It was the second annual Experience Corporate Woodinville
event this past Spring and we were thrilled to be a part of it again! Columbia Winery
hosted us and the other awesome caterers on their exclusive list. Each section of the venue featured a different season, and we were lucky enough to be out on the sunny patio for the "Fall" themed area. Tolo Events
designed and planned the theme and did a great job putting everything together. We got to work with a lot of talented event professionals as well and all the guests seemed to have a great time! Check our vendor team list at the bottom of this post. We hope you'll join us next time in May 2020.
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!

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!
