Now that Thanksgiving is past, it's time to start thinking about end-of-the-year festivities and special holiday treats. You might want to check out what Valerie Confections has in store this year at the Los Angeles-based confectionary company's fourth annual fall open house. 

On Thursday (today), the Westlake neighborhood shop (near the corner of Virgil Avenue and Beverly Boulevard) will host tastings of tea-infused truffles. On Friday, owner Valerie Gordon will present her premium loose leaf teas in flavors such as Blushing Betty, Toasted Fig and Blood Orange & Black along with petits fours to complement them.

On Saturday, she breaks out her holiday confections — peppermint bark, nougat finished with edible gold leaf, and a sumptuous Noir & Blanc fruit cake.

Come, taste, look around. The staff will be on hand to answer questions and advise on gifts or catering for the holidays.

Valerie Confections, 3360 West 1st St. (at Virgil), Los Angeles; (213) 739-8149; Today through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
