I love October… the crispness in the air, and the array of gorgeous colors surrounding us in nature. We are working our way through a very busy fall season, including catering an annual fund raiser for a local non-profit every year.

This is an event I really look forward to every year.  Our client is a true gem and an absolute pleasure to work with.  She gives us great flexibility in the creative process which allows us to do what we do best.  As with all of our jobs, we work to make each event unique to the personality of the client.

Our linen supplier had a stunning brand new cloth which was embroidered with beautiful leaf designs, which we incorporated for the guest tables.  We worked with a green pattern for the buffet and accented with lady apples, a dramatic topiary and clusters of pillar candles.

Our menu was highlighted by numerous stand outs for passed hors d’ oeuvres, including Warm Goat Cheese, Potato and Bacon Tart; Buffallo Mozzerella with Argula Pesto; and Grilled Scallop perched on a Stainless Steel Fork.

The dinner guest’s particularly enjoyed the Halibut Filet in Red Pepper Pesto and Balsamic Glazed Potatoes.

Dessert was a decadent composition of dishes in tiny vechiles such as Strawberry Shortcake, Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie with Vanilla Milkshake, and Pound Cake with Chocolate Drizzle.

I give tremendous credit to our service staff on this event.  They really have to hustle the entire evening due to the large footprint of the event.  They went above and beyond to ensure flawless execution.  I am very proud of them.

There are some real exciting events coming up which I looking forward to sharing, so check back soon.

Until then,
