November cool brings loads of warmth from Concepts Event Design and Authentic Flavors as they hosted our November Weddings of Distinction luncheon.

A truly total member effort came through for our November networking luncheon in National City as Haydee and Frederico Alderete from Concepts Event Design invited us to their spacious showroom. What a gorgeous set-up they have. The day’s décor was spectacular!

Special thanks go out to Carrie Esparza from Authentic Flavors for providing a scrumptious lunch. Owners Mark Vogel and Justin Fitzgerald and the catering team outdid themselves. From the appetizers of Portobello sliders to the mini coq au vin pot pies and from the wonderful fall salad through the roasted butternut squash bisque and truffle ravioli, this meal shown. The topper was the crème brulee cheesecake with fresh berries. Wow ~ is all we can say!

Thank you to Lois Mathews from Lois Mathews Design for the florals. Thank you to those that donated raffle prizes. Much networking and socializing took place at our final meeting of 2010.  Happy holidays to all!
