and Groom, using the Bride's name, Momo, meaning Peach, as inspiration for her drink.
