This past Thursday we hosted our Fall Wedding Expo. For anyone planning a fall themed wedding, the Expo was a great opportunity to see fall linens, centerpieces and food stations. The linens featured at the Expo were in jewel tones including burnt orange, emerald green, plum, taupe and chocolate brown. The featured linens included pintucks, embroidered organza, taffeta, burlap and lace overlays, runners and chair sashes. The centerpieces on display were also in the fall colors and coordinated with the linen selections.
Our chef prepared several fall selections including Bacon-Wrapped Chicken stuffed with walnuts and gorgonzola cheese which is always one of the most popular selections. Additionally, our Fall Harvest Station is a great addition to the Cocktail Hour menu and features Pumpkin Ravioli, Butternut Squash Soup and Chicken Calvados (chicken breast smothered with apples and toasted almonds sautéed in Calvados Brandy) accompanied by a cornucopia of pumpernickel and cranberry-pecan breads.
Our Smashed Mac-n-Cheese Bar, All American Station, Pasta Bar and Carving Station were also available for guest to sample. The Smashed Mac-N-Cheese Bar combines two of our guests’ favorites, the Smashed Potato Martini Bar and our Mac-n-Cheese Station. It includes Spiral Mac-n-Cheese with gorgonzola and pancetta, traditional Mac-n-Cheese with American and Cheddar Cheeses and Garlic Mashed Potatoes with your choice of Beef Bourguignon, Chili, Fresh Diced Tomatoes, Broccoli Florets, Scallions and Shredded Cheddar Cheese as toppings. The All American Station features Baby Cheeseburgers, Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Mini Corn Beef Reuben’s served with Fry Cones.
For the sweet lovers, our featured dessert upgrade was our Ice Cream & Pie Dessert Bar featuring our favorite fall pies (pumpkin, pecan and apple), ice cream, warm caramel sauce, walnuts, raisins and chocolate chips. This is a Majestic Gardens’ original and is the perfect finale for your wedding reception.
Our Fall Cocktail Display included the Pumpkin -Tini and the Carmel Apple Martini. The Pumpkin-Tini table featured a pumpkin orange table linen, mini pumpkins, gourds, pine cones and leaves. The Caramel Apple Martini featured a rich gold linen with a glass topped table suspended on a bed of apples and caramel kisses. Increasingly couples are incorporating these custom drink stations into their cocktail hour to customize their reception.
Our Event Design and Décor team had several centerpieces on display as well as custom seating cards and seating boards, coordinating table menus, petal cones and custom table numbers.
