Experience Corporate Woodinville 2019

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.

Hors d'Oeuvres

-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!

Jillian and Michael – February 2012

What a beautiful late winter wedding. Jillian and Michael were married at Clise Mansion last February and Kristen Marie Photography shared these sweet and lovely images with us,  perfectly capturing this adorable couple and their special day. They had a gorgeous modern winter color scheme of slate grey with accents of cranberry and teal, and all the desserts were hand made by family and friends!
