Nordstrom Glendale Grand Opening

Food, Fashion and more food. We'd have to admit that this was one of our most ambitious menus to-date. Feeding a group of almost 1000 is something that we're used to, but this particular group of 875 guests was privy to 40 (yep, 4-0) food items. At 31 food and beverage stations. On 3 floors. In the newest, most fabulous Nordstrom around. Our staff had such a great, memorable time preparing for and working this event! What fun to produce items that were such big hits that the bloggers in attendance couldn't help but mention the food alongside their comments about the new store and the fashion, celebrities, and customer service they witnessed.

Our favorites, photographed during the development process:

Deviled Quail Eggs with caviar
Mini Grilled Cheese - to be paired with Tomato Soup Shots!
Handmade Mini Corn Dogs with sweet and spicy mustard
Mini Fish Tacos (aren't those the cutest??)
Mini Shrimp Sopes, Mini Tamale and Red Snapper Ceviche (we substituted the tamale for a Smoked Chicken Quesadilla for the event)
Thai Yellow Curry Chicken Plates
Handmade Pretzel Bites with beer-cheese dip
Handmade Lemon Cake Bites
Mint, Berry and Orange Mousse Cups
Cabernet/Mango Gelee Duo and Brownie Bites with Rum Infusion

Extra recognition goes to Danny and Maya for planning this spectacular menu!

New Orleans Theme Event!

The annual summer party for one of our favorite and possibly oldest clients. Every year they get better and better! We had fun decorating for a Southern, Louisiana theme, and making the food to go along!


Congrats to Kirk for a job well done!

Last night's Sunset Dinner at the Reagan Library was an event to remember! The theme, entertainment, food and decor were styled after the Las Vegas of yesteryear. Take a look at the photos below and take a step back in time!
