What's Cooking at 24 Carrots?

Gratitude Dinner at Franciscan Gardens

At 24 Carrots, we love creating impactful experiences for our clients. Sometimes that means focusing on the big moments – like confetti blasts and 40’ carousels, but it can also mean gathering at the table together and having heart to heart conversations. 24 Carrots hosted a Gratitude Dinner at our very own Franciscan Gardens to say thank you to some of our incredible partners who have been with us on this 15-year journey.

We love reliving and sharing the experience with you and we’re thankful to have so many ways to not just tell, but show you the curated experience for this Gratitude Dinner. As an extra special treat, our friends at Delovely Details were guests that evening and have been so gracious to share their first-hand experience being treated like the VIPs that they are.

As 24 Carrots does, every detail was meticulously thought of and everywhere you turned was another vignette that tugged at you and invited you in to experience it. 24 Carrots does an amazing job at turning a simple “dinner with friends” into a journey for the eyes, mind, and soul. We are so grateful to work with them as often as we get to and consider them friends. It was a perfect night.

Wanderloft Spring 2019

Wanderloft is an “upscale sip and see for the modern bride” hosted by The Loft on Pine. 24 Carrots had the honor of being part of this trendsetting showcase once more. Inspired by the phrase “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird”, our design incorporated 1,000 hanging paper cranes, a traditional symbol of love and devotion. Penelope Pots brought the design to life with beautiful florals incorporated into Found Rentals birdcages and complementary pieces.

The menu for the day were small plate versions of our Fine-Dining menu. The fan favorite of the night was our Black Cod, Red Thai Curry, Mint, Basil, Cilantro, Pea Sprouts, Nori Rice Cracker. Served alongside Carrot and Papaya Salad and Furikake Parker House Rolls, these bites packed a lot of punch! Menu signage by Delovely Details, incorporating our terracotta color inspo with a punch of pink.

On the way out, our guests also received custom dipped fortune cookies. Inside? A personalized fortune from 24 Carrots!

Thank you to our amazing creative team!

The Yost Theater: Grand Reopening

We were pleased to debut our opening act for the grand reopening of The Yost Theater. This red-carpet premiere included encore-worthy moments: breathtaking decor, theater-inspired entertainment, and classic black and white films playing on the LED screen – and that’s just the opening act!

Some of our favorite first-impression details included a Gatsby girl in the ticket booth, a champagne welcome, and a walk-of-“frame” wall to highlight our creative partners.

The main space hosted breathtaking chandeliers, custom-curated bars and theater-inspired stadium seating, making a grand statement the minute guests walked in.

Food is always the headliner at 24 Carrots, but for this opening, it was absolutely show-stopping.

There were many photo-ready moments, courtesy of designer Lavenders Flowers, complemented by perfect partners who provided luxurious velvet-curtain linens, with our favorite phrases and says shining bright for all to see.

Putting the entertainment value over the top, Luxury Entertainment came in with a jazz trio and DJ mashup playing modern hits, and dynamic lighting was provided by N Effect Productions.

To keep the party going after the curtains closed, we gave flavored bitters as favors.

We are proud to be a part of this historic space – thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate and give it the encore it deserved. The Yost Theater, welcome to the family!

Norm + Sherri | Huntington Bay Club Birthday Party

When the owner of 24 Carrots AND his lovely wife celebrate a milestone-birthday, we naturally pull out all the stops! Norm and Sherri celebrated their 50th and 60th birthdays at the newly-renovated Huntington Bay Club. Surrounded by amazing family and friends, we were so thrilled to be able to spoil this sweet couple who is obviously extra near and dear to our hearts.

The focus of this event was the food, and just like the quote printed on the menu stated, guests were encouraged to “eat like you mean it!”. A fully-custom menu, personalized cakes, and surprises waiting around every corner made for an epic celebration. Cheers to Norm + Sherri!

Huntington Bay Club Grand Opening

Last week we had the honor of welcoming the newest venue to the 24 Carrots family, the Huntington Bay Club. Anchored along a private cove in a picture-perfect seaside marina, we officially opened our doors to the newly renovated waterfront oasis.

With an expansive space and endless possibilities, we approached this grand opening embracing the California chic elements, showcasing our favorite parts of the venue. Playful details like song lyrics and pop culture references were nods to the lively tone of the venue, while elegant displays of impressive floral and design showcased the grandeur of the grounds.

Guests were welcomed to the venue with a beach bike entrance, already setting the tone of a waterfront destination. Upon entering, the Davenport ballroom’s sliding glass doors were wide open, as a seamless extension of the Terrace, the largest space on property. The Davenport welcomed guests with a “You Can Sit With Us” photo environment, and a bar stocked with our favorite lyric-inspired cocktails.

Carefully curated moments on the Terrace included a 20 foot long styled bar table, with immaculately designed florals by Lavenders Flowers and tabletop by The Ark and Tono + Co, a classic ceremony set up with the venue’s in-house chairs, and inviting lounge set-ups by Found Vintage Rentals.

Interactive elements on the Terrace for guests to enjoy were a photo/GIF halo booth by NEffect Productions and a taco carving station, complete with a custom created swing to hang Leg of Lamb, House-Made Beef Chorizo, and Crispy Pork Shank over a wood-fired grill.

Nautical lanterns lit the path, inviting guests to explore the rest of the outdoor property, starting with the Bayfront Beach. Adorned with festive cabanas and daybeds, the white sand beach makes for the perfect backdrop for a playful cocktail hour or sweet ceremony.

The fan-favorite Barefoot Bar was styled for this event as a masculine groom’s lounge, paired with a “Mussels on the Beach” food station. Steamed Mussels in Rose Wine were served in custom tin cans, a nod to Chef Nick’s time at The Cannery. The Barefoot Bar was adorned with a textured lounge, trophies, and leather-bound books, to complement the gorgeous view of the bay and the amazing sunset we had that evening.

Back inside the venue, the Humbolt Room boasted colorful lounge vignettes with beautiful poufs of flowers adorning each architectural column. The room was also host to a Corn Station, styled festively:

Upstairs in the Trinidad Ballroom, the wrap-around windows with sweeping harbor views were no match for the incredible beauty that Lavenders Flowers presented. A suspended installation of a floral ceiling complemented the high ceilings of the space but beyond anything, was truly eye catching and breath taking. Epic tunes by DJ Steve of Elevated Pulse and a Cereal + Milk dessert bar with coffee station completed the experience that had us dancing well into the night!

Special details that truly made the experience complete were sea salt favors for guests to remember us by, star-inspired stir sticks to channel your inner Beyonce, Kanye, or Drake (by the amazing Delovely Details), and custom over-sized menu boards, with calligraphy by A Fabulous Fete (fabrication and painting done in-house at 24C). All of the above was showcased stunningly with gorgeous lighting by Premier Lighting and Event Production, with purposeful care and thoughtful design.

Our vendor team delivered nothing short of perfection, and we are forever thankful to them for showing up in an incredible way. We are honored to share this adventure with so many amazing people, and will cheers to many more to come. Huntington Bay Club, welcome to the family.
