Summer Kick-off Celebration at the Hotel Irvine Block Party

We attended as a guest of Hotel Irvine

Earlier this month, Hotel Irvine hosted their first annual Backyard Block Party. The culinary celebration helped to raise more than $11,000 for the IPSF that funds educational programs for children in the Irvine Unified School District. All of the top restaurants in Orange County came out to support the event by offering sweet and savory dishes for guests to sample while listening to local bands and playing fun lawn games.


Hotel Irvine has a large Backyard next to their outdoor swimming pool that made for the perfect place for families to gather for the afternoon. The grass area was covered with blankets where parents sat together with their children laughing and celebrating life.


The dishes that shined at the event were…

Twice cooked pork belly buns from Twenty-Eight Restaurant


Kale salad cups from Coastal Catering



Sushi bar hosted by Mizu Sushi



Lamb Kebabs with tomato chutney from Clay Oven



and desserts from Stax Cookie Bar and ChocXO



Hotel Irvine is the perfect place for families to have a local staycation, dine or have a party in their backyard. The Backyard is truly a hidden gem to have your next family reunion, party or special event. The hotel will be having more events throughout the Summer, and stay tuned to learn more here at the OC Mom Blog.
