IAEDP’s Holiday Fundraiser


A very good friend referred me to IAEDP (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals) of Orange County to help assist with planning their Annual Holiday Fundraising Event Winter Celebration of Life, Gift of Recovery.  The setting took place at Cheryl Burke’s Dance Studio in Laguna Niguel…you know the Ballroom Dancer who was paired up Season 13 with Rob Kardashian on ABC’s Hit Show “Dancing with the Stars” (HELLO!).  What a perfect atmosphere to have a party like this.  The hardwood floors and mirrors along with a built in bar and lounge furniture helped create the... Read More

ACT Company Picnic in Bakersfield, CA


What an amazing opportunity I was given to assist Ericka & Chantal at Account Control Technology, Inc. with planning their first picnic in  years.  Absolute Events started by helping them first find & book their park location earlier this summer.  We all ended up deciding on a beautiful setting at Alumni Park on CSU, Bakersfield’s Campus. With lots of green grass, a large event space, shade and parking for the 350 people that were expected to attend…it was what I thought was the BEST Spot in Town!  With the location came the option of CSUB Campus Catering which had lots... Read More

DPR Construction Company Picnic

DPR Construction

Sunday, July 31st at Doheny State Beach Here’s to another successful company picnic this past weekend at Doheny State Beach.  All odds were against us with the weather and a power outage in Costa Mesa Sunday morning which made it super difficult to access our picnic supplies and equipment to pull of this day!  But if there is a will there for sure is truly a way and we all made it happen!  Even though we had a wet start the day turned out to be beautiful, warm and sunny!  Everyone was in great spirits and didn’t let a little rain scare them away. The theme for this year’s picnic was Jamaican. ... Read More

Friday, July 15th, 2011… This is the 2nd year I have had the opportunity to help plan Irvine Company Office Properties’ Employee Picnic at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.  This has to be my favorite type of party to plan…an ALL Adult Picnic!  No muss, no fuss, no arts & crafts or face painters, just good old fashion hanging out and having a good time.  We put together a very chill, relaxing afternoon for their department employees which included an Acoustic Steel Drum Band, Lawn Games such as Bocce Ball, Ladder Golf, Cornhole, Washers, & Tug-a-War.  They also reserved Sand... Read More

Memorial Weekend BBQ Idea

turkey burger

Absolute Events, LLC wanted to leave you with a healthy but fun Holiday Weekend BBQ idea. The Turkey Burger is a healthy alternative to the age old beef burger. The extra lean turkey meat is more of a backup singer to the real star, with fresh vegetables and seasonings. This moist, tender meat is a bit more expensive than beef but well worth the few extra dollars.            Grilled Mediterranean Turkey Burgers Serves 4 For those who go bun-less, buy extra iceberg lettuce (chill in fridge) and wrap it up. Ingredients: 1lb of Ground Turkey (extra lean “Jenny-o”... Read More
