We recently had the pleasure of working with Bri of designlovefest and Angela of Angela + Ithyle at the latest stop on their BLOGSHOP tour. It was so much fun creating a unique and inspired menu for this creative bunch. Day 1 started out with the Urban Palate take on a bento box. We served our delicious Asian inspired menu in gorgeous bento boxes from Takenaka. Day 2 was our version of a (not-so) traditional box lunch which included custom made Urban Palate for BLOGSHOP packaging. So great to spend a few days with this amazing group!

When thinking about things we are thankful for this year, we find ourselves remembering events that make us happy to be in the business we’re in.
Avery’s 1st Birthday was one of those events.
Not only are we in love with this cute, precocious child but her parents, family, and friends as well. The party was set in an idyllic Westside park and had all the food, crafts, and cupcakes befitting the celebration of a first year on the planet.
We were pleased to set a spread of delicious sandwiches, salads, and charcuterie. The lobster rolls, Korean style potato salad, and grilled nectarine salad were our favorites.
Many thanks to Susie & Rory, Marble Rye Photography and Vanilla Bake Shop for helping to make this such a blast!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Hope you have as much to feel thankful about as we do.
We love to get on the road and kick back for a wedding in the Malibu hillside at Saddlerock Ranch.
The bride and groom were a pleasure to work with and it gave us the opportunity to work with the creative, gracious, and stylish Paige and Kelly from Bash, Please.
It also gave us the opportunity to work with one of our very favorite floral designers, Carissa Jones of JL Designs. Her usage of bay leaf, rosemary, thistle, and gorgeous white flowers made for spectacular arrangements and garland.
Cake Monkey also provided a dessert station that was both decadent and down home at the same time. Elizabeth is a genius with sweets.
We enjoyed presenting a rustic menu that included enoki mushroom shooters, housemade burrata and heirloom tomato pizzettes, grilled tri tip, roasted salmon, and a wild mushroom and meyer lemon risotto. Fun times.
