Let’s be honest, the holidays are more romantic with snow.  But in Santa Barbara, where palm trees sway and the average winter temperature is 65 degrees by day and 45 by night, snow doesn’t really happen.  So sometimes you have to create your own magic.  And that’s exactly what Bella Vista Designs did for our corporate client Logic Monitor for their holiday party with their snow machine and specialty lighting.  Throw in some fabulous music for a celebratory vibe, fun photobooth and a cookie decorating station, all held at one of Santa Barbara’s most iconic event venues tucked under a magic canopy, and that’s a recipe for a successful party employees will remember for years to come.

We love the menu with which Logic Monitor chose to delight their guests – check out the yummy dessert items, including our famous S’mores Tarts!
