Lark Pop Up Dinner with Chef Lena Ksanti

Our studio was transformed for yet another Lark Pop Up Dinner!

Special thanks to Lisa of Lark & Chef Lena Ksanti of Pure Vegan Food for hosting another beautiful and meaningful Pop Up Dinner with us. It was a collaborative affair with lots of special details from officemates Yoshi O'Connor of Floral Fête creating the most beautiful floral installations and Ali Rybczyk with signage, menu design, and custom painted the ceramic vases for Yoshi's table arrangements.

We were fortunate to see old friends, make new friends, and gather in unison to enjoy the art of conversation, delicious inspired food, and raise our glass in good cheer. 


Welcome Drinks (Chefs Whim) + Jicama with Chili Lime Salt

First course // Zucchini Rolls with Smoked Macadamia Cheese
Second course //Turmeric Glow Soup with Carrot, Sweet Potato & Shaved Fennel

A magical night with Lark Artisan Market for their communal dinner party! Special thanks to Lisa & Chef Kyle Powers for creating such an inviting atmosphere where guests mixed and mingled over a perfectly curated four course winter inspired meal.

The Masterminds of The Cream Event out did themselves yet again this year! It was a fun excuse to get out of Orange County and mix and mingle with our wedding industry friends and see first hand what creative visionaries they are. We all played by the rules and wore our shades of neutrals and entered the transformed Book Bindery in Culver City ready for a evening of fun. We were greeted by gypsy jazz by Django Foxtrot and popped by one fantasy tablescapes after another. We made our way to the Pharmacie bar and made our first hard decision of the night...which drink to have. They had a four section bar setup each side with a different spirit offering. I think all of us took an extra minute to swoon over all the paper goods over at Bliss and Bone who take luxury wedding stationery to a whole new level. The night was capped off with in true cream fashion with the best live music in the business by Élan Artists and a show stopping performance by La Follies!
