Weddings of Distinction members gathered December 8th to close 2010 with a bang! The annual holiday party was staged at member hotel Hilton San Diego/Del Mar. Catering Manager Tiffany Cooper and her crew took great care of us.
Rocking music and beautiful food stations surrounded the group all night ~ from a dazzling mashed potato bar to some tasty carved tri-tip and a fresh salad station. We also enjoyed delicious hors d’oeurves of asparagus wrapped in ham, skewered fruit dollops with prosciutto and a medley of veggies and dressing. Topping the evening (beyond the wine and champagne, of course) were incredible desserts provided by fellow members Authentic Flavors/St.Tropez Specialty Cakes & Desserts, Sweet Cheeks Baking Company and The French Gourmet.
The outgoing 2010 Board was saluted. Outgoing President Bob Brichmann from Artistic Productions was toasted/roasted. The new 2011 Board was introduced ~ welcome Ann Strobel from Ann’s Plans as the 2011 President for WoD. A spirited Chinese gift exchange took place with the hot items being the naughty elf apron, the Bailey’s Irish Cream and the Cohn group gift certificate.
