We’re excited to share the inside look of the planning experience with you from Candybar Couture:

From Candybar Couture: “We are continuously in awe of the delightful opportunities we’re given to expand our event portfolio. When we were asked to plan The Sketchbook Series Los Angeles workshop, we knew one thing for sure: it was going to be fun! To see it featured on Special Events Magazine is such a treat! To begin, we created an all-star vendor team. We knew The Huntley Hotel would bring the luxurious experience and high caliber. We looped in our most trusted vendors, planner Clarissa Rezende, floral designer Eddie Zaratsian, vintage rental company Sweet Salvage Rentals, and Photographer Karina Pires. The Sketchbook Series is grateful to have incredible sponsors! All our stunning, blooming florals were sponsored by Blooms By The Box. The Sketchbook Series also partners with Copic Markers, Imagination International, Aisle Planner, Esselle SF, and Honeybook. We worked closely with Mary to design a space that brought the lavender inspired look to life. Attendees were given the ultimate VIP experience with hands on teaching, delicious sweet treats and lunch, and even a personal gift!”
