October 2016: Beer and Wine Fall Harvest
Fall: A time when pumpkin patches are around every corner, Halloween candy haunts you in the grocery, and ABC members are racing to finish their Trendsetter submissions. But what better way to celebrate harvest time than with some beer and wine?
Erika’s Elegance Weddings & Events hit a “hole in one” with this October meeting held at Tustin Ranch Golf Club. She called on Sweet Salvage to provide the most stunning and festive vintage rentals to lounge on during some outdoor mingling. However, as we all know, one can’t stay sitting for long when food is in sight, especially when it has a perfectly paired drink to go with it! The Tustin Ranch Pretzels and Bitburger German Pilsner were a huge hit, as was the Smoked Salmon Tartar and Champagne. With a drink in one hand, an appetizer in the other, and the musical styling’s of Don Covel Entertainment in your ear, it was hard to imagine this meeting could get any better….but it did!
Members eventually found their way indoors where some more fabulous food pairings were waiting. As small plates and glasses began to fill everyone’s hands again, the tables adorned with GBS Linens were put to good use. Meanwhile, it didn’t take long for everyone to spot Frank Salas Photography’s fun photo booth. How could we miss it with all the creative props he provided? He was also there to capture the laughs and smiles on the dance floor, which wasn’t hard thanks to Visions Entertainment and Steve Burdick Entertainment who were dishing out some of their favorite tunes on the turn tables.
With this being the last meeting of the year, members were reminded about the Trendsetter Gala, which will be held at the Disneyland® Hotel in Anaheim on December 13th. Although everyone was looking forward to that celebration, this one was far from over. The Pie Hole was there to put the cherry on top of a wonderful night. Yet, most surprising of all would have to be our honorary vendor, Mother Nature who spoiled us all with perfect weather. Thank you to everyone who came out and we can’t wait to see you dressed to the nines in December!
Thank you to all of our Sponsors!
