We’ve been spending lots of time at the Lombardi House recently! Check out this stunner we worked on with Bare Minerals. An intimate dinner to celebrate the launch of their new skincare line that focuses on natural ingredients and radiant skin. Our menu incorporated elements found in the products and the overall event design really brought their brand to life. Find out more about the products here. Images by Esther Lee.
Luxury watch retailer Westime Watches recently teamed up with Devon to celebrate the launch of their new Star Wars collaboration.

You can find the full recipes here and here.
We were so thrilled to have been asked to cater this year’s FOX Emmy’s Media Center! UP was on hand making sure the media and winners were happy and full throughout the day. Keeping in mind that food needed to be accessible and easy to eat we created a menu of grab and go items placed on unique setups throughout 8 event spaces. It was a blast working on such a high energy event with an amazing group of vendors. Photos by Scott Clark.
We love when our corporate clients think outside the box! UP teamed up with the incredible Savvy Events to help bring Burnham Benefits 20 Year Anniversary to life. They recently expanded their beautiful Irvine office and wanted to highlight the spaces throughout. To do this, we created four unique stations to be placed throughout the space, giving their guests a walking and eating tour of the new additions. Images below by Troy Grover Photography.
Urban Palate recently had the pleasure of collaborating with bohemian designer and blogger Justina Blakeney, in celebration of her book release, The New Bohemians.
The event was held at the beautiful Hotel Figueroa — an ideal setting for Justina’s outdoor Boho Bash!
We were thrilled to bring the boho vibes to life alongside One Kings Lane, photographer Amanda Vanvels, designer Eva Franco, as well as to be in the mix alongside Justina’s creative circle of family and friends!
One of our favorite projects at UP is sending out yummy curated gifts to friends and collaborators. This spring we put together a basket filled with the essentials – bread, cheese, charcuterie in a jar, honey infused with lavender and rosemary, and of course wine in a can! Joanne Pio and Esther Lee captured these amazing photos of the process. Final photo by Urban Palate.
