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.

Open House Tasting – The Landing Banquet and Lounge

We had a great turn out for our Summer tasting at The Landing in U Village. What a beautiful space! We were thrilled to work with Rasa and Erika of PlanningSavvy.com to bring this fun event together. We chose a light color palette to contrast with the industrial romantic feel of the space and it worked really well! The venue has gorgeous windows with flowy drapes that let in a lot of light and really open up the space. Eleanor with Bash and Bloom created the most exquisite floral pieces that fit just right and tied everything together! Wine World and Spirits poured some wonderful wines to pair with the menu and Carla from Honey Crumb Cake Studio made some delicious treats to share along with having a live cake decorating station where she frosted and put together a fabulous cakes topped with one of her signature sugar flowers. Ashley Webster played some beautiful music throughout the night and AA Party Rentals provided all of the lovely linens and other equipment.
