James and Veronica’s Fairytale Thornewood Castle Wedding


Thornewood Castle is pretty much the most unique wedding venue in the state of Washington. Brick by brick, this now 500 year old castle was brought over from England in the early 1900s and rebuilt using the original wood, bricks, paneling, stained glass, and other part. It took three ships to bring everything over to the Pacific Northwest! Not only is this amazing piece of architecture so beautiful, it is also located in the most beautiful, peaceful garden and waterfront setting. We love working at Thornewood, not only for the amazing charm but the current owners take such care in making sure every wedding is flawless. The landscaping is so perfect for the setting and there are countless romantic places to take photographs of the couple; it's a photographer's dream and Megan Montalvo obviously had a glorious time! We just love the images she captured! Continue reading "James and Veronica’s Fairytale Thornewood Castle Wedding"

Alissa and Dan – Green Gates at Flowing Lake

Adina Preston Photography | Green Gates at Flowing Lake | Twelve Baskets Catering Dan and Alissa were married on a warm September day at Green Gates at Flowing Lake in Snohomish. So many sweet touches at this wedding (which Adina Preston captured beautifully!), but one of my favorite parts was their inclusion of a  "family table" instead of the traditional sweetheart table, to be able to include a daughter. So sweet! Also, fun to note, this wedding was pretty much entirely gluten free besides the rolls. Even the wedding cake! Also, don't you just love the color theme? The muted grays and blues are so gorgeous. Continue reading "Alissa and Dan – Green Gates at Flowing Lake"

Experience Corporate Woodinville 2018

Seattle Farm Tables | Pink Blossom Events | Grand Event Rentals | Fena Flowers | The Fix Photo Group We had the honor of participating in the 1st Annual Experience Corporate Woodinville tour this past May and had so much fun meeting all kinds of event planners and working with an incredible team of pros. Most people think of weddings when they think of Woodinville venues, but many of these beautiful spaces also host great events for corporate or social gatherings and meetings! The day of the tour was perfect... nice and sunny, not too hot, blue skies and sunglasses all around. All the guests were saying how much they enjoyed viewing the venues, drinking wine, and eating all the tasty food at each location. One of the coolest parts of the event was that they asked guests to bring items to donate to local school programs who would give the items to those less fortunate in our communities. It was a huge success! We hope that we will have the opportunity to be a part of your next special event in Woodinville, so give us a call today!

Caterers uniting for a Cause

Cater4Cans logo red (1) PUGET SOUND CATERING NETWORK JOINS FORCES TO HELP FEED SEATTLE’S HUNGRY 16 PUGET SOUND CATERERS WILL PARTICIPATE IN A “CATERROUND FOOD DRIVE” THIS AUGUST   (Seattle, WA) During the month of August, 16 regional caterers will help give back to their neighborhood food banks of choice via the collection of non-perishable items for #Cater4Cans.  Food will be donated by staff members, their vendors, and neighbors, who can drop off contributions to the participating businesses.  Each Friday, the caterers will record the number of items they’ve collected along with the respective weight. Final weigh-in will be Thursday, August 31.  Shortly thereafter, distribution will be made to food banks across the city.    The collection idea was hatched last summer, when catering company, DSquared, hosted an internal employee food drive and were able to collect about 500 items of food that was donated to Seattle’s YouthCare.  The contribution provided a big win for both DSquared’s 150 employees and the organization.   In 2017, company owners, David Haggerty, Meg Haggerty, and David Meckstroth, decided to engage the entire Puget Sound catering community to see if they could make an even bigger impact.  They reached out to their colleagues, via their industry group called CaterRound, and within a few days, 15 caterers jumped at the chance to join them.  The catering companies are located across the region: from Georgetown to the south and north to Edmonds, Kirkland and Redmond on the Eastside, and even Puyallup. Nancy Donier, of Kaspars Catering and Special Events in Magnolia is an enthusiastic participant: “Giving back always sounds good to us and to do it with our peers…so much better.”  Shelby Sewell of Foodz Catering in the SODO neighborhood says: “Our company is excited to participate. Cater4Cans will be great for team building while also helping our immediate community.” “We really don’t know what to expect in terms of how much food we can collect in August,” says David Haggerty. “But we do know that giving is contagious and that the employees from all of these companies are really excited to take part in this friendly competition and most worthwhile endeavor. We hope that residents in these neighborhoods will help pitch in and drop off a can, or 4, to boost the impact that we can make.”   PARTICIPATING CATERERS AND FOOD BANKS: Please drop off non-perishables to these local businesses and they will deliver to the corresponding food banks!   BALLARD Cameron Catering University District Food Bank CENTRAL AREA Ravishing Radish Catering Pike Market Food Bank EDMONDS Shooby Doo Catering Edmonds Food Bank GEORGETOWN/COLUMBIA CITY Gourmondo Catering & Café Company Food Lifeline KIRKLAND Twelve Baskets Catering  Hopelink Redmond MAGNOLIA Kaspars Catering and Special Events- Interbay Tent City Terentinocatering.com Queen Anne Food Bank PUYALLUP Toscanos Italian Grill Edgewood Foodbank QUEEN ANNE Madres Kitchen Union Gospel Mission REDMOND Green Apple Events and Catering Hopelink Redmond SODO  DSquared Company- White Center Food Bank Foodz Catering Ballard Food Bank Herban Feast Catering Vashon Maury Community Food Bank On Safari Foods West Seattle Food Bank WEST SEATTLE Duos CateringHighline Area Food Bank Nolas Events West Seattle Food Bank
