Attendees got a chance to participate in different hands-on experiences led by local experts like creating Southern snacks, food styling and stop motion photography. Everyone got to snack on hors d'oeurves made with Laughing Cow cheese and drink specialty cocktails, beer and wine.

I checked out the food styling session with Kristen Hess, taking in tips about using layers and color to make your food almost too pretty to eat! Kristen emphasized keeping a theme in mind when styling your table and menu, play with colors, styles, textures, serving vessels and just have fun taking pics from different angles with good lighting and a good camera!

Then we sat down to 'reinvent' Southern style snacks with Laughing Cow cheeses. Pretty sure I stuffed myself with these delicious snacks! Chef Sarah Simmons aided attendees on creating these mini snacks and says keep it simple, no more than 3 components!

Laughing Cow cheeses and the different flavors they have make it really easy to put together a quick snack. I personally like the Classic Creamy Original Swiss and the Swiss Garlic & Herb. The new Spicy Pepper Jack definitely has a kick!

I really like the onion jam with creamy spicy pepper jack cheese in the flaky cup! The NY Sangria topped off a perfect evening!

End of the night I couldn't resist checking out the social media powered vending machine that spits out prizes when you tweet! My lunch box container prize!
