Utterly Engaged Snap, Crackle, Pop New Year’s Party

James and I put on our party clothes and went to the Utterly Engaged Snap, Crackle, Pop New Year’s Party held at the beautiful Aria Hotel in Long Beach.  We arrived early to help the lovely Lucia and Henny fill their goodie bags for the guests.

The party featured their 2nd annual design challenge, once again the talent was amazing – you will have to wait to their next issue comes out to see the winning table.

So nice to catch up with friends and meet some new folk in the industry.  We were treated to late-night breakfast and beverages hosted by Avia Hotel, Organic Ice-cream from Sweet Lucie’s, Dessert Bar from Honey Bee Sweeterie and mini donuts from Dough A Deer – my sweet tooth was satisfied.
