Hi Friends! Every year we are privilege enough to help our wonderful client with their annual Guac off. This is a wonderful day of getting friends together, great food and of course the famous guacamole competition. The vibrant colors and the eclectic use of cloths, different floral vessels , I knew there would be fantastic energy and wonderful memories!  Danny from Rose Story added Mexican beer bottles and other drink containers for her flowers this year to change things a bit fm last year…her roses can not be more beautiful. The Kitchen for Exploring Foods always does such a beautiful job with their buffets…I could cry everytime I see their work…loving the t-pee which was filled with kids beading bracelets. Thanks Michelle! Check out the candy shop…we found vintage galvanized buckets/tubs to go with the look of the party. We had the names of the candy printed on wood grain paper and used a font that looked like it was burnt into the wood. We also had a fresh pie station. Cassie from my office came up with a fantastic idea for name plates for the pies. She bought black granite coasters and miniature easels  and with chalk ( yes I am having a chalk obsession right now) we wrote the flavor..the cloths were solid underlays with wonderful mix runners and throws placed on top. Each napkin was tied with a baby avocado which is a tradition for this party.We had great Chefs judging the competition even my buddy Chef Jamie West from the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa helped with choosing the champion. Wonderful prizes given out to the winners. As the guests left we passed out Kraft bags filled with avocados and custom chocolates by Generations of Lee Gelfond Chocolate. They took mini crates and filled with mini avocados made out of chocolate ( www.gelfondchocolate.com)..so sweet :) Special thanks to Amy who did a great job! Enjoy the pics! xox Mindy
Amy from our office did an amazing job! She is also 7 months preggers! Amy is standing with Michelle from Lehr and
Black who handled our Bead Station
The guests enjoyed Antonios Tacos while they made their guacamole
The guests had to decide from 75 entress which gucamole they liked best…
Each person who entered were assigned a number and were given the avocados. It was fun to see the
guests arrive with their secret ingredients.
 
and just in case someone forgot some special touches we had them!
this was our entry…. we lost
