Custom Cake

With all of the cooking and baking shows, the flexibility of having a cake created to perfectly reflect your style and theme is definitely a reality.  And with so much talent in the Twin Cities, you don’t have to travel far to be able to have your cake and eat it, too.

Something New to Crave

Although Crave Catering has been in operation just a little bit over a year now, last night was their debutante ball, as you will. 

Whenever a restaurant starts a catering division, it can be challenging from a branding and from a menu offering.  Execution is different and so is the audience.

With the building success of Crave restaurants, their clientele wanted to be able to have them increase the types and size of events they were able to execute.  And it would appear that the demand is there.

The launch party showcased sushi, paella station, crepe station and a dessert buffet.  I love that Crave Catering is able to offer a crepe station as quite a few caterers refuse to offer it.

With brand colors being a turquoise – aqua blue, white and gray, we took the design to reflect their “fresh vibrant events” tagline. 

Apres Party & Tent Rental did an amazing job with the decor and followed the design to a tee.  Not an easy achievement turning the Smile Network’s offices into an “event space”.  I love the gorgeous linens and all the white draping.  Not to mention the pretty white floor to cover the pinkish brown carpeting. Beautiful!

Thank you to Kelly Brown Weddings for capturing the look perfectly!

Sheree (from Apres), in the gray, cleans up nice!  She spent the whole day setting up and showed up at the party so elegant!

Just Bloomed provided gorgeous football mums attached to manzanita branches with origami cranes to hang over the sushi station.  And a vase with peonies and signage from Mi Mi Design complete the sushi table.

Don’t you love the ice columns from Ice Occasions?  They were lit up in aqua and Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry set a fun rose bowl with twirling orchids.

The milk and mini cookies signified a good night!
