This past Wednesday we hosted our Fall Bridal Expo for 2009.
The Expo featured fall themed centerpieces and table displays as well as our Fall Harvest Station
for Cocktail Hour, our Autumn Delight Dessert Bar
and our Fall Custom Cocktail Display
. Fall weddings are increasing in popularity each year and for 2010, the Fall season looks to be the biggest season for weddings.
Our Fall Cocktail Display included the Fall-Tini and the Carmel Apple Martini. The Fall-Tini table featured a pumpkin orange table linen,
Falltini Cocktail Display
mini pumpkins, gourds, pine cones and leaves. The Caramel Apple Martini featured a rich gold linen with a glass top suspended on a bed of apples and mini caramel squares. Increasingly couples are incorporating these custom drink stations into their cocktail hour to customize their reception.
In keeping with the fall theme, we featured our Fall Harvest Station which is available for cocktail hour. The Fall Harvest Station features Chicken Calvados (sautéed chicken breast smothered in apples, toasted almonds and Calvados brandy sauce), Pumpkin Ravioli and Butternut Squash Soup with a cornucopia of pumpernickel and cranberry-walnut breads.
Our Fall dessert station was our Autumn Delight Dessert Bar featuring
Pumpkin Waffle Toppings
pumpkin waffles with an assortment of toppings. The pumpkin waffles were accompanied by apples sautéed tableside, creamy vanilla ice cream, warm caramel sauce, walnuts, raisins and chocolate chips. This dessert station was definately the hit of the evening and several couples who have fall weddings for 2010 and 2011 decided to add the Autumn Delight Dessert Bar to their menus.
At our next Expo in January, we will highlight winter weddings and showcase stations that in the winter theme. Check back for more information on our next Expo. Until next time…
