The Rise of the Food & Beverage Pop-ups

   

 

 

Food and drink pop-ups have become very popular these days offering an exclusive dining experience whether an unexpected location, a personal interaction with the chef, or a unique menu or theme.  These types of events cater to the "experiential diner" who craves not only amazing food, but also an exciting dining experience.  
Here are some of our favorites... enjoy!

Street Art in L.A.

Artists have traditionally challenge art by situating it in non-art contexts questioning the existing environment with its own language.  Street artists have used public spaces as a powerful platform to communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values.  urbana sacs™ wants to share with you some of those artistic expressions in the streets of Los Angeles.

Textured Spring Blooms Make a Perfect Hostess Gift

Creating a Passover or Easter holiday dinner for family & friends is a big undertaking for any host or hostess. A flower arrangement can always bring a smile on their faces. The arrangement you see here was created mixing a variety of flower elements in our Urbana Sacs which any host will enjoy reusing after the festivities are over. For this delicately colored display, large full-bloom peonies were combined with burgundy succulents known as Rosettes of Aeonium and sprigs of French lavender. Even the Urbana Sac—in this case, our chocolate large creative sac—provides an additional layer of texture, plus protection for the interior glass vessel.
