Pops for lunch?

We were proud to be the "edible" sponsor at this past Wednesday's ABC Orange County's coordinators' luncheon at The Dock in Newport Beach. Lindsay Longacre of LVL Events was kind enough to invite us. Not only did we have an opportunity to showcase our cake pops for over 40 bridal consultants but also met some other fantastic entrepreneurs in the industry.
Kristy McTaggart of Artiface created some beautiful custom nametags and menus to match the violet and red theme of the luncheon.

The colors were chosen by Larrissa Rehder, owner of Inviting Occasion, a floral and event design company. Her eye for art and beauty, and innovative ideas helped her win the 2009 Association of Bridal Consultants Trendsetters Award. This was Just a Bite's first coordinators' luncheon and Larrissa was happy to lend a hand (and several display elements) to help us create a table of pops for the coordinators to see and try. Thank you Larrissa! If you are looking for an artist, not just a "florist", please check out Inviting Occasion.

Capturing all of these memorable touches was Joel of Studio EMP. You will see some samples of his work in this blog. Thanks Joel for catching these great pop shots!

Hosting this elegant and festive luncheon was Christine Overstreet, owner of The Dock. Although I have not had a chance to dine there, the atmosphere was intimate and beautiful, right on the water. The hors d'oeuvres chosen for the event were divine, strawberries on a skewer with spun sugar, eggplant tempura topped with ahi and caviar, and ceviche served on a silver spoon. I can't wait to go back! My favorite touch was the candy bar Christine had set up for her guests to take a final treat for the road.

Cake pops have been very popular for weddings. They are often used as escort cards. In additon, cake pop bouquets make beautiful centerpieces and can be customized to match the flowers and linens.
They are a unique addition to candy stations or even a substitute for the traditional wedding cake. They can be used as a sweet treat to tide over your guests prior to the ceremony or between the ceremony and reception.

Also a great favor with a personal thank you note from the couple either packaged individually or in boxes of 2-4 pops labeled with the bride and grooms names and wedding date. Do you have an idea we haven't mentioned??? Tell us!
