What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

There's so much to be thankful this holiday season that it's hard to know where to start.  We've been so blessed with such awesome friends and family who continue to support Font & Flour!

Recently, a group of us were inspired by a speaker from Dignitas, an organization which focuses on empowering the under-served communities in Africa through the promotion of education.  He shared about how his church hosted a BBQ for the locals...JUST 'CAUSE!  With a little word of mouth, after its 5th annual run, more than 400 people in the community came out.

Well that  inspired one of our friends, Jon, who decided we should do something.  On November 12, we set up a Grill in the middle of the sidewalk, fired up some HOTDOGS and gave away nearly 300 hotdogs to anyone and everyone who wanted one.  The only thing we asked in return was to let us know: WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL this holiday season.

Here are some great photos of the event:

Even Font & Flour made an appearance:

It was so awesome hearing what people were thankful for.

Pumpkin Party


Hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween!

Font and Flour had a jammed packed holiday ourselves with orders for a beautiful San Francisco wedding and a lovely Los Angeles Halloween party.  We got to welcome in winter with some warm Pumpkin Spice cupcakes along with a few other yummy flavors!

And who doesn't love a good Pumpkin Pie!
