SUMMER DINNER PARTY DETAILS:
This is what Alison said about planning the party-“Who wouldn’t enjoy a simply delicious and beautiful soiree on a summer’s eve? Alicia with Pekuliar Treasures teamed up with me to showcase some of her skills. I was thoroughly pleased with how the whole thing turned out.
Alicia wanted to go with deep eggplants and silvers for her color pallet and everything looked lovely. We used my Damask Square invitation and made a few alterations to fit the occasion.
The menu was carefully prepared by Alicia and her husband who own a catering company, Lovable Foods. They are dedicated to delivering beautiful, tastefully prepared, FRESH food. A lot of their ingredients are grown on their very own little farm.
On the menu were Salmon Sliders with Asian Slaw, Coconut Shrimp, and chilled Cucumber Soup. Their offerings were both delicious and beautifully displayed.
Alicia also wanted to use a Menu Card that complimented the whole ensemble along with drink cards for their popular line up of beverages. I chose to transpose the graphics on both the menu card and the drink cards so that gorgeous eggplant was really shown.
Alicia and I created a table that was both elegant, simple, with a casual air. Simple bouquets with flowers one could find at their local grocer were hand cut and neatly arranged in little mason jars. Other unique touches were the lanterns, the beverage cart outside on the patio, and the glasses labeled with chalk.
This party could truly be used for a dinner, brunch, or bridal shower. All the details could be transformed into an elegant soiree anytime of the year.”
