This weekend I helped host/throw an Engagement Party for Allison & David. I have known Allison for 10 years…we met at our first job right out of college, Enterprise Rent-A-Car (a.k.a. the job from hell). I hated my job, but am thankful for the lifelong friendship with Allison that I gained from working there. We started at Enterprise the same week and quit on the same day….which isn’t important to the story, but I just thought I’d share.
Chicken Taco Rings (served with sour cream and salsa) – this was the only non-vegetarian thing served, and Pear & Cranberry tart (on the right of this picture) –
Double Tomato Bruschetta (this was hands down the best thing we served – it was amazing) –
Black Bean & Corn Salad, served with tortilla chips and pita chips –
The whole spread (I missed pictures of a few things, so imagine seeing the miniature chocolate cupcakes with nutella frosting, cajun spiced pecans, mushroom and onion tartlets, and a cheese ball served with crackers in addition to the pictures above)-
Here’s the centerpiece for the table…Brad cut the branches from our backyard, then I spray painted it white and hot glued on the little purple, lilac, and white buds –
The Catering Team, plus Allison – (Amanda, me, Allison, Emily) –
We had a great time hosting the party and it was a complete success! I’m thankful to everyone who lent a hand, helped prep the food, let us borrow serving pieces, and helped pay for the party. Next up – Amanda, Emily and I are opening a catering business. Okay, maybe not, but it was fun.
