The city of Seattle has many famous tourist attractions, but the Public Market at Pike Place has always held a special place in the hearts of visitors far and as near as the city center itself! The Miller Hull Partnership has just extended the visitor capacity and ability for more artisans and vendors to take part in the market with the new MarketFront at Pike Place! This fabulous modern space has indoor and outdoor areas with gorgeous panoramic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains; a perfect blend of city, culture, and nature. We were so pleased to be a part of Miller Hull's 40th Anniversary party, being in good company just having celebrated 40 years ourselves, where they celebrated their history and hard work in the beautiful setting they created. We are hoping to be able to cater many more parties in this lovely venue! Continue reading "Miller Hull 40th Anniversary and MarketFront Celebration"

When Kim and Shannon from the PNW wedding podcast, Fom Ring to Veil, invited us to be on their show, I was a little nervous! I'm not the type who enjoys public speaking 😉 But since I got to be on the podcast with my dad and Twelve Baskets owner, John Bagge, it was so much fun and we're grateful to have been a part of it! Kim and Shannon made it super easy and great - their blooming podcast is a wonderful tool and resource for anyone getting married or planning a big party.
Our episode just aired today and you can find it on their website or subscribe on iTunes to get each new episode and never miss a tip!
You can also follow along on From Ring to Veil's Facebook or twitter for help planning your big day!

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 😉
