Gardenology Newport Beach Grand Opening Party

  What a spectacular evening!  We had a wonderful turnout, fantastic food, and rooms overflowing with beautiful people and their laughing and smiling faces. It was the grand opening party of Gardenology Newport Beach. And we want to thank Heather Cunningham of Luxe Magazine for all of her help in making the celebration a huge success, and our amazing chef C. Barclay Dodge. We couldn't have done it without you.

  Our guests couldn't stop raving about the hor d'oeuvres prepared by Chef C. Barclay Dodge, now the Executive Chef at Whisknladle in La Jolla. The cherry tomatoes filled with avocado mousse topped with bacon were to die for... as were the fruit and herb skewers with balsamic reduction drizzle. And our delicious cupcakes were made for us by Rachel Hastings. The unique flavor combinations were honey-vanilla with lavender frosting and lemon with mint frosting. And lets not forget the luscious red velvet with cream cheese frosting... simply amazing! 
Contractor Jamie Acetta & Vicki
  Thank you to our contractor Jamie Acetta for transforming this beautiful space and fulfilling our vision for Gardenology Newport Beach. He's pretty cute too, don't you think?

           We love our outdoor spaces in Newport Beach. As the sun went down, the flickering candlelight was beautiful setting for our gorgeous patio furniture.
        Thank you to everyone who came to this event and helped make it a huge success. We raised money for a great cause, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Center and we had a great time. We heard over and over from our guests that they are so glad we opened in Newport Beach, and we really appreciate everyone's support. Thank you!
