Random House - Outlander Retreat Seattle

  Last weekend we had the opportunity of being a part of an awesome event at Fischer Pavillion at Seattle Center. Random House put on a retreat conference to celebrate New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon's new book in her Outlander series and we were so pleased to participate in the fun. We served an assortment of cheese from the British Isles and France, traditional Scottish breads, oatcakes, pickled onion, and chutneys, displayed dramatically with in-period decor, on silver and pewter platters with tartan accents, tray passed Mini Shepherds Pies, Smoked Salmon Oatcake Canape, Scottish Meatballs, Gazpacho Andaluz Shooters, and had Dessert Buffet of Scottish Shortbread Cookies, Lavender Fudge, Traditional Chocolate Fudge, and fruit kabobs with honey yogurt dip. It was a real medieval feast! We also served some fun non alcoholic beverages with ice cubes holding frozen herbs and berries - what a cute look. Our team had so much fun putting this event together and loved being able to create such a dreamy and magical set up. The staff on hand at the event had a blast as well; we even had traditional Scottish outfits on our bartenders - which of course the guests absolutely loved! The biggest compliment we received that day were all of the photographs being taken on handheld devices and guests' smartphones. We knew we had made an impression! Can't wait to check out the new Starz series starting August 9th. But first, need to pick up a copy of Outlander to read 😉 Photos in this blog were taken by Twelve Baskets Catering.

Jodi and Cameron – Dairyland Wedding Sneak Peek

Our owners, John and Jamie Bagge's youngest daughter was married at Woodland Meadow Farms early May and had their reception at the site's new sister venue, Dairyland. It was the perfect day with the rain holding off at just the right moments and our whole team did an incredible job pulling off the most beautiful wedding ever (we might be biased, but it sure felt like it!). Vancouver based Green Ginger Photography did the most amazing job photographing this very special event and they sent us some stunning sneak peek pics that we would love to share with you! There were so many little details that were so carefully and preciously put together, but we'll save that for the next post when we receive more photos from the photographer - You'll just have to wait!   Photography: Green Ginger Photography Venue: Woodland Meadow Farms and Dairyland Catering: Twelve Baskets Catering Rentals: AA Party Rentals, Vintage Ambiance(amazing market cart, vintage lounge furniture, and other gorgeous details), and tent through Grand Event Rentals Flowers, Floral Crowns and Garlands: Bride, Mother of the Bride, and friends Wedding Gown: Mother of the Bride Little Succulent favors in branch vessels: Groom Mismatched Vintage China: Twelve Baskets Catering                     

New Liquor Laws for Washington State thanks to Twelve Baskets Catering owner, John Bagge

Yesterday, our owner, John Bagge, made catering history! With the assistance of Representative Larry Springer, John Bagge was successful in introducing House Bill 2680 which allows catering companies to finally be able to apply for a liquor license without having their own restaurant or storefront. Appreciation also goes to the Washington Restaurant Association and the Liquor Control Board for their generous support. Here is John Bagge with Washington State Governor Jay Inslee getting the bill signed into law! Time to celebrate!

Mary and Kerry, Cle Elum WA – Seattle Wedding Catering

Mary and Kerry love their DAWGS so much they decided to have a UW Husky Tailgate themed wedding! Their colors were shades of purple and yellow and every little detail worked right into their theme from the beautiful yellow bridesmaid dresses and purple floral arrangements to the fresh lemonade and sprigs of lavender tucked into the napkins at each place setting. The private cabin they chose for their ceremony and reception was just breathtaking. They were married overlooking Cle Elum Lake and their reception tent was surrounded by tall trees and lots of natural beauty. Seattle Farm Tables was an obvious choice to go with the fun PNW feel the couple was looking for - and the tables added so much to the look of the reception. And the Lemonade stand?! SO cute! You'll need to scroll down right now to look at it... go on, I'll wait... CUTE right!?!?! I could go on and on about all the lovely little details, and the amazing photos taken by One Love Photo, but I should also point out the awesome thing they did for their favors(I guess I should say lack of favors) - they had donations made in their guests honor to an organization in Africa called The Last Ten Kilometers project that is working on improving health care in rural areas of Ethiopia. What a cool idea. With no further adieu, I give you the menu: Pulled Pork from Roro's BBQ Apple Smoked Chicken Breast served with a blackberry balsamic sauce Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes Corn on the Cob Strawberry Spinach Salad with toasted almonds, gorgonzola, and sliced local strawberries then drizzled with house made white balsamic and poppy seed dressing Gluten free Corn Bread provided by Crave Bakery Traditional Lemonade Iced Tea Strawberry Mint Lemonade Old Fashions and Premixed Mason Jar Cocktails Signature French Macarons Strawberry Shortcake Shooters Cupcakes and Mini Cake from Crave Gluten Free Bakery
