I was incredibly excited to see how the tasting stations for our reception turned out. Mommy Buttons and I had spent a lot of time coming up with the menu! One of my favorite things about working with Carlouel was the fact that they were incredibly open to any and all suggestions I had. I mean, come on: when my mom and I mentioned how it would be so pretty if the fireplaces had mantles, they went ahead and constructed some for us! And when it came to the menu, the sky was the limit! We worked to create five different tasting stations for our guests to enjoy.
Each of our guests had a lovely salad in front of them to enjoy as they waited for their table to be released to the stations. It was a spring mix salad with Craisins, walnuts, gorgonzola, and my mom’s recipe for honey lime vinaigrette (yep—Carlouel was willing to make any recipe—even our own!). BM L managed to snap a picture of it:
For the tasting stations, we wanted an eclectic mix of food. Although I don’t have a photo of every station’s offerings, I was so happy with how they all turned out, and I think that there was a combination of food that would please any guest’s palate!
