by Bethany Thomas, ABC-OC Communications Chair

You know the saying ‘if the walls could talk’? Then you probably heard what this cast of characters said about last week’s ABC-OC event at Chuck Jones by 24 Carrots 

“Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Mud. Brilliance. That’s all I can say. Sheer, unadulterated brilliance!” Wile E. Coyote

“The way I run this thing you’d think I knew something about it (24) Carrots are devine… You get a dozen for a dime, It’s maaaa-gic!” Bugs Bunny

“You know, it is possible to be too attractive. Do not come wiz me to ze Casbah – we shall make beautiful musicks togezzer right here!” Pepe Le Pew

Afterward, our own characters had this to say about the evening on our group Facebook page –

“I learned about two new categories and other changes about the Trendsetter Awards from Stacey Hofflich Gitten of Hitching Post Public Relations. I also learned all about fabrics from Rrivre Davies ….I am now doing bridal gown design. No more event film making for me,” Steve Moses

“I’m an animated person. To be surrounded by animated characters was wonderful. Even the shyest of people were animated just being there.” Alan Katz

“The flourless chocolate cake by 24 carrots was INCREDIBLE!” Katherine Hoggard

“The salad bar was fun and delicious!” Niloufar Sanai Gibson

“The Trendsetter categories and rules are now posted on our website at http://abc-oc.net/trendsetters. Entries will be accepted starting mid-May!” Stacey Gitten

October Coordinator Progressive Luncheon: OC Mart Mix at SOCO

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 – OC Mart Mix Courtyard at SOCO


Making couple’s dreams come true is what we do. And this progressive luncheon was designed to deliver creative experiences for coordinators to draw inspiration for them.

The afternoon started with checking in at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity where the open and large space delighted the senses with cartoon characters we all knew and loved. As everyone moved the the courtyard to mingle outside, we strolled through B Bride and Design Visage where refreshing cocktails and h’dourves were served on this hot late summer day. Now available at B Bride is the Jenny Yoo collection of bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses with all the gorgeous accessories and talent to create a bride’s look like they had their very own personal stylist. A fun surprise was having DV artists give everyone a lip look for Fall that everyone really enjoyed.

The tables were designed for an afternoon tea with blush, ivory and white. Delicate lace linens provided by Wildflower Linen created a dreamy effect accented with the beautifully textured glass and tableware provided by Archive Vintage Rentals. The florals were filled with roses and orchids by White Sakuras. Eight randomly selected guests received the table art that complemented the decor in lieu of table numbers. Hand-painted by Bethany Thomas of Commemory Fine Art in the theme of the luncheon’s colors and names, the artwork became memorable keepsakes for guests to take home.

Culinary creations by Christopher Garren provided everyone with food combinations with the finest ingredients from scratch. Once especially delightful that so many raved about was his cucumber, onion and mint salad that was refreshing in a sweet and savory way. As everyone enjoyed lunch, the sounds of Marieve Herington Band and Dirty Sugar set the smooth sounds for new and old friends to catch up.

The afternoon concluded with a tour of Wildflower Linen by Youngsong Martin where our senses were filled with sumptuous colors, textures and delicious dessert – wedding cake varieties by Christopher Garren.
