This single dad’s oldest daughter planned his 40th birthday party and she wanted to go all out in celebration of him with her younger siblings. Every fete takes the lead of the host, particularly for big birthday parties. This one was all about the man of honor hanging out with a small group of friends and family at home. Having visited the kitchen and party space prior to the event - modern, minimalist, wow factor - we deliberately chose upscale decor that best represented the birthday boy and his residence. Thoughtful manly details adorned the hors d'oeuvres platters (deer antlers, red and yellow Fall leaves, kelp seaweed, a nest of twigs) for showstopper bites such as tuna tartar, duck mousse, crispy risotto squares, and beef filet on bone marrow crostini.
Even though the food and trays were fancy, the ambiance remained casual. Sometimes details of a catered event take backseat to what is most important -- the birthday boy’s laidback entertaining style (almost teetering on a “house party” at the end) -- and we embrace this. Every event we cater is different and always reflective of the client’s entertaining style.
"Our dad had the best party evert! Surrounded by his family and friends, WE ALSO HAD YOU! The food, service, the personal presentations just tailored to our home space made the evening complete. A guest even called your trays ‘landscapes.’ Thank you, and thank you again." - Carol W
