Our station highlighted some of our favorite cooler weather bites, which would be perfect for a fall or winter gathering or meeting.
-Bacon Wrapped Medjool Dates: dates stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon, baked and drizzled with a balsamic reduction
-Chimichurri Steak Skewers: seared seasoned beef tender with chimichurri sauce
-Pear and Gorgonzola Crostini: caramelized d'Anjou pear butter, gorgonzola crumbles and crispy sage served on a warm toast point
After enjoying a crisp fall setting on the transparent tent-covered patio, guests stepped into the beautiful "Columbia Room" which was fully decorated for winter with muted Christmas tones and lots of sparkle and flair.
Meanwhile, downstairs in the "Barrel Room" was a fun mix of spring and summer with lots of bright colors and pops of flowers and sunshine! As you can see below, LightSmiths did an amazing job bringing a fun atmosphere to the space. It makes you really see how versatile this room is and you can turn this blank canvas into any setting you'd like!

Evan and Allison's wedding was at Green Gates at Flowing Lake in Snohomish. It's a beautiful location right on the water with a peaceful green setting for the ceremony and unique rustic covered area for the reception! Some couples even opt for an exciting exit by seaplane to leave the wedding! We were thrilled to be able to serve Allison and Evan and their guests a fun meal with lots of PNW elements throughout the night from cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, a variety of options in their dinner buffet, and a tasty assortment of sweet bites on their dessert station. Thanks to Travis Lawton Photography for sharing these images with us!

We love sourcing products and foods that support a sustainable future. Over the last couple years we have been working on getting rid of disposable plastic in our company as much as we can. We've been pleased to find amazing quality eco products that are not only good for the earth, but easy on the eyes too! Since last year we have been sending wood/fallen leaf and sugarcane products for our drop off catering, and it's great to hear from the companies we source our products from that they are choosing to do good work! We love not needing to sacrifice style for sustainability! Let us know if we can provide some lovely platters for a gathering soon.
Here are some photos from some of our recent compostable drop off events (if it looks like plastic, it is not!) :
Here is some news we've received from the company PacknWood about their impact on reducing carbon emissions. We order a variety of products from them and have always been impressed with their merchandise. Click the icon below for more information.
