The Beach

The Beach

I hope you have wonderful memories of summers spent doing what you love most. I cannot imagine summer without the beach.

My best memories are of long summer days spent going in and out of the ocean. The biggest decision I had to make was which flavor popsicle to choose from the ice cream man who sold them from a big white box on his back.When I was young days involved building drippy sand castles in the  wet sand close to the water - years later I was building them with my daughter who also adored the beach. 
I will always feel just a little happier by the beach - whether it is close to home in Santa Monica, by the Atlantic Ocean on the East Coast or while on vacation on Kauai or another seaside location. Each beach has its own flavor and I have never met one I didn't like.We love summer at Pryor Events.

Flower Arranging

Flower Arranging 101

There are no rules when it comes to choosing flowers. Mix different  textures and combine the colors you love.
It can be visually appealing to mix vessels in different shapes and sizes.  Think outside the box - re-purpose vintage perfume bottles, antique urns and modern cut glass carafes. Make sure to cut the stems before placing your flowers in your chosen container.
We worked with Hidden Garden to create these vibrant centerpieces that mixed low and tall flowers. 
Pryor Events  loves flowers.

Le Mervetty Beverly Hills

In a city with more cupcake shops than you can count it was quite refreshing to discover this little gem. Le Mervetty in Beverly Hills has perfected the round ball of goodness known throughout France as the Merveillux.  It is quite difficult to describe other than to say they begin with meringue and add scrumptious ingredients such  as praline, fresh strawberries, Nutella, coffee and Belgium white chocolate.
The finished product is light and fluffy and not overly sweet as many desserts tend to be. The flavors are subtle yet distinct. They come in different sizes. Pryor Events are fans of Le Mervetty.

The new kid in town is quite stylish.

Farmers Market Food Tour

We recently spent a delightful afternoon on a delicious and informative tour of the Original Farmers Market.
Melting Pot Food Tours offers several tours around 
Los Angeles. Learning while sampling small tastes of food was as fun as it sounds. The tour began with a bit of interesting history on the Gilmore family -  the founders of the market. The market began in 1934. It originally included a trout fishing pond and a drive in theater. The original family still owns the farmers market and they are involved with the operations.

The Farmers Market in another era

                   Ice cream - made the old fashioned way

                                                Mini tacos from Loteria Grill- muy delicious

We sampled Brazilian meat, homemade ice cream, old fashioned donuts, delectable toffee, artisan cheese, authentic tacos and peanut butter that was so fresh it was still warm from the grinder.
Our tour guide Renee was wonderful - knowledgeable and professional yet still very warm and friendly.
We learned that 23 cultures are represented at the farmers market.
It is such a popular meeting and dining location in L A that spaces rarely become available and there is no waiting list. Often vendors in the market hear about vacancies first so a few vendors operate several locations within the market.
Pryor Events are fans of Melting Pot Food Tours
We are looking forward to going on another tour soon. They  also offer tours in East L. A. and Old Town Pasadena as well as private tours.

Cote in Brentwood


Guess where this is. A sun-room at a Malibu beach house or a den at a home on the Cape? 
How about a brand new fantastic nail salon in Brentwood!

The interior of the lovely flagship Cote in Brentwood

Cote offers a fun new approach to keeping your nails and toes looking great for summer. The wonderful bright and airy environment feels more like a beach cottage than a nail salon. All of the 109 shades of nail polish at Cote are completely natural. The polish is never tested on animals and is free of the toxins in most brands. That rare combination of  gorgeous and good for you. 
The colors are rich and unique.  Their polish goes on with a shine and lasts longer than most other brands on the market. Even the bottles are unique - made from Italian glass.  Cote offers manicures and pedicures and irresistible hot stone foot massages. They offer petit services for those with smaller hands and feet - children under twelve. 
Cote also sells wonderful products such as candles, scrubs, lotion and tote bags. Great gifts to stock up on or keep for yourself. Welcome to the neighborhood Cote! 
Pryor Events are definitely fans of Cote
