December 2013 marked our third annual Santa’s Secret Workshop event, put on by my friends Scout Masterson and Bill Horn of Marque Communications. Each December, the celebrity event benefits L.A. Family Housing, whose mission is to help families transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services. Celebs gathered to kick off the holiday season with Santa Claus photos, crafting, and Jenny Cookies cookie decorating!
Celebrity guests in attendance included Tori Spelling, Busy Philipps, Sarah Michelle Gellar, DeAnna Pappas Denise Richards, Malin Akerman, Tiffani Thiessen, Sasha Alexander, Melissa Joan Hart, Phaedra Parks and many more.
We chose a glittered gold theme for our dessert table, complete with gold cookies, cake pops, cake, and cupcakes! In addition to all the treats guests enjoyed at the event, we sent them home with even more sweets, glittered cupcake favors.
A couple days before the 4th of July, Dan and I decided to host a BBQ. I forgot how much I love this holiday! The colors, the weather, the food, the family and friends, it’s a perfect combination.

At 4:30pm the night before St. Patrick’s Day I thought to myself “I should have a party tomorrow”. YES. Have a party. Who needs sleep? With less than 24 hours notice all my friends showed up in their green clothes, with a green snack to share. How great are they?
I told the kids with all the rain we’d had there must have been a rainbow and a pot of gold left somewhere in the park. And sure enough, they found one!
Those silly leprechans!
