A RALEIGH STUDIOS star-studded event

Well, the Food Fare was a huge success last week!  Do you ever wonder how big events like the Food Fare and glitzy Oscar parties are pulled off, seemingly effortless?  That is due to mega production and party planners like our amazing friends at Raleigh Studios.  If you are looking to throw a celebration fit for a king, movie studio exec, billionaire tycoon or Hollywood starlet, as the case may be, look no further than Raleigh Studios to make it happen for you!  They have planned parties for the likes of ABC, Ferrari, BCBG, Microsoft, JD Power & Associates, THX, Lexus, TAG Heuer, Sherman Oaks Hospital, Hollywood Arts, Rotary International, Volkswagen, Audrey Magazine, Kid Save, Honda and Nissan.

They even offer complete motion picture production services through their affiliate, Raleigh Film.  Once you check out their slide show portfolio you’ll see why the big wigs leave it up to Raleigh Studios to create events that leave guests saying, “Now that was an affair to remember!”

BTW, Happy St. Patty’s Day!  If you didn’t wear green, the least you can do is grab a green S’muffin!

Quickie St. Patty’s Day Beer Tip: How to make green beer

3-6 drops green food coloring

12-16 oz. light beer of ale

Pour beer into the glass or pint.  Add green food coloring.  Stir slowly till the color is evenly distributed through the beer, just make sure you don’t create extra foam when you stir.

Customized S'muffins for Sugar Inc. corporate event

Customized S'muffins for Sugar Inc. corporate event

Everyone just can’t get enough of GHS!  Recently we’ve been featured in Inside the Kaganoff Kitchen, Karen Salkin’s It’s not about me (But it really is) and Romy Raves!   If you haven’t tried S’muffins yet, you’re totally missing out–as you can see, you don’t have to just take our word for it!  Are you just looking for the right excuse–as if their yumminess isn’t reason enough? Well, picking them up from Platine’s to share with your clients or coworkers is a great one!   Bribing clients and coworkers with sweets is always a positive!   It has a zero percent failure rate, guaranteed!

Did you know Smuffin’s are also perfect for corporate parties?   I recently attended a wonderful corporate party with Interclick at an LA Kings suite.  Everyone had a blast.   Of course, S’muffins and I were the icing on the cake.  Desserts are an essential piece of any event, and remember to fit them into your theme.   Carmen can make S’muffin customized for any corporate party theme. Just ask our friends at Sugar Inc., who just raved about their customized S’muffins!

Which leads us to this week’s tip: what is great go-to dish for corporate potlucks, corporate sports events and parties in general–besides S’muffins, of course?  Pico de Gallo!  Check out this great simple pico de gallo recipe (inspired our good friend, Rachel Kaganoff Stern’s salsa recipe)

1 cup finely chopped sweet tomatoes (make sure they are ripe but not mushy)

½ of a sweet onion, finely diced

juice of ½ a lime

1 clove garlic, finely diced

2 tablespoons cilantro, finely diced

½ teaspoon salt

Toss it all together in a bowl and let it set for at least 2 hours so all the flavors mix well (it is even better if you make it the night before), and serve with your favorite tortilla chips!
